The weather here in Georgia has taken a nosedive. It went from being in the high seventies to being in the high thirties. Like winter.
My boy didn't get the memo and went outside wearing shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt.
"Dude," I said when I saw him. "It's cold. You need to change."
He shrugged and went upstairs to find more clothes. When he came back downstairs, he had on a sweatshirt, socks, and shorts. Almost appropriate.
"Your legs will freeze," I said.
He shook his head. "No, they won't. My leg hairs are natural pants!"
Now for something completely different: It's time for the IWSG question of the month.
This month's question is: If you could use a wish to help you write just one scene/chapter in your book, which one would it be?
Well, I've been working on more books for my Bubba and Squirt series. I've come up with a plot thread that can go through the entire series. It involves a villain. I'd like to use that wish to write the scene in which Bubba, Squirt, and all their friends they've met along the way defeat the villain and his cohorts, and rescue a very important person. It's going to be epic, but I'm not sure exactly how it's going to work, because it'll have to tie in everything from all previous books. It's taking massive brain power to figure it out. A wish might help!
That sounds like a great idea! The book, not relying on leg hair for warmth. And has it ever been cold lately...ReplyDelete
The other day, Bubba wore jeans. It was actually quite odd to see him wearing something other than shorts!Delete
I like the idea of the villain in the story. It would make it interesting.ReplyDelete
The idea of a villain would give Bubba and Squirt a good reason to have to keep going through the hole in order to defeat it.Delete
That's a great way to tie all the books together.ReplyDelete
Kids don't look at weather reports, I'm certain. I've seen some seriously questionable choices in attire, either way too cold or way too hot. Although, your son might consider moving to California. I know several male persons who spend the entire year in shorts.
Most boys wear shorts all year in Georgia, too!Delete
I admire Bubba for ignoring the wintry weather and doing his "area code 305 - Don Johnson - Miami Vice" thing. I have been in shorts and short sleeves every day for the last month or more. If Bubba thinks his hairs will keep his legs warm, his legs must resemble those of Shultz. :) When is Bubba's next appointment with the groomer? :)
I like your wish. It would be cool if your main characters would go back in history and intervene to prevent an assassination or something of that nature. It always fascinates me when I see that theme explored on TV series like Timeless, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, 11.22.63 and so on.
Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Sherry!
Bubba definitely needs to see a groomer! He's getting close to Schultz when it comes to body hair. :)Delete
Enjoy your week as well!
Bubba is a typical teen, like the ones I see in the high school across the street. I could be shivering *inside* in two sweaters and leg warmers as I look out the window and see them in the yard, outside, walking in sweaters ***and shorts.*** it's a thing.ReplyDelete
Yes. He wears sweatshirts, but very rarely anything other than shorts.Delete
Did you know that in England they use to make boys wear shorts throughout the year until they were 12 or something, even in winter.ReplyDelete
Wow! I didn't know that. England gets cold! That seems like a cruel thing to do.Delete
Mother Nature is really messing with us this year, isn't she? But Bubba isn't alone. I see lots of people out and about in shorts and flip-flops. They don't CARE how cold it is... it's spring, dadgum it!ReplyDelete
If you think a wish will help you develop that cool plot thread, I'll send one your way, but my bet's on you having the brain power to get 'er done all by yourself.
Mother Nature sure is crazy! It's hard to know how to dress!Delete
Thanks for the confidence on my brain power. It's been kind of fun trying to figure it out.
That's so funny about Bubba and his pants. Even though we live in the northeast, we see kids with shorts and tee shirts in the winter. Yikes.ReplyDelete
I'm sure your brain power will know exactly what to do with your new book, no worries.
I think the kids in Cincinnati wore shorts a lot, too. But not as much as the kids in Atlanta.Delete
I live in Michigan and as soon it warms into the 30's kids here start wearing shorts too. I had to laugh when reading about your son.ReplyDelete
Epic chapters are hard. Good luck with yours.
30 is a bit cold for shorts. I don't break mine out until it's at least 78!Delete
I believe you do possess massive brain power, Sherry.ReplyDelete
Bubba cracked me up with his hairy leg comment.
I saw my grandson this past weekend and I asked him how he liked Bubba & Squirt. He said, "It's in my top ten for books." I asked why. "He said, "It kept my attention of course!" He just turned 10-years-old.
Wow! That totally made my day! Top ten for books! Woohoo! Tell him thanks for his great comment, and that I'm glad he enjoyed the book.Delete
A...what? Hairy legs would save from cold?ReplyDelete
Haha! Yeah. My boy things his hairy legs will keep him warm. Gotta love that. :)Delete
I love the story line, can't wait to see what journey you take them on. Living in the South you never know from one day to the next what the weather is going to be.ReplyDelete
It can get kind of crazy! But I'm glad I'm not up north where they're still getting snow.Delete
The idea of pulling a villain the entire way through sounds terrific, and I wish you luck on getting everything to fall together right.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tonja. I'll need to talk to Diane about the villain. The second story in the series sets things up for what can happen with the villain, but it doesn't end as a cliffhanger. If I go on past the second, the series will have to keep going until the whole thing is resolved.Delete
hope, everything goes well with you and yours...ReplyDelete
have a great day
Thanks! Hope you have a great day as well!Delete
Haha! I have a fifteen year old that has the same attitude about cold weather. *And it just starting snowing here, again. Blah...*ReplyDelete
My attitude is, if you want to be cold, go for it. Not my problem!Delete
Those kids are amazing! I'm sure you're writing down these exchanges for future stories.ReplyDelete
Yes. My kids have given me a lot of material for stories. I probably could do a comic series with all their stories.Delete
I love a good series tie together! Hope you figure out the epic meetup with the villain!ReplyDelete
I've got the characters figured out, and the motivation of the villain. Exactly what the end will look like is still in question. I'm sure I'll have fun figuring it out.Delete
All the best with more books in your series!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm planning for more. Hopefully it will work out that they'll be published!Delete
My kids will swim in a freezing cold pool, and won't come out even when they are shivering still :)ReplyDelete
Yeah. That's crazy. My son did that a lot. He claimed to be a polar bear. I almost believed him!Delete
I think he can withstand cold on his legs hence he didn't need the pants.ReplyDelete
Awesome about the series.
Since his legs aren't his core, I suspect the cold doesn't bother him as much there.Delete
I’m with Bubba. There’s no need for long pants when it is above 30 degrees!ReplyDelete
There's no way I could do that. I'm such a freeze baby!Delete
Maybe I should start growing my hair on my legs! LOL!ReplyDelete
Your idea for your book sounds great Sherry! Good Luck! Big Hugs!
