Ok, so Kevin missed this prompt so I'll throw in a filler blog entry until he replaces it with his far superior writing style. This older prompt is "Favorite Winter Comfort Food". I feel this prompt is fairly easy for me compared to Kevin given my pickiness when it comes to food. I like about 5% of the world's food, so my options are pretty limited on a "favorite" food.

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".
