Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
I want to have a great, meaningful story to tell. But really all I can tell you is that when I grilled brussels sprouts tonight, and my son made homemade pasta, I thought to myself, “Oh. I know this book. This is a flashback in the middle of the dystopian adventure. This is when we had fresh food, and green food and salt and pepper. This is before. This is the start.” Of course, I reminded myself not to be so alarmist. Of course, I reminded myself that life is not a dystopian book. But, I mean, I’ve read a lot of dystopian books.
I want to have a great, meaningful story to tell. But really all I can tell you is that my husband seems to have the flu and my kids seem to have gotten a bunch of bug bites in Georgia, and I can’t seem to stop scrolling through Facebook. I like to balance my Social Media clicks. I click on a lot of things that tell me that everything is going to be okay, and social distancing is going to work. And then every so often I click on a story about how terrible the hospitals are in Italy right now, and the death story of a Chinese doctor last month. Once I read a few of those, I am always happy to find another inspirational story. The one about the people in Italy singing out of their windows is a good one.
I want to have a great, meaningful story to tell. But, it’s Friday the 13th, 2020.
As if we needed a Friday the 13th, people!
