Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
My words are:
mail ~ light ~ processing ~ ready ~ flea market

As you may or may not know, I’ve had a long-standing love affair with Adam Levine. If our relationship were a Facebook status it would read “it’s complicated.” We’ve certainly weathered our fair share of storms over the years. We had some really good times, Adam and I.
Ours was truly a star-crossed love, timing was never really on our side. Fate can be a cruel mistress. I’m still processing our separation these past few years, but it all inevitably comes surging back as “The Voice” airs on television each season. I haven’t really felt ready to face the pain of the distance forced between us by circumstances beyond our control.
I was reminiscing about my twitter campaign for Adam love a few years ago, back when I had twitter followers and was quite active on twitter. He can’t follow me on twitter for obvious reasons, you know the whole secret part of our epic love story, but I thought what better way to throw the paparazzi off the scent than to pretend I was desperate for Adam to follow me on twitter, so I launched the “follow me Adam” campaign. I had the majority of my followers tweeting Adam
begging politely requesting that Adam should definitely follow me on Twitter. He’d pick random normal every day people to follow from time to time and while there was nothing ordinary or every day about our love, he could have pretended and followed me back. He’s overly cautious my Adam, and didn’t want to throw a giant spotlight on our romance, so alas I have to report that he never did follow me on twitter (sad emoji).
Sometimes I think perhaps I should mail in my singing demo to “The Voice,” just to get on the show so I can see him again. Not that I can sing. At all. But I mean this is my fantasy so obviously I would get on the show. I’d be wearing some cute vintage 80’s outfit I picked up at a flea market outside of town. I’d even krimp my hair (is that back yet?) I’d be some hybrid Cyndi Lauper/Madonna type performer. Obviously, he’d recognize me instantly. The shock of seeing me again turning his hair blonde…(not a good look). I’d get a four chair turn where I’d pretend to be giddy about Blake and those dimples, but really I’d only have eyes for Adam. And he wouldn’t be able to look away (obviously). We’d have a moment. A lingering full body hug. He’d whisper secret things in my ear. I can’t tell you! It’s a secret. I’d feel all warm, fuzzy and validated. It would be just like old times.
(Adam, if you’re reading this and why wouldn’t you be (duh!), you can follow me on Instagram. I won’t tell…hardly anyone. Much. Ish. I promise (fingers crossed). You really should. You know you want to. Why deny yourself life’s little pleasures? Doooooo eeeeeeet. <3)
Thanks for indulging me on this walk down memory lane. I’ll leave you with these pics of our children, or what our children would have looked like rather had we had them together. Assuming of course we didn’t have a love child or two. Or did we? Stay vigilant, you never know…
