ABC – its easy as 123

Plinky prompt: Create a short story, piece of memoir, or epic poem that is 26 sentences long, in which the first sentence begins with “A” and each sentence thereafter begins with the next letter of the alphabet.

In a long tradition (at least 2 posts now) here I will take a Plinky prompt and proceed not to really follow it at all. The result on this occasion is this soothing bedtime ABC.

C is for catastrophe! D is for disaster!

E is for the end of this post, and F is for get there faster

Occasionally Lola stops running

Occasionally Lola stops running
