I hate sweating. I do it when I am nervous, when I work out, when it is too hot….all the time. It is not attractive, and I highly doubt people like the feeling of shaking hands with someone who has been sweating, but it happens just the same. I guess everyone does it, but why does it have to be so unattractive and gross?Posted By mel On 03.03.2012 @ 6:44 pm
There’s a story about a Greek goddess who out of anger transformed a woman and all of her descendants into spiders- the very first spiders on earth. The goddess was upset because the woman, Areachne, was rumored to be a better weaver than the goddess, who was the goddess of weaving (among other things). So the goddess held a competition to determine who was better, and when Areachne won, she took her revenge. Therefore, spies only exist because of a goddesses pride and jealousy.Posted By Mel On 03.03.2012 @ 9:26 am
Forty years had passed since the cabin had seen guests; so when the family arrived they weren’t surprised of the shambles that remained. upon inspection there were little as far as equipment and furnishings. a lantern still hung above the wash bin, glass cracked, and some cutlery was strewn across the butcher block.Posted By mel On 03.01.2012 @ 3:52 pm
The German came around with his accordion . I wish he wouldn’t, but there was something about this that soothed my mother.
“I used to play this when I was a little girl,” she said softly. Her eyes teared up.
“What the tune?”
“No, the accordion. When your great grandfather died, I swore I would never play it again. And I haven’t.”Posted By Mel On 01.15.2012 @ 6:17 pm
What is a bench? Is it a park bench where all the lovers sit to neck and the birds come to poop? Is it the bench near a lake where people throw food to the ducks? Is it a bench that one would sit in on church? Is that what it is? Or is it something more? Can people just name a bench whatever they like? Is a bench not all what we agree it is? Can we change the meaning of a word if enough people agree that something else is a bench and not the bench before? Is this not all some philosophy? Linguistics? An apple? An orange? Are these not all things that we can change the meaning over by allowing the people to change the meaning?Posted By Mel On 01.14.2012 @ 8:08 pm
A time for the kings to take a bow.
A time for Nature to showcase her wealth, when the lush fornication of summer gives way to the sweet fruits of labor.
The trees bleed red, gold and brown and gently, ever so gently lay their crowns onto the ground.
All wealth and treasure gleaned from barren branches.Posted By Mel On 11.07.2011 @ 11:40 pm
She didn’t want to panic with every step of her day to day routines but that was her habit. She was an alarmist and she couldn’t help it…but then again people needed her to be that way. Otherwise the disaster would not have been averted. She saved the day with her personal flaw and for that she was thankful.Posted By Mel On 11.07.2011 @ 5:52 am
She couldn’t believe what she was hearing? An X-acto knife? Could the woman have been her sister? Her Aunt Tabitha? Now she was being convicted and there was no telling what she would have done with the fetus she cut out of the other woman’s belly. It was the grossest thing she’d ever known.Posted By Mel On 10.11.2011 @ 5:35 pm
Flat ironing her hair with a plancha. I can remember looking up to her, even when she did ridiculous things like that. She was pretty and older and I wanted to be just like her. Then we grew up and pretty only lasted her so long. Once you realize there is more than just being pretty, it’s too late to develop anything else… like a personality. I wonder if she still uses that plancha.Posted By Mel On 10.10.2011 @ 5:54 am
Wow… I just thought of you. Don’t flatter yourself, you’re not that important. You’re one thing to me and another to the next. You have no real say in what I should do but that doesn’t stop you, does it? You keep returning with new ways to say the same things, but guess what? I haven’t changed, I’m as moral and immoral since the last time you saw me and I am just as happy. No, happier.Posted By Mel On 10.04.2011 @ 12:12 pm
Suppose we get this right and we both can stop looking. Suppose there is such a thing as the one and you are it. If so, lets make everyone jealous. Lets be as happy as the couples in the movies and let’s live out the expression of growing old together. Suppose that love is true, but if it’s not we’ll just call our love something else.Posted By Mel On 10.03.2011 @ 8:16 pm
