Daily Prompts: Critical Eye

Write about the subject you usually blog about as if you were a music critic.

I am fond of music, I’ve been interested since I was a little girl. My elders felt I’d be spending all of my time listening and would  fail to pay attention to my studies. As a result I listened I hummed but was unable to do any more.

I do not have requisite qualification to take the role of a music critic. I can only tell if someones voice is good or bad.Then again it’s only my opinion. Among singers who sing English songs, I have a few favorites: Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Celine Dion, Madonna and Lately I’ve come to love Adele the British Singer.

When I first heard this song, I asked my daughter who she was. She’s the type of singer whose songs I would spend hours listening. I have posted it here. I hope you’ll like it as much as I did when I first heard it.

Daily Prompts: B+

Write about what you did last weekend, as though you were a music critic reviewing a new album.

When I think of weekends I think of grocery shopping. My favorite store is Costco, I am a member so I try to take advantage, I buy food items that  are much cheaper than the regular grocery stores,I mean the Supermarkets, if people realized how the supermarkets rob us, more of them would become members. Membership fees is 52 dollars for regular members and 100 dollars for Executive members. One day I realized if I become an executive member I’d have a lot more privileges than a regular member so I changed from regular to executive.

I must be sounding like a person who is trying to promote the privileges of shopping at Costco. It’s nothing like that, I’m thinking loudly of the benefits I get when I shop there.

Last weekend I checked the book I was reading and was kind of discouraged when I noticed I had only read 422 pages out of 1168 pages, I therefore started reading it to hurry up. I entered the challenge to read 25 books, since I started on the fourth day of January 2016, I’ve read one book and am on my second book. I feel discouraged that I haven’t yet finished reading the second book. I still have over 200 pages left.

I was thinking about my brother who talked about fasting in North America from dawn to dusk,we fast for sixteen hours in summer whereas in other countries in Asia almost half of that, what he was trying to say was, we deserve to get credit for two days, I grinned and said, “May be since you feel so strongly about it, you should send a petition to God, because humans cannot do it.”

Likewise I’m trying to mention is, an average length of a book is around 400 pages, mine has 1168 pages, “can I not  get credit for at least two books instead of one?”

But then again other readers will say,I should have picked the books that have an average of 400 pages. I know I’d lose this argument. But I must admit the book has a lot of pages but it’s a grand book. Do you think I deserve B+ when I finish reading it?

Last weekend I also learned some Spanish and Farsi, I think I may get B+ for my effort,”what do you think, yes or may be not? 😦
