Is play guitar in Tampico an idiom?
Nope, I couldn't come up with one for that. Thanks for commenting Ted.
This has been such a fun prompt. Great job :)
lum, so sorry for this tale of dashed hopes! But I sure loved it:)
In in order to be able to use "in the red", I had to exaggerate a little, but I did take a hit in the crash. I still plan to retire and write and play guitar. Thanks Valerie.
My... aren't you full of 'em?
Well, people have told me I'm full of it, so I guess that's the same thing. Thanks Ted.
That's a lot if idioms! Yeah, the market crash changed retirement for a lot of folks. Here's hoping you get to play your guitar in Tampico :)
Thanks Janna. I think I will get to write and play sometime soon.
Well done and intriguing!
Thanks Maggie! :)
this was AWESOME. and sad too, esp if it's grounded in truth. DAMN WALL STREET ;)love visiting your space.
No worries! I took a hit in the crash but I'm doing just fine. I'm happy with my work for now and will eventually retire and write and play guitar all the time. Thanks for your kind words and comments Kir! ;)
right there with ya, lumdog . . . well, not the geeetar part cos I can't play . . . but the c(r)ash flow thing, yeah, right there with ya.hang in there - good piece.
Thanks Barbara. Im sorry if you were affected this way. Many people were.
Here's hoping you're back in the black soon, and southward bound.
Yes to that on all counts. Thanks Tara.
Well, it is looking like the person with the most idioms might take the prize this weekend. So far, you are running neck and neck for the lead. Well done, Lumdog. :)
Thanks Tom, but there's, at least, one entry with more and I don't think the one in my tite counts. Lol! :)
'you are never too old to learn'... Whose a clever little 'idiom' then? ;-)
Thanks Rambly. Yeah, I want to keep on learning.
Your luck will come around. It has to!
Harkening back to the most recent prompt, I've been lucky, so I can't complain. Thanks for your good vibe Draug.
Dang it! And I just heard that there was an opening for a guitar player at a bar in Tampico! Great job, Lumdog!
Thanks Tina. I'm on a bus to Tampico! :)
Sorry about the bad luck. Wonderful piece though. A script writer and guitar player, sounds like paradise. I can't play an instrument but if you ever need one of those chics that softly bang a tambourine, let me know. :)
Thanks Donetta. You'd be great on the tambourine. But, I think there are some rowdy people in the bars in Tampico! :)
I'm in idiom heaven with this one Lumdog!! HA!
Thanks Linda. Mission accomplished. :)
Let me read between the lines, its difficult making a living as a screenwriter. lol
Yep. And same goes for guitar player. But I bet I could get all the Tequila I want! :) Thanks Ann.
Thanks for the shout, I love your poem too, I think we are scrabbling around but being in the red is better than being in the black or the dark!! :)
Yeah, being in the dark would suck like the people I wrote about in my last post about gay marriage.
Another combo - This is terrific.
Thanks Kelly. :)
Hopes may be dashed, but there's more than one way to skin a cat. Ggod one, lumdog, and timely!
Yep, and a cat has 9 lives, right? Thank you Kymm. :)
But you are a writer so in part your dreams did come true! ;)
Yeah, very true. Thanks Marie! :)
What a cool story in 33 words-loved it:-)
Thanks so much Atreyee! :)
Love the way you put the idioms together. Now you need a positive one to get a start on the next adventure.
Upward and onward? Thanks Renee! :)
Too damn funny - you managed to get more idioms than words almost.
Thanks Sam. I tried to use an idiom for every word, but couldn't guite come up with one for script writer or guitar player. I'm glad you thought this was funny. That was my plan. :)
that's an unfortunate pain in the Tampico! I so empathize. (okay, I haven't a clue where Tampico is, but...)
Thanks Jody. Tampico is in Mexico and located on the Gulf of Mexico.
