PLEASE participate

It’s not like I’m asking you to give a cat an enema.





Welcome to MARCH 7!


Today’s prompt is:  A funny event in your life.  

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


It was summer, 1981.  My son, a talkative 5-year-old, loved comic books…and Superman was one of his favorites.

He begged to see Superman II, but it was an adult movie, and I had to consider the comfort of 300 people in a crowded theater. 

I warned him, “You can go with me, but you can’t say a word during the movie!”

Adults sat on the edges of our chairs, drinking in the scene between Clark Kent and Lois Lane we’d all been waiting for since the first movie in 1978. 

He poured out wine, looked longingly in her eyes…and the entire theater was silent.

Without warning, my son yelled, “Super juice!”

The entire theater roared out in laughter.


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.
