F is for still Figuring it out

F is for still Figuring it out

When I was trying to think about what I was going to write for “F” day, my mind was blank except for “Fun” and another word I don't think I'll mention here that rhymes with duck. Although, I do remember asking one of my older sister's friends what the unmentionable word meant and why it was bad to say. However, I didn't think that was a subject I wanted to go into here. “Fun” was such a broad topic, I couldn't seem to narrow that down enough to write a cohesive post about it.

Next I called in my son and asked if he would brainstorm with me a little. He was full of ideas for the letter “F”. However my mistake was starting the conversation before I had something to write with. Here's some of the things I managed to write down that he suggested.

Fireworks: good. I have some decent pictures I took of them last summer. I could use the story about my 18 month old nephew saying, “Bubbles boom.” when he saw them. Maybe.

Fried food: that always tastes good, but don't know if I can expand it into a new post unless I cook something with a recipe. Not gonna happen in time.

Friends: maybe, use the standard theme of new friends in blog land

Firsts: a possibility but the topic is so broad I'm drawing a blank

Forgetting and do a corollary post for “R” on remembering: Got plenty of forgetting examples for this

Fans—I could tell about the fights with my sister over the fan in the room we shared. Don't know if she would like that because I, of course, would be the one who came out looking good.

Furniture: I got nothing

Formaldehyde and dissecting stories: I could tell about the biology teacher who would take a snake out of formaldehyde and throw it at us to make us not afraid of snakes. Not sure that worked.

Fungus: why does fungus sound gross while mushrooms sounds gourmet

Flatscreen TV: I got nothing
.
Floors: already posted about our new floors

Fiber: not sure that's where I want to go here

Fluorescent lights: maybe. I have a few opinions about them.

So there you have it. My undeveloped ideas for "F". When I showed a draft of this post to my son, he said that it was awfully early in the alphabet to do a post like this and maybe I could do one about Fingerprints. Well, it's time to move onto the next letter, so I have to go with what I've got. If I'm really lucky, I'll have another “brainstorming” session with him, and convince him that he needs to write the next post. :)

  1. Hahaha! Good job! When I tried to think of an F just now all I could think was Fancy and Figs, neither of which are remarkable to use.

    1. Maybe there's a brand of Fancy Figs you could post about.

  2. Too funny. In Michigan, there's a locally famous town called Frankenmuth which prides itself on its German heritage. I would probably write about that.

    1. I just looked up Frankenmuth and it sounds like a charming little town with a lot going on. Do you visit there much?

  3. If this is what you come up with for F I can't wait to see your posts on letters such as X. :-) Kids and fireworks are hilarious, every child explains them in a different way, bubbles popping is a new one to me.

    1. Yes, I think it was covered well enough to move onto G.

  7. You sound like me. The longer the challenge goes on the more I dig for ideas. I bug all my peeps...give me some stuff for F!! They think I am insane.

    1. I haven't branched out beyond my family, but I should put my friends on alert that they may have to come up with some ideas.

    1. It was pretty creative using only the words he knew to describe something. As an adult, he's still pretty creative with words.
