Book

Um Sunshine…  you skipped Pure.

I know but, Pure?  This Photo Challange is appropriately named.  If it were called a Photo Easy the prompts would be things I see every day like, computer screen, ugly co-worker, pop tart.  So I am going to have to let Pure rattle around in the old think tank for a while and come back to it.  Or you might just get a picture of a pop tart. 

In the meantime here is my photo for Book.

Seriously the fastest way to turn a frown upside down is to pick up this book and read a few entries. 

I’ll share one with you.

When you’re awkwardly standing by yourself with a full cafeteria tray of food and then suddenly spot your friend waving at you

The dreaded Cafeteria Standalone.  Blue plastic tray wobbling in both hands, carrying a big rolling glass of iced tea and a heavy ceramic plate loaded with steaming roast beef, wet mashed potatoes, and bland baby carrots, you exit the cafeteria line and glance at the full crowd in front of you. 

It’s the high school cafeteria, the workplace lunchroom, or the food court at the mall.  Everybody is laughing, at you maybe, while you stand and stare out at the kaleidoscopic sea of smiling faces.

As the seconds tick by you feel more and more out of place.

Maybe you quickly glance around the room while pretending to get ketchup.  Maybe you walk in a couple different directions so you aren’t clogging up the lanes or looking too obvious. Or maybe you just get really anxious and wonder if you’re going to have to sit by yourself.

But just as you’re beginning to lose hope you eventually see them.

It’s your friends in the distance.

And they’re waving.

AWESOME!”

  1. ‘He he he’ she cackles evilly, I was not going to set prompts like ‘toaster’ or ‘mobile phone’, oh no, I like to keep you all thinking. That book looks, awe – wait for it – some! I wanna read. For a moment there I thought Barney has actually written it…. Neil Pasticha… Neil Pastic – Ha… Neil Patrick Harris, hummmmmm, spooky.

I always love hearing from you.
