Five Minute Friday

So I found this through Kayla Aimee's blog...I am always looking to improve my writing skills.  The idea is to write for five minutes on the prompt.  So, here goes...Please bare with me on this :)

The Prompt is Red:

Red is actually the color I am seeing right now as JoJo or Wolfie or Maddie has somehow managed to remove the Word Icon from my desktop.  And while I know how to use my Mac…I am not perfectly adept at it.  So I have no way to get the damn icons back.  Drum, Drum, Drum…that is the noise my fingers make as I sit here and try to type something meaningful about the color red.  This is my first time participating in this sort of activity.  I seem to be failing at actually talking about red.  I look around my office.  The only red thing I see is tape measure, and a red folder full of hospital bills from JoJo’s shopping cart incident that resulted in a skull fracture and subdural hematoma.  Do not allow three boys in a cart at once.  That is a true life lesson.  Now, I see mom’s in stores pushing their kids in the carts while their children are standing…Do you know how much that freaks me out?  Well, it does.  Think, think, think…I am thinking….Red, red, red, red….Red is the color of love, it’s the color of anger…Don’t you think that’s funny?  How can love and anger be associated?  I love my children but they sometimes anger me.  I love my husband, but he sometimes angers me.  Geez, I feel like a weirdo…


So, there you go...The timer really did go off at that point.  Mariphone is such a genius ;)

  1. Ooo, I love this stream-of-consciousness Five Minute Friday! It is funny that anger and love are both associated with red, and I've seen several others make the same observation, too. Thanks for sharing! :)
