Sunday 160 - Confined

Awakened in the dark of night -
sweating,
fearful,
heart pounding -
he felt paralyzed.
Alone.
Arms and legs bound.
He hated the confinement of a down mummy bag.

lol - yep - can feel uneasy - but lying in a cool tent, wrapped in a warm down mummy bag can also be a very nice, comforting feeling...

My 160 is up -- although I must concede that being trapped in a warm cocoon downy sleeping bag is a whole lot better then my small attempt .

Personally, I always liked that cocooned feeling. Eek! I'm weird.

My effort is here. Thanks.

sheri said...

hey, monkey man...now here's a great 160!! i have to agree with the majority...it's tough trying to get out of when you realize you shouldn't have had that last cup of coffee!
you can find my offering right here:) have a good one!

PattiKen said...

Very descriptive 160, MM. That's a feeling I know too well. It was the basis of many a childhood nightmare.

My 160 is up up.

Felicitas said...

LOL! Very funny MM.

I'm up too. This time, I combined your meme with Magpie Tales.

My heart was crying for the plaintive wails and then.... the punch line. I am so flipping gullible!

I wrote my 160:

i too am claustrophobic, no mummy bags..comforter below my chin, if i ever need an MRI they might as well just let me die already. Funny twist to the story. Mine is up. (sorry, I can't figure out how to do that "linking" thing).

Alice Audrey said...

When I was a kid I hated mummy bags, but I've since found they really are warmer, and sometimes that matters.

My 160 is here.

rudy said...

Shivers - don't like those mummy bags at all... Great 160!

Tabor said...

Yikes, that sounds too scary. I don't like the feeling of confinement.

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Another reason why I don't go camping! Good one!

Hope you and yours are happy and well. Thanks for your support last week.

:)

Gabriella Moonlight said...

I love camping and now sadly will be calling my sleeping bag the mummy bag although I think that beats the zombie bag :-) Great piece.

Betsy said...

Ack! I immediately felt claustrophobic! But I guess that was your intent! ha!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Nothing like a mummy bag on a summer night in the wilds, or a cold room.

This is my first try with the 160 character challenge. It's fun. Might even try it again.
:-)
Su-sieee! Mac
This and That. Here and There. Now, Sometimes Then.

I hate my feet not to be free...I am a restless sleeper. Great description. I finally made it here tonite! Happy Sunday!

she said...

I like being tucked in tight. My 160 is up at http://shewriting.blogspot.com/2010/08/welcome-home.html

Better late than never I hope.

Pete Marshall said...

the walking man said...

some one should let him know it is the wrong time of year for a full down mummy bag.

Leeuna said...

Great 160 post. I can't sleep unless one of my feet are on top of the covers, so no mummy bags for me...unless I could cut a hole in it.

Jingle said...

Thank U for the kind words in Joanny's blog regarding her 160 about me,
I appreciate your openness in embrace of me, I am not perfect, am simply one of you...
God Bless!
Happy Monday!

Helen said...

You have painted quite the vivid picture here ..... I'm wiggling just reading it!

Marla said...

Can you say claustrophobia!!
