I could have written a post today about the paltry interest rate my bank is paying on my savings account, especially compared to the much greater interest rate I’m paying my bank for my mortgage.
I could have written a witty, clever bit of flash fiction that some readers might have found of interest.
I could have come up with all kinds of ways for incorporating the word “interest” into a post.
But with everything that is going on in this country, I just don’t have the interest in writing a post in response to this prompt.
Just as our lawmakers seem to have no interest in doing anything about enacting more common sense gun legislation and the NRA’s only interest is to protect the gun manufactures and to pay off the members of Congress to ensure that gun control laws are not on the agenda.
Just as conservative pundits have no interest in discussing gun laws in the wake of the tragic Las Vegas mass shooting on Sunday night. They say this is “not the right time” to be discussing such things. We should, they say, just send our thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims.
Just as our president has no real interest in making America great again. His only interest is to do everything he can to enrich himself, his family. and his already wealthy friends.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll have more interest in posting to my blog. But today, I have no interest.
This post was written for today’s one-word prompt, “interest.”
