our monday blog prompt is to write about our opposite. Here's mine:
Melissa was nothing like her cousin. The only thing they had in common was their birthday – March 20th. Otherwise, they were complete opposites; they didn’t even like each other much. Melissa was a staunch Republican with no wiggle room and felt that anyone worth anything should be able to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, nevermind whether they had any bootstraps. She had no use for animals, except perhaps in zoos, and when she saw the oily birds from the BP spill her only comment was a complaint about how the price of gas would probably go up. Her house was spotless, perfect, and paid for, because she had done everything right from the getgo. She went to college straight out of high school, majored in business, and was CEO of the company she started with a loan from her well-to-do dad. She didn’t read much, just the comics and the business page, hated sports, and was happily married with two children, a boy and a girl. This year the family was going to Antarctica for their summer holiday.
