IRRATIONAL FEARS

jennysidebar_button_SAT-2[1]

I hope my poem last week wasn’t the cause of Jenny giving us an even more difficult assignment this week.  15 words!  I don’t like challenges that much Jenny. 

Manchester Road Race

IRRATIONAL FEARS EXCUSES

(prompt appears in bold print)

Before I die I want to in a marathon run,

But I fear being killed by the starting gun!

Thank you for visiting my blog, and thank you for hosting Jenny.  I’m not going to thank you for challenging me though!  To see what others have to say about “Before I die”, go to Jenny Matlock Off on My Tangent.  Laurie

I liked this but Jenny will tell you off. You have to use it as she gives it.

OK, I had split the prompt, but I changed it, because I didn't want Jenny to tell me off. laurie

Oh I liked this, and really I don't think Miss Jenny would tell anyone off, but who wants to really find out right!!!!

Nice! Jenny might send an email reminding you of the rules of this silliness but she'd never toss it out in public. Besides, back when this all started, folks didn't always read the simple rules. Some commenter always pointed out any mistakes publicly.

Great poem. That's a worthy reason to forgo a marathon. I hope you don't mind if I borrow it (with credit to you, of course).
Cheers.

The back and forth in the comments is as entertaining as your Centus!

Love the fun of this - made me chuckle, then snicker, and now I'm laughing my caboose off! Thanks for the very good use of this mini-prompt!

hahahahahahahahaaa.... gasp ... haha. What can I say ... that was great!!!!

Jenny said...

I loved this! This totally made me laugh!

And trust me, your link last week was just perfect, too.

It takes a lot to make me mad.

It takes very little, though, for me to go off on a new prompt direction!

I love seeing your writing confidence grow. Go get 'em, girl! You've got the talent!
