tonight’s writing challenge involves these tags: fire pit, honey, wooden nickel, cilantro, stars

i am a fire pit.   bright and welcoming under the late night stars.  in the morning kind of a pile of ashes.

black light party time is coming.  fire pit season is on it’s way. we’ll meet at my house after dark, set up the lights, pop open some beers and wait for the night life to fly in.  transparent wings and round, protruding eyes. i can’t wait!

i’ll be tired the mornings after, but wake up while at work and rush home to photograph the dogs and the resident bees. (mind you, these aren’t honey bees. they’re native bees.  they won’t kill me, i swear!)

for snacks i’ll make a salad with black beans, corn, cumin, cilantro, balsamic vinigar and red onions. . . but. . . bella and buzzy will eat pentatomid bugs instead.

save up your wooden nickels and you can buy into the fun.  primordial night life.  flying things in your hair.  pickles herding beetles.

(tags i’m leaving…at your convenience:  accidents, usb, being john malkovich)

“i am a fire pit. bright and welcoming under the late night stars. in the morning kind of a pile of ashes.” beautiful!

“entomologist…with beers” sounds like a good band name.

But my dad always told me not to take any wooden nickels! Now what am I going to do?

I see that buzzybeegirl has a penchant for the beer!

Comment by forkboy

which is why we love her forky! that and her innate bravery and good nature.

mtp, you don’t need nickels. just show up with a 6 pack and a folding chair!

dennis, it’s always a good idea to listen to your dad.

Comment by goodbear

can I still come over even if I don’t have wooden nickels? I have wooden bee nests.

buzzy…without you there are no bug nights! and you have to go to the garlic harvest with me, too.
