WRITER'S WORKSHOP PROMPT:
Relay an entertaining conversation or string of emails you recently had with someone.
Texting my sister...
Me: Maybe I'll post our conversation about having a conversation. But is it entertaining? Hmm
Larisa: Well probably I'd like to think we are always entertaining at least I can say I'm a drama dork for sure! Feel free if you'd like.
Me: I'm a drama dork in my mind. Just rarely say it out loud. Maybe I'll start. Could be therapeutic.
Larisa: Haha yes it could!
Me: And maybe entertaining too. maybe.
Larisa: Yes try it
And I think I shall, but not today. So for now, here is the texting conversation-- about having a conversation-- that I had with my sister...
Me: We need to have an entertaining conversation so I can blog about it for tomorrow’s writing prompt. Problem is I don’t text about Valentine BJs (a reference to a blog we both read)
Larisa: Hahaha that’s funny!
Larisa: Umm we have had a lot of entertaining conversations in our lives. You have a good memory pick one and I’ll help start it up again to make it interesting.
Me: Sorry I was driving & I don’t text and drive, that’s a public service announcement. Yes we have had some entertaining conversations but do we want to share them?
ANOTHER LONG PAUSE...
Larisa: Haha I texted you back before getting into my car to get Linds and was thinking, dummy your going to be driving and can’t text back! @ bus stop waiting. Umm some maybe, not some probably.
Me: Today’s my anniversary so I guess I could talk about the entertaining things I’ll be doing to celebrate, but there again I don’t text like that.
Larisa: Yes but you could do something fun with that without being crude. K going to drive again so be back to you in a bit.
Me: True. Crude is not cute, that’s another PSA. Although I was laughing at the Kardashians last night when they were talking about putting mayo on certain body parts to make them shine. Only sisters or bffs can talk that way but those girls can be a little extreme. But then again (another family member whose name I will protect) might talk about mayo.
Larisa: That was soooo funny! Love those guys!
Me: Me too. It’s a guilty pleasure. We should go on a sister trip. Not that we have any money but we can start saving our pennies, talking about mayo is optional.
Larisa: Haha yes we should!
Larisa: Anything is better than my conversations with 2 year olds. (she runs a daycare)
Me: Very true. Maybe we could kick the men out and have a sleepover at one of our houses since we’re all poor.
Larisa: Yes! Kids need to be kicked out too! Please!
Me: Of course.
Larisa: Sorry I couldn’t give you anything good to talk about. Think that’s why I like Kardashians and OC Housewives, fun to hear some craziness
Me: So true! Now I’m watching High School Reunion how’s that for some craziness. I didn’t even go to my reunions.
Larisa: I hate reunions they’re dumb! Same crap just older people lol
Me: Like I said, craziness!
Larisa: You need to give me an idea for something to write about on my blog
Me: You need to go to mamakatslosinit.com every week she posts 5 prompts to choose from then you can link up on Thursday if you want
Larisa: I'll check it out thanks
And there you have it. A typical conversation with the sis. Entertaining? Well, that's highly debatable. But stay tuned, I think our conversations are going to get much more entertaining now that I've decided to be open and free with my drama dorkiness (seriously, wouldn't it be fabulous if we could all be open and free with our drama dorkiness? Just think of the blog fodder we'd gain).
P.S. If you're curious about what the mayo's for you'll have to look elsewhere. This is a G rated blog. Well maybe G minus, but still, no details on the mayo.
