This week’s challenge: 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.
Usually I would mow the lawn on a Monday.
But, my shed needs fixed and my bushes trimmed.
Then, there’s the sink backed up and clogged.
My nails need manicured.
The dishes are piled in the sink.
Where’s my pen, I need a list for groceries?
What’s that stain on my shirt, I think it’s gravy?
Well, what have I got done for the day?
Nothing, because the bank foreclosed on my house,
Since I got so distracted by all my other chores,
I forgot to pay my mortgage!
