#275: At the Writers’ Workshop 

I did not eat a single piece of candy. Boy, that orange was tasty.


This is a special kind of torture. On day 13 of my Whole 30 regimen, as I have sworn off alcohol, grains, beans of any kind, dairy of all sorts, cheese of all stripes, all things artificial, AND sugar, our workshop facilitator today puts a pile of candy in front of me as a writing prompt. I think Hell would be kind of like this: you are faced with and then have to write about all the things that you love, but for some inexplicable reason, cannot have.

#246: A Recipe

A Recipe

Mix together
in a bowl
the following
invisible things:
Ad no alcohol,
zero grains,
absolutely no
sugar, no beans,
no milk, butter,
or cream, and no other
artificial anything.
I have a bad
feeling about this.
Someone in the house
wants to go healthy
and I have agreed
to play along.
The part of me
that knows it’s a
good idea is engaged
with the other part
in an epic match
of mud wrestling.
Let’s see who
comes out on top.
