It's Better To Give #SecretSubjectSwap December 2015

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 15 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:
What is the absolute worst gift you've ever been given?
It was submitted by: http://www.renasworld.com/ (Thank you for such a great subject!!!!)



This is such a horrible subject for me. The subject itself is AWESOME, and I wish I could ask all my fellow bloggers to answer it. I have a feeling that we would get some amazing laughs. The truth is that I really do not get a lot of gifts, and I am so grateful for every single one I get, that I cannot think of a single bad one. I have a horrible habit of placing sentimental value on things, especially gifts. So, yeah, I don't think I have ever been given a gift that I did not love. 

So, I did a lot of thinking. I even consulted Chad, and he said I should say dirty diapers. How true that is! Gigi has given me some horrible gifts! Some very poopy gifts, pun very much intended. Then thinking about poop diaper type gifts, got me thinking about colds. Yes, anyone that has ever "gifted" me their germs/colds... Horrible, horrible gifts! 

Then I took it a bit further, and realized that my Dad gifted me his temper, another horrible gift. My mom gifted me OCD, definitely a horrible gift. My mom gifted me her feet. Now, she may argue this, but a horrible gift. I wish I had dainty little girly feet. Nope. Big, solid feet. 

What about you, what is the worst gift you have ever received?! What is the best one?! What is the worst gift that you have ever given someone?!

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts. Go and find out what subjects my friends tackled this month! See you there:

  1. Love how you wrote this!!!!

    oh boy, trying to think about the worst gift I ever got and I am at a total blank. I think it may be sweaters or headbands that are NOT ME at all.

  2. I agree with Karen... the worst gifts are the ones that don't get the recipient!

    Some of my favorite gifts I got: a Playmobil ambulance when I was 7, a typewriter when I was 15, I got to drive my Mom's car on the day I got my license, a pearl necklace I got to choose after returning the original piece of jewelry my husband gave me, the positive pregnancy test in January 2008, the baby boy in September 2008,... - looks like I am a lucky girl :-)

    PS: Of course I like to think that I only give nice gifts myself because and try and imagine what the other person likes ;-)

  3. Ha! I got big old sturdy feet from my mom too!

    Worst gift? Not really sure. I don't really like receiving gifts...I appreciate them but prefer to do things or hang out with people than actual items.

    Love how you answered this prompt by the way!

  4. What a great way to interpret the prompt! That's what I love about this challenge the way we think our subjects will be used is never the way it turns out. This was awesome and I also have to agree with Chad because I have twin 1 year old grandchildren and they can stink up a room in no time!

  5. Your list of gifts received certainly surprised me -- great take on the prompt.

  6. Worst gift? A Wal-Mart gift card. Mainly because I never shop there and I feel like anyone who knows me well enough to give me a gift should know me well enough not to give me that gift. My husband bought me a crock pot and a vacuum cleaner as gifts once, but I loved him (and them) so much I promptly forgave him!

  7. A virus that causes cancer. That is the worst gift and I just discovered I have it. NOT happy and it was given to me from my ex. How wonderful of him, right? NOT

  8. Man. I don't even KNOW! I think I'm the same as you - I enjoy every gift, no matter what. Maybe not at first, but eventually. Sometimes the gifts given are all people have to give, which makes them even more special.

    I will admit the "gift" of OCD isn't all that great, but it's not all that bad either - it could be worse. (I do know from experience)

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: http://theblogging911.com/blog
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…

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven 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: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy ofhttp://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
