shells

the shells still remind me of the last really great summer I ever had. It was a challenging time, but I rose to the occasion. It would be another 20 years before I would have to slay that dragon again. Ahhh….youth!

fools

The fools sent me the entry. It wasn’t my fault that I won the grand prize. Now the question is, how does one maintain an elephant? I am sure my apartment is not going to be large enough to house this beautiful creature. Well, there is always the complex office? Hmmmmm

undetected

I have been able to maneuver this world undetected thus far. Though I know some day, the jig will be up, I continue to walk among the living with a smile and a gait that disguises my true self. One day I will have to tell them all, who I am.

alarming

It was alarming somewhat. I did it again. Me and my big mouth. When I’m in the moment, I just want everyone to feel loved, better and a part of the family, but after the moment passes, and I’ve signed on for something that I may regret later, I feel like I did something that I won’t be able to absolutely follow through with. Sheesh!

montage

The montage was going to be a tribute to my female family members who had gotten me started on the show from the beginning. Things didn’t work out as I had planned. The website was not as easy to manipulate as I had first thought. Then the pictures wouldn’t crop the way I wanted. Then I worried about manipulating others images on the internet. The worry never ends.

beer

I love beer. I may love beer a little too much lately. My pants don’t feel like they used to, and I cannot look in the mirror without thinking about having that last beer that I shouldn’t have had. Crap. I am not good at this today.

ensue

The onslaught will ensue next week on Tuesday! I am not ready to see the results of my 16 weeks of labor. Some will make me proud, while others will make me want to tear my hair out! It is always the same every year. Feelings of guilt, relief, and general gassiness ensue with the close of each new year.

bagel

The bagel was not as good as it looked in the picture. I wonder if I can sue for false advertising? I should look into this cause I spent my last five dollars on that bagel and a shmear! Damn shame. Public Enemy was right–don’t believe the hype!

fabricated

I fabricated parts of my story to make my adventure seem more adventurous than it actually was. In reality, I was just as alone as I am when I am home. Sometimes traveling isn’t all that we crack it up to be in our minds. My trips are never as redemptive as I would like them to be, but that does not stop me from trying on the next trip.

plague

It came over me like a plague! I missed my time. How could I have been so stupid. I checked the book several times, but I guess I was over anxious and forgot how to read. I am disappointed. There’s always next year I guess. Even though this year was to be “my year”. Does this mean I missed my calling? Or am I destined to always be a day late and a dollar short. Story of many life.

truth

The truth is so very hard to tell, especially when what you believe to be the truth is being told to you with bits and pieces from other people’s experiences. Just because you didn’t live it, does that make it any less the truth. Validity, integrity, and purpose are costly.

withered

I withered in his presence. It had been two years since I saw him, but he still had that affect on me. I still loved him. I made out with him, and at the same time, I wanted to kill him. It had been over for more than two years, but I still melted when I saw him. Was this the gift he was trying to offer me, a brief dalliance in a shopping mall parking lot?

leathery

It felt great. The bike was running smoothly. The helmet felt snug, and protective at the same time. The jacket…well what can I say? it felt leathery like it was supposed to. The day was perfect. All systems were go. Now if I can just figure out how to make a turn I would be set!

willed

I thought I could will it into being, but the inspiration I was seeking had already been willed to someone else. Everything is possible, but nothing is happening.

flat

I fell flat on my face. I knew this was going to happen. People are always telling me to slow down, but I just can’t seem to remember that advice at the right time. At any rate, the cake made it. Now for the knife in my side! How the hell am I supposed to remove it without taking an organ with it? Sheesh.

baby

Babies are beautiful. Usually. Sometimes they are not as beautiful as they might appear. He smiled at me and I laughed. Poor child. It isn’t everyday that one sees a child that looks exactly like Burl Ives!

cool

cool. It is one of the whole reasons that I am pursuing a new hobby that is quite dangerous. Although many people are supporting me in my new endeavor, I am still apprehensive about my ability, money, and the image of someone who rides. I am completely confident in the fact that I will look cool, but what happens when I get myself into a situation that even I am not cool enough to get myself out of?

responsibility

The responsibility is all mine. Normally, knowing that I have to take hold of a situation doesn’t scare me, but this time, I have to admit that I am not sure if I can pull this one off. One thing is half settled;another is not even started. This could go either way. I could end up looking like a star, or I could end up looking like the fool that I feel like I am on the inside.

musical

The musical was as uninteresting as I had originally believed. The dancing monkeys were a blast. Even when the smallest one fell out of step, the other monkeys kept rockin’ on. I felt for the little monkey. Everyone isn’t able to keep time, sing, and play the harmonica at the same time. We should all be so talented!

speech

My speech was changing. I had been working very hard on not using bad language, alas I have given up. Some things just must be iterated with coarse or profane language. Nothing gets the job done faster than saying: get your asses to work you lazy sons of bitches! Nice!

use

The need is incredible once you forget to attach your crutch. The day began as normal as any other. Little did I know that only minutes after leaving the house that I would fall prey to my demons and use again. It was the beginning of the end.

learn

They seemed to understand what I was describing, but that “deer in the headlight” look in their eyes spoke volumes. How on earth can you get someone to learn something that don’t understand. Hell, for some of them, just getting to class on time and in one piece was lesson enough!

comfort

I do not feel the same level of. Omfort that I felt two or three days ago. The hour is upon us. Come Monday, school will begin and all of the wonder and surprise of summer will be over. I am happy and sad at the same time. I hope the joy I found this summer lasts through the rest of the year! It is hard to keep those good vibrations going. Ahh. Summer.

methods

The methods I have used to keep my brother out of my home have failed miserably. Sometimes family just.sucks. Other times, family rocks. I am not sure which time it is now.

bucket

The bucket sat curiously on the edge of the sidewalk. It had been there for at least an hour, as I didn’t notice it when I left the house earlier. When I approached, the bucket began to shake. The sounds coming from the inside were small gurgles.

calling

The computer was kept calling. I did all I could to ignore it for two days straight. At the last minute, I checked my email. As usual, the whining and begging was of epic proportions. Why do people wait til the last minute to make a plea for a better score. No amount of begging will save you now. It’s done, and I’m done, for that matter!

base

I hit the base, but nothing happened. I read the directions, had all of my ingredients in the tub, but nothing was happening. I don’t understand. It is not rocket science. When I finally realized that it wasn’t plugged in, I felt that all of my education was for naught! How can someone so accomplished be so simple?

shorthand

The shorthand message was on the wall: “Stay out of the office”. I knew this was the best course of action, but against my better judgement… I got sucked in. Now I am worried about my participation in the office gossip, banter, and general talk amongst colleagues. Tomorrow is another day, and I will live to “keep my ideas to myself” another day.

charms

His charms were irresistible. I was at a loss for words, something that does not happen often. I dove in head first. I was smitten with the easy smile, the skin, and the beautiful hair. Little did I know that his charms masked a serious case of low self-esteem.

temper

My temper has gotten so much better lately. I only had two small incidents this week. In one, I settled it with my words much faster than in the past. In the other, well…let’s just say the cell wasn’t as bad or stinky as the last one. I really wish they would get better lunches for inmates!
