Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
At the end of this post, you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
I’m using: ramen ~ budget ~ glory days ~ softball ~ if looks could kill ~ better off dead

Thank you, Jenniy!
I was all set to pull out some fiction and then all of a sudden for the first time in I’ll say 8 years my husband is going to play softball so I decided to make this an update post instead. Granted he used to play several nights a week and he was very good. Hence, the several times a week. He’s healthy as a horse. I’ve literally seen him sick probably 5 times in the last 25 years.
Back home he was kind of legendary because of his antics. I’ll admit those were his glory days. He would be the only sober one playing (he drinks maybe once a year if that)…maybe that’s why he was so much better than the rest. The stories I could tell you!
These days he sits on the couch more, eats more, and the only exercise he’s been getting is moving his thumbs. He drives a big piece of equipment where he has to use his thumbs…yeah exhausting I know!). So for the first time in our married life, I’m wondering if him playing sports again will go well. We’ll see! I’m hoping he doesn’t come home giving those “if looks that kill” because he feels like he would be better off dead! I’m just hoping to not be eating ramen noodles this month as I budget in new softball equipment!
