#BlogFlash2012: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts: #20 – Sports

This month Mr B and I are taking part in #BlogFlash2012, run by Terri Giuliano Long, and – every Friday – #FlashFiveFriday at The Indie Exchange.

The idea behind #BlogFlash2012 is simple: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts. Every day there’s a new visual prompt and you have to produce 50-100 words on the theme. The beauty of it is, you can produce anything from a simple anecdote to a piece of flash fiction.

There’s also a Facebook page so you can follow along and swap links.

I am also taking part in NaBloPoMo August.


#BlogFlash2012: #20 Sports


I remember waiting to be picked for one of the school football teams. I was one of the last to be chosen and preferred as a goalkeeper, the scapegoat for whenever our team lost which, with me in goal, was often!

It wasn’t all bad though. When it came to running I could compete with the best of them. 100m and 200m races were my specialties and I have fond memories of winning the odd race. Of course, my opponents put it down to me having long legs and striding rather than proper running!

What is the best thing you ever had for dessert?

I used to visit a pub that did an amazing caramel apple crumble with a toffee sauce. It was absolutely delicious. Sadly, the quality of the food and service started to deteriorate (change in management) and we stopped going but I do miss that dessert!
