FOWC with Fandango — Delivery

FOWCWelcome to October 3, 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 “delivery.”

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. Please 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.

    My grappling with delivery, right now, is how to communicate to my mother — if it is possible — that she is only ruining her own life (and hurting me in the process… which is nothing new). Her twin sister has been permanently put into a home of some sort after checking herself into a hospital because she was suicidal. If her daughters hadn’t made this decision, the hospital was going to take over themselves. She’s over eighty. My mom is too stubborn to become suicidal (and may, herself, be a big reason her sister became suicidal), and I don’t want to put her in a home for old people anyway. However, she absolutely can’t handle her finances. Multiple attorneys have told me she can “do whatever she wants” (as in being scammed) with her money. The only way she can be helped is if she lets me. (And, of course, there’s another element to this. I could be a fool and throw money her way, and this seems to be what she wants. But she has to cooperate, such as by signing the house over to me before I can direct thousands of dollars that way. She hasn’t been paying the property taxes and has no way to figure it out.) If she keeps on as she is, the government will take over at some point — and they won’t be nicer to her than I would be.
