Two Phrase Story #37

I would like to present a word challenge. Thanks to Elusive Trope for encouraging me to get off my lazy ass and actually try to get more readers involved in this weekly game. I would never have attempted it if you had not pushed me, ET!

The premise is simple. I provide one phrase every Thursday, an incomplete string of words, and it is up to you to complete it in your own, inimitable way. However you like, taking it in any direction you want.

If you like the concept and think other people might be interested in participating, please play along and post the complete challenge on your blog and leave a link in the comments section below. If you’d just like to take part yourself, please post the reply directly in the comments section. I will be posting all the replies together with links to the contributors in 10 days, i.e. the Saturday after next.

I love the mental exercise, I hope you do too!

This week’s phrase –

“I’m no one…….”

My attempt

“…….that you’d like to know.”

Your turn!

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  8. Though I like the second phrase, I doubt that.. 😉 There are few crazy people out there who are interested in knowing about the ins and outs of the life of anyone and everyone except themselves.. 😉

  15. I’m no-one, but here you are standing in front of me, telling all our friends and assorted family members not feuding with us that you’re prepared to spend the rest of your life next to me, and that makes me someone, and I will always be grateful to you, if only for that upgrade in my status.

  17. Thanks for the link-up Aadhira! And you’re right about the minimal rules – there’s just one “Complete with a phrase.” 🙂
