Tuesday...NaBloPoMo Writing Prompt

So the prompt for the day for NaBloPoMo... Has anything traumatic ever happened to you?

Yes it has on several occasions...

1. I went flying head first into the corner of a television when I was about 8 years old. Thanks to my wonderful cousin tripping me. I ended up with 300 + stitches and a nasty scar on my forehead.

2. In 2005, my father and I were fighting... The last thing I said to him was Go F**K yourself... I then left the house and went to blockbuster to return a movie and go to the bank... While waiting for traffic to clear to turn into the bank I had this strange feeling come over me, I decided to go home instead. When I returned home, there were 3 cop cars, a firetruck, and an ambulance, covering the span of 3 houses. I tried to walk in my front door, where the cops proceeded to tell me to use the garage door. When I walked into the house I saw the paddles being used to resuscitate my father. I learned that while I was at blockbuster, he had a heart attack while swimming and unfortunately he passed away that night. The moral of the story, never walk away when you are mad. You need to work it out, for you never know if nasty words will be the last thing you say to someone.

On a happier note I received two pairs of shorts from Robyn last night.. I absolutely loved them and they fit great.


  1. I am sorry about your father! You are so very right about never walking away angry however!

    GREAT NSV on the shorts! Congratulations!

  2. Thanks for the reminder! So sorry about your dad!

  3. Good words to live by and sorry about your dad

  4. Man, I guess traumatic things have happened to you. Do you have a scar from all the stitches? I'm sorry about your dad :(

  5. Wow, that is just a hard thing to live down. Very important lesson learned the hard way.
