- Where did you come up with the name A Short A Day?
My plan for this blog was to write a short story a day, but that didn’t pan. One day though. One day.
- What was your most embarrassing momemnt?
Ha, this took some figuring out as there are so many. Like when I tripped up the stairs at graduation or when my pants tore in the crotch at work (you could hear them tear) or when I went for a job interview and the zipper on pants was down and the lady doing the interviewing told me (and I did get the job). The list goes on, but I’ll stop there.
- Who’s going to win the Super Bowl? and by how many points?
Some gorilla picked the Seahawks, and they say he hasn’t been wrong in six years. Well my friends he is this Super Bowl and the Broncos are going to take it by 4.
- What is your dream vacation?
Anywhere that’s near the water or on the water. I don’t particularly care for the sand — it’s a texture thing, but the water is absolutely peaceful.
- Describe yourself in 5 words?
Smart, funny, witty, introverted, bookworm

First and foremost Happy New Year to everyone!! I feel it in my bones that 2014 will be a fantastic year.
I had to take some time away from blogging and all things social networking related the later part of last year. A REBOOT of sorts. You know get my house in order and plus I was getting a bit overwhelmed, so I needed to find a happy medium with work, school, my writing group, and blogging/social media. Hopefully I’ve found that happy medium.
During my reboot time I didn’t stop writing and I think I have some pretty good stories in the hopper. We’ll see. Continue reading
Daily Post: Tell us about a bullet you’re glad you dodged — when something awful almost happened, but didn’t.
“Dodged” is not the word I would use, but I would say it’s only by God’s grace and mercy I’ve been spared dying twice and paralysis.
I almost died when I was an infant. I suffered from really bad asthma and according to family members one of them almost took my life and I wasn’t even two.
The other instance was when I was driving home from work. My manager was in a generous mood and let a few of us go home early. As I’m driving I notice how eerily calm the traffic is for the middle of rush hour in the DC Metro area. I remember thinking to myself, “Sweet. I’ll get home in less than 30 minutes”, which is absolutely unheard of for that time of day. I remember changing lanes and then seeing fellow motorists opening my car door.

People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.
“Rose called for a doctor who can save us.”
“Who is this doctor and how can he save us from this?”
“He’s seen it many times. She calls him the doctor.”
This week’s Trifextra prompt was inspired by the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. For this prompt we had to write 33 words and choose one word that would repeat three times. It could only be a verb, noun , or adjective and it could not change in form.
I hope you enjoyed my little tribute.
