FOWC with Fandango — Pantomime

FOWCWelcome to April 12, 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 “pantomime.”

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.

    I once saw a live mime, in San francisco, at the wharf area. I’m sure I’ve seen others live, but this one was outstanding. He was there for the general public, but ended up performing only for me and my husband. I kinda wish I’d asked for a name. But you don’t know what to do in the situation. I didn’t anyway. I didn’t feel creeped out, just quiet.

      … my husband and me… my husband and myself…

      I was just encouraged, last night, not to worry so much about this.

      I listened to the “The Bagman” series of podcasts, by Rachel Maddow, last night.

      At least one of the clever fellas who got Spiro Agnew to resign as VP said, me and…[so-n-so].

        The context was even different. His line should have been … [so-n-so] and I. Maybe he said [so-n-so] and me. Now I don’t remember his order, only that the context meant he ought to have said “I” for himself. In my own context, I only got the order wrong.

        I haven’t listen to that podcast, but I definitely plan to do so. I hear it’s very good.

          I found it compelling. I was very impressed with the people involved back then, and how they felt about it — now. Also, I had what journalists, I think, call a hook… besides the fact I was old enough (though very young) to have a clue about Nixon at the time.

          My dad and I would sometimes buy refrigerator magnets at the gas station. One of my favorites (for no particular reason) was a cartoon image of Nixon that said, “Good ol’ Spiro!” I picked it out. I had no idea what it meant, except that Spiro was a name.

            Oh. It’s not “The Bagman” — it’s “Bag Man.”

      But you made it and that’s what counts, right? 👍
