“We made these ties for you by ourselves for your birthday, Daddy,” his excited daughter said.
“Yeah, Daddy, they’re handmade by us,” his proud son added.
“Thank you so much, kids,” he said.
“Will you wear them at your office tomorrow and the next day?” his daughter asked.
“Of course he will, won’t you dear?” his wife responded, a sly smile on her face.
Written for the In Other Words prompt from Patricia’s Place. The challenge this week is to write a story or poem of five lines or fewer using the word “handmade.”
I did not watch Donald Trump’s State of the Union address last night. Why not? Because he lies and he’s a moron and it would have been a total waste of time.
As comedian Bill Maher, host of his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” said this past Friday night of Donald Trump…
“I can’t tell where the lies end and the dementia begins.”

Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration. By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
This week’s provocative question asks an age old question that has stumped philosophers across the ages. Interpret this question any way you want.
“Do you believe that size matters? Please explain your response.”
If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.
And most important, have fun.
Welcome to February 6, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.
I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).
Today’s word is “whitewash.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.
Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.
And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
