This is silly, but during my morning routine of checking my Yahoo horoscope and eating my cereal (hey, no judging. I know most of you eat your cereal to the tune of Sponge Bob Square paints!)
I saw the usual annoying ads flash on the pages-the same ones that we ADHD sufferers are drawn to like pirates to a treasure map. Right above the words forewarning me to abandon my usual propensity for routine because no matter how hard I tried it was just not expected to go as planned, I spotted one that really grabbed my attention. I’ve seen the ad before, but for some reason, today it just really struck me as funny and, well, sort of incredible. Not so much the invention of said item being advertised, but the timing of it in light of our ever-increasing, world-advancing, growth and domination over vast and untamed galaxies. I won’t tell you what the ad was for right this second. Let me first elaborate on the history of some of the technology that incredible men and women have labored over in order to make our world the captivating civilization it is today. Continue reading

To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable
No one in Scotland can escape from the past.
It is everywhere, haunting like a ghost.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild,

The world’s more full of weeping than you can understand!
-William B. Yeats

Until next time!
Prompt (WD)“I wasn’t planning on this. Falling in love with you was the last thing I wanted; because I know our time would have to come to an end. Yet, here I am, begging you not to turn the page.” He said. Who is the speaker and who is the speaker talking to? Finish the scene.
“Loving you would be suicide for me. Why can’t you see that?”
Her voice rippled in the confines of the small space. The words she spoke vaporized between the two. She couldn’t stand to be so close to his scorching heat. What he was doing to her? The way she responded to his touch was unforgivable. Little by little, she could feel herself becoming less and less in his presence. Continue reading

Emilia glanced, shaking her head, at the one-thousand emails she received today.
In alarm she said “I got more than I bargained for!”
“What was that hun?”
She looked over at her boyfriend of 3 years and threw her hands to her face Macaulay Culkin style.
“You’re not going to believe this. The request I posted on Twitter looking for people with paranormal experiences generated 1,000 responses!” Interested in the paranormal since childhood, Emilia was preparing to write her thesis Clairvoyance: The Paranormal Experience.
While running to the store earlier today, I saw a man hanging around with an interesting T-shirt that I happened to catch in my mad dash to get the one item I forgot on my last trip. I couldn’t read the entire thing because his beard, which was grey and white and flowing at least a foot under his lower lip, was partially covering it. The word emphasized, though, was SARCASM, and something about it being lost on others.
That got me thinking… Continue reading
