No Words Wednesday

CEF6B46C-D06C-435D-B3C1-C84A772FADAE.jpegThis picture is part of a challenge called “No Words Wednesday” from Sazz.

The idea of this challenge is to post a picture of a famous monument of your city, preferably unedited and original in nature, without any caption or words, in order to let the picture speak on its own and so readers can imagine their own interesting story of that picture.

(I think I’m not even supposed to say what the picture is of or in what city it was taken. Any guesses? And is this too many words?)

Well I Have Never…Or Have I?

f67b4f1c-f210-48f5-93b0-f20fe5dc1e73Rory saw something on “The Ellen Show” and he decided to have a go with it on his blog. It begins with a simple statement that starts “Never have I ever….” The participants in the game respond with either “I Have” or “I Have Never.”

So Rory has posed a series of “Never have I ever” statements and has asked us to simply post one of those two responses, as applicable.

Here goes:

Never have I ever taken a sexy selfie.

I have. But, no, I am not going to share it with you.

Never have I ever kissed a celebrity.

I have never.

Never have I ever been kicked out of a bar.

I have. The Devonshire Bar & Grill.

Never have I ever been asked to leave a church.

I have. Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. Not this past Christmas Eve. It was way, way back when I was in high school.

Never have I ever ridden a motorbike.

I have. I have owned and ridden three different motorcycles through the years. Do they count as “motorbikes”?

Never have I ever have a l farted in public.

I have. Both accidentally and intentionally.

Never have I ever have l lied to get a job.

I have never.

Never have I ever been nude skiing.

I refuse to answer this questions on the grounds that it’s self-incriminating.

Never have I ever eaten a fried witchitty grub.

I have never. At least not to the best of my knowledge, since I have no idea what a fried witchitty grub is.

Never have I ever peed in the shower.

I have. Every time I take a shower.

A Photo a Week Challenge — Eyes

I just came across this weekly photo challenge from blogger Nancy Merrill and this week’s challenge (or maybe it was last week’s challenge, but I just found it) is “eyes.”

The idea is to create a post for the challenge based upon the topic provided each week, in this case, eyes, and to share a picture or two of some of the eyes in our lives.

So here are the eyes of our beloved dog and our equally beloved cat.C899A937-C292-4BDB-A04E-D56EFF93B4C59D4DA16A-24F9-449B-A991-DD4D284CA374

Linear Thinking

“Listen,” Aaron said, “I’ve given this whole curriculum a lot of thought. As they say, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. My plan is to graduate in three years instead of four and to do that I need to take all of my classes in a very deliberate, sequential manner. I’m simply applying the concept of linear thinking to my decision.”

“But college is not only about going to classes and academic achievement,” the guidance counselor said. “Don’t you want to participate in any extracurricular activities? And what about a social life?”

“I have neither the time nor the interest in wasting my time with trash talk,” Aaron said. “It’s my conviction that my focus has to be on academics and my goal of graduating in three years.”

The guidance counselor sighed. “Well, Aaron,” she said, “I can tell that you process a great intelligence, but I fear that you’re demonstrating a serious lack of wisdom.”


Written for these one-word prompts: Ragtag Daily Prompt (recommend), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (carry), Scotts Daily Prompt (linear), Weekly Prompts (trash talk), and Word of the Day (conviction). I also snuck in a not so provocative response for my Fandango’s Provocative Question Prompt (intelligence or wisdom).
