For the next 30 days I’ll torture you with my stupid answer to the writing prompts taken from the 30 Day Writing Challenge and the 30 Day Song Challenge. Here we go:


Writing Challenge – Day 12:  Something you hope to change about yourself and why.

There’s something that has tortured me from infancy.  It is an issue that many a brave soul has tried to help me overcome to no avail:  I can’t ride bicycles.  I have tried countless times but I just can’t.  Every time I get on a bike I squeal like a tiny weeny girl.  And I run.  There’s no reasonable explanation for my inability to ride bikes.  The only traumatic experience I’ve had happened two years ago when I nutter crashed into me with his bike and I lost use of my right arm for three months.  But I’d love to learn anyway because people seem to have so much fun riding bikes and sometimes I feel like I want to join in on the fun.

Song Challenge – Day 12:  A song from a band you hate.

There was a band that all kids my age loved when I was 8 or 10 or whatever.  It was a popular band; their music was played on radio, on the bus to school, during lunch breaks, the kids would sing their songs non-stop, and I couldn’t stand it.  They had I concert in my city some time ago and I everyone was possessed by joyful nostalgia whereas I wanted to puncture my ears with finely sharpened pencils.  You probably won’t know who they are unless you grew up in South America in the late 80s/early 90s.  They are a hellish band I still hate.
