I believe being a writer is one of the biggest gifts you can give to your students. ~ Stacey Shubitz
This month I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for creating a space for me to share my corner of the world.
I have a new addiction. Not that I need or want one.
I had heard about this soon-to-be addiction from some of my friends - Michelle Haseltine and Jennifer Laffin. (I blame it on them!)
Walking down the aisle at Walmart, I would look at this soon-to-be addiction and convince myself I didn't need them. The next shopping trip (and the next), I did the same thing. I tried to ignore it, but one day I had a meltdown.
I stopped in the aisle and said, "I can't take it any more!"
I bought some. It was a small package of this soon-to-be addiction because I was just going to "try" them. But I fell in love.
Then, as I was walking down the aisle of Walmart again, I heard a bigger package of this soon-to-be addiction calling my name. It's like they were taunting me. I kept telling them that I didn't need them in my life. The small package would be enough. But when you have a soon-to-be addiction, that little voice in your head just won't stop...
you buy them!
That soon-to-be addiction is now a real one. I love the way these pens glide over the paper without smearing and the colors...oh, look at the colors. The sad part is, I know there is an even bigger package lurking on the shelf!
But I am not listening!
