I stared at this challenge topic for five and a half days...

Nothing. No ideas at all. Nothing. I really tried.

I asked my family for ideas.


I Googled.

Nothing. Not even a glimmer.

I stared at it more.

Then... More. I stared at it more.

Then... my hubby ... overspent... just ONE MORE TIME and... I had it!


JUST KIDDING!! I'm totally happily married (for 28+ years and Hubby says he is, too).

It just came to me. POP! Into my brain.

I wonder how many other entries will be the exact same entry... down to popping keys off of a keyboard.

It seems so obvious to me ... now that I've thought of it.


As I look at the image... It makes me ponder the "X" and the "Cntrl" keys...

I've never pondered them before. Ha!

Live life, folks! But, remember that... SOME things are worth ... 'most everything.

Tell your spouse that you love him/her... that you're glad you chose him/her.... and you'd do it again.

Life is what you make it.

Should have finished higher!

A surprisingly low finish. I expected this one to contend for a top 5 on the strength of the concept alone... even with the cardinal sin of repeating the challenge name in the title.

Should've used the ring for the O in divOrce! Either way, I like your idea. I had plans on doing something including divorce but that it'd be overdone in this challenge.. Shockingly enought, it wasn't!

Nice image.
