This was an exercise from my writing group last week, using this prompt: Without knowing about it, today you have been participating in The Ordinary Olympics. What events did you compete in, how were you judged, and how did you do?
My first Olympic event today was the Getting Off My Duff and Out of Bed rotation. The judges felt that my slow response to turning off the alarm was worth a three-point deduction.
My next event was Getting Children Off to School, which I performed fairly well, other than a last-minute scramble in which I gave Max two answers on his homework in order to get it finished in time. Unfortunately, the judges disqualified me from this event, claiming that it was cheating.
My next event was a relay race--to Pilates, back home, to computer, to washer, to dryer, to sink, to shower, to hair dryer, and back to computer. I managed to finish just in time to qualify for tomorrow's competition.
What about you? Take a few minutes and write your own response!
