Fearless Writing Challenge, day 26. What to write about when you don’t know what to write about

eric-rothermel-23788

I gotta tell you, this whole write a blog post everyday idea is tough.

It’s one thing to whip out a short poem every day, which, truth be told, ain’t all that easy either, but to write a post that could possibly be conceived as worth reading? Well, that’s a totally different ball of wax.

It is especially challenging during weeks like this when I am loooowwwww energy and don’t really want to dive into some of the deeper subjects I have in the queue.

This is when I turn to googling ideas — “100 blog post ideas” or “30-day blog challenge” or something like that.

Thus, it is with deep apologies to the Muse that I resort to this:

    I used to have a whole blog dedicated to these ‘surveys’ when I was in junior high, haha.

    I notice butts too lol but I don’t know about if it’s the first thing I notice. 😂 That’s amazing that you still have that drawing from Kirsten, I don’t even have any of my stuff from 5 years ago…

    I can’t believe you dressed up as a prostitute for homecoming!! And that you guys were able to vote on “most likely to become a stripper” whaaat lol, I wonder if my fellow classmates would have known to vote me as that. 😉

    Also I love your children’s names! Especially ‘Tosh’! Oh and for your favorite smells…you said ‘horse nose’? Do you mean an actual horse nose or is it something else I don’t know of? 😂

    I had fun reading your answers!! Thanks for the giggles! 💗

      I can’t believe they let us dress up like that – but it was the 80s so there’s that…;-)

      The poll was in the last edition of our newspaper – before we graduated. When we moved this latest time I found a box of old stuff from junior and high school. Pretty hilarious honestly!

        I wouldn’t imagine a horse’s nose smelling pleasant but I’ll take your word on it!! Especially since they’re also soft– I’ll write it on my bucket list to sniff and touch a horse’s nose.

I'd love to hear from you!
