One of our professors in college would often sit in awkward positions on a wooden chair as he was lecturing. He would wrap his legs around those of the chair and lean so as to balance the chair on two legs while in a precarious position. Occasionally he would just catch himself from falling over. A result was that students could easily get caught up in wondering whether or not he would fall on his head instead of concentrating on the content of his lecture.
This week’s challenge, then, is to write about distraction. Is it a coworker’s cleavage? A “private” conversation you’re not supposed to hear? Kids playing “terrorize your sibling”? It can be humorous or serious, factual or fiction, prose or poetry. Be certain to tag with FWE and include “FWE-Distraction” in your title. Please try to post by 1/11/13.
Thanks to those who responded to the 12/28/12 FWE-Disappointment challenge. Let me know if I missed any.
