It’s a new month, and here is July’s 120 word challenge from Joelle:
Today’s prompt is: Your most eccentric family member.
(check it out here)
I suppose there is a difference between eccentric and mad.
I can’t recall anyone ever saying we had a mad person in our family tree, but I bet we did, and it was just hushed up.
As for eccentric, well, I don’t know anyone who actually started hoovering the lawn in the early hours of the morning or wearing odd shoes, though it’s not uncommon to wear odd socks under the guise of they’re all the same colour anyway.
Wearing men’s clothes, having conversations with animals and birds alike (even worse expecting them to respond), removing price labels from everything whether it’s a gift or not, even holding a debate with themselves and losing.
Guess that would be me then.
