30 Days of Writing - #30 - It Could Have Been Worse



Our little 30 day extravaganza of posting a piece a day kind of wore me out. I feel like I've been through the wringer.

But I suppose it could have been worse.

I would have been really pressed, for instance, to partake in a 30 Days of The Wringer exercise.

What about Cheesy Mike's idea for 30 Days of Cats?

Me, I'd have to draw the line at that. Or the feline, I guess.

Or what if we had to write about horses for 30 days? I don't know if I could rein that topic in.

Or movies, or TV shows? I guess I'd have to screen my content before I posted those stories.

Or post pictures of rubenesque models. Ha! Fat chance!

I might see my way clear to write a post about Nicky a day for 30 days. There's lots that's very interesting about her. Like how she doesn't make fun of her family on her blog. Or her stiletto heel collection.

And speaking of Nicky, I'm sure she'd be able to cover 30 Days of Cheese. If she worked it right.

I could do Cheese-Whiz and Cheetos but that's only 2 days. What would I do after that? I don't think I could spread myself out for 30 days.

How about 30 Days of Food. Maybe I could swallow that. I'd be sure to devote one day to how much I hate peas.

Or 30 Days of Dessert. Could I carry off such a confection?

Or 30 Days of Deserts, maybe. But I'm wandering.

How about 30 Days of Hats? I don't know if I could sustain that for 30 days. I'd be afraid of peaking too early.

I know there's one topic I won't be covering off. 30 Days of Sausage.

You see, it really could have been wurst!

And this, thank the Lord is the LAST post in the series 30 Days of Writing hosted by our favourite sadist Nicky at We Work For Cheese. Hop on over and check out her linky thingy and see how the rest of our blogger buddies brought their series to a close.

How about 30 days of nothing? I could do that easy enough.

Hell, I'm already doing it!
Nicky said…
Dufus, I'm getting the distinct impression that you no likee my challenge anymore. Which is too bad because I was going to suggest 30 days of puns.

Thank you for playing along, mon ami. :-)
nonamedufus said…
Wha? Moi? No, not at all. I just have a severe case of writer's cramp is all.


It was a lot of fun Nicky. Thanks for a great time.

Well, thank you Tami.

30 days of cheese is doable.

According to Wikipedia, "There are many types of cheese, with around 500 different varieties recognised by the International Dairy Federation,[1] over 400 identified by Walter and Hargrove, over 500 by Burkhalter, and over 1,000 by Sandine and Elliker.[2]"

Who are Walter, Hargrove, Burkhalter, Sandine and Elliker? They sound like a cheesy law firm.

1000 Days of Cheese? Give me a break.
nonamedufus said…
Yep, I made it. Whew.
Lauren said…
I'll sweeten the deal with some wine.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, well, maybe it might be possible.

That is fantastic and a great final post for this challenge. I'm happy you were in this challenge though as I got to find bloggers such as yourself who I'll enjoy continuing to read!
If I were God... said…
I guess it could have been wurst, but it was still pretty gouda.
Nonamedufus said…
Thanks, PJ. I'm looking forward to following your blog too now that I've discovered it.

It might have been better with cheddar!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…
