My Weaknesses ~ Writers’ Workshop

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for Mama Kat’s Writers’ Workshop. Here’s the prompt I chose this week: Ask someone who loves you what one of your weaknesses is. I almost didn’t pick this one because I can come up with a LOOOONG list of my weaknesses all by myself, thank you very much, and don’t really need anyone else to add to it. So, being the glutton for punishment I am, I did a survey. I emailed and texted people I KNEW loved me, and here are the responses.
Michael (my husband): brownie earthquakes and a certain werewolf
Kim (my friend in Atlanta): sweet tea, a good book, the beach, wine, bread, Michael
OK, these two took the question in a different direction that I expected, but they really made me smile.
Dianna (my friend and Bloggy Boot Camp partner): You tend to be a perfectionist. Is this a trick question?
Beverly (fabulous food blogger and aunt): That it too easy. You are too damn nice. You always put others before yourself.
Aren’t they sweet? Although I think Dianna was trying to stay out of trouble and I understood Beverly’s response better once she emailed that she was working with mushroom recipes – I think she got hold of some of the “funny” ones.
Aaron (my eighteen-year-old): Um, you can’t deal with stupid people.
Insightful kid, huh?
And then I asked Jack, my eleven-year-old. He wouldn’t answer right away, said he needed to think about it. He came up to me about 45 minutes later and said, “excruciating pain”. I just looked at him blankly, having totally forgotten what we’d been talking about. He said, “That’s your weakness. All the pain you’ve been having lately.” WOW. Yeah, he got a big hug and unlimited video game time. And I’m going to see a Pain Management doc today at 9:00, so hopefully this weakness is only temporary.
I love you guys!

  1. You are the sweetiest person I know. You will probably become a saint just for tolerating me. I can see it now "St. Angela, protector of people from Witch Beverly. Love You.

    The people around you are sweet. But I love Aaron's answer! Out of the mouth's of babe's huh?!

    Great post.

  3. You are brave to have chosen this prompt. I chickened out and picked the one about compromise instead. You got some interesting answers here though–your sons' answers were the best! This made for an interesting post.

  5. Stopped reading when you said something about The Wolf. I don't interact with people who are team Jacob. So, I'll be back tomorrow when you have, hopefully, seen the evil of your evil ways. Smells like dog over here:)

  6. Oh, no! I'm going to be on Dumb Mom's bad list, too, since I'm Team Jacob as well …..

    And by the way … WHY didn't I think of Aaron's answer? He is so smart!
