Expector's Writing Challenge : Except, besides (Bite the bullet)

When I was small, I always enjoyed going out with my father except for the visits to the dentist. Besides the pain of the needles, I had to endure the horrible sound of the drill. Apart from this, I hated the way my dentist worked inside my mouth with his…

I'd say ''Thanks'' You?

You’re doing no one any favors when you say “sorry” whenever you do something wrong, unless you’re Canadian. Most people mutter ''sorry'' when they mess something up and of those people who think that by saying ''sorry'' they'd be off the hook, there are some smart a** guys who make up a lame excuse for what they've done. Oooooh! That really ''grinds my gears''. How about showing a little bit of appreciation? People have no idea how many doors a simple ''thank you'' would open. Let…

Meanwhile in a parellel universe...

The illustrations are self-explanatory in this blog entry. I have nothing to say except that I'm psychologically disturbed. I betcha can relate to some of these pics. However, the vice versa situation seems pretty normal, though, huh? Makes you wonder.

BRUCE, BRUSKE, BRUSCHETTA

Let's face it, most of us mispronounce food words in our everyday conversations. I see you're raising an eyebrow. What? You don't believe me? Okay. Fine. Take ''raspberry'', for instance. There's a pesky ''p'' in the middle of this word. Is it silent? Or maybe you should pronounce it, no matter how hard it is. Nobody likes an "I told you so". But, told ya! 

Have no fear, cavalry is here. This is how it's done, folks:…

The Dancing Girl!

They both were the attraction of the entertainment at the beach.  No sooner the couple appeared on the beach than the boy started playing on his mandolin, the spectators started gathering around them in the circle and when the girl started to dance the crowd got thicker and thicker.  All the crowd tried to get closer to the circle except…

The Blind and the Braille Bricks

There are three levels of pain; pain, excruciating pain and stepping on a LEGO. Seriously, I'm not being a drama queen. Those who have experienced this unfathomable and torture-like pain know what I mean. Now, the good news: The Braille Bricks project, co-founded by the Dorina Nowill Foundation For The Blind, helps blind children learn to read in a less tedious way. These bricks are completely similar to regular LEGOSs, however, for the benefit of the blind children, each block…
