Today begins the CHEERS, CAVANAUGH Blogfest hosted by Mark Koopman, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King, and Stephen Tremp to honor a man who gives his heart and soul to the blogging community. Our mission is to answer four questions about Alex, and then to write a flash fiction story using five given prompts. Thanks to all of the hosts, and be sure to visit the rest of Alex’s devoted fans.
What does Alex look like?
I’m picturing tall, athletic build, killer smile, wavy brown hair, chiseled jaw, and a twinkle in his eye.
Who would play Alex in a documentary?
He once told me that he resembled Ryan Reynolds.
Who does Alex remind you of?
He’s a combination of James Bond, Eric Clapton, Gene Roddenberry, and Dr. Phil.
All In A Day's Work
Cavanaugh is fighting an evil pilot aboard a Cosbolt spacecraft in another galaxy. Shadows of Alex dance as he pulverizes his enemy in slow motion, while the beautiful captive looks on.
When they return to Earth, she lures him into a tub filled with Hot Tamales. Afterward, the Ninja confides while strumming his guitar, “This was written by a member of the IWSG. It’s a little group that I founded to help settle writer's nerves before they spontaneously combust."
Suddenly, she throws the guitar against the wall. “Why won’t you let me see your face, and why can't we go anywhere without your co-hosts?"
“Because then you would also see all the people I’ve helped, all the stories I’ve read, and all of the suffering I’ve eased. And you didn't seem to mind when my co-hosts were scrubbing the bathtub ring Mrs. Cavanaugh."Thanks to Mrs. Cavanaugh for raising such a giving son, and a special thanks to Mrs. Alex J. Cavanaugh for being so giving of her husband’s time and energy.
