My Life As A Child – Daily Prompt

The Daily Prompt asks: “Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you wish had been different about your childhood? If you have kids, is there anything you wish were different for them?”

There is so much I could say about my childhood but I don’t want this turning into a novel. I think the strangest thing about my childhood is that I don’t remember all that much about it. I do have some memories but most of them are from the time I hit ten or so. I’ve had psychiatrists tell me this may be due to trauma. It is a possibility. Most of my earliest memories are disturbing to me.

Music Soothes My Soul

Today’s daily prompt asks: What role does music play in your life?

Swearing – Ten Word Story

F*ck is a fun word. I enjoy using it liberally.

No Swearing sign

It’s so versatile and can add a bit of pop to a sentence. Honestly, I think the whole idea of there being certain words that are taboo and should remain unspoken is as absurd as the classicism that created the distinction in the first place. F*ck that, I say!

Do you like to swear or find it offensive? Are you are somewhere in between those two camps? Let me know what you think about potty mouths and taboo language in the comments section.  Can you keep it to ten words or less? I bet you can. On a side note, I decided to change up my blog theme. What do you guys think?

Computer Woes – Ten Word Story

Sorry that I haven’t been around.
My computer committed suicide. 

Blue Screen of Death.

It’s true. A few days ago I was getting ready for bed and it decided to off itself. It left me a note of sorts (the blue screen of death) and I got the message loud and clear: Time to get a new machine!

Well, if I weren’t broke and currently jobless that’s what I would have done. Instead, I am forced to work on an ancient temperamental laptop that likes to reboot itself and freeze up whenever it feels like it. So, please forgive me if I am not around as much until I get this all sorted.

Do you have a woeful (or happy) tale about your computer that you can tell in 10 words or less? If so, let me hear it! Feel free to add it to your own blog and throw up a link back to here or drop it in the comments section.
