Surprise-a-palooza: "Write about something you’ve done in your life that still really makes you cringe"

On the last Wednesday every month ChicagoNow bloggers participate in “Blogapalooz-Hour,” an optional writing exercise in which a topic unknown to the bloggers is sent out at a specific time and with the goal of publishing one hour from the time the topic is received.

But we tried something different today and sent out a topic when nobody was expecting one, and without the time limit attached.

Today’s topic: “Write about something you’ve done in your life that still really makes you cringe”
