They say art imitates life. Who said it, I’m not sure but in this case they were right.
Mind of Her Own sparked into life on a rainy Friday night. On Friday’s, I let my three boys have one friend over for the night. Yes, that meant six boys, two dogs, and two cats plus one husband in the house to feed.
My head was pounding as migraines often appear during storms, and it was time to make dinner. I had decided to save money instead of my sanity. The normal thing to do would be to order pizza, a lot of them. Instead, I thought I’d make chicken.
I reached into my pantry for my George Foreman grill that I kept on the top shelf—again lack of thinking on my part! The dog rushed by me chased by one of the six kids and bumped into my leg. For a moment the grill fought my grasp. And that’s when Mind of Her Own became a possibility.
I wondered if it had hit me on the head would I be knocked out.
And what if I came too and didn’t know I was married or I had kids?
From there it became a fun roller coaster ride of writing for me. And I moved the grill to a lower shelf and served pizza on Friday nights.
What’s the first thing you would do, try or wear if you woke up as someone else?
Why haven’t you done those things in your present life?
