Weekend Writing Prompt — Rectify

“I want to throw a shoe at the screen every time I see his orange face,” Carl said. “Just seeing him spewing his bullshit upsets my digestive tract.”

“I’ll rectify that.” Helen unplugged the television.

(35 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “rectify.”

Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (shoe), Your Daily Word Prompt (tract), and Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (television).

    Meanwhile, some people need to turn it on. They don’t know anything but think they know. Getting reports from “Q” or a bunch of dopes, or even no one really.

    Good solution! I was recently at the clinic and found I couldn’t even escape political ads there while I listened to some music during an MRI. No place is safe!
