Red Writing Hood, Take 2

This week's prompt for Red Writing Hood:
One of the my favorite movies is The Brave Little Toaster (oh and this is Ericka by the way). To pay homage to one of my favorites, I thought we'd write a short piece of prose (or a poem if you so choose) from the perspective of a broken inanimate object. It doesn't necessarily have to be a toaster but it should most definitely be inanimate!


Hmmm. I appear to have missed that broken let's call this a broken agreement :)


Also I just wanted to take a second and thank you all for your support yesterday. I've been stressed and tired and needed to vent. It's awesome to know I'm not alone.


If Diary Found Please Return to Nike'

Day 1:
This is going to be SO AWESOME! We're going to spend every single day together. Today was so much fun. We ran and ran and ran.

Day 23:
Every day may have been a stretch. But 6 days a week is still a lot of quality time. Today we rode a bike until I was wind chapped. So much fun.

Day 42:
You know, 5 days a week is plenty of cardio. Tonight's core training class was a blast. Why don't people play Ace of Base more often? Their stuff rocks!!

Day 78:
Hmmm...I'm not sure about these workout videos.

Day 156:
Three times a week is still good...right? Um, also, I'm not sure if this is a good time or not, but the name is ni-KAY not ni-KEE. No big deal. Just a little bit annoying that you can't seem to get it right.

Day 201:
I've been relegated to the back of the closet. Completely forgotten. Alone...I'm so ALONE. My existence is futile. I occasionally throw a shoelace out into the light to remind her I'm still here, but she continues to ignore me.

Day 205:
She knows the dust is bad for my asthma. Does she care? Apparently not.

Day 230:
You know I can see you from down here. And guess what? It's not your best angle. Your ass looks like a ziploc bag full of cottage cheese.

Day 247:

Day 367:
This is going to be SO AWESOME! We're going to spend every single day together. All is forgiven...
