What’s In YOUR Junk Drawer?

Do you have a “junk drawer” in your kitchen? We do. And almost everyone I know does, too.5DF5D80A-0FA5-4B0F-B2AC-306EED2996C4The photo above is of our kitchen junk drawer. There are two screwdrivers, a Sharpie, a pipe wrench, two retractable tape measures, a box cutter, some batteries, a local yellow pages book, a few menus, a pair of scissors, a few manuals for appliances, some cloth towels, eyeglass cleaners, some USB cables, and some small tissue packets.

So, your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to take a picture of your kitchen junk drawer and post it on your blog, or include it in a comment attached to this post. Don’t cheat and straighten it out or make it look neat and tidy. Just pull open the drawer and take a picture of it as is.

As Samuel L. Jackson always says, “What’s in your wallet kitchen junk drawer?”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #60

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. 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 I decided to get personal and ask a question that may not be provocative, but if you take the time to answer it and also read how others answered it, you might find it interesting.

How did you meet your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, or significant other?

In the event that you’re not currently married or in a “meaningful relationship,” please answer the question about your most recent (or most significant) relationship. And if you’ve never been in such a relationship, perhaps you can write a story about how you would envision meeting such a person.

(For what it’s worth, my wife of 42 years and I met on a blind date 44 years ago — a “fix up” by my older sister and her husband.)

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. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.

FOWC with Fandango — Bounce

FOWCWelcome to March 11, 2020 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 “bounce.”

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.

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