Hahahaha! Grrrreat is right!
Remember, (if you've been reading my A to Z Challenge, this question would apply to you as worded, otherwise this would be new information to you) ... I first stated that I was not going to read the blogs of my blogging brothers and sisters who are participating with me in the Blogging A to Z Challenge April 2012... only until I have posted my post first... then definitely I will read the posts.
Well... I went and did it! I didn't mean to... but.. while participating in my daily blog hops I stumbled on three blogs in a row who were participating.
You're probably thinking, what's the big deal?
Thing is, I had sat down to write this post and I could not think of a single word that I would want to write about that started with "G" for the life of me! I'm not being a drama queen either... really... I was thinking about it all day ... and nothing... zip... zilch... zero... nada!
So I decided to visit my favorite li'l community ... voiceBoks... such a great place to share your blog, meet other bloggers and read their work as well. Well, enough with the free plug there... lol.. just kidding. Anyway, I was making my daily rounds and then all of a sudden I stumbled on the first blog, their word was Grateful... OH CRAP! I yelled. While Calley hollered at me from the other room for swearing, I realized what I had stumbled on. How did I not think of that word? I thought.
I wonder if I would have kept thinking, would I have thought of that word? Rats! Now I can't use that word. As ridiculous as that may sound, I couldn't even read her post yet. I can't go back to check.. it's just that I do not want anyone's post influencing my writing.
Okay you're right, I thought. I was being ridiculous. SO I decided that I would come back later and to read the blog [I'll even come back and let you know the blog's link after I read it.] I didn't think twice about continuing my daily rounds ... and then WHAM-O!! Another blog, this time their word was Gratitude.
Again with the voices in my head. How did I not think of that word? I thought. I wonder if I would have kept staring at my screen... would I have thought of that word? Rats! Now I can't use that word. That's a good one. I'm grateful, I would have thought of either words. Would I?
I didn't want to be ridiculous, so without thought I just went on my merry way... back to my rounds. AND AGAIN!! BAM!! It was instantaneous. Listen, I can't even tell you the word, because as soon as I saw the "G" I went back to the previous page.
I immediately came back to this page.. Oh great! I wish I hadn't taken a break!! I wish I had not ... blah, blah, blah... and then all of a sudden... out of no where... I just let out all this air.. and out came a big roar... Grrrreat!
Then all of a sudden I thought... Grrrreat?
Grrrreat, is my "G" word. (Big smile... why not?) wink, wink
