In a Word

Every month I receive an email from a blog posting idea boosting site.  I rarely if ever think about using the ideas given to me.  I don’t disregard the suggestions because I think they are invaluable, but I do think I will have difficulty sticking to a theme for an entire month.  March’s theme is “In a word.”  I didn’t read the description of the theme, so I will make up my own.  Also, I will not stick to this for the month maybe even past today.

In a word, to me, will mean having a word of the day.  I remember watching Pee-Wee’s Playhouse as a kid and he would always have the word of the day.   If it was mentioned by one of the playhouse gang, I would of course, scream along with the characters.   One time, I spent a Friday night at my friend’s house.  We sat on the carpet of her family room with her brothers and sisters the next morning with a bowl of cereal and watched Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.  When the word of the day was said, naturally, I screamed, “AHHHHHHHH!”  along with everybody else in Playhouse land.  In real life land, they looked at me as I was crazy.  Apparently not all children took Pee-Wee’s instructions to heart.

Anyhow, today’s word is:  Friend.

I haven’t lived in one place very long at any point of my life.  This has resulted in tons of acquaintances and very few life long friends.  I think of the latter as those people who you can see after many months or years and continue on in conversation as though not a day has passed.  I like those people.

You don’t have to scream if you hear the word friend today.  But if you do, I will high five you.
