Frain Sings the Blues

“It’s my instrument of death,” Crash screamed from stage. “And it’ll cause your wrath,” he finished, unable to find a suitable rhyme for his dark song.

Backstage, disturbed by the crowd leaving instead of begging for an encore, Crash went on a rage when I asked about his songwriting skills.

“Meth would work,” I suggested.G

“Yaaasss,” Crash screamed. “Gimme some now.”

“No, no, I don’t have any meth. I meant it’s a good rhyme for death.”

His angry eyes grew three sizes. He hoisted his Fender. Twirled it above his head like a cowboy with a lasso. Flung it at me like I was a calf.

His G-string snapped. And then my neck.

Not exactly Roberta Flack killing me softly with her song, but thank goodness the weekend finally showed up. I’m gonna need Sunday to recuperate. This daily dying gets a little exhausting. See y’all back here Monday morning when I get in trouble again.

    1. We revere Bob Gibson in this household. No way we break a Gibson guitar or Gibson anything else. Too valuable. As opposed to, say, my life! So what am I talking about, right? Sheesh, I long for the day I start making sense.

  1. YAY! This post finally made it to your blog. I was hyperventilating without the story of your death today.

    How will I make it thru Sunday without your death? Hmmmmmm. Maybe I’ll have to orchestrate it myself =)

    PS – not sure first person POV of a murder victim works, especially at the end. But I understand. After six deaths you’re due for some recuperation.

    H is for ham, horse, hooters, hockey puck, helmet, hippo?

    1. I’ve read a few books written in first person by the person who died. The Lovely Bones (No, I’m absolutely NOT comparing anything I’ve written to Lovely Bones) is a good example. But I see what you’re saying there. I wonder if I have any more in the queue that way? I was playing around with M today and it was me telling the story post-death, so I may have that problem again. But the story wasn’t coming together anyway. I’m having a devil of a time with M, which seems weird.

      Anyway, thanks for the check in, but try not to enjoy my demise so much!! I tried hockey puck for H, couldn’t get it to come out right, so you had a good guess there. It was my original H plan.


    1. Eww, gout would be a lousy way to go. But I don’t know if anyone could murder you with gout. Maybe some weird mad scientist could figure it out. Never fall into a debt you cannot repay to a mad scientist. My best advice for the weekend.

    1. Yes, no coincidence that it was Crash’s G-string. Makes the death even worse if you ask me. Oh, won’t you asking me? I always think somebody’s asking me for my opinion!


  2. I’ve had the same problem with my G- strings although I’ve never killed anyone cos my knicker elastic broke. Must be something to do with being a rock star…

    Great idea for A to Z. Like it a lot.
