A Dish of Eggrolls

…And then there was this guy, Jared something. No, Jason. Jeremy? Well, it starts with a “J” and that I’m sure of. Anyway, this guy, let’s just say it’s Jared, I’m 80% sure it’s Jared anyway, he caught my eye earlier. I mean, it was a crowded cafeteria, there was so many, many, many people, yet he still caught my eye! Imagine that? Like honestly, what are the chances of such a cute guy being able to catch my eye? And you know the more interesting part, it wasn’t just an eye-to-eye (which, by the way, was a cosmic experience by itself). A few minutes later, tray in hand, he grazed my shoulder. I mean, there was three feet to his other side, yet he still grazed my shoulder! I am never gonna wash this shoulder again. And then, when we were sitting down, I saw how he bit into his pie, like a rodent nibbling on a piece of carrot. Ew. Disgusting, no, no, not that. It’s like how a little child eats ice cream, except not ice cream, not even cold, but a pie. Anyway, what I mean to say is that his eyes lingered. Whose eyes linger when he eats pie, right? It was one minute but that minute was charged with all the energies. Within that time, I could see how we both wanted the same number of children – Four! What are the odds of that happening? This is perfect, this is like a dream come true! Perhaps, maybe tomorrow, then, he’ll ask me out and we could start this journey together. But for now, let’s – hey, oh my god, that guy is totally checking me out – wait, sorry, what was I saying?




THIS IS THE TAROT CHALLENGE, a 78-day writing challenge where everyday I pick out a random card from my tarot deck and write something about, against, inspired by, based on the card by the day’s end. The works can range from poetry to fiction to drama. When the card is from the major arcana, the title of the work should be the card name. When the card is from the minor arcana, the title can be different but the card drawn should be revealed at the end.
