I’m going to start a new daily challenge. Something a little different and unique. Each day, I’ll follow the prompts in order and post my responses. When I saw some of the prompts, I laughed to myself and thought about what fun I could have with them! I’ve done a lot of insightful writing, but haven’t tried something “just for fun” So, here we go!
day 1. A letter to an inanimate object you hate.
I’m getting frustrated with you and your finicky ways. Some days, you leave my skin feeling soft and unscathed and others, when you’re feeling a little murderous, leave my legs a bloody mess after ripping out every hair on your way by. Perhaps you could find a therapist for your split personalities because I just can’t stand you switching on and off from psycho razor to silky smooth razor.
The other day, I needed to wear shorts and you knew this as I had discussed it with you before I even let you touch my skin. Everything started out fantastically until you went ballistic and put a centimeter long gash in my knee. Was that really necessary? Just because you don’t have knees doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be pleasant to someone who does. This makes me frustrated with you and I’m very close to banning you from the shower and recruiting Nair instead.
Now, when you stare at me from your shelf in the shower, I ponder whether or not I really need to go hairless because I just can’t trust you. Trust is important in a relationship and I’m hoping that we can regain that if you’re willing to cooperate. Summer is approaching and I don’t like to wear pants on a hot day, so let’s put our differences aside and be friends again, ok? I think you and I both could get a lot of this relationship if you just try.
