A to Z Challenge: Reflections

My Favorite Posts:  C, P, W, and Y.  Only W is my own material, which is a bit concerning.

My Worst Posts:  E, F, L, N, and X.  Too much navel gazing.  Attempts at minimalist poetry that didn't quite work.  My humor amuses me more than others.

A to Z Blogs to Visit:

What I liked:  The combination of structure and looseness: I've done A to Z type stuff before, but it's been more narrowly focused.  I found some blogs to follow.  About three weeks in, I learned how to pre-schedule posts.

What I Didn't Like:  Various issues related to commenting on other people's blogs.  People feeling socially obligated to comment on my blog.  My own mediocrity.  Feeling like I had to censor myself a few times.

Random Notes:  My attempts at humor fell a bit flat.  My writing didn't seem to go over very well.  Most of my attention seemed like it was due to people feeling socially obligated.     

If I'm still blogging in 2017, I will probably do it again. Maybe with a theme.

Beverage Day

I have known many beverages over the years.  Here are a few:

In my youth, I could get milk for free, from my parents' fridge.  Calcium, vitamins, etc.  The key word is free.

In my teen-age years, I discovered this beauty.  The sizes and containers may vary, but the soda remains the same.

Beer: The sports bar beverage.

Kahlua: My holiday beverage.  Gracias, Mexico.

Iced coffee - no lid.  The plant is just photo bombing.
