Mad Lib

Dear Flounder,

You remember the prequel to Cards Against Humanity?

Mad Libs

I remember at my elementary school there were book fairs and Scholastic was a regular part of my backpack. I would love picking out books from there and my dad would buy the books for me. One of the things I picked from the Scholastic flier was Mad Libs.

It is just good, and wholesome fun. You had come up with the words to fill-in-the-blanks with. The one that caught me was …

‘you will be required to exist a lion with your nose.’

First things first, I immediately thought of Lion from Steven Universe.

Second, I never really regarded exist as a verb until just now. I always use it as a verb. After a second round being an English language assistant and putting my two feet forward to learn a new language, I realize just how little I know about what I consider my native tongue.

What do you think about this mad lib?

P.S. When I was searching for a picture for the featured image for this post (3 fors), a picture came up that said,

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” What do you think?

P.P.S. I am looking forward to your next post. Miss you.


Tag. You’re. It.

Dear Aya,

I enjoyed the mad lib! I was thinking of “Lion” when I chose it, and so it would have to be a pink lion for sure. I agree with the picture, and honestly its true. Sometimes we judge people, I know I have done it, and we lose out of possible friends. Its happened to me more than I have done it, and it is one of the reasons I was so closed off when you first met me. People think “Bipolar” and never experienced it and they judge, now it does not bother me, but it did. Mad Libs are fun and I can’t wait to do mine for tomorrow’s post with you. I never considered its a prequel to Cards Against Humanity!

You wrote, ” I realize just how little I know about what I consider my native tongue.” I am considered a professional writer and I still make mistakes and I am learning new things about my native tongue as well. It is probably why I get so overwhelmed with Korean (BTW I fell behind during Covid practicing so I need to get back this coming week.) As for existing, it is an interesting word because I don’t always feel, even now Aya, that I exist. I don’t know its a strange thing, like I actually died in 2010 and this is a different person (it would make a great novel some day). Anyway I know what you mean about existing.

P.S. I miss you too my friend.
