This is a speech I wrote for a Liar’s Contest that I was in. The last line was how you needed to end it. I thought it may be a good prompt.
I was out for a walk at night. I needed some fresh air and some exercise. I wanted to clear my head. I was walking down my block and walked all the way to the park. It was a lovely evening. The air was clear, there wasn’t hardly any wind but just a slight cool breeze that gently blew my hair away from my face. I was wearing a light jacket, a pair of sweats and a t-shirt. I decided to sit on the swings at the playground when I heard a noise.
I looked behind me but there was no one there. I heard the bushes rustle and I decided it was time to get out of there. As I began to walk away, the bushes started rustling more and I began to run. I tried not to look behind me but I couldn’t help it. Out of the bushes jumped a big fat cat. It mewed and hissed at me. I thought I was having a heart attack. I told it to shoo. Then I giggled to myself about how I let my imagination get the best of me. After this debacle and a few degradations to myself, I slowed down and headed out of the park.
The next thing I know, this hairy creature jumps out of the shadows. I start to run but this creature is fast. Is it a dog? A rabid beast out for blood? Where can I find silver…am I being chased by a werewolf? Maybe it’s bigfoot? I keep looking behind me and it is gaining on me. I think I know a shortcut to get out of this park. I am not a fast runner due to these really short legs and small gait. Thank goodness I have been going to Bootcamp to strengthen my running skills but I am not sure it is enough.
As the creature gains on me, I feel heat burning on my back. I believe this creature has lasers coming out of his eyes and he is burning my clothes off little by little. I take off my jacket because I know that there is a hole burning through it. Next my shirt starts to burn. I start to zigzag so his lasers cannot burn me. I feel a draft and I notice my tush is bare…I am wearing a thong. I rid myself of my pants. I finally reached the end of the park and ran out onto the sidewalk. I kept running until I got to the street.
As I ran to the street a police car was driving by and I waved it down. The policeman asked me why I was dressed the way I was and I explained the whole story to him.
So Mr. Officer, that is why I’m out at midnight in my underwear.
