Click over to whatever website you visit most frequently to get news. Find the third headline on the page. Make sure that headline is in your post.

It was not easy to find a third headline on a page of the websites I follow. I checked the reader and came up with a line I thought I can use it as a headline, this one is by ‘Jen’.

Miss Dotty was having a hard time teaching her class. For some reason these fourth grade students were extremely hyper that day. When nine year old boys and girls are in a playful mood there is nothing any teacher can do to calm them down.

Miss Dotty was not going to give up, she came up with a new topic of discussion in her mind, “Why don’t I ask them what would they like to be when they grow up?”

As soon as she finished speaking, thirty hands went up, some thought if they raise both their hands, the teacher would notice.

Miss Dotty looked around, there at the back of the class William was frantically waving both hands. Well she thought, it’s quite interesting to see William’s hands up. He never participates in any class discussions, she’s got to find out what’s on his little mind.

Well said Miss Dotty, “what do you want to be when you grow up William?”

William stood right up feeling proud of himself that his teacher picked him first.

Miss he said, “can I tell what I told my mother when she asked me what I want to be when I grow up?”

Sure said Miss Dotty, “go right ahead!”

“I said, he swallowed hard  I said: “Mommy! I want to make Whiskey!”

There was silence for a few moments, then little Harry got courageous, he asked: “Miss what is Whiskey?” 🙂




Writing 101- Prompt-3

Write about three most important songs in your life– what do they mean to you?

I have a lot of songs in my mind and they all mean a lot to me. I sing quietly at times when I am sad, some give me the strength to forget my worries and move on, others make me happy.

To me songs have a unique reaction for me it calms my mind when someone hurts my feelings, I can spend hours listening to songs that are uplifting.

Here is one that I love,: Thank you Allah!

I am ready to commit to a writing practice, this is my first writing practice:

I woke up at 5am to pray .After spending an hour,I felt sleepy, I told myself I’ll wake up at 7 am but ended up sleeping longer. I got dressed to get ready to go to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. I always have porridge for breakfast, one of these days I’d be so sick of it I’ll never look at it.For now I am religiously eating it.

I came back to my room to turn on my computer hoping someone remembers me and will write a nice email to me, but no luck . I’m writing this twist as they call it for fifteen minutes. I may pick up “Atlas Shrugged ” to read .The part I started reading was very interesting, Dagny is quite the brave woman, going to a little diner, I don’t think I would,then again I’m scared of everything, even when a dog barks I think it will bite me. How foolish you’d say, but I have my reason,I was chased by a bunch of dogs when I was six, only because I was carrying a little note for my sister’s friend.

What can I say about my big sister she is such a bully, if you don’t listen to her she’d scream your ears off, do I want to hear her scream, no would you, her voice is so shrill. I tell you she’s no Julie Andrews , the hills won’t come alive when she sings, they’ll disappear.

She used to tell me I’ll never be anything because I did not spend my time with a book like she did.Now that i think about it I bet she did not study all thjose times she had a book in front of her. I know she did not want to do any chores around the house, so Mom thought her sweet old daughter is so studious.

Mom thought Ranu never looks at a book, she’s the one who should do all the chores, she won’t be as learned as the big daughter. Guess what I proved her wrong, I got as many degrees as she did, not only that, I have one more.
