Load of Bull #FunnyFriday July 2015

Today’s post is 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. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Sanity Waiting to Happen (

1. Something tells me this meat may taste a bit odd.

2. Bob: Are you sure this is what she meant?
Bill: Mary said to get some imitation beef for her Aunt that is a vegetarian.

My Life's Villain #UseYourWords July 2015

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.

My words are: scrumptious ~ villain ~ slowly ~ kaleidoscope ~ bathroom They were submitted by:Dinosaur Superhero Mommy(Thank you for such interesting and challenging words!!)

I don't know how it happened. 
It happened slowly.
Or maybe it happened quickly.
One moment I was living a simple life.
Walking around with a kaleidoscope worldview.
Suddenly I was the girl spending hours in the bathroom.
Beautifying myself.
Pampering myself.
Using scrumptious smelling lotions.
Wanting to look my best for you.
Going out on dates.
Making plans for the future. 
A future with you.

It Gets Better #SecretSubjectSwap July 2015

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 12 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: One of your closest friends says to you that he or she feels like giving up. It isn't a suicidal expression, but you can see this friend is defeated and incapable of seeing anything positive. Forget for a minute what should or should not be said to a person with depression. From your heart to theirs, what would you say? It was submitted by: (Thanks for such a great and deep subject.)
Honestly, I would tell my friend not to give up. That problems come up and bad things happen, but it always gets better. Problems can be solved, and good times happen just as often as the bad. I would tell them if anyone knows this, it is me. I have been through a great deal in my life, and I have want…
