Scaredy Cat? Visiting Coach Eli's 6-Word Theme.


From time to time I participate in Coach Eli's 6-word blogger challenge. I know a lot of you participate or visit, but I wanted to give it a shout-out, just because I think it's fun (and so those who haven't seen it, but might be interested, could take a look).

The challenge this go around was to answer 'what we are chicken of' in just six words (no more, no less).  Looks like Marcia (Menopausal Mom blog) and I were on the same page for this one. ;)

You can find the challenge here: Coach Eli's Six Word Challenge

Thanks for the include, Eli. :)

Cockroaches is a good pick. There are the bugs and then there are the two legged ones too.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

mail4rosey said...

I laughed at your answer. That time'll be here before you know it, but you've still got years to enjoy princesses. :)

mail4rosey said...

I used to just tell myself that if you're going to live where it's warm year round, there's gonna be a trade-off. ;)

mail4rosey said...

mail4rosey said...

You got that right. ;)

Rowell Reviews said...

I have agoraphobia so my initial sentence would be "Stepping foot outside of my yard". I'm ok with creepy crawlies as long as t hey aren't ON me.

I have never seen a flying cockroach. That had to be HUGE!!

Elephant's Child said...

Love it. There are some fun (and scary) responses.

alissa apel said...

They are huge in Georgia. Don't move there! One time I stepped on one, and a whole bunch of cockroach babies hatched. Yuck!

Also the praying mantis is related to the cockroach.
