Come Listen To A Tale....

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
 At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them. 
I’m using:  cow ~ timex ~ phone book ~ banana ~ orange crush ~ rooster             
They were submitted by: Spatulas on Parade
Holy cow.
I find myself sitting here, contemplating life and all things that goes along with it. I do that a lot, these days. It's just how I pass the time. 
I look around at the people, rushing to and from, looking at their Timex watches and competing with each other in a grand race for all things materialistic. People on their smartphones, paying no mind to the things going on around them.
No one stops to smell the roses anymore. It's really sad.
I see people browsing their phone books on their phone, searching for that almighty dollar. They don't see that they are missing out on so much. They only see black and white. No fun colors, like orange. Crush, that's pretty much what they do. Crush against each other like roosters in a factory, just existing.

Of course, what do I know?

I'm just a banana. me a solid and see what my friends are doing?                                       Baking In A Tornado                          Spatulas on Parade                                      The Momisodes               Confessions of a part-time working mom                             Juicebox Confession                 Evil Joy Speaks                   Follow me home . . .                       Someone Else’s Genius                       Crumpets and Bollocks              The Bergham’s Life Chronicles                       The Sadder But Wiser Girl
Also, I just want to give some love to my beautiful friend Stacy from Stacy Sews and Schools. She usually participates in these things, but tragically, she couldn't this time, due to something personal that she shared with us, her friends. Please head over to her page and just give her a "Hi" and let her know you are thinking about her. Thanks!


  1. Thanks for the gentle reminder not to be a rooster *croooowing*
    I'm gonna look for a rose at the office now...

  2. Dear Banana, I loved your post. Damn those materialistic roosters anyway. Haha! Hope you're loving life these days <3

  3. Love that you used my words in a creative fun way. Great job.

  4. It does feel like we are getting lost in our technology. It's like seeing people walking looking at their phones, it's easy to think they are mindless zombies, but online, they are a real person. Weird.

  5. You're a pretty smart banana! We have older boys so it's really hard to tell them when they can and can't use their phones and laptops, but there always have to be family connection time. Every day. It's so much harder to do these days but that's more of a reason to be aware of the need.

  6. LOL! You're a pretty smart banana, lady. :)


So....what did you think? And are you THAT Sarah Michelle?
