this moment

{this moment} - Joining Soulemama's Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

i was thinking. i know, i know… who has time for that?? but i was. and what i was thinking was this: that those 5lb. bags of flour they gave us in high school to 'simulate' having a baby perpetuated LIES. no really, it should have been a 15lb. bag of rice. with a small explosive set to explode said bag of rice at random intervals; mostly when you are trying to be on time for something. and you'd have to carry around spare bags and a dustpan and sweep it all up and get it all in a new bag before you got to where you were going. you'd be late. a lot. and you would sleep, fitfully, on rice. it would be in your ears and bra... it would itch. and at the end of the 4 years of high school if you still had at least 14.5lbs. then, maybe then you passed that part of sex ed. maybe. if they didn't randomly give you another 15lb. bag after 2 years.
