Don’t try to tell me you’ve never done this. You’d better not mention any gifts you’ve investigated for this Christmas or Hanukkah, just to be on the safe side, but I’d love to hear about your checkered pasts. Remember that everyone who comments on my blog before December 23rd at 10 pm EST is in the running for a $100 bookstore gift certificate.
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, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true.
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! 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’ll start us off with my own tale of shame.
