Exploding Head Reverse Haiku
Published on Friday, February 28, 2014 by IS IT REALLY THE FINAL DAY OF THE WWFC WRITING CHALLENGE?  MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE!  And speaking of, today's subject is, "And Then My Head Exploded!" “And Then My Head Exploded” Part 1 Reverse Haiku: I turned on the radio. Justin Bieber played. And then my head exploded. *You may substitute Justin Bieber for Nicki Minaj, Sheryl Crow, or Bob Dylan.  I...
Ummm…. Kitty?
Published on Thursday, February 27, 2014 by Day 27 of the WWFC writing challenge gives us the prompt, “How did you find out?” Considering I probably beat MikeWJ in the LENGTHY POST AWARD yesterday, I’ll make this one brief.  I will also be able to read the posts from yesterday... I wasn't able to get to anyone.  College financial aid forms. Blech. The first thing that came to mind when I read, “how ...
The Entire Motley Crew
Published on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by Day 26 of the WWFC writing challenge gives us the subject, “Naked and Lost.” Ok everyone, this post comes with a disclaimer.  First of all, it is the longest post I have EVER written.  Be sure you have a little time if you stay.  Secondly, I forget EVERYTHING.  I mean EVERYTHING.  I almost didn’t do this, so afraid I would forget someone who has particip...
The Dreaded Social Media
Published on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 by Although I have a Twitter account, I don’t consider it very important.  I created it when I had multiple websites and used it as a marketing tool.  Today, when I look through all those I follow I see nothing but advertisements. Is it me, or did there used to be more “real person” tweets than advertising tweets?  When I scroll down the main page I see ad upon...
It Started With An Upset Stomach
Published on Monday, February 24, 2014 by It started Saturday after lunch.  My stomach began to hurt a bit.  By dinner time my stomach was burning and I had no appetite.  I chalked it up to gastroparesis.  Until I woke at 1 in the morning with my stomach churning. It came in waves for 24 hours.  The pain in my joints was unbearable.  All I could do was kick my legs around, tearing the sheets off the ...
There are Things
Published on Sunday, February 23, 2014 by Day 23 of the WWFC writing challenge asks us to use the subject, “There are things.”  This took me less than two minutes to write.  It is funny how the heart can speak so clearly through written words when it hides all other times.   There Are Things There are things I dream about. Things I want to do. Things I want to be. But I worry of disapprov...
Marzipan and Roses
Published on Saturday, February 22, 2014 by Day 22 of the WWFC writing challenge brings us, "It's Only a Dream." It’s only a dream.  But it must be one of those dreams where you can change things.  What are they called?  Lucid dreams?  Because knew she was dreaming and was making her way by choice.   But it’s only a dream… isn’t it? There was ice on everything.  The branches.  The grass. ...
I Made That?
Published on Friday, February 21, 2014 by Day 21 of the WWFC writing challenge brings us the subject, "Yes, I made that." My children.  How many times have I looked up and seen the inconceivable? “I hate reading!”  “He took my Pokemon card and won’t give it back!”  “Mom we were TRADING cards!”  “But you didn’t say Black Black No Trade Back!”  “I get to ride in the front!”  ...
And Her Name Was…
Published on Thursday, February 20, 2014 by She hid in the shadows, waiting to strike. She kept my life calm, until she yelled, “Psych!” Out came the babies and life took a turn. She laughed knowing I had no money to burn. Viruses, barfing and spreading disease, Boogers and farting between asthma wheeze. My house?  Oh so dusty… My wardrobe?  A loss. She’s made my life cra...
People Food, Right?
Published on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 by You may recall my post about cooking up a batch of chicken feet.  The snipping of the claws.  The volcano of oil.  The first bite.  Tastes like chicken! Imagine my surprise this weekend at coming across the very thing I cooked and ate two months before.  However, I wasn't in a fancy Asian restaurant.  I was at the pet store... and the chicken feet were in a dog...
Liars
Published on Tuesday, February 18, 2014 by Day 18 of the WWFC writing challenge gives us the subject, “Liars.” There are liars everywhere.  And I have proof. A thoracic epidural is not a big deal. Don’t worry about the accident paperwork.  You are done.  We will take care of everything for you. I’m proud of you. If you work hard you will see results. I will always have your back. Fish...
Bless Me Father, For I Have Sinned
Published on Monday, February 17, 2014 by Day 17 of the writing challenge brings us the subject, “I faked it.” Bless me Father, for I have sinned.  It has been two weeks since my last confession. Go on, my child. Well, last week I put my trash in my neighbor’s bin.  That way I didn’t have to roll out my can on Tuesday.  My neighbors didn’t have room for their own, but they don’t recycle, s...
