Tapas: Small Spanish savory dishes, typically served with drinks at a bar.
I'm starting a new series around here. A Tuesday kinda series.
And since I love, love, love tapas ... I've decided to call it just that. Tuesday Tapas. It's got a ring to it or something.
Served at a bar.
I feel like tapas and I are BFFs.
Mk - so the premise is super easy. Sometimes I feel like I write myself into a corner here - all serious and nothing else. Soooooo. Two little things. Every Tuesday that I love or find super interesting. Or mildly interesting. Or funny. Small things.
... Kinda like tapas.
1) Neil Hilborn. While I was elbow deep in assigning my seniors 5,000 assignments for the end of the school year because I NEED TO TEACH THEM ALL THE THINGS BEFORE MAY ... I came across Neil Hilborn. And holy shiz, you guys.
I'm still new to the whole slam poetry genre/movement, but he is courage personified. Like he stands there and just -
This is one of my favorites.
2. Have you heard of the poet Amy Turn Sharp? She's amazing. Sharpies and true words - two of my favorite things, you guys. She is good. So good.
That's it! Don't you love Tuesday Tapas?
Me, too, dang it. Me, too.

I love, love, love flannel sheets and I am really passionate about lists on post it notes and most of the time I'm sad that no one else is as excited as I am about Diet Mountain Dew. I also adore run-on sentences.
