Forsooth, t'is HNT!


This week over at Hijacked, we are each acting out a Shakespearean character. I chose Juliet. Now, as you know, Juliet takes the sleeping poison, Romeo finds her, kills himself. Juliet wakes up, sees her beloved lying there dead, then stabs herself with O happy dagger.
Imagine for a minute, shall we, that Romeo gets his fair Juliet. They are together in life, both of their dreams fullfilled. Little Romeos and little Juliets play in the courtyard. Life is good!
But waitaminit! It's been 20 years, and Juliet is getting a little tired of cleaning, cooking, and picking Romeo's dirty codpieces up off the bedroom floor and having to wash them. Besides, she's been messing around with Benvolio on the side, and needs to be rid of
ol Romeo. Let's sneak a peek, fair readers, and watch Juliet attempt to rid herself of, shall we say, excess baggage?


"No, Juliet, I am your beloved! Please! Don't make me drink the poison!"



"Hah! At last he is dead! Now, I will seal the deal with this happy dagger, just in case I've given Romeo that "die for a day then wake up" stuff instead of the real thing! At last, I am free! Benvolio! I'm coming! We shall be together at last!"

Fair Gentle Folk, I bid thee a most favorable day of Half-Naked debauchery!

weirsdo said...

Too bad your Juliet didn't meet up with Macbeth. She could give Lady Macbeth a run for her money and not go crazy and be a burden, either.

Robert van de Walle said...

LMFO!

I'd PAY to see Shakespeare skewered like this! Since I'm poor, though, I'm really glad you and Romeo share it so brilliantly.

Your crazy eyes will haunt me for the rest of the day!

Chuck said...

kt said...

Love the fractured Shakespeare. You guys are fabulous - thanks for visiting me btw. I think if'd they'd lived Romeo would've strayed well before Juliet ever got tired of him. He was a fickle little bastard that one, just ask Rosalind. HHNT!

Top cat said...

Happy HNT Susie and MR.Rathburn.

Lily said...

You two look like you had a lot of fun doing this photo shoot!

Happy Late HNT and have a lovely weekend!

Buck Daruma said...

Okay, I'll join the throng.

That is by far the most creative HNT I've seen since I started doing the thing. You are truly brilliant.

By the way, the flash fiction's good, too. Did you ever read Less Nessman? He had a site going for the longest time where he'd post a theme a day and then people would write in 100 words. It was extremely cool. He seems to have decided to stop though.

A Bronx Tale said...
