The Prompts:
1.) Somebody I'm praying for....

2.) I don't believe in prayer because...
3.) What are you putting off right now?
4.) You can go back to your childhood for one day. What day and age do you choose?
5.) Your friend tells you he can pick up any girl at the bar, no matter what he says. You bet him $100 he can't. Create the world's worst pick up line and send your friend off into the crowd. What happens?

Let's get the easy part out of the way first first. I didn't choose number 5 because I could not think of anything appropriate for this family friendly blog. I may be a mom yet,I am a woman. I have been hit on. With the worst kind of lines. So of course I have made up comeback lines and discussed them with my friends. We are adults, we have a sense of humor. We watch the F/X channel.'Nuff said.

Now onto to why I chose #3. That is to avoid questions 1, 2 and 4. I just could not go there not as far as posting was concerned. Oh I went there. In my head and my heart. The undercurrent of melancholy flows through my veins. Until soon I am overwhelmed by a tidal wave of tears.

My favorite childhood memory and all about prayer is written in my life, my head and ready to be said and maybe read on my blog. I just put it off. Put it in "Lissa's Lockbox" because:

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
Kahlil Gibran

I like how answer question 3 by indicating those answers that you put off writing about and why. Very clever.

Yeah I agree with Cajoh on this one...very sneaky of you. And I encourage you to write whatever those thoughts and tears are about...there's nothing like reading honesty in all it's rawness! :)
