Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop (is it really Thursday already?!)
- Write an entry inspired by the word: Yellow.
When I hear the word yellow I think of two things:
1. When I was pregnant with Rachel we knew that we were having a girl but decided to keep it a secret from everyone else. So, when it came time to "decorate" the nursery we used a lot of yellow. By the way, to "decorate" is a relative term. We moved when she was 8 weeks old and, even though it's over a year later, her room is still a "work in progress".
2. My friend Melissa (whom I REALLY miss a lot by the way; why must 3,000 miles keep us apart?) taught me this little rhythm so that when I come visit her I won't die from a snake bite. What a pal she is.
"Red and yellow, kills a fellow;
Red and black, friend of Jack."
Of course, if I ever do encounter a snake I'm not sure that I would spend the necessary amount of time it takes to fully examine a snake's color pattern before deciding whether or not I should run, no, SPRINT away. But still, it was the thought that counts.
