Do you wake up groggy? I hardly ever wake up groggy. When I wake up, I’m up, no matter what. Many mornings I literally jump out of bed and bounce a couple of times before my feet settle on the floor… Of course, the downside to this is that I’m a chronic insomniac and sometimes I go three or four days without sleep for no reason at all. Still, I was groggy today. For most of the day, actually. It’s always a very strange experience for me. Anyway, I have a scene challenge for you. So, if you don’t already know the rules: I give you a prompt and you write a scene off of it. Try to keep your scene under five hundred words, and try to keep it in the same tone as the introduction. If I give a line that is very dark and depressing, then I don’t want to see a scene about a drunken monkey in a tutu…it just doesn’t fit. If I do give you a line about a drunken monkey in a tutu, then you should probably try for a funny scene.
Your prompt: “‘Paul frowned and nodded. “Yes, your honor. That’s when I cut his head off…'”
