This is my own A-to-Z Challenge for the month of June — likes and dislikes. I’ve fallen behind but haven’t given up! If you want to join me, just add a comment naming something you like and something you don’t like that begin with the letter J.
Also, I know this is Sunday night, but I’m going to try to incorporate Linda Hill’s (actually, this week Dan Antion’s) Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday which was “cent/scent/sent.”
Stream of Consciousness writing is supposed to be no editing and minimal planning. Trust me — I have not planned this. Life has been too busy.
“I should be able to crank this out,” I said to Mary as I headed in my room to write.
“You can do it,” she said — always my best cheerleader.
“It’ll be crap, but it will be done,” I said.
I forget what she said next.
Stream of Consciousness —- blah — I can’t even remember what was said to me five minutes ago.
Jasmine is a scent that begins with J. Do I like it? Do I not like it? I don’t know. I’m not sure I would recognize jasmine.
I like lavender. Does that count for anything? My friend Leah once sent me a bunch of lavender scented stuff. Here’s the problem, though. Lavender begins with L, not J.
I like my job, and that begins with J. The other day, the cash drawer was off by a cent — a single penny. Problems like that are so easy to solve. We have a little stash of coins to fix those problems.
I like the bigger problems too — figuring out to help members, guests, and even other staff. One of my co-workers is a “not my job” kind of person and I feel like she misses out on so much because of that attitude.
I don’t like junk. I bought a cheap lavender scented candle at TJ Maxx because I like lavender (see above). It was junk. I could hardly smell the scent.
I hate the junk mail that is sent to me.
I have spent waaaay too many cents on junk and thus learned the hard way that it’s better to buy quality.
Sorry for the crap post — but it’s done. And I used ALL the words so I should get lots of bonus point.
How about you? What’s something you like that begins with J? What’s something you don’t like?
