Thirty Days of Truth: Day Seven

Day 7: Someone who has made your life worth living for.


Again with the preposition left hanging at the end of a sentence fragment. I'm going to have a serious talk with the internet about its memes.

The answer to this question is so obviously Schmutzie that I'd like to make something up. I'll say that a crow, a crow with one dead eye in a cage suspended in the branches of a tree, a tree of surpassing height on a plain at the edge of the city, a city that someone imagined on a slow afternoon in a traffic jam on the PCH or the M1 or the 401 but dismissed with hardly a thought when the jam, the result of a jacknifed truck a mile up the road, unclogged itself, and a traffic cop waved everyone on, slow and sure and measured with each wave, measuring the traffic out wheel by wheel, a slow inverted paddling through the air, as if the earth had been pinned down in its rotation, as if the crawling traffic were actually still, and the traffic cop were drifting backwards with each wave of his hand. My life is given worth by that crow.

You two make me believe that love DOES exist.

Also, maybe it would be better if the meme said "Name someone who has made your life worth living for" because then it would be more of a command then a silly sentence fragment.

The internet rarely passes the grammar test.

You can call me, 'Sir' said...

Yes, the crow was my backup answer, as well. Poor crow. Always the bridesmaid, etcetera, etcetera.

I like this 30 Days of Truth thing - although there are some really hairy questions on it!

I think I'm going to borrow it.
