FOWC with Fandango — Copacetic

FOWCWelcome to October 19, 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 “copacetic.”

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.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

    This is one of the very few words originally taken from Hebrew. It is supposed to have come into English through black children hearing the Yiddish expression used by Jewish storekeepers in the South. … Copacetic is an unusual English language word in that it is one of the few words of unknown origin that is not considered slang in contemporary usage.

      Ugh. My prompts post today also included a picture of him in which he was destroying the Constitution.

        I hold firmly to the possibility (hope it’s inevitable) that he’s kicked out and soon.

    Wow, what a word, Fandango. I’ve never even heard of it before. I Googled it, but I doubt I’ve used it in the right context. Thanks for extending my vocab and making my brain work on a dull Sunday morning here in Melbourne 🙂
