Journal prompt: Did you ever pretend to be sick so you could stay home from school?
I guess I’m a little boring – but no, I do not remember pretending to be sick so I could stay home from school. I was quite a bit of a goodie-two-shoes kind of person and I would have felt way too guilty to actually sluff school! I’m pretty sure that there was a few times that I wanted to be sick and not go to school, but I never did it.
Each Tuesday, I am going to be offering prompts or ideas. If you don’t write in your journal regularly – I am going to encourage you to write just ONCE A WEEK and answer the question/idea that I give on Tuesdays. These ideas hopefully will spark a memory and you will be able to capture that in what you write/record so that it can be left for your children/grandchildren/family/friends. Give as much detail as you can when answering.
Will you do this for me? Will you do this for your families? You can write it down in a journal, you can type it up on a computer or journaling software, you can take a recorder and talk, you can videotape your answers, you can even scrap a page with the journaling. It doesn’t matter how you do this – it’s just important that you do it. The memories, the dates, the information is the only real thing we can leave to our families when we are gone.
