A slice of a bonus action

Slice of LIfe
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers Thanks for stopping by!

I’m listening to David Sedaris on my trips from school to school.

He is such an honest writer.
Brave.

In D&D a month or so ago, our Dungeon Master said
“Talk is a bonus action.”

I mean, he also said “Roll for your crocodile.” But focus, please:
“Talk is a bonus action.”

I think maybe writing is too.

So I’m writing in little spaces
Bravely, I hope.

I don’t have any D&D dice to roll in my regular life
which is all for the best since I still ask
“A D20?” after a year of playing

So instead of rolling for insight or perception
I’m writing
sometimes in secret
little spaces

One day I’ll share
even though
Talk is a bonus action.

  1. Talk is a bonus action. THIS one, like the 20-sided die, I’ll have to roll around in my head for a little while. Thank you for creating this moment in time and space. =))

  2. I absolutely loved this.

    My favourite part?

    “I mean, he also said “Roll for your crocodile.” But focus, please:
    “Talk is a bonus action.” ”

    Thank you so much for sharing this.
