Writer's Workshop: From a glass's point of view.

So, it's that time of week again when Mama Kat gives out her writing assignment. What a way to get through writer's block! If you haven't joined the fun, what are you waiting for? Chose one of these prompts and write. Then get over there to Mama Kat's Losin' It get Mr. Linky'ed up with the rest of us!

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 chose to write something super silly about a glass on the edge:

OMG! How did I end up here? Have I reached my final days? I'm still so young. Sure I have a few scratches, but that's okay! More lips have been on me than Hugh Hephner! And I'm still in my prime. And here I am, on the edge. Can somebody save me? Anybody?

OMG! Here comes that littlest one. She's chasing the dog around the kitchen. Her little feet tapping the floor and I think I'm moving even closer to my doom.

Okay, my last will and testiment. I'm sorry to the plates for alway gloating that I got to sit on the top rack of the dishwasher every night. And I'm sorry to the teacups. I know I was an ass. Also talking about how clear, bright and shiny I am in comparision to your short, dull self. That was just mean.

Here she comes again. And here comes that four legged one, right for the table legs. I'm doomed!


Do you think all the kings horses and all the kings men will be able to put me back together again?

My glasses don't gloat. I was them on the bottom rack.

LOL. I thought this was a really silly thing to write about, but hey, the others woulda taken too much brain power that I just didn't have.
