Use Your Words, November 17th, 2018: Sluts Don't Exist But Assholes Do

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.

It was submitted by:  thank you Jenniy! 
Here's the thing with me hiking, I would most literally stumble upon a village. No matter the miles I have put on the trail once in a while my sure footing is not so sure and betrays me and I end up bruised in all the oddest places as my body meets the ground at a quicker pace than I ever intended...
It felt like I was in dream when my face collided with the earth, yet....once again, and I cursed myself wondering what was going to be bruised on my body this time. I was not exactly sure what I even tripped over, there was no exposed roo…

What We Need to Know When It Gets Bad: Kindness Keeps Us Here

Hey Rodrigo....where did we go?

That was how I sang Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl for years until my mom was listening to me one day and began laughing hysterically. "Those aren't the words", she choked out, "Who is Rodrigo??" she teased. I stared at her CERTAIN that those were the lyrics because...that is what I was used to singing. A quick check on the almighty Google showed that I was definitely wrong... "Hey, where did we go...." was the correct words to croon after all. 

It is funny how we believe certain things we have heard time and time again and accept it as truth without delving into it. 

Charles Darwin is most notably known for saying that the continuation of our species will depend on how "fit" a person is. Though he is attributed to saying that....Mr. Herbert Spencer was the the originator of that thought process. Today we think of 'survival of the fittest' as those who are in tip top physical shape and well-being. Phy…
