My theme for this week’s Story Weekend came to me from my seven-year-old grandson. I’ve managed to avoid Angry Birds all this time, but while spending the day with him Tuesday, he introduced me to the vengeful little critters, and in an effort to bond more fully with him, I indulged. And now I pay the price in full-out addiction.
I’d love to hear your experience with computer games, so here’s your chance to tell me and the rest of the world about the time wasters in your life.
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. I’ve loved reading your (very short!) stories. As always, there are a few “rules”:
- The story must be true.
- Try to keep it under 100 words. That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
- Avoid offensive language.
I usually kick off Story Weekend with my own comment, but I’ll be out of town when this post goes live and I’m not sure my comment will show up right away, so if it doesn’t, I hope one of you will be brave and get us started. Have fun!
