Surprisingly, Katie had been blissfully unaware, until that tragic day in April of 1975, that a toddler, a golden retriever, a siamese cat, a tubfull of water, and electricity were not a successful combination for her science fair experiment -- it was, however, the right combination for achieving her 15 minutes of fame.

Surprisingly, was not the word of choice describing Obama's victory, however, surprisingly, life went on.

Surpisingly, although my hair is gray, my body sags, and my face is wrinkled, I still have my sanity.

Surprisingly, his eyes looked at me. He was caught off guard. His life had fallen apart and he had no way of putting it back together for this moment. My simple words were his horrible demise. He was stunned and couldn't respond.

"no." I had told my 20 year old just moments ago; "you can not borrow my car to go to your college party tomorrow night"


p.s. I hope I can join in... or is this a private party?

Tera Rose said...

surprisingly I just realized that the rules to this game were to write only 1 sentence.

Erin said...

Tera Rose, you are quite welcome here! Thanks for joining in.

jON said...

Delirious said...

LOL Jon

Tyler Dawn said...

Tera Rose, lol and welcome

Jon, that is NASTY!

Tyler Dawn said...

Susan, that reminds me of the night out birthmother Stephanie went into labor, there was another woman giving birth and surprisingly, she didn't know she was having twins. You should have heard the doctor yelling down the corridor, "GET BACK IN HERE, OMG THERE'S ANOTHER ONE IN THERE!"

Surprisingly I didn't vomit when I read about fish gut smoothies.

Ruth said...

This is fun!

Surprisingly, I'm really bad with numbers although I'm an Accountant.

Surprisingly, a woman in her forties can clean the house, take care of the yard, work full-time, chase/love/teach/feed/bathe a four year old, all while waiting for the husband to come home from a 48 hour shift; and STILL be in love with him!

Tera Rose said...

surprisingly, I read the comment before me...and don't find that true of this forty year old...

Erin said...

OK, this was totally fun to mix it up a little. I laughed out loud and felt a little ill (thanks Jon).

But I have to say that Tera Rose for "surprisingly I just realized that the rules to this game were to write only 1 sentence" takes the game!

So Tera, you win. I need to send you a blog invite so you can post for your turn. E-mail me at erinword (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll send you the invite. Everybody hang tight until I can get her set up.

Thanks to everyone for being willing to do something different and for your great answers!

Tera Rose said...

Ok, because I work weekends...and worried that setting me up may take a little longer than everyone's patience... you can set up this word for me while we wait.

potboiler: a usually inferior literary or artistic work, produced quickly for the purpose of making money.

If I've done this wrong- tell me so I can pick a new word....

:)

Tera Rose said...

oh, I am looking for the artist, the work, or the thought that first pops into your mind when you think of this word....

Sue said...

Oh, what a cool idea! I just came upon this now - sorta kinda behind. Great idea, guys! Funny answers :) Fishguts smoothie. Yum.

Hi Tera Rose :)
