Every Fiveish Years Or So, Christmas lands on the 24th or 25th, and The Cantab Open Mic takes the night off. This was such a year.
If you had a full week off from your responsibilities, a week that youwould never be asked to make up in any way, a week where no one was allowed to send you e-mails, texts, or ask how to determine the proper amount of tax in your state, what would you do?
For the purposes of this scenario, travel is not prohibitively expensive, no money you spend will affect your long-term finances. Everything in the world is at your disposal. What do you do? What do you not do? Which thing do you think people expect you to do that you will definitely avoid. Which stereotype people have about you, personally, will you be absolutely adhering to?
Describe a physical place or location that seems custom-designed to ruin your relationship with someone.
I don't mean Christmas or Thanksgiving Dinner with your extended family, per se. I'm thinking more along the lines of Ikea, the DMV, or anny grocery store.
Write a poem wherein you introduce an animal that would be especially bad at driving (or expand it to a skill or trade you have). What specific things inhibit it? What would you imagine it should be able to overcome?
Write a second part in which you find it difficult to perform that animal’s natural skills.
I hate to brag, but I'm a one-man parade,
Jehova in drag, the church in a dress.
Outside these walls I may be irrelevant,
but here I'm the Old and the New Testament.
You are unlikely to write a more powerful brag than that. But try. Write a stanza or two focused on a talent or body of knowledge you have, then close the poem with an epic brag about it.
