Tuesday Tales- March 24, 2015- Catch

This week’s word for Tuesday Tales is catch. Check out all the other writers and their use of the word here. Some great stories out there for sure.

“Travel advisories are now in effect. The storm has made a turn and up to eighteen inches of snow are expected overnight. It’s recommended that everyone stay where they are for the foreseeable future. The city transit system will be closing at eleven p.m.  If you can get safely home in that time, do so but don’t take any unnecessary risks.”

A mass exodus from the bar occurred as soon as the lady announced the closure of the subways.

Ian looked at Lanett. “You could make it home if you left now. As much as I’d like to see you home, I’ll stay with Simon in case he needs help.”

“I’m staying as well. I’ve been on the subway after a baseball game and that’s nothing like people in a frenzy to get home. No thanks. I’ll take my chances on having to sleep on the floor of a bar over the squish of humanity under the ground.”

“You may regret those words.” Ian glanced down. “That floor is disgusting. I don’t think there’s a cure for whatever you might catch from sleeping down there.”

“Hey, it’s your brother’s place. I can’t help it if he doesn’t clean it.”

“The important parts are pristine. The carpet, not so much.”


  1. I think I would rather sleep in a bar then be crammed into a subway train as well. Great snippet!

    • I know I would. My superhero name is Claustrophobia Girl. Lol


  2. Oh boy, great scene! Love his response.

    • Thanks Flossie.


  3. Love his comebacks 🙂 Great scene … and yes I agree with her reasoning!

    • Thanks Iris. I agree with her too. Lol


  4. I’d have to a agree about the subway. If they are trapped at the bar, they can always clean before they try to sleep on the floor.

    • Amen, Joselyn!

  5. Very clever way to get them together overnight. I’m anxious to hear what happens on that not-so-clean floor.

    • Lol Jean. Love that. Am I’m curious too.


  6. Is it bad that my first thought was “she isn’t going to want to sleep on a bar’s floor?”
    Great excerpt! I loved it!!

    • Lol Tricia. Thanks.
