PLEASE try this. 

It won’t taste good with mayo and onions, but it’s fun!




Welcome to February 1.  

Today’s prompt is:  Your worst Valentine’s day experience.

So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, I’ll share a vignette with you:

My sad foray into poor choices for male company began in college.

Sure, I had a boyfriend in high school. 

For about a week. 

But I’d been dating my first love for over a year when he handed me a bouquet of flowers and told me he just wanted to be friends.  He was, alas, attracted to a Vietnamese woman living in my dorm and wanted me to take the flowers to her… with attached message.

Being 18 and in a state of rigormortis I’ll call “mental mortification,” I did as he’d asked.

“Tell him I am not interested in flowers from a coward,” she said.

I looked him up on Facebook recently; all about (underaged?) Vietnamese girls.

Enough said.

Here are the rules:

  1. A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. It ends on the 2nd Thursday of the month.  

  2. NEW RULE:  Copy and paste your 120 word entry into the reply section below, along with a link to your blog.  To me, everyone who enters is a winner, but if you must have a winner, the entry with the most likes wins. 
  3. Limit your #TMAT120 post to 120 words. People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.

  4. When/if you publish your entry on your blog, use the #TMAT120 picture to show that you are participating in the prompt. Please don’t alter (except for size).  

  5. Please don’t use hard-core curse words. They’ll be edited out if you do, and you might not like the words I choose to replace them with.  🙂 

  6. Take time to read other people’s #TMAT120 & their posts, after all you might make a new friend.
