AWMondayMeme - Completely Made Up Fiction

I’m trying to catch up. Not sure how much I’ll accomplish or how soon, but here it goes.

Dawno posted this Monday Meme from Veinglory’s Blog.
Now, if you want to propagate the meme, as part of your post you should include the following text:
If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.

As always, I'd love it if you'd use the AWMondayMemes's tag.

My good friend Ray showed a different side of himself before Christmas. He told me he never dog-ears pages of a book. He said he likes hardcover books and reread books all the time, but I can’t imagine why he threw my book into the algae edge of North Park Lake. He has spoken of “Show vs. Tell” on several occasions. Maybe this was his way of showing me that my writing is green? Or not worth the scum it sunk beneath?

All kidding aside, good writing or not, hardcover or not, reread or not, thank goodness I woke up from that dream before I attempted to retrieve that book from the murky waters of the lake. I probably would have fallen out of bed.

We all know that Ray dislikes hardcover books, never rereads books, and my book hasn’t been published…YET!

Make me smile. Leave a comment...
