Urban Decay - a condition where parts of a city or town become rundown and ruined, usually as a result of weevils moving into the neighborhood.

Umbrella Joust: A derivative of the classic golden age arcade game, Joust. Bye-bye pixelated images of an ostrich ridden by a knight. Replaced with modern graphics, this slice of life drama features a teen who wields an umbrella, charging parents headlong in a jousting championship. Those pesky ostriches aren't totally gone though as they hide and pop out when least expected. So if you move to Ireland, not only do you need to watch out for falling rain, but keep your eyes open for falling eggs from unemployed knights with their ostrich steeds!

Glad you liked it! Giving recognition to writers such as yourself is important to me. Your willingness to go out and comment on pieces other people have written caught my attention and drew me in to check out your work. And I'm glad I did as I enjoyed your writing style. :) This is my way of thanking you for not only being a writer, but supporting other writers with positive comments about their controversial pieces and for being an active participant in the community. :)
