I just discovered this fantastic blog: The One Minute Writer. It gives daily prompts from which you are encouraged to take just 60 seconds to write about. What a fabulous idea! Anyone can do that!
Today's prompt is: Jeopardy!
If you were on the game show Jeopardy!, what interesting story would you tell to introduce yourself?
Wow, that is actually a tough one... you probably would want something witty, interesting, and at least a little entertaining to get chuckle out of the audience, but also something that would clue them in as to the kind of person you are. So what could I say?
Have a thing for shoes and own over 120 pairs?
Designed my own tatoo?
Won first place in the science fair in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade?
Am an amateur photographer and I once staged a photo with old cars to make it look like it was taken in the 60's?
I read a lot of other people's posts about this and they mention anything from their very young childhood, to giving birth, to silly stories at any age, to a serious description of their personality. I really have no idea what I would say... so far I think my last idea is the best (that one actually is interesting if you know the whole story) but if I actually was going to appear on Jeopardy I think I'd have to call my Mom, my closest friends, and confer with my husband before deciding on what story to tell. If I ever make it to Jeopardy, I'll let you know. :)
P.S. That was way longer than 60 seconds!
