The Hole Inside


Cavity via The Daily prompt Rotten tooth , rotten tooth Such a pain to me The man in white within my sight Wields a drill it’s plain to see With gleaming eyes and a toothless smile He begins to work on me The laughing gas hit me fast I stammer but can’t even speak He…

Duped by Myself Again


Starting a blog was supposed to be therapeutic for me . I’m not going to lie, it hasn’t been . It was supposed to be a way for me to express myself with a mindful audience and to make a connection with others who can relate . It was supposed to replace social media and…

Stifle


Stifle via The Daily Prompt Never one to be silent, I laughed out loud . In not trying to laugh, I made a embarrassing moment even worse . When people turned around, I covered my mouth and pretended I was coughing instead. All choked up . Funerals aren’t supposed to be sad . They are meant…

Home -Brew Brouhaha


Today instead of being the unenthusiastic, apathetic helper of the brewmaster (my husband), I am the boss of the beer. Meaning I am doing my best to be a good steward of this secret and revered beer society . It’s hard for me to focus on this project. There’s a lot of sitting around waiting…

THE CENTER FOR LITERACY IN TEXAS: PSA


Do you know how to spell? Are you from Texas? Then grab a Lone Star , your spit cup and covered wagon and join me for the first annual “Texans can spell “campaign . Again for the foreigners ( anyone who is not Texan ), I’ll texanize this so ya’ll get it. I’m sorry I…

Calling All Kinfolk


I was lamenting my lack of suitably hilarious and interesting matters to bore you with when my mom dropped a bit of lmfao my way . I know everyone has that family member who struggles with social media and we all let them . Don’t lie. I now have one too but he’s funnier than…

The Last Bell


Tardy Via the Daily Prompt She ran her fingers through her hair impatiently and cursed the foggy mirror . “This had better be good , ” she mumbled to herself. Running the two red lights and brake checking it’s fifty residents before pulling into an empty space, her mood was dark like the ugly sky.…

Today at Walmart


I learn the most interesting things at Wal-Mart. I guess I’m not very good at stopping the “too much information ”  train-wreck . I don’t want to seem rude when they obviously want to share something with me . Today I learned the allergies of my checker. Now I know that a Hawaiian ginger , vanilla…

Conversation


Conversations I’m going to have a conversation today . I’m going to start a conversation today . I’m going to be in a conversation today . This was her goal and she was so embarrassed to say it but the thought of talking to people made her sick. I do not hate people. I am…

Ode to January 1st

Almost


Almost via the daily prompt “Almost there”, she repeated like a mantra. Almost , almost , almost . Too scared to go back and too nervous to do anything but drive fast , with eyes fixed straight ahead on the empty road . The howling wind still screamed outside but she couldn’t hear it .…

Finally


Finally Finally, at the finish line, I stumbled and fell. I felt the whole world spin and then cursed myself for not being more descriptive in the telling. What followed was neither unexpected, amazing or even more than mundane. No angels, devils, long departed loved ones came to greet me. I was finally at the…
