Prompt of the Day: “My Favorite”

The possessive people at the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with today’s creative prompt of “My Favorite”.  They asked a single intrusive question followed by a single sentence of instruction-“What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.”

Personal Favorite

Would have to be my husband.  Forced to spend a month away from him while I was sent far out of state.  At the time, we were living in an apartment in a suburb of Chicago, IL.  Had to spend an entire month in the LA area of California.  Not only was I very lonely, missed an entire month with the two kittens we had just adopted!  When I finally made it back, my cat ignored me for about an entire week!

My husband met me at O’Hare airport when I flew in.  After we got back to our apartment, dropped my bags on the floor and things got interesting.  He proved how much he missed me physically.  Was a great coming home party of two, if you know what I mean!

One of the other computer people in the LA team actually tried hitting on me, even though I had clearly let them all know that I was happily married!  The geek actually pursued me after my husband and I relocated to Colorado.  Had my husband attend one of our company’s meetings so he could show the idiot how much bigger than him he was.

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is 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 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. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

All help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity!

Prompt for the Day: “Learning Style”

The extremely nosy people at the Daily Post group of Word Press wanted you to use the daily prompt of “Learning Style” to influence today’s works.  The included several more invasive questions: “What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-on-one? Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?”

Knowledge comes to me through Reading

Have been reading since about the age of three.  Am a voracious reader.  Read every single book the library in the grade school I attended as a child at least once.  Granted was a tiny town.  The graduating class from high school included something in the low forties number of graduates.  Actually included several small towns like Clairman, Darmstadt, and a few other postage stamp sized places.  No surprise I was at the top of my classes.  Knew the subjects better than some of the teachers there did!

In junior and senior high school, learned to take exact notes from my classes.  One teacher was dumb enough to question a proof I wrote in Geometry class.  Had to incorporate another one of my math teachers to confirm I was correct!  I used absolutely no questionable foundations in my proofs.  My main math teacher explained all she had to do to see the solution to the proof was correct was to look in the previous class proofs I had already done.
