Were They On a Break?

Hey kids... Sorry for posting a rerun. This was a post I originally wrote back in February of 2015. But since most of you weren't following me way back when, maybe this will be new to you. I've updated a few things here and there, but I just don't have it in me to come … Continue reading Were They On a Break?

Question of the Week #266

If you knew it would completely estrange you from your friends and family, would you follow your heart and marry a person you loved? Yes. I mean... if friends and family are rightly warning me that the person I love is also secretly a super-villain bent on global destruction and/or domination, I would hope I … Continue reading Question of the Week #266

Red

This week, our Sunday Scribblings prompt is Red. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things!

Question of the Week #202

Would you be willing to commit perjury for a close friend? For example, might you testify that he was driving carefully when he hit a pedestrian even though he had been joking around and not paying attention? No. And I'm sure that would lose me some friendships if I were put into that position. I'm … Continue reading Question of the Week #202

Movie Nights

Back in my Bluefield College days, specifically during my sophomore year, my roommates and I played host to a weekly movie night. Typically, these would happen sometime on Wednesday evenings, after the Baptist Student Union's weekly Bible study/worship time that we called GAP (Growth And Praise). Looking back, I'm not sure how these movie nights … Continue reading Movie Nights

Question of the Week #196

You have arranged an evening with a friend, but on the day preceding your date a special opportunity arises to do something much more exciting. How would you handle the situation? Knowing myself the way I do... I'd probably do neither. At least, I'd want to do neither. Being social? Doing exciting things? That doesn't sound … Continue reading Question of the Week #196

When Bloggers Meet

I've been blogging off and on (mostly on) since 2005. No, it hasn't all been here on The Confusing Middle or hosted by the good people at the WordPress. My first decade in the world of blogging involved a blog titled Carp Dime and was hosted over at Blogger. I'm pretty sure Carp Dime is … Continue reading When Bloggers Meet

Question of the Week #195

Of all the people close to you, whose death would you find most disturbing? I really hope it's not a cop out to say my mother. Because, at this point, that would probably tear me up the most out of anyone I know, be it friend or family. She's the only parent I have left. … Continue reading Question of the Week #195

Question of the Week #192

When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching--for example, hugging, kissing, roughhousing, or rubbing backs? Would you like to have more of this? No. And no. At least... not as far as I'm concerned. I very much enjoy my personal space. I get uncomfortable when there are crowds full of people … Continue reading Question of the Week #192
