Exercise # 198 - Strawberries

Use this for an opening line:

Grandma used to say, "If you want strawberries, don't sow radishes."

12,3, GO!!
Grandma used to say, "If you want strawberries, don't sow radishes." I wish I had taken that more to heart than I did. It was just something she said, you know? A little phrase that, when said as often as she did, nearly lost its meaning due to the repetition. Strawberries, radishes... who cared?

As a 13 year old who knew everything about everything, I would scoff and roll my eyes. "Well, of course  not," I'd say. "Who would sow radishes and expect strawberries? That person would have to be all sorts of stupid."

Grandma would just smile at my "wisdom" and shake her head. I would find out for myself.


This one was short, but I feel like it was appropriate for the topic. Poignant without being too wordy.

What did you come up with?

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List" What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious. Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list. Things That Are Yellow: bananas school buses yellow bell pepper tennis balls Post Shredded Wheat boxes (see right) lemons canaries the middle traffic light traffic lines the sun cheddar cheese hay corn butter cabs #2 pencils grapefruit raincoats (stereotypical ones, anyway) bees squash yellow jackets (I HATE those things!) the yolk of an egg scrambled eggs or an omelet peanut M&Ms the Simpsons various flowers rubber duckie etc... So that's my list of yellow things! :) The most curious? Well... I'll go with... but none of those are curious! That's silly. Check back later today for my 5th Character Profile on Nolan Ha
