Candy Clown Shoes... Secret Subject Swap September 2014.

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 11 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is:
You receive a mysterious package, inside you find a pair of clown shoes filled with candy...

My initial reaction to this subject is that I would return to sender the package. I might would even move. Clown shoes with candy?! That is some horror movie type of stuff. My friend HUZ said "That's some John Wayne Gacy type of shit!" I agree. I am not actually scared of clowns, and candy can be a good thing, but clown shoes full of candy sent to me? Weird.

I must say my curiosity would be piqued. I would definitely look to see who sent it. If I knew the person, I would call them and we could discuss it. Maybe there is a great reason behind it. If I didn't know the person, it would definitely be returned to sender. Moving may even become an option. 

It would also depend on the type of candy. Chocolate? Meh. No thanks! (Please don't judge me! I know I am weird for not being a fan of chocolate. Trust me, everyone always tells me just how weird I am!) Starbursts, Twizzlers, Mike and Ike's, Hot Tamales? Well... Okay, maybe it is a cool gift. I mean Chadski does wear size 13 shoes. I would think clown shoes would fit him. Weewee would certainly enjoy it. 

This is the making of a great horror story. Truly! People receive a package with clown shoes filled with candy, and within days they are *dramatic pause* murdered in some terrifyingly horrific way. I do love a good horror story. 

The more I think about it, the more I must say, the condition of the shoes and the candy packaging also matters. Are the shoes new? Have they been worn? Is the candy packaged? Is the candy open and exposed? I am a bit of a germaphobe. This whole situation can be quite horrifying. I guess it is lucky I am not scared of clowns, or this would probably be horrifying all around. 

What about you... What would your reaction be? Would you eat the candy? What is your favorite candy? My friend Karen from Baking in a Tornado, has been asking us on Facebook about candy this week. I am sad to say that Hot Tamales (a candy I LOVE) beat Starbursts (My favorite candy). The truth is, I love lots of fruity candies. They are my preference. I am not a fan of Chocolate. Caramel is okay. I love nutty/peanut butter candies. As I get older, I find that I like candy less and less, though I do occasionally crave it. Please, if you don't mind, tell me your favorite candy/candies, in the comments. Also, I'd love to know your reaction to receiving a package containing a candy filled pair of clown shoes.

Now, I have some business I would like to handle. I love writing this blog. I love doing the blogging challenges. I plan on continuing to do the blogging challenges, for as long as my fellow bloggers want to allow it! What about the rest of the blog. Have you all noticed that I have been posting blogs fairly regularly lately? Basically just posts about me speaking my mind, and a few of me sharing pictures. I enjoy giving my family and friends glimpses into our life. I want this blog to be a blog you actually enjoy keeping up with.

So, how can I make this blog one you want to follow?

Would you like to see posts about recipes from Pinterest I try, and see if I am successful or not? Please note, my failures may outnumber my successes, but I think we could have some laughs along the way. Do you want more Weewee stories? What do you want? Please, let me know! Yes, I write this for my own enjoyment, but I write it for those of you that read it! 

I hope you are all having a fabulous Friday, and I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!!! 

As always, thanks for reading!!! 


  1. Sorry that my prompt freaked you out. I thought it was weird and the idea for it came from my husband. We were discussing writing prompts and he gave me that one. I'm not afraid of clowns but have never been a fan, getting clown shoes with candy in them would def. make me think twice about opening much less eating it. LOL
    Thanks for playing along.

    1. Oh it was a fabulous prompt!!! I quite enjoyed it!!! I will be revisiting it in the future... it put ideas in my head!!! <3

  2. Hmmm, maybe the circus is recruiting and thinks you need a bribe?

    1. I would fit right in at the circus.... LOL! ;)

  3. I would have to use that gift to freak out my oldest daughter. She is terrified of clowns! After I eat the candy, of course... ;)

    1. Haha!! That is evil... and I love it!!! :)

  4. Ohh no. Candy filled clown shoes would put me on edge. I'd be looking for "It" over my shoulder all day long!

    1. Exactly!!! It was my first thought!!!

  5. Ooohps? My first reaction would certainly be to look for a card. If there is one, and it's from a friend, I'd laugh about it and eat the candy. No card or weird card - probably through it away and try and forget about it. Still a bit creepy, though.

    Favorite candy: mint chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, M&Ms, gummy bears.

    I visited your blog outside the challenges a while ago and read your "pink" post and loved it. I always like to read about other people's everyday life, call me a stalker. Just the good and the bad of a regular Thursday.

    There are lots of food blogs out there, if cooking isn't your thing you shouldn't beat yourself up.

    1. I love to cook. If I have a recipe to follow, my food tends to taste perfectly fine. My biggest problem, is that my food is never very pretty.

      Thank you! I enjoy reading your blog as well! :)

  6. I love this prompt and kind of wish I had received it (though I loved mine, too!). The writer in me is screaming to write a scene involving clown shoes with candy. Very creeptastic!

    1. Indeed! Chad challenged me to write a story using this. I plan on doing so as soon as possible. I already have an idea. It is cliche' but fitting! I'd love to read your take on it!

  7. Yea, I'd move too. Clowns freak me out. haha

    1. Clowns are freaky!!! I am decently okay with them.... but It scared the poop out of me!

  8. OMG...I would so be freaked out... I'd be worried a clown was now hiidng somewhere in my house.

    1. Yessssssss! I'd be making Chad search closets and under beds and in corners and cabinets. LOL

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

Mother Earth #UseYourWords

Welcome to July's Use Your Words post! This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six 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 is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by:
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…
