Fun Inspirations 2

Motivation, RESOURCES-TIPS

When you find yourself deep in the grip of writer’s block, sometimes it helps you kick back and relax.  Enjoy these fun inspirations.

I cannot look at the world seriously. For me, there is inspiration in humor, and the funny things that happen to me along life’s path. I am a muse in training, or at the very least, I have been put upon this earth to be God’s comic relief. The only sound I could hear after getting hit by a train while horseback riding was a deep, haunting laughter. Surely it couldn’t be the fact that I, literally, had ants in my pants  (split my pants open on a red anthill – insult to injury). I know, as long as I can laugh at myself, life is worth living and writing about. I hope you enjoy these items and that they inspire and encourage you. 

I hope when you are struggling, you can read these and find some relief.

You Just Thought You Were Having a Bad Day

http://www.home-schooling-uk.com/

A father passing by his son’s bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed: “Dad,”

With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and, with trembling hands, read the letter…

“Dear, Dad. It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you.  I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid scene with Mum  and you.  I’ve been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am.

But it’s not only the passion, Dad. She’s pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, andhas a stack of firewood for the whole winter.  We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.

In the meantime, we’ll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!

Don’t worry Dad, I’m 15, and I know how to take care of myself.  Someday, I’m sure we’ll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren.

Love, your son, Joshua

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Jason’s house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that’s on the kitchen table.

If anyone knows who originated any of the above items, please email me (contests@writingcorner.com) so I can give them credit.
