gloomy face

“Your voracious habit will lead to certain death.”  That was the pronouncement of the eminent physician whom I had gone to see regarding my troubling misbehavior.   The words clouded my mind as my world began to crumble.  The sound of the BlackBerry aroused me from the dismal ambedo.  I stood, switched my mood, and put the gloomy verdict to flight.  I’m not dead yet!   I care enough to turn the tide.  I’ll not be dazzled nor overwhelmed.  I’ll do it.  I’ll give up chocolate!

Words used:  voracious, eminent, misbehavior, cloud, crumble, blackberry, ambedo, switch, flight, care, tide, dazzle


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Interesting thoughts are generated by your blog. What else could be hanging as a threat of imminent death over many. Ie overeating, alcohol abuse, drugs. Many, many times cold turkey is the only way to go particularly if it was your life at stake. Many simply can’t go that way. Like the way you crafted this blog. Cheers!

    oh I do love Wordles. I’ve been neglecting them except for writing them into my notebook (paper) for later exercise. This is charming…

      Thank you, Gradmama2011. They are fun. I read these words and thought there was no way, but when I forced my way into it, it was great fun. The last word was rather a surprise to me. I got that far and wondered how I was going to end it. Bingo, chocolate worked. Rather a common problem for all, but not too serious to play with. 😀

        I hear you Oneta…I love to do Wordles, I like to use all the words, which can be challenging. I have some that are half done, I don’t like to force them. 🙂
