Weekend Writing Prompt — What’s In a Name?

When I first started blogging back in 2005, my big question was what I should title my blog.

I wanted something unique and catchy, and I remembered having read about Dizzy Dean, an American professional baseball pitcher. Dean was struck in the head by a thrown ball while breaking up a double play in the 1934 World Series. Afterwards, Dean told reporters, “They X-rayed my head and found nothing.”

I titled my first blog, “They Took an X-ray of My Head and Found Nothing.”

(Exactly 84 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “question.”

Also for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (x-ray)

    Why bushboy? I live in the bush. In the rest of the world that would be a forest I guess. A woman I met on the internet called me bushboy – she was a burbgirl, it never worked out. bushboy suited and I used it on a few sites. Now on WP it’s who I am – just bushboy…………..no capital please 🙂

    Great.
    After an MRI my doctor said, “The good news is you have a brain.” I looked at my wife and said, “See, I told you so.” Then my lady doc said, “I said it’s there. We can’t tell if it’s working.”
