Another Day.

Photo Prompt (c) Sandra Crook

“You walk up to the man, ask for directions to the Church. He will direct you towards a stone Fountain. You light a cigarette, take three puffs, stub it out and walk in the opposite direction”.

“Got it”.


“Cut” boomed the loudspeaker.

“I said ask for directions, not head there yourself”

“Take two”.

“Cut”. Again. “You ask for directions, not have a discussion”.

“Take three”.

“Cut! You take three puffs and walk, not sit for a smoke and be in a trance”.

“Take four”.

“Cut! I said, walk, not fly!

This was going to be a fuckin long day.

About asarpota

Like to fly, but at the same time, quite on the ground, and do tend to be realistic. Very passionate about what I believe in and do, no patience with idiots, not a perfectionist, but trying to come close to it.... Not a nerd btw, value my friends very much, can criticize and have the b***s to take it on my chin. A spade is a spade!!!

    Maybe if he just followed the directions, he could do his scene and enjoy the rest of the day off! Some people just have knack… 😀
