#JusJoJan — Indelible Funnel Cakes

6021AF12-4D6C-4D7D-8501-C820319DB834I’ve got to stop doing this. I woke up this morning, picked up my iPhone, and opened the WordPress app. I went to the reader and saw Linda G. Hill’s Just Jot It January post. Today’s prompt was suggested by Ruth over at Image & Word. Her word was “indelible.” But as I was reading Linda’s post in bed, barely awake, my sleepy eyes saw the word “inedible.”

And then, as I continued perusing the posts in my reader, still in bed and still not fully awake, I saw that the WordPress one-word prompt for today was “funnel.” I love funnel cakes like those you get at carnivals and fairs. They are not inedible at all. In fact, funnel cakes are actually quite edible.

So I decided to write another “twofer,” a post that would be linked to both Linda’s JusJoJan prompt and to WordPress’ one-word prompt.

Still in bed, I was busily tapping away at my iPhone’s virtual keypad composing my twofer post when the need to pee interrupted my creative process. After taking care of business, I decided to go downstairs to the kitchen and fix myself a cup of coffee. While sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee, I went back to my almost finished post about funnel cakes based upon the premise that such cakes are anything but inedible.

Now wide awake, I checked my reader once more before publishing my masterpiece declaring that funnel cakes are not inedible. That’s when I saw this post from blogger John Holton and discovered that the JusJoJan word was, in fact, “indelible,” not “inedible.” Damn.

Not wanting to start from scratch, I have decided to not waste one more minute today trying to respond to either of these prompts. See you all tomorrow.

    I also love funnel cakes, so much so that I have developed an indelible relationship with them.

    Ha! I can see myself doing this, too. I often make this kind of mistake especially when reading email. Most humorous post!

    I really love it when this happens- it reminds me of those SNL skits with Emily Litella!!

      Ah, someone like me who is old enough to remember Emily Litella. “Never mind.” And Roseanne Roseannadanna, too, I bet.

            And Lily Tomkin? Still is, but I loved the ringy dingy on Laugh In I think it was.

              Yes, along with Goldie Hawn and Jo Ann Worley.

    haha! This happens to me, too, all the time. My vision is pretty blurry anyway, and I’m always reading words wrong. Love how you told it here. 🙂

    Never heard of funnel cakes, but I know how easy it is to imagine one word without realising you’ve got it wrong, did the same thing the other night with another prompt, so went back and changed the words…I still think it made sense, at I tell myself so.

    Luckily funnel cakes only appear once a year. They are light, greasy, sweet and incredibly messy, and very edible indeed. I agree, let it lay.

    You know I should call it dedication, but I do hope it doesn’t become an addiction. The first thing to do after you wake up is pee and not look at the smart phone screen.
