EWR: Eighteen, Welcome To Adulthood

Welcome to the July 26, 2009 edition of Everything Worth Reading. I'm aware that today is July 28th. Mea culpa. My Sunday involved a massive hangover after three hours of sleep due to large free drinks on the last night of NYC's Knitting Factory. As for our carnival, I sifted through a helluva lot of irrelevant posts this month. Here's a hint--if your post begins with "How To," then it is a How-To-Post and not for this carnival. Yes? Yes. Thanks to everyone who submitted good writing stuff. It's all below for everyone to enjoy.

christopher foster presents Old husband finally learns new trick posted at thehappyseeker.com.

Jim Murdoch presents The Truth About Lies: Why I hate love poetry posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, "Why is it so hard to write a good love poem? Everyone has a go at one or two in their lives which when we run across them years later it's hard to imagine thinking we were in love could result in such rot. The article examines just what you need to include if you truly want to write truly cringeworthy poetry. Or alternatively you can try avoiding these pitfalls and maybe write something half-decent."

Fiona Leonard presents The History of the Shed posted at Year In America, saying, "Remember Rosa Parks? Ever wonder what happened to the bus she was riding on?"

Lucy presents Wedding Symbolism posted at Wedding Tips, saying, "What the wedding ring, kiss at the altar, and bride's veil symbolize."
