Five Ways to Win My Heart

Ok Red over at M3 is doing a 30 day challenge. I'm going to attempt to play along. Here goes.

OK five ways to win my heart is the first topic on the list. It does more than just pump blood. It has more than a singular purpose.

1-5. Don't be stupid. 

OK let's elaborate on that shall we. 

1. Be Thankful 

Be thankful for what you have, do not complain that you only have what you need but it is not what you want. There are those with far less than you have yet they complain not. They do not know any different so they have nothing to complain about, they simply accept the circumstances as they are.

2. Do Not Underestimate Me

OK so it should have been first, but it didn't pop to mind first. OK maybe it did, I just cleaned the language up a bit. To say that I do not bite would be like saying my dog(s) will not attack if you provoke them. 

Granted for the most part they are big babies, but if you swing at them they like I have the right to defend themselves. The day you tell me my dog(s) have bitten you I will likely start a campaign to obtain a legal defense fund for them as I know their nature well enough to know you had to do something to them to invoke the response.

In the same vein do not provoke me in an attempt to get a specific response or pick a fight and act surprised or injured when I make no efforts to avoid your jugular. I will do so willingly, without hesitation given enough of an attack to warrant it. I will do so without regret. So before you provoke me, you might want to cover your wounds before you have to go lick them again. You better be able to stand your ground.

3. Show you made it past kindergarten.

A gorgeous man is a feast for the eyes, when he opens his mouth to leave you to question that he passed kindergarten it is an assault to the ears. 

4. Pay attention.

Contrary to popular belief I do not actually care for the sound of my own voice. Do not make me repeat myself because you lack the ability to close your mouth and open your ears long enough to have a clue to reality.

5. Leave my animals alone.

Do not pick on or complain about my animals. They live here, it's their home and they are family. There is a pretty good chance I like them more than I like you, especially if you failed the first four items on this lists in their entirety. 

Thanks for stopping by, visit M3 for the full subject list of the 30 days. Until next time, please help fight stupidity.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
