Ketchup With Us #6

It’s Thanksgiving … and all everyone is talking about is counting their blessings. And taking stock of their lives. And reflecting on what they’re thankful for. Blah … blah … blah. I think I’m gonna puke. Here at ODNT and, we want you to do something a little different.

RANT ABOUT SOMETHING YOU COULD LIVE WITHOUT! Here’s mine. I call it … “My Period.”

Every month, you arrive like clockwork. Except when you don’t.

It’s ALWAYS a bad time for your visit.

In your company, I am fat, I am pained and I am moody.

White is not an option. Especially because there will be chocolate.

And please stop suggesting swimming and horseback riding.

It is NEVER going to happen.

  4. Congrats to all of our winners!

  5. Should have been a second picture with confused store employees looking at you in that outfit!

    On the other hand, it goes perfectly if you have your monthly…issue.

  6. There has to be a story about that photo.” May I see the manager please?” “You’re not going to believe this” C’mon Michele!

  7. So exciting! THat photo is hysterical!

  8. Thank god I didn’t miss it. (Oops, that’s something I’m thankful for) I’ve missed every other goddamned prompt, and I want to respond to those fucking sappyass Thanksgiving posts so much it hurts. I will be joining tomorrow. I jsut have to decide for what I am the least grateful.

    • Come on, JQ. You’re such a passionate person. I would think your greatest trouble would simply be limiting your subject matter down to 57 words. I can’t wait to read your entry! 🙂

  9. It took me a while, but I finally got one.

    Am I doing this right?

    • Awesome! But we want you to use the link-up button above so you’re listed with everybody (like Trifecta) so all can enjoy. I did it for you so you should see yourself there. Yay! Thanks, Gene.
