I have tasked myself with writing more, and I think writing about anything and everything will help inspire me for my stories.
I wasn't sure what to write but then I came across a blog about 365 questions, I am guessing this is one a day for a year starting on January 1st but I am going against the grain and starting it today. This list was done way back in 2011 would you believe, and I am not going to tackle them in numeric order, but hop about a bit. I am also going to include some random fun questions that i have scooped up around the webiverse.
The questions I found are quite varied and hopefully will help me get to know you all a little better, as I would love for you to put your response to the question in the comments.
So today's question (is the first question on the list)...
Hmmm, this is a good question. I like to try new things even if its just to learn that I don't like them. My mind instantly goes to learning something new, but this could be clothing out of your comfort zone or even interesting foods.
This is tricky! I am thinking I definitely need to try new things...oh yes! let me set the scene for you...
It was a cold and chilly evening when I arrived home. My hands frozen, my nose all but falling off, when I stepped into my mothers house and was met with the most amazing smell....mmmm...wafting its way across the kitchen to my nostrils delight as my nasal hair grabbed at the air molecules as if half starved.
It was one of my childhood favourites, a real home comfort dish, and definitely a winter delight.
Mince and Mash.
I couldn't wait to eat it, I really couldn't...and then...as i looked at the plate...my joy began to fade..their on the plate hidden among the mince and gravy were 'GARDEN PEAS' and...yes...SWEETCORN!!
As a child, garden peas used to make me gag, my skin would pimple and i'd imagine I was being poisoned by the green garden peas (which were referred to as poppy peas - due to looking as if they had popped). Sweetcorn I will NEVER, okay so that seems extreme but.. I WILL NEVER eat sweetcorn, we have a hate-hate relationship and those were immediately evicted from my plate.
The peas however, were just eyed with suspicion, I took a bite and one had hidden in amongst the potato, I swallowed...I paused...I waited for that familiar feeling of 'Bleugh'...and it never happened. I ate a pea. In actual fact, I ate all the peas. The flavour was inoffensive although I wouldn't eat them on their own, but I did it...I tried something new...well...it was new enough, don't you think?
When was the last time you tried something new?
