As some of you know, on occassion, I tend to drift off topic and do a bit of creative writing. Today was such a day. There is a bit of back story here. My favorite blog in the entire world is entitled ‘Slummy Single Mummy’, and it one of a billion mommy blogs on the internet.
I am single, male, 43, no children. I am not her demographic. Every once in a while I stumble across a gem of a writer, and Jo is such a find. She has a writing style that is incredibly entertaining. Yesterday she asked her daughter’s what she should write about, one of them responded, “Camels” and that was all. Jo did not write about camels and I commented that I felt she should have, and challenged her to do so tomorrow. To my delight, she did!
I decided to have some fun and wrote the same story, though from the point of view of the camel. As I suspected, it was good fun. So if you enjoy my off topic musing, I am sure you will like tonight’s blog.
