Daily Prompt: A-Z “Friends”

Daily Prompt: A to Z – Create a short story, piece of memoir, or epic poem that is 26 sentences long, in which the first sentence begins with “A” and each sentence thereafter begins with the next letter of the alphabet.

You see… I don’t have the time to create an A-Z poem or love story or children’s book. However, I do have the time to scour the TBS website for some quotes from the show Friends. I couldn’t get four letters though! Help! Yes, I am a nerd when it comes to this show.

Daily Prompt: Fly on Teenage Mama Spaghetti’s Wall

If you could be a “fly on the wall” anywhere and at any time in history, where and when would you choose?

Imagine me, as a fly, just buzzing around the living room of a 16-year-old Mama Spaghetti.

She strolls into the living room. She is a short, scrawny girl with pink/black hair, bracelets up to her elbows, and baggy pants that are falling off her behind because she thinks it looks awesome!!

She eyeballs the treadmill standing in the corner. What brings her to this treadmill? Is it to lose weight? Not so much. Is it to work up a gross sweat? Nah … she lived in Florida so just stepping outside would do the trick. Was she bored? Ah yes, she must have been bored.

So 16-year-old Mama Spaghetti decides to step her silly behind onto the treadmill. She then proceeds to hit the “on” button. Then she hits the SUPER FAST button and … WHAM !!!! That girl goes flying into the wall!

Yep … if I were to be a fly on the wall I would witness myself being dumb.


Daily Prompt: A Chorus Line?

Daily Prompt: Singular Sensation

If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?
Please, please, please someone ANYONE tell me that I am not the only one who had the song One (Finale) from A Chorus Line pop into their head when they saw this mornings daily prompt?? 
Instead of actually writing and answering the question, I am going to share the video of these foofy haired, goldly outfitted people joyously kicking their legs about. That way this song can be stuck in everyone elses head for the remainder of the day. As it is now stuck in mine.


Daily Prompt: Ringing Green

Tell us a joke!

I stole the following joke from Stelline. When she told it to me and Ziti a few years ago we thought it was the cutest thing ever. I don’t know if she made it up or if she heard it from someone else.

Stelline: Can you up with a sentence that only uses the words green and yellow?

Us: Hmmm… no.

Stelline: Green Green Green Green … Yellow?

Green is supposed to be the sound of a phone ringing … as in, Ring Ring Ring Ring. Yellow is supposed be someone saying “Hello” when they pick up the phone.

Ha!!! It seriously was so funny when that child told us this joke. I thought it was so clever!


Daily Prompt: The Dreaded Olive

Tell us about a thing you’ll never write about.

I will never, ever in 800 billion years write about olives.

ol·ive noun 1. an evergreen tree, Olea europaea, of Mediterranean and other warm regions, cultivated chiefly for its fruit. 

It sounds lovely, right? WRONG!

They are gross. They scare me. They remind me of eyeballs.

There is an olive bar at my local grocery store. It is my worst nightmare! I fear those olives will roll out of that bar and jump on me. Just the smell of them sends chills down my spine.

I will never understand the whole olives on your fingers trick. Why?!! Why would to do that to yourself?! It’s not cute. It’s not funny. It’s truly horrifying!

Olives, stay on the tree where you belong!

Well would you look at that … I just wrote about olives.


This is just not right. Adorable penguins should never, ever be forced to wear olives!!
