Nothing like the last second to respond to a prompt!
It gave me time to think about several UNEXPECTED things
that have happened this week!

One morning my husband had to call our plumber back. His wife answered with an abrupt 'HELLO'?? My husband asked if he could please speak to Ron. Then my husband over heard her say " Hey Shithead, it's for you! Why didn't you answer the phone? I had to get off the TUR-LIT to answer it!"
My husband found it difficult to hold in the laugher and not say "hey shithead" when Ron came to the phone! ( talk about appropriate nicknames!!)

Two our UNexpected surprise, we got an electronic peppermill in the mail from a loved one for no occasion, other than that they know my husband loves pepper.

Three UNEXPECTED EXTRA pounds- NO Comment!

Four the first time, I tried Panera Breads Turkey chickpea Chili and it was Unexpectedly DELICIOUS!

Five times after I got home from Panera, I UNexpectedly needed to R..U... N... to the bathroom!

it's SIX minutes to my midnight deadline for the Writers Island prompt.... and I've unexpectedly given out way to much information.

SEVEN unexpected adorable geese were in the middle of a busy road tonight. I had to stop my car and wait behind other cars for quite a while, for them to decide to cross.
After they crossed and I proceeded I realized why they were taking so long. One poor little guy had apparently been a hit and run victim. The other 7 weren't just crossing, they were in mourning. Unexpected tears welled up in my eyes and I haven't been able to stop thinking of their poor sad hearts.

Poor geese. You made me laugh first, then you made me want to cry. Good job with the prompt. I couldn't think of a thing.

What a wonderful mix of everyday passing realities. But the geese story was really just so sad.
