Choose Your Own Adventure

Look, folks. I’m taking a few days off. I have work to do and a husband gone with the “army” (like I really believe that old scheme!) for the weekend. Plus it’s Mothers Day for pete’s sake (should that be capitalized?). So I’m going to make like a mother and piss some people off.

Wait a minute, something isn’t right there.

Oh well, nevermind.

Here is a prompt. It’s better than nothing. Or is it?

    • I’m honored that you would say that; I have been reading your posts lately and I’m damned impressed with your experiments and such. Plus you’ve totally schooled me in Alantru’s comment threads. I’m humbled by your presence. 😉

  3. Thanks BKT! I’m so glad you like my experiments. 🙂

    And as for the comment threads, trust me, you hold your own. That’s how I found you, actually. I follow wherever the wit leads me.

    Now I just have to figure a way to stop commenting all the time and start focusing on the real writing. Ugh…so hard.
