MamaKat's Writers Workshop!

The Prompts:
***
1.) If you were starring on American Idol TONIGHT and HAD to sing,
what song would you choose and why.
***
2.) Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping
and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today.
*** 3.) I just asked Pat to help me with a writing prompt so here's his:
"What do you think about the NBA All Star game"...blech.
*** 4.) What's your number one pet peeve? Develop a punishment for anyone caught in the act.
*** 5.) Write about something mean you did to a sibling growing up.
***
Well number 1 sounds like fun... but requires more thought than my fuzzy mind can handle right now... so let's just say..
"I couldn't carry a tune if you game me a wheelbarrow!!", and end it right here and now.
***
Number 2... See Here for that horrible sight... and see why I will not repost.
Nuff said...
***
Number 3... don't do B-ball.
***
Number 4... I have soooo many pet peeves... I may have to say them all... because I can't choose just one... sorry!
***
Number 5 is EASY... and I have soooo much to choose from!
***
Without further adieu...
My Pet Peeves.
***
1. Chewing loudly, with mouth open. STOP IT!
Punishment = a quick slap in the face and/or wiring jaw shut!
2. Turning every.single.light.in.the.house.on.just.to.go.to.the.bathroom.
Punishment = going through a week with a blindfold on.
3. Coming to tell me something when I am in the shower... that could have totally waited until I got out. How many people want to know about a bill that came in while "washing that grey right outta your hair"???? I mean really!
Punishment = my taking video of perpetrator while on the toilet and posting it on UTube.
4. People who make me repeat myself... over and over and over and over...
Yes, that's you boys...
Punishment = making perpetrators listen to a taped recording of me singing the National Anthem like a really awful American Idol nerd.
5. Turning up the volume of a laptop, while we are watching TV, in the same room.. Helloooo.
The Laptop can MOVE!
Punishment = FULL VOLUME CHICK FLICKS... ALL NIGHT LONG, WHILE YOU ARE TRYING TO SLEEP!
6. Talkers in movie theaters. THERE IS NO REWIND BUTTON IN A THEATER... SHUT UP!
Punishment = Airhorn and ejection from theater seat, like in the cartoons.
***
Rotten things I did to my little brother...
aka...Ahhhh, those are some great memories...dot.com!
I LOVED making him totally believe he was adopted. He had blonde hair, and we all had black hair... so it was easy. He soooo wasn't adopted... but even in High School, when I learned the finer points of copy machines... I made his birth certificate look like he came from KMart!
***
Yes, of course I put his hand in a pan of water and made him wet his bed! Duh!
***
I made him dress up in a dress when he was 8. Oooohhh, my Mama was SOOOOOOOOOOOO MAD AT ME! I think she is still a little pissed.
***
TOTALLY blamed him for EVERY broken thing in the house. I was really convincing too... able to cry at the drop of a hat... mmmm hmmmm!
***
Made him believe that every time he heard a police siren, they were coming to get him for tattling on me for breaking something. I told you I can be VERY convincing!
***
Told him our parents would take him back to Kmart if he didn't do everything I told him to do.
***
I was rotten. But only some of the time. I also did a ton of sticking up for him and protecting him too, especially when we got older.
***
Man, if my boys ever pull that crap with their siblings... I'm gonna....

  1. Let's hear it for the utility of being mean to our younger siblings. Otherwise known as "isn't great to be the oldest sibling?"

  2. I sort of think the answers to the sibling prompt will be giving lots of kids some bad ideas. Luckily most kids wouldn't spend a minute reading an adult's "uncool" blog. They don't know what they are missing.

  5. Love the pet peeves. I'm with you on the talkers in a movie. I've become old and grouchy at the theater. I will tell people to be quiet and will get an usher to remove them. It especially annoys me when parents drop their kids at the theater to annoy innocent citizens.

  7. 'ejection from theater seat, like in the cartoons'

    Your pet peeves are great! I couldn't think of any.

    The birth certificate from Kmart is awesome. Wish I had done something like that to my sister, she would have believed it!!

  9. hahaha my brother and sister used to tell me I was adopted, (father is dark skinned Italian and mother is blond and fair skinned Scotch)I'm darker then my father, both siblings are light skinned and never tan. They'd have me going for WEEKS!
    We sit back now and laugh about it.

  11. I also did the pet peeve prompt--and also couldn't (possibly) just choose one! I also did an entire list!

  12. So I need your advice on consequences. What do you do when your 5 year old keeps lying??? Help!!

  13. Oh you are good. Glad I dont live near you! Your boys dont read your blog do they to get any ideas?

    Oh your poor brother, how did he end up? Didnt all sisters make their brothers dress up as girls, gee we did with my baby brother and he lived to tell the tale. Most relaxed calm person alive after being subjected to so much with four sisters.

    By the way, I think you should write a book of helpful advice for Mom on bringing up kids - the no nonsense way.
