100 Words or Less About Love

One of the things I’m starting to do a bit more is “meet” other moms and dads who blog. As it’s called social media for a reason, I’m going to start sharing more about that community here.

The blog Dad at the Chalkboard issued a writing challenge this week, to write 100 non-fiction words inspired by a word he supplied. This week was love. Below are my 93 words. Check his blog this week to see what other moms and dads had to say.

I knew love when I rode a bike for the first time.

I knew love when I played baseball and my team made the playoffs.

I knew love when I acted in a school play.

I knew love sitting on the floor of a bookstore, reading while my mother shopped.

I knew love the first time I heard The Replacements and The Smiths.

I knew love when I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark 11 times in the theater.

I got married and had a son.

And realized I didn’t know love until then.

    Love this. Awesome job.

    It’s a shame that older and younger guys not of our generation can truly appreciate the love we have for Indiana Jones.

    You like The Replacements and The Smiths. You win at life. Well done, sir.

    Really, really terrific. If it weren’t for this thick outer shell I might have shed a tear.

    Thanks for the read. My love for that movie is practically boundless. I don’t know that I’ll be able to instill it into Jack in quite the same way.

    I’m glad your lack of tear ducts didn’t prevent you from enjoying.

    Thanks for the read, Lance. Looking forward to the day when Jack tells me that my musical taste is terrible. (Although he does seem to like Ask Me quite a bit…)
