Thursday's Homework Assignment

It's time for our homework again. Mama's Losin' It has given us some options. Because she's just that nice. And pretty. Go and see for yourself....

The Prompts:

1.) Write from the point of view of a glass at the edge of the table.
2.) Describe a typical day during your Jr. High years.
3.) Why do you write?
4.) When I'm around too much negativity I...
5.) You've been hired as a writer for "Late Show with David Letterman." Your first assignment is to come up with a witty, nonpolitical Top Ten list for him to read on air.

I considered number two, but it would be pretty short.

A typical day in my Junior High Hell would be as follows:
Talk on the phone all night with my friends the night before.
Go to school the next morning wondering who would still be my friend.
The end.
Yup. Short, sad, true story. 

So I considered number 1.

Write from the point of view of a glass on the table:
Then I thought of how I would look through the convex glass, and how the glass would throw itself off the table and shatter into a million pieces, just to end its misery.
And that would be oh so sad.
The end.

Number 3, Why do I write? Already did that one...

Number 4. With all due respect, you guys have survived much negativity already on my blog lately, and I feel your pain and refuse to go there.

By process of elimination, I think I'll write about number 5. I may only GET 5, but I'll do my best.  Here goes:

David Letterman's Top 10 List ....... of why you should all read Mama Kat DAILY! (Complete WITH LINKS!!)

And the number one reason you should all read Mama Kat daily is .......

Stop over and see her.... Okay, okay, head BACK on over there and check out the next one on the list. I'm not completely "losin it", I know that's where you came from... lol

You completely did the whole assignment...I was laughing my head off at each one...

Ronda's Rants said...

You really are funny and not at all negative!!! You are a hoot! (I mean that in the nicest way) :)

Betty said...

Ok, now you really made me want to go and see what this woman is about! So, I guess I´ll see you over there... :)

Heather said...

awesome list. i love it. i can't wait until she's on ellen. maybe she will have a give-a-way and one lucky reader can go along with her. i hope it would be me! maybe that's what my top 10 list will be. :D

Now that's funny. I really am going to have to go check out some of your links one of these days. You're all a bunch of characters -- oughta create a sitcom. Wishin' y'all a very wonderful day!

Hey, I just thought of a great homework idea for everybody, but of course, somebody may already have thought of or done this. "Somebody Ought To Write a Country Song About My Life." Then you would. Write a country song. About your life. I could never DO that. But I sure would love to READ it.

Michelle said...

Crap, I wish I would have thought to kiss up to Kat. :)

I loved the simple response to JHS. No matter how popular a kid was back then, I think we all worried that our friends would turn on us......and they did!

Those be-otches!

Sam_I_am said...

you should be Mama Kat's publicist. :-)

Liz said...

Blogger constipation - that's great!!!

Stu Pidasso said...

I do believe you are not the only one in the Mama Kat Fan Club. And she is so pretty you had to tell us twice, but then again she IS all that. Good list. GB!!

Melissa said...

Great list.... she is definitely one of my daily reads!!

Sometimes Sophia said...

Ok. You get the prize: #1 Mama Kat fan. (Maybe you can be a roadie on the Ellen trip.)

angie said...

Great list. Brown Noser. j/k. Seriously laughed right through it. :)

Momma Trish said...

Good choice. Angst ridden posts are not as much fun as was this. Enjoyed reading it!

Ashley said...

I enjoyed your typical day. As a girl, I think we all wonder that!

Mama's Losin' It said...

Oh my GOD done lost yo damn mind!

...and I LIKE it. :) A+++ today, yyou just made my week! That must have taken you forever to link over to me like wonder you were digging around in my archives. Isn't it funny how those posts have like one or two comments. I should just spend the next two months re-posting my old stuff so that they can get the attention they deserve. ;)

Thanks for such a sweet post!
