Have you heard about the awesome Ketchup With Us writing prompts that Mel and Michelle offer up on the 1st and 15th of each month? Well I’m about to school you! Hmmm, maybe that was unnecessarily aggressive. Okay, I’ll soften that up a bit by sharing some of the hilarity and hi jinx that goes on with these two.
‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – PROMPT #13
In 57 words or less, tell us whose shoes you would
like to walk in for a day.
Whose shoes would I like to walk in for a day? I could get all historical and say Madame Curie, but wait, she died from radiation poisoning. Ack.
I could go all movie star and say Jennifer Lawrence. Heck, I would even be willing to fall in her shoes on a normal day, but my knee has been rather wanky lately and I’m afraid I might not be able to get up.
My teenage daughter is pretty fabulous but whoever sang “I want to be forever young” was an idiot because being an adolescent is hard. Don’t need to personally walk that path again; it’s rough enough hiking it vicariously through her.
You know who I really want to pick? Someone to walk in MY shoes for a day! So without further ado . . .
Wanted: Someone To Fill My Mom Shoes For a Day
Must be able to cook, correct homework and HTML code, clean cat puke, and email coaches simultaneously while looking sexy and fit.
Must be able to maintain clean laundry for a family of four (and the phantom family of five that MUST be living in the basement to dirty that many towels).
Must be able to chauffeur while simultaneously soothing a broken heart and remembering to pick up the milk. In fact, teleportation skills would be handy.
Most importantly, must have ovaries of steel to allow her heart to walk out the door into the wide world each and every morning.
Bonus: No pay!
Hit me up on Facebook if you want the job. -Ellen
