PLEASE participate

It’s not like I’m asking you to tap dance Flight Of The Bumblebee when you’re deathly ill. 




Welcome to JUNE 6!


Today’s prompt is:  A strange thing that happened to you when you were sick.  

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


Funniest memes about being sick (20 Photos) : theCHIVE

Being sick is no fun and strange things can happen.

I nearly choked on my yogurt when I found out that I’d missed posting #TMAT120 for TWO MONTHS! 

Worst of all, I lost my sense of smell in April when I was sick for an entire month.  I’m blind without my ability to detect a molecule of dung from 100 feet away.

Do you know what happens when you have 7 dogs and a bad thunderstorm?  They forget there’s a dog door and use the floor as a bathroom. Once, if one tiny turd hit the floor, I’d be scrubbing.  But for the past 3 months, I can walk by 3 piles of the stuff and not know it’s there.


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.
