I’m late, and I’m nervous.
No, I am not pregnant, nor does it have anything to do with pregnancy. It has to do with Blogdramedy.
See, Blogdramedy threw out a challenge. Write 12 144-word posts revolving around “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” The participants are to include one item from the song each day.
Seems simple enough, eh? Yes, well, this challenged started 5 days ago. Take a look at your calendar – today is Dec. 5th. I’m late. So, I will back peddle a bit. Forgive me, won’t you?
“I’ve already established that fact, thank you.”
“Are you pregnant?”
“Are you trying to annoy me? I’ve already said I am not pregnant.”
“You really think you’ll be able to keep up with this challenge?”
“I appreciate your vote of confidence. Your support is overwhelming.”
“I’m just saying, I know the kinds of conversations that take place in your head.”
“Yes, and you typically lead them all.”
“Someone has to try to make sense.”
“Come on now, you know you have a hard time keeping one train of thought. What makes you think you will be able to carry one train of thought for 12 days?”
“Actually, we’re down to 7 days.”
“You are so screwed.”
“Would you hush?!”
“So what now? I suppose you have to think of a story that incorporates a partridge in a pear tree?”
