Daily Prompt: Shape Up or Ship Out
Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out.
Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.
Dear Introverted Self:
Since your arrival in Tennessee almost four years ago, it has come to the worlds attention that you have become a home body.
We do agree that your 7 1/2 acres is a beautiful place to live.
The magnolia tree in the back is just now starting to bloom with the magnificent blossoms that smell so wonderful.
The humming birds are just returning so the feeders must be prepared for their return.
The herb flower pots are ready to start to be planted. The front of the store will soon look like a small green house.
The apple trees have just bean to bloom and their fragrance can be smelled across the yard the entire summer.
We understand that it is difficult to drive with the sciatic nerve condition in your left leg trying to use the clutch.
A slight complication of the two fractured fingers on the left hand does give you a legitimate argument of safety while driving.
You win for now. There will come a time when this dear john letter will be sent again.
There is an entire side of the city that you have never seen.
If something were to happen to your hubby I shiver to think what would happen if you could not purchase online, on base or at Walmart or Kroger.
You have a break till you heal. Oh and another break till hubby’s surgery is over.
Then it is time to explore. There is life after Dollar General. Just because that is so close does not mean that you can’t find some adventure in life.
