#SoCS – Crunchy roll


You might be wondering to yourself, what is it with that woman? She posts prompts and half the time, she can’t even make it on time to her own party. (That woman would, of course, be me.) Not that I think you think of me much. I probably think of me, much more than you think of me, in fact.Β  My commas are all over the place tonight. Oops.

But I think what’s really wrong with me, other than my recent comma disability (it’s late, that’s my excuse), is that I have too many roles. Let’s see …

I’m a mother.

And a father, kinda, because it’s a one-parent household.

I’m an author.

I’m an editor.

I’m a housekeeper.

I’m a picker.

And a grinner.

I’m a lover.

And I’m a sinner.

… wait. Those last four might have been an earworm.

What it comes down to is I’ve got too much to do on the weekends. Silly of me, I suppose, to think I could keep this blogging stuff up indefinitely, what with everything else. The more I take on, the more I fail, it seems. (Ignore the commas.)

So, I try to roll with it all. But it’s a crunchy kind of roll, with far too many bumps along the way to make it even seem like a smooth roll.

It’s more of a rutted roll. Slimy in spots …

Okay, now I want sushi. I tried to get away from it, but the craving is there.

A nice crunchy roll would go down so nice as a midnight snack.

Oh, and I’ve also got a head cold.

I’m blaming this post on that.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  1. We know you’re busy so it’s okay to be late. And when the hostess with the mostest enters her party late, everyone cheers. But I cheer late which would be typically awkward because now I’m late. πŸ™‚


  2. I love the organic randomness of this post. And an excellent earworm to have tonight. I wonder what my list would consist of? I think that would make for an interesting post someday


  3. I would like a crunchy roll now πŸ˜›


  4. Love the ear worms πŸ›. Another role is how you take such good care of us too. #SoCS is the highlight of the week 😎


  5. What you do by creating these fun prompts is bring all of us together. That is a marvelous thing. We get to share our zany attitudes, our creative geniuses and a good laugh or thoughtful moment. Its a wonderful thing and fashionable late is always acceptable.


  6. oooo a nice roll would be sooo good right now! wish I had one! xox


  7. I like commas, and use them a lot, whether needed or not, and I didn’t really mean to rhyme that…haha…oh and ellipsis are a favorite of mine, too.
    Speaking of being late to the party, I’ve just yesterday started reading your book, “The Magician’s Curse”. I must say it is soooo good! πŸ™‚


  8. It’s your party, you can’t be late – just fashionable.


  9. Great post. I know how you feel with lots to do. And thanks for the earworm. Now I need to go listen to the song. 😁


  10. People talk about me baby
    “Well don’t you worry baby don’t worry
    ‘Cause I’m right here right here right here right here at home ”
    More comma issues, I think!


  11. Rock and Roll with it Linda. πŸ™‚


  12. Oh bless you Linda! I know what it’s like to be busy… You’re doing great! 😍


  13. i do believe that part may indeed be an earworm….)

  14. You do have a lot of roles but as far as I can see, apart from the commas, the cravings, you are doing brilliantly! πŸ’œπŸ·πŸ’œπŸ’œ
