I’ve fallen off the Bloganuary bandwagon. I’ve been opting out because I’ve found many of the prompts uninspiring. If it’s boring for me to write then I figure it’ll be boring for you to read.
I’ve noticed something else too. Lately, I’ve been having trouble reading the prompts. Let’s call it selective dyslexia, where words are out of order and prompts from different days get combined. Does it matter? Not here. My blog. My rules.
My Bloganuary prompt for today is: What dream makes you strong?
The video below has been making the news in Toronto.
It was taken last Monday when we were in a major snow storm. I talked about it in my post where I wished for Superpowers to blow the snow away. Those of us who’d read the news and seen the weather advisory, stayed at home and off the roads. The weather was so bad that schools, highways and businesses were closed.
However, some people had desperate needs that made them strong enough to brave the elements. What need do you ask? Lunch! Look at this man’s reaction to finding his favorite restaurant closed due to the storm.
I can personally attest to the quality of this Jamaican restaurant Nicey’s Eatery. They have an outstanding selection of island food. Jerk chicken, Ackee & Saltfish, Stewed Peas and the best Curry Goat in the city. It is delicious, authentic Jamaican food.
I can see this man imagining his plate piled high with a hot and spicy stew, with a side of coleslaw and another side of sweet fried plantain, all washed down with a bottle of Ting (grapefruit soda.) Such a meal would be worth struggling through the snow. Such a meal would make anyone strong!
