Prompt for the Day: “Phase”

The people who are either interested in patterns of the moon in our night sky or are way to into werewolf stories chose the word “Phase” to inspire our daily works of art.

Glancing through Telescopes”

May have used to fascinate me.  Tried to catch a glimpse of “Halley’s Comet” while in grade school, turned out to be a flop due to weather conditions.  Got to watch many meteor showers at night that way though!

Got way too hooked on reading books.  Have several books featuring werewolves now.  When the moon is full one of those creatures is generally on the prowl for a fresh human blood donor.  Since I know there is NO such creatures as a werewolf or a vampire, I do not put too much stock into my knowledge of the creature’s habits.  When Halloween roles around, I used to dress up as a vampire for the evening.  No vampire costume is complete with out a fake blood dripping from your fake fangs!  Grossed one of my high school teachers out that way.

The teacher apparently had a weak stomach to go along with her lack of teaching abilities.  Don’t worry, got along fine with the rest of the math and science teachers.  They actually understood their respective subjects.  I could have taught the class more effectively than she did.

Got in a loud discussion with her about how she had misgraded one of my geometry proofs.  The noise drew the attention of the next class over’s instructor.  He came to see what was happening.  He looked at the paper and let her know that I was absolutely correct.  Having been my calculus teacher he knew I was very thorough in my proving of math theories.  He also was never sickened by my favourite Halloween costumes, either!

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. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

May be the final COSTUMES installment, who knows?

My favorite costume in high school was because it had the tenancy to make one of my least favorite teachers literally sick to her stomach!  Come on, vampires are supposed to have blood dripping from their mouths, aren’t they?

Yeah, so some of it was actually real from the stitches that came out after having my wisdom teeth removed.  Still needed to go get a drink of water to wash the real blood out of my mouth!  It’s not my fault she had a weak stomach, after all.

Played on that weakness as long as she remained teaching at our high school (which wasn’t too many more years, thank God!).  She literally resulted to relying on the incorrect examples from the text books, even when I proved to her their inaccuracies!  Got to the point, that I had to have another math teacher confirm I was right by restating the proofs I had given her repeatedly.  Talk about having a slow thinking process for a high school teacher!

Just liked wearing the cape while I marched in the kid’s parade during school down the main street of the little town.  Being the drum major has some perks after all!  At least I didn’t trip over the rail road tracks in any of the Halloween parades.  That was during my last parade at the city’s annual Coal Festival.  Ended up not even getting out of step in my marching!

Halloween was a fun time growing up in a town full of drunks.  Carrying the lighted glow sticks didn’t necessarily keep you from being ran in to or ran over where I grew up.  Too many of my classmates would come to school after Halloween with unexplained bruising all over their bodies where a drunken person had used them for a punching bag.
