I Think Nicky And Mike Look Kinda Good!
Published on Thursday, February 28, 2013 by Day 28.  The FINAL day of the Infamous We Work for Cheese Blog Writing Challenge!  For 28 days and nights we have tippity-tapped our fingers to the bone.  Read word upon word of our peers’ musings.  And typed.  And hit comment.  And typed.  And hit comment.  We have missed sleep.  Agonized over themes.  Dreamed of cheese. So I must say it.  I’m sure ...
My Name Is William.  And This Is My Story.
Published on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by Only one more day left?  Really?  REALLY?!?  For today, Nicky and Mike asked us to use the subject, "And that's why I got drunk."  Mom, don't read this one.  It's dirty. [caption id="attachment_9126" width="414"] My name is William. And this is my story.[/caption] William's Great Surprise With deepening kisses We walked through the door. In a flurry of p...
Home Town Girl in a Vegas World
Published on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 by Could it REALLY be day 26 of the 28 day blog writing extravaganza?!  Nicky and Mike challenge us with today's topic, "Deal With It." If she wasn’t even able to get the drink orders right, how in the world did they expect her to work a Black Jack table?  Taking off her apron, she grabbed her purse and began fumbling for a lipstick. “There is no time for that!...
Things Confucius Would Have Said If He Was A Mother
Published on Sunday, February 24, 2013 by He who has children will learn that glow sticks heated in the oven will explode and quickly burn the eyes of any child attempting this experiment. He who has children will discover that a piece of spaghetti can indeed be passed through the nose and pulled out of the mouth. He who has children will learn that even the front yard is an acceptable place to poop. He ...
Sea Glass Treasure
Published on Saturday, February 23, 2013 by Day 23 of the WWFC Blog Writing Challenge gives us the challenge word, "Absurd." Sea glass.  In my family, it’s like gold.  I love all colors, but BLUE sea glass?  PRICELESS. Ever since people began to use plastic, sea glass numbers have dwindled.  In Corolla, we have to look high and low for little bits of brown, white and sometimes green.  To come bac...
Booger Check!
Published on Friday, February 22, 2013 by Day 22 of the blog writing challenge brings us “compulsively.” Compulsively Check my text messages. Did I lock the door? Do I have a booger? Wear only velor. Time to wash hands. Don’t step on a crack! Can I miss ONE post?!?? Nicky, CUT ME SOME SLACK! (and Mike, but the damn thing wouldn't fit) Compulsiveness.  What do I do compulsively?  Not m...
Last Train
Published on Thursday, February 21, 2013 by Blog Writing Challenge Topic Today?  LAST TRAIN.  WOOO WOOOOOO!!!! Taking the last bite of warm apple pie, Allison made a mental note to order the best meal available every time she traveled by rail.  Noting the empty containers of tuna and crackers nearby, she congratulated herself for splurging on real food. Glancing out the window, she noticed it would s...
GROAN
Published on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by Day 19 of the WWFC blog writing challenge asks us to use the subject, "The Other Shoe."  I'm thinking Nicky just might have something to do with this one? What did one shoe say to the other shoe? Don’t look now but a heel is coming!   What did one shoe say to the other shoe? Quick!  Look cute!  Nicky is coming!   What did on...
It’s The Little Things
Published on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 by Today’s blog challenge topic is “Little Things.”  To me, those words are synonymous with “It’s the little things.”  While pondering that phrase, I began to think about my father, and how “the little things” came naturally to him.   Has it really been 16 years since my dad died? Although my father was a master at “the big things, “ he wa...
Haiku: True Peace
Published on Monday, February 18, 2013 by Could this really be day 18 of the WWFC Blog Writing Challenge?  Today we must use the phrase, “Home at Last.” I’ve told my children to cremate me when I die and sprinkle my ashes on the dunes of Corolla.  Only then will I find true peace.   Fisherman has passed. Ashes float in the ocean. Now he’s home at last.  ...
Neiman Marcus?  Whatever, Dude.
Published on Sunday, February 17, 2013 by Day Seventeen of the Blog Writing Challenge?!  REALLY?!  We are almost there!  Today's challenge theme is, "Whatever, Dude." I love me some thriftin.  The thrill of finding a pair of button fly Lucky Jeans for a few bucks…. or a 70’s martini glass…. perhaps a cookbook from earlier than that….  You just never know what you will find.  You know you are do...
Those Dark Curls
Published on Saturday, February 16, 2013 by Nicky and Mike from We Work for Cheese challenge us with today's topic, "Music." She had been in labor since yesterday.  It had been two days since she slept, and she could not remember her last meal.  Another wave of pain seared through her body.  With clenched teeth she whimpered, “Oh God.  No!  I can’t do this anymore.  Make it stop!  I … can’...
