Riveting Ramblings – Listen, Matilda: Part 1

Yes I love a good bit of alliteration, that’s no secret. Riveting Ramblings is my new feature where I share some of my witty words, wretched writings, stumbling stories and baffling babble.

I hope some of them bring you something a little bit different, a break from the ordinary and expected.

Hey you! Yes, you!

A 9-5 desk job not fulfilling you? 

You know there’s more to life than meets the eye? 

The idea of the absurd, supernatural and mysterious excites you?

You want to make money and travel at the same time?

If your answer is yes to these questions call this number now for an interview. 

It was absurd. It was clearly a scam of some sort. Hanging on that lamppost where she stops everyday for a fag before heading home. Hanging there all smug and gloating; here’s your dream job! Only idiots need apply!

Matilda definitely should not call that number, she knows that.

But at the same time…

Absurd things always called to her. She needs to get as far away as possible from where she is as soon as she possibly can. She needs the money.

Whats that old phrase?

No reward without risk? No miracles without faith?

Yeah okay Matilda, you’re justifying a clearly bad decision on half remembered advice from your facebook feed.

Fuck it.

Matilda calls the number. Her whole life is about to change.


As usual with writing, I always appreciate feedback. Let me know what you want to see more of / less of and I’m open to requests and prompts!
