Shape Up or Ship Out

Daily Prompt: Shape Up or Ship Out

by michelle w. on June 17, 2013

Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.

_______________________________________________

Dear myself,

You have tried your best to Ship Out to the Cape. That wasn’t meant to be.

SO, for heaven’s sake- Shape Up!

In a personality test a few years ago, one of the things said about you was “Comfortable with Chaos” … well, guess what, I am fed up with it!

Ugly… my desk just now…

Stop talking about it, and get off your lazy bum, and sort out your desk!

And then, go out and do some exercise, it does not help only reading about other people walking the CAmino, or doing some mountain biking, reading does not make you fitter.

So stop the Chaos, and get some order in your life.

Otherwise I am going to Black SAm you!

20 minutes later- after being Black Sammed by myself, I listened…

THE desk is better… 20 minutes later…

2013-06-18 10.24.05But now- How on earth do I get order in my books and CD’s?

And where the **** is that paper I need for this afternoon’s meeting?

I just can not beat the Chaos!

  1. Kreef en snoek kan ook maar overrated raak 😉 Ek wonder net waarheen het al daai papiere verdwyn in net 20 minute! My pa het ‘n regte egte vloermoer gegooi as my ma sy kas reggepak het – want dan kon hy NIKS kry nie. Daar was orde in sy chaos 😆

  3. Nice! I should try that but the problem is laziness in my writing is the thing I need to give myself a good ‘black-sam’ about…ha ha! I’ll give it a try regardless

  4. Dit klink lekker op die oor , ons ry 5 uur vanaf Total rustig ; kom ry saam ! Nou ek is seker nie die een wat kan raad gee nie .Laat daardie deur toegaan dan gaan volgende oop , as hy nie toegaan dan sukkel volgende een om oop te gaan ! Sterkte en lekker ry !!!!

  5. ‘n Stap in die regte rigting! Doen iets! Einde 2000 hoor ons ons gaan Kaap toe, het 3 dae (letterlik) om blyplek te kry, vlieg nog een dag heen-en-weer en koop daardie dag, skryf die kinders (gr 9 & 8) op die eerste dag van die nuwe jaar by die nuwe skool in en die oudste 2 weke later by die nuwe universiteit in. Ses jaar later kom ek en geliefde terug Gauteng toe, twee kinders bly agter en een swot by UP. Wat het ek geleer? Moet nooit moeg word vir waar jy is nie. Die berg en die see bly mooi en nooit maar net deel van die omgewing nie. Die sonsondergange op die Hoëveld is asemrowend. Ek moet net aanhou kyk. Reën is in die somer én in die winter ‘n seën. ‘n Mens kan op enige plek bly, gelukkig wees en gehoorsaam wees as jy wil. Dóén dit net! Baie seen met julle besluit. En bêre maar eers vir Black Sam. 🙂

  6. For the non- South AFricans- Black Sam in Afrikaans (bliksem) is the word for lightning. Being very superstitious, people regard it as a swear word in our community. But it is so nice to say- I am going to Black Sam you…
