Ketchup With Us - #10

Sunday, February 3 - 
Superbowl XLVII

I'm very excited for this weekend's final round of playoffs. I can't wait to see which two teams will be heading to the The Mercedez-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. It just so happens that my home team, the New England Patriots, is one of the teams fighting for the chance to be in the championship. And these battles to the finish got my friend, Michele, and me thinking about WHO and WHAT we are always trying to overcome in our own lives. As we talked about our own personal lists, we got laughing at the one that you'll find I have described below...

I asked so nicely year after year.

Please, put that seat down, Dear?

He obliged with a smile, trying to impress

But after a while, I’d have to re-stress.

Then we had a bouncing baby boy.

Seven years later I’m reliving that joy.

Lazy, manhood, getting lost in a tweet

Whatever it is, PUT DOWN THAT SEAT!

For a quick explanation of this link-up, click here. In short, Michele and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. You can write your entry in any form. We love creativity. And, with each prompt, we'll feature a writer from the previous link-up. Which reminds me...

'KETCHUP WITH US' - Prompt #10

In 57 words or less, tell us about WHO (or WHAT) 
you go head to head with every day.


  1. Mel and Micele, thank you for the opportunity to participate in another Ketchup With Us and for naming me, Featured Writer (gulp!). As I indicated in my post, this added much stress and inhibited almost all creative thought! For, at least, 13 minutes. BTW, where do I pick up the new Corvette?

  2. Hey, she gets a car? :)
    Thanks for hosting and coming up with these creative prompts!

  3. I was very sad that MY TEAM TOO...the NE PATRIOTS lost. BOO.
    but my stepdad loves the 49ers...and he is over the moon happy, so I am rooting for them this year..and looking forward to the chicken wings. ;)

    are you sick of my comments yet?
