Dough is Better than “D’oh!” (Weekly Writing Challenge)

No really. You should use the Weekly Writing Challenge.  Do it!  Or don’t.

“Nothing can bring peace but yourself.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

———-

Work was vexing Alan. Traffic had been terrifying, as usual. Sleep was not nearly abundant enough. And purring kittens were not allowed at work.

However, no one ever said Alan couldn’t make cookie dough at his desk. His hands and soul found a tranquil peace in the kneading and gnashing.

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a
    nice blog like this one today.

  21. I would never claim to craft my own layouts. It is “The Enterprise Theme”, and if you click on that phrase in the bottom right corner you can snag it for free just like I did!

    Thanks for the kind comments. There are more anecdotes to come. 🙂
