Consternating the World Post by Post

You all did it. In my search for Wednesdays, you treated me to enough good suggestions so that I don't have any excuse NOT to post on Wednesdays now. And rest assured, I've been looking through the dresser drawers, under the beds, in the back of the pantry - everywhere - just trying to find an excuse. I've written myself several epistles all arguing for Wednesday-free blogging, and I must say, I like the lawyerly tone I've adopted. But I've been overruled by my favorite judge: me. I will remain a Wednesday blogger.

The first new idea I'd like to try came from my neighbor and friend, Wendy. Miss Wendy thinks we should have a "Just Words Wednesday."
  • no full sentences
  • no paragraphs
  • no pix

I'm loving Wendy's idea. Here's an example she wrote:

Boring
Relaxing
Dreading the week
Having a nap
What to make for dinner?
Dog sitting
Summer ending
Unmotivated
For those of you shaking your heads, squinting your eyes, and being just plain, old consternated (English teachers have a built-in license to transform any noun into any other word form they wish. It comes with the highly marketable and high paying degree they worked years to earn. Thank-you for asking.)wondering how this differs for my typical stream of consciousness blogging, here's the answer:
I want to try to do this in exactly 15 words.
So, what's the state of your week or emotions or day or blog or dinner planning or dieting or dresser drawers?
Post it tomorrow in 15 words.

Just fifteen words? Oh yea, I can do that once I have my coffee.

It's hard to say if I could come up with 15 words in the right order and then on the other hand could I possibly keep it down to fifteen words! This should be interesting!

Ooh - tricky but challenging. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

To answer your question: Yes, Dalarna is a region in Sweden, but we don't live there. We live further south, 30 km outside the capital city of Stockholm.

15 words? not 14, or 16? Do I get a 'free' word in there? what about a filler???
Ok, I will try my best. If I fail, do I get an F from the teacher???

This gives me something to do in the 8.5 hours of drudgery known as my work tomorrow.

Bless you.

Oh my gosh...positive acknowledgement from a teacher.

Making a note of that!

Thanks for the shout out. Now...off to get my thinking cap so as to not disappoint.
