No Reason to Reject the Ordinary

As an writer I’ve always hoped for a grander life, so that after I’d passed my prime or relevance, I could write a shocking, interesting memoir and be that cool old lady who had seen the world. Unfortunately, my life has been relatively average in most respects and average is what doesn’t get written about….

I, Robot

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/you-robot/ I’ve already discussed in a previous post my dislike to for washing dishes so I think I’ll flip this challenge a bit.

There are…
