My first dabbles into the world of writing for publication included a short story entitled "Cindy and the Meatloaf Monster". Little unsuspecting Cindy refuses to eat her mother's stinky meatloaf - complete with green peas and sour smell - and is sent to her room. Unfortunately, her room is not the safe haven she thought. She must fight off a colossal Meatloaf Monster and his army of meatloaf minions! One day I'll bring that story with the other short tales together in a collection.
My dear husband swears if I try HIS version of meatloaf, I'll like it. He's a great cook after all, and I love hamburgers, so what's the difference? I'll tell you the difference, meatloaf is nasty. Even if it tasted like chocolate wrapped in hot fudge with caramel sauce and ice cream on top, I still wouldn't go near the stuff. Sometimes you can't break the lessons of childhood. In this case, mom taught me meatloaf is not for me.
Do you have any fears or habits that have stuck with you since childhood?
