SCENT of a Blog

It’s 1:59 PM PDT, Wednesday, October 24, 2012 and I still don’t have an adventure to write about for today’s blog. The old Donna would blow it off until some idea rained out of the shower head, which by the way, is where many of my ideas are spawned.

But no, today the new Donna is washed, clean, and ready to write even though the writing is apparently not ready to be written. However, since the new Donna has committed to writing one new adventure a week, by golly, that’s what she’s going to do!

**ugh, am I rambling? Did I really just say that? Well, I am a child of the sixties—at least that’s my excuse for today**

Blogging has already taught me one thing though, and that is that once I plunk my butt in the chair and begin writing—anything, even jibberish—the ideas begin to flow. Some of them are rubbish, and some are jewels. It’s all in the mining. I’m still not sure which this will be, so thanks for bearing with me.

Ahhhhh—thank the gods—here comes an idea now—I feel it beginning to prick its way to the surface—thoughts are forming, my fingers are flying across the keyboard—          LOOK—It’s a bird? It’s a plane? No! It’s durian! The hedgehog fruit! You thought it was superman didn’t you? I never promised the idea would be an over the top great one, but let’s just see what adventure this takes us on. And you have my permission to bail at any time. I promise to still care about you.

—THE DURIAN—

A fleshy fruit entombed in spikes, 

It sends one running, screaming YIKES!

See why…

What more can I say, but thank you Adrian Andrade for planting the durian seed the other day, otherwise I never would have heard of it, and thank you ALL for forcing me to write today, even if it is only a mountain of mush. Just know that my world has become richer because of you, my reader. So, what’s the worst thing you’ve ever smelled?

    No wonder we all get good ideas in the shower; they spawn in the shower head. I didn’t know that!

    Living in farm country in Quebec there are some pretty bad smells. The worst has to be chicken manure (to say it politely). but I am starting to think that one of the worst smells has to be right outside my office door and that is the smell of teenage boys and their dirty socks and sneakers. There are days when I walk down the school hallway where the grade 10 and 11 boys congregate and you could knock me over with a feather. Not to mention that they try to cover it all by spraying Axe everywhere. It doesn’t do any good!!

  4. This is cleverly done. I have been wanting to try to do a “What goes on in the head of a blogger” before they post but I cannot seem to find a good angle. You’re awesome.
