NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Today, I want you to try to write a “social media”-style poem. Namecheck all of your friends. Quote from their texts, tweets, FB status updates, twitter accounts, and blogposts, and the back of the cereal box on your breakfast table. The poem is about you and you are about what you say, think, talk, eat. You might end up with a poem that seems bizarrely solipsistic (like the internet itself, maybe?), but there might also be a spark there of something live and fun and present (like the verbal equivalent of a really great animated cat .gif).

This is taken from the list of materials needed for the next unit in eighth grade science parents were given in an email yesterday. While I was piecing the list into a Fibonacci poem, Rachael texted me. Honor Society induction is Thursday April 23rd. 😀 April will be going out with a full schedule. That Thursday is also Gretchen’s next orthodontic appointment. Then over the weekend Rachael will have volunteer hours to fulfill. One plus to Gretchen attending public high school, no mandatory volunteer hours.  Well Rachael will be home soon because one of her college classes was cancelled for the day. Speaking of she walked through the door as I typed this.
