Just in to the prompts today. The second prompts are harvested from someone on OD, who’s trying to sorta resurrect the old NoJoMo bits there.
I am writing because I’ve already hit my work target for the week, and am out of workable hours. Maybe, though, Sunday, I’ll actually have a full day off for the first time in like two weeks.
So on to it….
Are you listed as an organ or bone marrow donor? Why or why not?
I was. My disabled guy ID doesn’t show it anymore, though.
At the same time, like anybody would want my organs with the sheer amount of chemicals pumped into my body, I wonder if anyone’d want them. If there was something on/in me to salvage, I guess someone could have it, but I’m having trouble figuring out what of me might be of any use.
My blood? No, I ate British beef in the 1980s, so nobody will take that while I’m alive.
Hair? Well, what of it’s still left, maybe.
How would you describe yourself to someone who had never met you?
This one is tough.
I’m a married guy in his late-thirties. No kids. Nerd. Not much of a professional future left on account of my physical disability; I have multiple sclerosis. MS has taken most of my vision, and quite a bit of my mobility.
My father was a career Army officer, so I grew up all over the place; I attended three high schools. While I was in college, I started working in television, then radio. I stayed in broadcasting for the better part of a decade. I left radio in 2005 to try to pay off my college debts, in preparation for going to law school.
Instead, I met the girl I’d marry. I got sick, and she stuck around.
And I got turned around while writing this. The work I thought I was going to do tomorrow got quadrupled. Oh well. I like what I’m doing.
