Hi Kids! Rob the Intern here. Today is my very last day at P&G as I am retiring. “Kids” is the relevant word for this month’s RTT topic because when you finally hit that magic day when you’re able to walk away from your employer, it tends to put one in a very nostalgic mood, one where you’re thinking back on all your past days, especially those of growing up; being young without a care in the world…especially not dreaming of needing to hold a job or raising a family.
Remember the Time when you had not a care in the world?
Emily shares with me that she might be back to join the fun very soon so in any regard, I want to thank you all for hanging in there with me, for contributing to the monthly RTT blog hop and merely for not forgetting about Emily while she’s on ‘shore leave’. In light of her potential return and my retirement, (from real work that is), I thought it might be fun for a sort of ‘free for all’ type of blog hop.
If you’re reading this, then likely you’re a grown-up. If you’re a grown-up, then you must have had a childhood (see how smart I am? No wonder I can retire!) We’ve all likely had ourselves some rough times, but hopefully all of you out there can relate to a time of youth when you had no cares. Perhaps you had cares, but today they seem so miniscule in comparison with those of today? How about we all share a simple story of simpler times. Let’s go back in time together and ‘remember when’. Share a story of growing up, maybe something about your brothers and sisters. Perhaps you’d like to share a simple story of a memory that makes you smile every time you think about it? The story I am sharing this month always puts a smile on my face…(even now).
The rules each month are the same. Stick to the theme of growing up and writing about a simpler time of life. The main point is to write, to share and have fun. Just please stick to the “remember the time” vibe that Emily and Kelly have been working so hard to maintain. As always, attach the cute RTT badge to your posting and follow the instructions below to allow us all to share your memories.
The linkup closes July 31sth at 11:55PM EST, so be sure to get your link in before then!
As before, I’m pasting Emily’s instructions from a previous month’s RTT challenge. Let’s have fun!
Write your post and affix the brand new (ooooooh! ahhhhh!) RTT badge at the bottom of it. Then, add your link to the Inlinkz box at the bottom of this post so that all the other participants can read it! And while I have your attention with the gripping details of the linkup, allow me to add a couple guidelines about linking up.
Firstly, please only submit your link if it is related to the prompt. While we LOVE all nostalgic stories, this is a writing “challenge” of sorts and we’d like for all submissions to be thematically similar. Hold your great tale of the time your cat fell down the chimney for a Wild Card month. ;D
Also, the Inlinkz form has changed recently and it’s doing that sorta-kinda annoying thing where the description of what goes in each box is actually BELOW the box. (I know. But it’s free.) Be sure to pay close attention when when you’re filling in the boxes or your link won’t work.
And last but not least, for the box labeled “Name”, please type the name of your blog instead of the title of your post. Capiche?
