Day 1

So today is the first day of my blog - welcome to my world. My goal is to blog through a set of writing prompts while also giving you my "silver lining" of the day. We'll see. First assignment: What Type of Gerbil Are You?
I guess I'm the kind that doesn't fight with my cage mate until we scratch each others' eyes out. I am probably the gerbil that spends the day finding sufficient bedding to hide in so that I can spare my little gerbil nose of the horrible odors gerbils emit. I'm a smell-conscious rodent with an affinity for cedar chips.
My silver lining: It's garbage day and NOT sprinkler system day - which means I can safely place my garbage and recycle bins at the end of my driveway without getting turbo-squirted across my midsection. Happy day!


  1. Because let's face it: there's nothing funny or desirable about about a good turbo-squirting.

  2. I love that the gerbil-Julie would know that her gerbil friends stink.

  3. I see the silver lining. I always feel guilty when the recylclers have to pick up soakin' wet cardboard that was given a good drenching from the sprinkler system. It stinks. Much like a gerbil. Now I am relived for you too.

  4. Welcome to the blog-o-sphere, Julie!! So happy to see that you started one. Wonderful way to keep in touch!!
