The A to Z Challenge is over! Yippee! I bet all of you who participated are breathing a sigh of relief.
I am too. Except I'm not really, because I didn't get to finish. So instead of being the Sarcasm Goddess I'm more like the Sad Goddess.
But being sad sucks, so I decided to make up my own rules and continue the challenge where I left off. Which means you guys have to pretend it's still April and I'm right on track. And you have to keep commenting and cheering wildly when I finish.
According to where I left off, today is "P" day. Today's story is one for the children, specifically gullible little girls. So go get your kids, settle in and listen to a tale from your Auntie SG.
I have always wanted to be one of the cool kids.
Okay, that's not actually true. But if I had to choose between belonging and being a total outcast, I'd go with belonging. Unless, of course, being an outcast involved shaking it like a Polaroid picture. Then I'd totally be an outcast. But still, shaking it is always more fun when others are shaking it too.
When I was a wee lass, a group of boys came up to me and asked me if I wanted to be in their club. Their Pen Fifteen Club.
But no. I squealed, "YES!" and started hopping around the room like a bunny on crack.
Finally, one of them grabbed my arm.
Me: What are you doing?
Him: Making you a part of the club
I waited with excited anticipation while he wrote this:
So gather 'round little girls and listen to your Auntie SG very closely. One day a group of boys is going to approach you and ask you to join the Pen Fifteen Club. They may have cookies. They may even have bacon. They may be cute with dimples. They may promise you fame and fortune. But it's all a lie. Turn and run away!
If you learn nothing else from me, learn this: The Number One Rule of the Pen Fifteen Club is Don't Join the Pen Fifteen Club!
And now...the best part of every post: Comment Gems!
Meredith: It is amazing the things that people will search for. One time I was Googling "is it okay to shower during a thunderstorm" and I got search results for "is it okay to put a centipede in my vagina".
A Daft Scots Lass: I detest the new interface. It sucks balls!
