“Retell the most recent joke you’ve heard as a short piece of fiction.”  Gotta go with an old classic.  This is one of my all-time favorites.  I know, I’m a simple creature who’s easy to amuse. Man walks into a bar and says, “Ouch!” It was crowded for a Tuesday night.  I had been there […]

642 Things to Write About Challenge: Week 47

Even though I started this on Sunday night, here we are on Wednesday morning night and my lazy ass hasn’t finished this post yet.  I think this is the latest I’ve ever been with a weekly challenge post.  I’m kinda disappointed in myself, to be honest.  🙁 “Thoughts on your favorite pet’s personality.” We called her […]

“What’s the most expensive thing you own?  What was it like to buy it?” Well, I think that this is the perfect time for me to tell the story of how we bought our house.  I just told it on the most recent episode of MetroBuzz, but I don’t presume that everyone who reads this […]

642 Things to Write About Challenge: Week 43

In honor of my cousin’s engagement this past weekend. “At a romantic restaurant on a busy Saturday night, a guy gets down on one knee and begins to propose.  You are a sportscaster doing a color commentary of the occasion for a live television audience.”  “Alright, ladies and gentlemen!  Boy-oh-boy, do we have a great […]
