The Flip Side

As I mentioned last night, after I rudely posted a link to one of my old blog posts in a comment on Art’s blog, Pouring My Art Out, I started chatting with my blogging buddy Trend, of about that piece.  I told him that in an exercise for my memoir writing class, I had to write the same story from two different points of view.  The link I posted was to the first version of that story.  Trend and I figured it would be fun for me to post both pieces.

Here is Part 1.

This is Part 2, The Flip Side

  1. Those judges, they were likely sitting over their suds and spuds wondering how to pass you in. They loved you but couldn’t find the right words. I think you got it all wrong.

  2. This is so brilliant… because in my head, I play every moment of my life over and over from so many points of view… of course, I am a little crazy… so… uh…

  3. I bet now you always exit a broom closet kicking and singing “One!”


  4. I don’t like these judges, they’re mean!

    • They were! They should have taken me on as a student ANYWAY! Sigh.

      But I think they weren’t that mean. They didn’t laugh at me until I left the room, so that’s something!


      • If I had been one of the judges, I would’ve put you through. When something’s that memorable, you gotta do something with it.

        • In truth, I wouldn’t have been able to go if I HAD gotten in. My health issues, that had started a year or two before this, really went nuts at the end of my senior year. and I had to always fine health insurance. (The NHS wasn’t seen by my doctors as a viable option. And I was a woos. And walked into a closet)

  7. But just look what you gave them to talk about. Probably for years to come!
