This is my first week-sounds like fun.
You can play too.
Choose a prompt, post it on your blog.

Note** I think I was supposed to pick one prompt-oops**

The Prompts:

1.) Write a limerick.

I once tried to write a rhyming limerick
But thinking of it made me terribly sick
So I had some Pepto
Turned into a klepto
And plagiarized one from an author named Rick

2.) Normal is...

my last name. My first name is Abby.

3.) Describe a memorable camping experience.

High School. There was no parental supervision. Nuff said.

4.) What's the best thing that has happened this week?

I received words of encouragement, help when I needed it and heard from some old friends.

5.) Did you have a childhood hideout? Where? Describe it.

We built forts. In trees. In the woods. In the dirt.
Made of wood, boxes, sheets anything we could find.
My friends, siblings, cousins, we were creative.

6.) Words that hurt me.

Corned Beef Hash,Guacamole,Seven & Seven
(typing these gives me the chills)

Just hit me instead, oh wait a minute you just did figuratively.

"They'd want you to be happy"
Only because of the fact, that due to circumstances beyond my control, this has been said to me. Quite frankly I get tired of hearing it.
I mean DUH.
I think the people that I am missing would understand if I am not chipper all of the time.

That's it for me! Can't wait to see what everyone else wrote!

I like how you took on each as a commentary rather than a story. I'll have to do that sometime when I think I can answer all the prompts.

Love the limerick. Pepto makes me clepto too...that's how I stole the jewel of the nile...or, maybe that's the one that makes me a compulsive liar.

On the last thing that makes you hurt, I used to be one of those that used to use sentences like that. It sounded good, until it hits you hard. Then, the fact of the matter is, what they would want from you is immaterial, it's only what you can offer. To be honest, what I could offer for awhile was a whole lot of nothing. Just memories. But, LOVE what you wrote here.
