Prompt for the Day: “Apology”

The defensive people at the Daily Press division of Word Press want us to create works of art based on the word “Apology“.

Seems My Life Needs Apology for Even Existing

Why do I waste the air I breathe in each second of every day I exist on this miserable planet?  The mere water I drink could be better used to grow food for other creatures on this celestial body called Earth.  Am protective of young kids and defenceless animals.  My subsistence should not interfere with other creatures here at all!

If you would like to contact me, all you have to do is fill out the form below:

All responses will be read by me personally.  Thanks for you contribution of comments!

Ever feel like you live a pointless life?

  I used to handle the network traffic for major companies, including the U.S.A. Department of Homeland Defence, but am no longer able to handle those types of positions due to being confined to a wheelchair by a disease known as multiple sclerosis.  Miss the daily challenges of telling data packets not only where to go, but also how to get there!

Please Help Fight Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. If you would like to contribute to my fight against this mind stealing disease, please contribute by visit my personal website at http://saintpblogging.com/wp/ and seeing the copies of my writings located there!

 

Prompt for the Day: “Non-Regional Diction”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press are trying to make me feel critical of the way I talk!  The prompt for the day that they chose was “Non-Regional Diction“.  They also included the following sentence setting our overall direction-“Write about whatever you’d like, but write using regional slang, your dialect, or in your accent.”

Y’all can laugh all you want…

Have used the expression y’all since I was a child.  Also measure distances by number of fields away.  (You have to ignore the fact that fields are never the same size, but that is how I grew up in southern Illinois).  Grew up playing in the creek, but it was a “Mud creek” tributary running through our long pasture.

Last meal of the day was referred to as supper.  Mid day meal was lunch.   The guys had to have snacks available (cookies, piece of cake, etc.) in the afternoon.  You don’t want to be around a male who wants a snack and cannot find one!

Please help fight my disease

Prompt for the Day: “A Tale of Two Cities”

Think Charles Dickens wrote a book with the title of today’s prompt which is “A Tale of Two Cities“.  The Daily Post group of Word Press also asked us a question-“If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?”

City number One

The first city would have to be the place in which our current home is located.  Saint Paul, Minnesota is where we put the down payment on purchasing an older house.  That was back in 2004.  Have lived here happily since we moved in.  Have gotten a wheelchair ramp installed to let me come and go all by myself in my wheelchair.

There is plenty of public transportation widely available 24 hours a day for the handicapped citizens.  Many libraries, museums, and other cultural places exist here in the city.  Our neighbors are also really easy to get along with.

City Two

Traditionally, the area we live in is referred to as the twin cities.  Minneapolis is the larger of the two cities.  There is way too much violence in Minneapolis for my liking, which is why I didn’t even consider it as a place to live permanently.  They normally have a fight a day, sometimes resulting in a murder or two.

Minneapolis is where I have to go to visit my doctors and get my medicines.  The nursing staff in the Noran Clinic, where I go is excellent!

Prompt for the Day: “It Builds Character”

The people from the Daily Post division of Word Press posed a challenge to start us creating our next characters for our next writing projects with the following prompt “It Builds Character“.  They added a statement, followed by a question-“Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?”

My favorite Character

Prefer him in the books, but own copies of the filmmaker’s interpretation of him, too.  The person is none other than the young wizard Harry Potter!  Was raised by his aunt and uncle along with his cousin.  They all treated him cruelly, keeping him from knowing the truth about how his parents had died.  He managed to overcome their crappy raising to befriend most people who met him.

His best friends were Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.  The three of them fight against the evils of the world, both helping and teaching others along the way!  Displays a good example of friendship today’s kids could learn from.  Would like to ask Harry how he managed to face his worst fear, fighting Lord Voldemort.  Considering my worst fear is getting a MRI, because of my claustrophobia.

Prompt for the Day: “One More Time”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press submitted the following prompt to get our writing engines primed for the day “One More Time“.  They also included a single question “If you were able to relive one day from the last 12 months, which day would it be — and why?”

Got FREEDOM back

Would have to be the day that the gentlemen from the Ramps.org finished my wheelchair ramp from the back yard gate to our back door of our house!  Now I could finally come and go as often as I wanted or needed to.  They gave me my freedom back that day.

The guys were very polite and friendly.  Let them know what day I had one of my infusions scheduled for, so that they would have a way my husband could get me over the construction site to make my appointment.  Had to promise I wouldn’t use it without help until I signed the paperwork that the project was fully completed.  They picked up every single scrap of wood, nails, screws, and other trash just as rain started to pour down!  As much as I wanted to, did not go out and test the ramp out until the next day (not raining).  Was able to successfully navigate out the back door down the wooden walk way they had built all by myself! Reached the driveway of our detached garage needing absolutely no help from anyone.

Prompt for the day-“Free Association Writing”

None of my normal sources of writing inspiration had any prompts available for today, so dug up an old entry from Prompt Stomp week number 6 that I had not used yet. The prompt is “Free Association Writing“.

Have gotten needed inspiration from

The Prompt Stomp before so it was were I should have looked first, unfortunately now that sources like all my other places I normally rely on must have been to shaken by the tragedy in Paris, France on the 13th of this month.  Come on people, just like 9/11/2001 in the US you just have to move on with life!

Evil is first thing that comes to mind

Followed by destruction, loss of lives, wasteful massacres, blood baths, I could keep going indefinitely.  What is the point of mourning the lives lost, if we do nothing to help prevent the next time from happening?  Apparently monitoring the border crossings of existing countries is not helping any place here on Earth!  Think China may have been on the right track when they built the Great Wall years ago.  The population may not have liked it, but it helped cut down on invasions.  Sometimes building walls has not been to help people, but to segregate parts of the world.  Dividing families by building walls in the middle of the night is not suggested.

Please help me get my medicines

I have a disease called multiple sclerosis.  Unfortunately, the drugs that allow me to survive with it are extremely expensive.  Have set up a GoFundMe campaign to try to get the money necessary to pay for the infusions I have to receive every 28 days.  The link to my campaign is here: https://www.gofundme.com/zfabhdes Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Post of the Day: “Truth Serum”

The twisted minds at the Daily Post division of Word Press came up with the writing prompt of “Truth Serum” for today.  They also added the following question – “You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?”

I would like to try to have my husband take it.  That way I could learn the true reason why he is refusing to return to the chiropractor.  Know his back still bothers him, so why won’t he go visit the man for an adjustment?  Is he that worried about the cost?

Enter your email address to follow this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.


Considering the amount of money we waste on my medicines to help me survive with my multiple sclerosis, why shouldn’t we spend some to help his back?  Just doesn’t make any good sense to me!  Maybe I am just not looking at the issue in the correct perspective of life.  Or am I just completely insane?  Who really knows.

Donate if you want to contribute to my fight to keep my mental coherence from the ravages of multiple sclerosis[paypal_donation_button]`
Guess I think most people are honest in general.  Just goes to prove how naive I truly am in today’s world.  Thinking it is safe to trust other human beings with out knowing if they have an ulterior motives!

Should we stock pile a mess of this truth serum to gain access to the minds of criminals.  We might be able to prevent terrorism this way!  Or are we taking away their personal rights to their own thoughts, no matter how demented they may be?  Not a decision I am either qualified or willing to make.  Prefer my simple illusions of a honest world.  Was taught to tell the truth at all times.   Still abide by my upbringing!
