The phone rang at 4am

“Hello, who is this?”

“This is your subconscious and this is the call you’ve been expecting. Now when I reach number 1 you have to wake up, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.”

This is the weekend challenge.

This week, you’re all starting with the same 5 words and your task is to turn it in to your own story in only 33 words. The 5 we have given you are NOT to be counted in the 33 words.

  1. Quite a wake-up call!


  2. Hypnosis by phone? These few sentences could lead so many places. I like this.


  3. Excellent! A call from your subconscious. That’s brilliant! I need to remind my subconscious to dial in more often. :o) Great one!


  4. Loved it. It’s gonna keep me up tonight, but loved it.

  8. Hypnotizing yourself to wake yourself hypnotically. Funny!


  9. Hahaha! I like this. I think my subconscious has actually done this to me from time-to-time.


  10. Ha ha!! Nice take. booguloo!


  11. Chuckle.

    Mine’s early. It’s only 12:50 a.m. here. I didn’t know it could give me a few more hours.


  12. My internal clock overrides any external clock anyway, so telling myself to wake up would surely work.
