Ep. 86 Peep Wars

Welcome to the bench! We write on the bench, we snack on the bench and we procrastinate on the bench. This episode is a week late, but, much like all of you, this new lifestyle is creating a sort of chaos around everything. Especially with kids and homeschooling and the realization that this is our new normal for a very…. long… time… So, are you #TeamMarshmallow? Or do you want to be right with Tricia on the #PeepHaters team?

Ep. 83 Medical Tongs

Welcome to the bench! We write on the bench, we snack on the bench and we procrastinate on the bench… and we’re spending our lock down writing – join us! It’s time for #RandomWriteClub – there are 3 writing prompts in this episode – send your reply to 2girlsonabench@gmail.com whenever, and we’ll share it. Since the world is a ball pit right now why not spend it writing, what else is there to do? And also… #snackapocalypse needs to be a thing. Just sayin’.

 

#RANDOMWRITECLUB #PROMPTS

  1. Your phone rings, the number looks familiar. You pick up to hear your own voice asking you for help.
  2. You’re abducted by Aliens who don’t know what sleep is. The Aliens start to get worried when the human they found stops moving.
  3. “Stop!” commanded your GPS. “It is time you discovered the truth. In 400 yards, turn left.”
