PLEASE participate

It isn’t as much fun as chasing a tornado, but probably a lot safer.  




Welcome to April 5.  

Today’s prompt is:  What are your top two “pet peeves?”

So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, I’ll share a vignette with you:

There’s a yoga position I call “the toilet squat.”  Women who do this over a real toilet and don’t lift the rim first can cause those of in a hurry to helplessly sit on their pee.

The point was to avoid an accident, not to sit on someone else’s thoughtlessness.

That’s why I do THIS whenever I use a public toilet.  If it soaks up moisture, I squat.

Then there’s the word “training,” which is mistaken for the word “education” about as often as microwaving a TV dinner is mistaken for cooking. People choose to be educated, following their passions and finding their teachers.  “Training” gives you A’s or a certificate for following orders.  

Critical thinking is flushed down the toilet.

Here are the rules:

  1. A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. It ends on the 1st Thursday of the next month.  

  2. Copy and paste your 120 word entry into the reply section below, along with a link to your blog.  To me, everyone who enters is a winner, but if you must have a winner, the entry with the most likes wins. 

  3. Limit your #TMAT120 post to 120 words. People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.

  4. When/if you publish your entry on your blog, use the #TMAT120 picture to show that you are participating in the prompt. Please don’t alter (except for size).  

  5. Please don’t use hard-core curse words. They’ll be edited out if you do, and you might not like the words I choose to replace them with.  🙂 

  6. Take time to read other people’s #TMAT120 & their posts, after all you might make a new friend.
