Wordful Wednesday-Guest Post with Mama Kat

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see my right side bar:

Today it’s Mama Kat from Mama’s Losin It being Wordful, and I couldn’t be happier.Β  I mean, she is the Writer’s Workshop Maven, so she always has interesting things to say.Β  In fact, she keeps me laughing on a regular basis.Β  And not just on her blog.Β  I’m a lucky duck to have her as a good friend!

Mama's Losin' It

Hide and Seek

Laina’s had an imaginary purple house for about a year now. It’s filled with dogs and she often talks about all of the things she can do there that I won’t let her do here. Her purple house statements are sporadic and fleeting, but I’ve been writing them down for my own entertainment purposes:

“At my purple house I went for a walk with Sparkle and Lily and I saw a monster and he be nice to me. I have Sparkle and Lily, I do…on The Diamond Castle they’re the same, they are. They’re at my purple house.”

“I can’t use your car cause I’m still a kid. I wanna drive to my purple house cause I wanna pick up Sparkles and Lily and I will come back. I want my own house and my own car.”

“Jake’s mom has a map to my purple house and he’s gonna sneak and get one of my dogs. I better hurry and get Sparkle and Lily.”

“Efferyfing in my purple house is broking. Because all da dogs are broking efferyfing.”

“It hab a lotta dogs and all my friends can hab one…I mean…I don’t hab a lot of friends, I only hab dogs.”

“I put milk, juice, an water in a cup at my purple house an give it to my dogs. Sparkles and Lily really like it.”

    Now, I need a favor from YOU. Would you help me get a new meme started? On Thursdays, I am doing a β€œThirk Thursday” with β€œthirk” meaning things-that-irk-me.

    I’d love for you to participate by posting a separate item about something that irks you or including it in a regular post.

    There’s a way for you to link your post to mine every Thursday.

    Unfortunately, I’ve got a LONG list of little annoyances – things that irk me. I’m mentioning one each week.

    I would greatly appreciate a bit of help to get this started. Thanks so very much in advance and Happy WW!
