Red Writing Hood: It’s 8:00, do you know where you children are?

November 4, 2011

Creative, Memes, Red Writing Hood

8PM, newborn:

Hungry, hungry, hungry, wait.  Ewwww.  Wet, wet, wet, WEEEEET!

8PM, 5-year-old:

Daddy’s coming to get me soon, Daddy’s coming to get me soon, YAY!!!!!

8PM, 10-year-old:

Man, I never get to stay up to watch Moonlighting!

8PM, 15-year-old:

Crap… OK, Don’t panic.  J you’ve got to help me get the car out of this ditch, I CAN’T call my dad for help, he’ll kill me!

8PM, 20-year-old:

Margarita, salt, rocks. (Look confident.  Use the Force.  These are not the under-agers you’re looking for…)

8PM, 25-year-old:

Hrm… where are we going out to dance, and which shoes should I wear?

8PM, 30-year-old:

Hrm… what are we making for dinner, and which bottle of wine are we cracking open?  By the way, you want kids when we get married, right?

8PM, 35-year-old:

Hungry, hungry, hungry, wait.  Ewwww.  Wet, wet, wet, WEEEEET!

    Right there with Earlybird, I could smile and relate all the way through.

    Great take on the prompt! I smiled at all of them. Now I’m tempted to go back and attempt a year-by-year for myself. 8PM sure looked a lot different five years ago…

      Oh please do, and then come back and add a link to it here in the comments! I had a lot of fun trying to find the really defining emotions and moments, and I bet you will, too! I’d love to see what all of your 8PMs are. 🙂

    LOL, very amusing…and very accurate!


  6. Lance Says:

    yeah, pretty much perfect.

    Love it! Each year was great. I think I may have known that 15 year old.


  8. Cameron Says:

    Spot on… I remember the choosing of shoes….

    Hehehe…this was a very creative take on the prompt. I loved it!


    • Venus Says:

      Thanks! To be honest, it was totally last-minute as it was Friday lunchtime, and I’d only just read the prompt… Inspiration out of desperation? 😉

    I love your take on this! IT made me go back and think of all my 8pm’s… I’m so glad to be where I’m at now!


  11. Laura Says:

    Very funny! Very cool take on the prompt.

    Oh, do I ever love this! So very clever and relatable and I adore the flu circle!

    Great job, you!
