Overcoming Bloglessness

Daily Prompt: RSVP


Sometimes we party just because we have decorations!

Daily Prompt: RSVP.

Plan the ultimate celebration for the person you’re closest to, and tell us about it. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?  Photographers, artists, poets: show us CELEBRATION.

The Old Gang

Mark doesn’t care for people or parties or going anywhere.   His ultimate party is a one-man party in his recliner with a beer and big-screen.

But I’m planning this shindig.

I’ll invite the party gang from the mushball days, the camp-out days, the wild and crazy days.
Andy and Chris, Rick and Jan, Big Mark, the Fields brothers, Carol and Allen; it’ll be just like the old days. Only older.

It’ll be a multi-generational affair;  our kids knew their kids and would love to see who they grew up to be.

It will be a surprise party.  A smokin’, bar-b-que, bonfire party.  A loud music, hot summer night party.  With Daily Prompt footing the bill, we could have caterers and live music, but we don’t need all that.  We party old school.

He’ll be flabbergasted that everyone made the twelve hour drive.  And, since they all came so far, it will have to be a two day party, maybe three.   We’ll cook a big breakfast in the morning, then we’ll split up into groups of sight-seers, shoppers, rafters, fishers,  hikers and horse-back riders.   In the evening we’ll gather again around the fire to share our adventures, our memories and stories.

It’s going to be a blast.  It’s going to be the best party we ever had.  He’ll be glad to see everyone.

He’ll be really glad, when it’s all over.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  3. I really liked this. That’s my kind of party. I would have loved to be invited.

    • Thanks! I almost wrote the very same thing again. This time I’d have some live music; The Rolling Stones, Harry Connick Jr. and Chris Isaak (so I can decide who’s the dreamiest). I’ll invite Ellen DeGeneres too and you and…
