Red – Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday

My second time joining Five Minute Friday, a link-up where dozens of “rabid, vociferous mommy bloggers” (aka PicMonkey addicts) write on the same topic and post their links together. Each Friday, a new word is posted, and the challenge is five minutes of writing – unedited, real and flowing. This week: Red

red coke


Red is an icy cold Coke after walking for hours at a dusty Texas fair. With a side of Frito pie. Refresh and recharge.

Red is a pair of bright shoes I keep telling myself I could pull off. But I don’t have the guts.

Red is my baby’s first bloody nose, staining the sheets and causing panic to her momma. Just breathe and snuggle.

Red is a shiny Kitchenaid mixer on my counter, alluring and inspiring. What can I whip up today?

Red is a classic wagon with my smiling daughter yelling, “Faster!” to her daddy. Sweet memories.

Red is a stop light. A stop sign. Beware. Do not enter.

Red is the color of the blood that flowed down the face of someone who loved us so… Anyone remember that song?

  1. I’m surprised it’s coke and not Dr. Pepper. Aren’t you a Dr. Pepper fan? It’s been too long since we’ve been together that I cannot even remember that little fact.

    Love the simplicity here, how red touches our lives in so many different ways, and in one major one. Happy Friday, Diana!!!

  2. I love that song! I actually always think of it when people mention “red” randomly in a conversation! Good old Petra! Thanks for sharing. You did really well with this word prompt! I struggled! Have a great weekend!
