Mama Kats writing assignment


Time for Mama Kats writing assignment...




here are the rules:

Choose a prompt, post it on your blog, and come back and sign Mr. Linky!!

The Prompts:

1.) Tell us about a stray animal you took in.

2.) Write a poem for your favorite teacher of all time.

3.) Describe someone in your life you wish you saw more of.

4.) Write a letter to someone who bothered you this week.

I am doing #4...with a twist!

I am writing this to you TWITTER yeah...you know who you are...you suck me in, you promise me friends, loyal readers... but you fail to deliver. Your seductive and dulcet tones enchanted me at first... then I started to see you for what you really are...

For I am really bothered by your failure in these departments... I try to faithfully "tweet" in hopes that all 145 of my "twitter-ees" will head, no RUSH over to my blog posts... the ones I labored on, the ones where I poured my heart out... BUT NO. Even my BFF's fail to utilize your little "tiny url" and visit me... Yes, a few do visit... but not as many as you promised me... hordes of readers are not singing my praises, or perhaps I should say "tweeting" my praises... you are a liar... NO, worse than a liar...you are a tease...For Ive wined you and dined you... tweeted and re-tweeted... posted url after url after url and you take my gifts and leave me hanging. Leave me unsatisfied, leave me wanting more...

Yet, I still come back for more... what does this say about me and about you?

Twitter is a time killer. I was sucked in for a while but I've pulled back big time.
