This is a Blogger Crusade Challenge, as presented by Rachael at Rach Writes.
The rules governing this challenge: 300 words or less, in any format, must utilize the words bloviate, fuliguline, rabbit, and blade. Also must include:
• one secret: I don't verbalize it (in fact this may be the first time), but I periodically have moments of panic about my son. Just this week, he was fevery (flu, I think) and took a bath and it took everything I had not to go in and check every five minutes. He's 12, but he was born early and not quite cooked (jaundiced, feeding tube, lights), and then had the flu at 14 months and had to be hospitalized for dehydration. I can still see him with his cozy stuffed rabbit (aptly named Cozy Bunny) he carried everywhere as a toddler—so sweet and fussy... only ever really liked us. It's hard to believe we're lucky enough to have the smart, social, healthy boy he is now, but that fear lingers.
• one lie (hidden among my peers, though I cheated... it's a detail, not a whole thing)
erm yeah... incapable of a 300 word post (I need much more time to write something that short), but there you have it...
SQUEEEEEEEEE: This just in! Made first cut at ABNA!!!!
