I love creating stories and have been doing it for most of my life. To learn more about me and my writing, please visit judesplace.com.
The Heart Lottery
I’d been dreading this day my whole life. Well, at least once I was old enough to be told what would happen the 16th year on the date of my birth. I can’t remember exactly how old I was, but it was somewhere between six and seven. My mother made it seem almost like a fairy tale. It wasn’t until I got older that I discovered the grim reality of it all.
Creating Something from Nothing
I've always liked creating something from nothing. Maybe that's why I enjoy writing so much. I start with a blank screen and then start typing. I have crates of all my hobbies, and they range from sewing all the way up to working with wood. I have sewn formal dresses for myself and friends, put together terra cotta pots in the shape of a horse for the yard and even created a wood deck for my above ground pool following a set of plans I bought online.
Tequila To Kill Ya
What was my most cringe worthy moment? I was finally 21 and old enough to go to the clubs, finally old enough to drink liquor. I went with my best friend to our favorite club, where we could get drunk and dance all night long. Back then you could get drinking specials, and the one we liked to get at this particular place was $8 at the door would allow us to drink free from 8 pm until 10 pm.
Have you ever been on a first date with someone and ran out of things to say? Luckily, he chose a karaoke bar, so the horrible singing is a useful distraction, but I am wracking my brain trying to come up with something else to talk about. We have nothing in common. He’s outdoorsy, and I like staying in. He’s a wine drinker, and I prefer beer. He likes sushi, and I hate seafood (even if it’s cooked).
Avoid Sponsored Ads on Facebook
Have you ever searched for something on Google and then visited Facebook (FB) and was surprised to see ads targeting what you just searched? I'm sure you have, since it happens to me all the time.
“$20,000 for the rest of the night.” At first I didn’t react thinking the man couldn’t possibly be talking about me. I was lucky to get $50 from any of the perverts who sought out my company for a quick fuck, or a blow job for far less. Curiosity finally got the better of me as I turned to see who he was speaking to. My gaze swept over the two other whores standing beside me on the street corner, but they were both gazing at me in surprise.
Ten Game Playing Monopoly Myths Not in the Offical Rules
Most everyone has certainly played the game Monopoly, though many might never have actually read the rules. I know a lot of families create their own house rules, so kids grow up thinking that is how the game is played. Here are some well-known myths that many of you might think are actual rules, but they are not.
Quicksilver From X-Men and Marvel (MCU) is the Same Character?
When Quicksilver made an appearance on the 6th episode of WandaVision, I was pleasantly surprised. I immediately recognized him from the X-Men movies and knew he wasn’t the same actor as from Avengers: The Age of Ultron. I've really enjoyed all the few scenes he's been given in the X-men movies. He's fast, uses his ability in a humorous way, and has some of the best slow-motion sequences ever filmed. I always looked forward to his scene stealing moments, and they are always the highlight of the movie for me. I didn't realize until today that he is supposed to be the same character from Marvel. He's Wanda's brother?
