The Day Cupid Got Real

Check out this month's Use Your Words! This is post where a bunch of fabulously talented writers create posts centered around certain words. Seriously, wicked talent is headed your way.

This month, my words are: 
kisses ~ red ~ hearts ~ love ~ sucks ~ no sex tonight
They were submitted by:    

People take me for granted. They take what I can offer them for granted and, frankly, I'm getting absolutely SICK of it. It absolutely SUCKS to have people ask for something and, when I deliver, they don't offer ANY gratitude. AT ALL. 

So, I'm going on strike.

Oh yea, that's right.

No more kisses.
No more love.

Go ahead, call me a flying baby again. I dare you! No, I DOUBLE DARE you! You know what you'll get hit with? Not an arrow, that's for sure. It will be my fist! 

People want me to make them fall in love, then when I do, they forget all about this guy right here. No love for Cupid. Know what I do when I get done shooting ungrateful sad sacks all day? I go home, eat a microwaved meal and watch the Discovery channel. No one to call my own. But does anyone care?


So, if I ain't getting one else is. That's right. No sex tonight! For any of you! Let's see how much you guys like that. No hearts aflutter for ANYONE! The only red that will be seen will be on the faces of the flubbering fools as they try to ask out people out of their league that they'd normal dispatch ME for.

If you need me, I'll be in my La-Z-Boy, watching Deadliest Catch.                                 Baking In A Tornado                          Spatulas on Parade                        Stacy Sews and Schools                        The Bergham’s Life Chronicles                                   Battered Hope                  Eileen’s Perpetually Busy                        Confessions of a part-time working mom                            Someone Else’s Genius                                    Sparkly Poetic Weirdo                            Southern Belle Charm                              Juicebox Confession


  1. Haaahahahaha, Sarah, well said!
    Hey Cupid, you are invited at our house, there will be a home cooked meal and some real life conversation. You in?

  2. LOL, I can totally picture this whole post being narrated by cupid with facial hair and a cigarette sticking out of his mouth. Thanks for the laugh!

  3. Not sure if you are serious or talking tongue in cheek -- either way -- it was both funny and sad

  4. OMG!!! Dying laughing!!! "Flying baby"!!! This was great! I needed the laughs! THANK YOU!!!

  5. Haha! Love this! Could you imagine being Cupid? I bet he would feel underappreciated and misunderstood. Great use of your words!

  6. Uh oh - Cupid's pissed! I think he's adorable. It's too bad those arrows don't work on Legendary Figures. ;)

  7. Sorry cannot adhere to the rules. When it's bow chicka wow wow time, it's bow chicka wow wow time. No way to stop it.


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