Day 14 – Worst Punishment
Ignore me. That is worse than screaming at me or hitting me. Seriously. She’s not armless, by the way. Her arms are crossed in front of her, you just can’t see them.
Day 15 – Favorite Fish
Finding Nemo was such a great movie! So many quotable lines, especially by my favorite character, Dory. How could I not love a fish that can read?
“Hey there, Mr Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming…”
Day 16 – A Major Accident/Pain in your life
Um…yeah…I wasn’t up to doing this one this week.
Day 17 – First Crush
I never went through the “boys are gross” stage, and I’ve had about a hundred crushes, but my first was Michael Hurda. He was the boy next door. Okay, more like a block away. I could see his house from our porch. He had dark brown hair and a big cheesy grin. We walked to our elementary school together all through first and second grade, and logged hundreds of miles circling the neighborhood on our bikes. He never treated me like a girl when we were kicking a ball around or playing tag, so of course I loved him. On a field trip to our teacher’s farm in first grade, he told my mom he loved me and was going to marry me someday. Then we moved away the next year and I didn’t see him again until a chance meeting in high school. He had moved to another city but was visiting our hometown and we ran into each other. We reconnected for a bit as friends, but lost touch again. Not to sound all stalkerish, but I know where he is. I found him on Facebook, but didn’t friend request him. I also found the biggest crush of my childhood, and we ARE friends on Facebook, but that’s not today’s challenge.
Day 18 – Outer Space
“Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”
I can not hear the word “space” without the rest of the phrase running through my mind or slipping out of my mouth. Yes, I am a geek, and proud of it. In college, my best friend Kevin and I met weekly with several of our other geeky friends to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation in the parlor of McCloud Hall. I experience a brief wave of nostalgia, smell popcorn, and think of Kevin every time I watch an episode on Netflix. Yes, all seven seasons are available on instant watch. You’re welcome!
Day 19 – Favorite Holiday
July 29th. The best day of the year, and my very favorite holiday. My birthday.
