The Geel - Ketchup With Us #10

My first time "Ketching up" so here goes....

Michele at Old Dog New Tits and Mel at According to Mags post a prompt, pic or video every 1st and 15th of the month.  This is #10, and the prompt is to write about something that you go head to head with every day.  No.  Contest.  That would be The Geel.  

Aaaaaand, you have to write it in 57 words or less. LOVE it!  (I proclaim myself a minimalist at heart--The Sarge would laugh at that one.)  Anyway, here's mine:

Every day:  head to head,

As soon as this girl is out of bed.

Clever and funny; my pride and joy.

(Can’t believe I had wanted a boy)

Too smart and ornery, but lucky she’s cute.

Worst thing is, she’s not even 2!

Her-way or the highway, you can’t tell her.

Headstrong and determined.  That’s my girl! 


  1. Ooh! I have one of these, too. And she's the most headstrong human being I've ever met. Including her father ... from whom I sometimes think she directly descends. :)

    Great job. Thanks for linking up. And welcome!

  2. And like you and Michele, I have one of these girls. I tell myself it will serve her well later on, but for now, I just wish she'd do what I say . :)

    Great entry!! Thanks for linking up.

  3. Beautiful! I LOVE it! What a wonderful way to start your writing New Year!
    P.S. I, too, have one of these little gals. What a wonderful way to honor/acknowledge her!

  4. Seems to be an epidemic! Are we finally raising little women who will not be meek/back down/bow under the "masculine regime" and who know what they want and they want it NOW?!?! Or is it just the terrible Toddler Years? I guess it remains to be seen.....
