Today’s post is a writing challenge that I hope you find as much fun to read as it was to write. 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.
I’m using: soup’s on ~ hot dog ~ oh no ~ for real ~yeppers ~ righteous

Once upon an Evil Time, Evil Joy went snowboarding. (And yes, I know I’m obsessed.) She was such a HOT DOG. Always trying to be RIGHTEOUS like the young kids. FOR REAL, she’d be out on the slopes trying to board goofy (the equivalent of skiing backwards), attempting flat 360’s (spinning around), or some other skill not yet mastered.
See ….the first time Evil Joy went snowboarding was right after Dr. Evil returned to work after being off for 5 months. When he tried to kick the bucket and experienced life support and all that jazz. Sensing Evil Joy’s anxiety levels (higher than the tallest building), two amazing friends decided on a fun day out for Evil Joy. Snowboarding. After 4 fun hours on the bunny hill, Awesome Amy, Wonderful Deb and Evil Joy had lunch. And returned to the bunny hill. Where upon Evil Joy said, “I should be wearing my spawn’s wrist guards!” And down she fell…immediately after said statement….and YEPPERS…broke both bones in her wrist. And fractured her elbow.
Later that week, Evil Joy bought a snowboard, refusing to be beaten. And last season, Evil Joy mastered the beginner level snowboarding skills.
Now this year Eldest Spawn is constantly badgering Evil Joy to try a box. And Evil Joy always replies, “OH NO! I’d break my Evil Arse.” Eldest Spawn, in all his RIGHTEOUS indignation, said, “Mom – you can totally do this. FOR REAL. You got it.”
Then on a magical evening, the mystical and nearly impossible to find Date Night, Dr. Evil and Evil Joy went … yes, snowboarding. Together. Without spawn. Dr. Evil was bound and determine to try a box. Evil Joy was bound and determined she was not going to take care of his Evil Arse if he broke it landing on the box versus riding over it. And lo and behold…Dr. Evil did it!! Evil Joy chickened out. Multiple times. Got to the start of the box and darted to the right of it and went around. Multiple times.
At the pace of a snail, Evil Joy went up the ramp. Onto the box. And landed it. RIGHTEOUSly.
And promptly fell on her Evil Arse due to being excited about landing it.
Out of the chalet, the chef magically appeared to yell, “SOUP’S ON! And it’s full of HOT DOGS!” He spoke with RIGHTEOUS strength of one who appears from thin air to make soup containing HOT DOGS.
EJ out – to celebrate my birthday by… you guessed it…SNOWBOARDING!
ps – I have a giveaway going on until tonight on my blog page. You must access it from a computer – won’t work through mobile devices (I’ll work on that for next time!) Throw you hat in! www.facebook.com/eviljoyspeaks
I have no idea how far I’ve fallen in the Top Mommy Blogs, but if you can find it in your HOT DOG of a RIGHTEOUS heart to click on the juggling lady in the upper right there, I’d be very grateful! YEPPERS! And I will be around more in the coming weeks! I KNOW you’ve missed my regular blogging
andddddd…pss – it’s my birthday. Really. Today. January 17th! It’s a day to celebrate! I love my birthday like a biker loves his chaps!
