Heya Toads! Its me Herotomost making the mad dash to pull together a Friday challenge that is worthy of your poetry prowess....you have no idea how hard that is with the amazing talent that we have here right in our own garden.
The other day I was thinking (that's where it all starts to unravel as you well know) about the relationships that we have to one another in this vast and sometimes crowded place we call the internet. I think of you all as my good friends or at least awesome acquaintances even though the only way I know you is via small profile pics (and some of those aren't really you), your written words or the little bit of personal information you divulge in our occasional or in some cases, more than occasional online conversations of blog perusals. I have, in my own head, and from this intermittent information, deduced a picture of what you might be like and who you might be (a super lovely bunch I have to say). Sooo...this is a little experiment aimed at seeing just what you might think about who I am or what I am about. You may say to yourself...
"Well......Mr. Herotomost, that seems a little like you are fishing for compliments or something of that nature and I am not looking to make your head any larger than it already is."
That my dear toads, is not the point. Its more of a social psychological writing experiment to see how empathic we all might be with such a small amount of personal information. The challenge is to take one or two things you know about me and write honestly about what I would do, how I would be, or what I am like based on the information you know about me. Do it honestly even if you think it may hurt my feelings or may explode my ego to beyond universal proportions. I want to see how close everyone comes in their assessment to what I think and feel about myself, which also may not be an accurate reflection as we well know from things like American Idol tryouts. I will respond to each one with an indication of whether I agree or don't agree and why. It could be dangerous for me, it could be fun, but mostly its something different, which is what I strive for. Make me cry, laugh, curse, whatever the case may be. For those of you that don't really know me at all, feel free to go to my Blog Mexican Radio or Facebook page (Corey Rowley) and have a look around and blow me away with your psychic skills.
If this challenge makes you feel queasy or nervous at all, please skip it and I will catch you the next time around, or just write me something new of your choice and post if for the world to see. As always, this can be poetry, prose, novel, recipe, calendar entry...I am not picky, except I need you to follow a 2324459877678765 syllable pattern...Psych!!!!!! Just kidding, no particular format.
I now leave it in your capable hands and brace myself for the ugly truth. I love you all and wish all for you an extremely happy and healthy weekend.
