Ailing Me, Ailing Shorty

19 Jun

I hate to whine (well, not really) but this is the worst cold I’ve had in a long time. It’s just knocking me out. Anyway, I’m not sure it’s affecting the quality of the shorties, which just goes up and down as usual. Today I made a little something (and only a little something, as the title of my post suggests) out of another childhood memory. I have used personal experiences far more than usual since this project began and I’m sure that will continue, given the need for something new to write about every day.

Working Title: Match Lure
1st Sentence: What kid doesn’t succumb to fire?
Favorite Sentence: Even a plodding bookworm like me, a too-sweet-for-words little primp who took pride, even as a small child, on surpassing all expectation of goodness.
Word Length: 311
