I have made the decision to jump into the realm of possibly putting the time and effort into considering opening up my imagination and carefully piecing enough words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, pages and chapters together to create a book.
For this venture into the unknown, I needed something to create the words on.
My iPhone works great for posting on this blog but not so much for creating my subsequent masterpiece.
For Father’s Day, my wife commandeered a PC from her parents to aid me in my journey.
To steal a term, I call it-
“The Dark Tower”
That’s the name of the PC….not the book. I’m a few shingles short of a roof but I’m not crazy.
My step daughter who loves to type wanted to try it out. So she pushed the “on” button to the monitor and waited….
“I think this thing is broken…” She confidently stated.
“Ummm..it’s not broken, you need to turn the power onto the black rectangular box that is next to you on the floor for it to work.” I replied
“Oh…my bad.” She said with a hair flip and a smile.
She hit the power button. It sounded like a aircraft was leaving the runway.
She then asked,
“Where is Microscope Word, so I can type?”
“Thanks. What should I type?”
“I want an essay on ‘Why chickens don’t have lips.” I said.
And here is what she wrote…..
I may have to rethink my plan. How could I possibly top that?

Thanks you much for the fine article of wich much information I have been needing is inside of. I will be sure to pay much visits and atention to all future articles of such good information. Keep up with the good hard work. And speaking of hard, I have for selling some magic pills that will make you like a tree in your soft areas. Only fifty glabotniks for a bottle that will give you much happy pants for a long time.
Thanks… for not getting angry at my little joke…
And now I know why chickens don’t have lips. But don’t give up. I’m sure you can write something equally brilliant.
I’m giving it a go! Thanks for the encouragement. It is appreciated and needed.
Well if they were toothless, they wouldn’t be able to bite me, only gum me. But admittedly that’s just as creepy.
That is exact what she said after she read what he wrote!
haha, great minds!
Please tell your step daughter i will be first in line at the book signing.
I will do that!
Love her story and I’m sure I’ll love yours even more. So exciting!!!
Conquering fear and starting a new adventure. Thank you!
