Fiction/Memoir: I’ve Semi-Joined “Write on the Edge”

August 25, 2011 1 comment

My sister has had a blog for a long while now. She used to only blog about things she thought about or that happened to her/people she knew, but some time ago, she started to include fiction/memoir writing by following prompts on Red Writing Hood, now named Write on the Edge.

I have thought about joining her for a while, and now that they have posted their easiest prompt EVER, I will do so.

I love diner food. Specifically, I like eggs and turkey bacon and toast and someone else cleaning up the mess.  Now I’m not saying that I go to my local diner with any regularity, but the folks at my diner decided to teach me Greek (I live in Astoria, which is a pretty Greek area).  So far, I can say, “The food is very good, thank you for asking.”

Well, not quite.  Actually I can say the following things, sometimes even linked together:

  • hi/bye
  • How are you?
  • good
  • I am tired
  • thank you
  • you’re welcome
  • good night
  • one
  • two
  • three
  • very
  • little
  • I am learning Greek

I Like Poker. Blackjack? Not So Much.

It is statistically impossible* to do as consistently poorly at blackjack as I do and yet it still happens. I have NEVER come out ahead. Now I just treat it like it’s a bacon cheeseburger and stay away.


*and by impossible I mean, of course, highly improbable
