This is a conversation about Ben.

“Jesus, what motivates somebody to shoot himself in the head?”
“I suppose some people’s lives just suffer a deficit of meaning.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Exactly.”
“I’m about to shoot myself in the head if you keep that shit up.”

Day 26: "Naked and Lost"
________________________________________
It’s funny to think of how much importance we assign to pants (or trousers, as the English call them). I don’t know if it’s due to societal conditioning, or if it's some deeply rooted instinctual preference, but it’s hard to take a guy seriously when he’s not wearing pants.

Day 25: "Social Media"
________________________________________
I don't have much to say right now about social media, but today's writing prompt has gotten me into an oversharing kind of mood. So today on Prosaic Shades of Gray, I present to you the first ever installment of a little something I'd like to call "TMI Tuesday".

Day 23: "There are things"
________________________________________
There are many things that need to be said. Unfortunately, this February has been an especially busy month for me, and I haven't found much time to sit down and write it all out. I've also neglected to visit my fellow challenge participants' blogs for over a week now, which makes me kind of a jerk.

Day 14: "It has to be aliens"
________________________________________
On September 21, 2013, I married Diana, the love of my life. We had been dating for nearly ten years before we finally got hitched. In all the time that we had been together, Diana constantly begged me to write a "mushy and romantic" blog entry in which I discussed the many ways that I loved her. For one reason or another, I kept refusing, and I never gave in. I came close to honoring her request once, but then I turned it into one big joke.

Day 13: "Incommunicado"
________________________________________
In the offices where I work, there is a motivational poster hung on a wall which has bothered me since the first day I saw it. I wish I had a better picture to offer to you, but the poster is located in an area where I really shouldn't be taking pictures. The best I can do is post this low resolution image that I found online.

30 Minus 2 Days of Writing (2014) Day 12: "One bite"   Kevin's Inner Monologue: I've really let myself go these past few months. I was doing so well last summer with P90X until the wedding happened, and then the honeymoon, and then the holidays, and now this stupid month-long writing challenge in February. Now I'm just soft and lazy again. This is where I draw the line, though. Once February is over and I have more free time, I'm going to get more serious about exercise and fitness. Kevin's Coworker: Hey Kevin, want some cake? Kevin's Inner Monologue: Well, shit.   30 Minus 2 Days of Writing (2014) A painful exercise in forced inspir...
