Tales From The Crypt

“The election is one week from today,” Nancy, the campaign manager, said. “Were you able to reserve the front portion of the reception hall at the Stowaway Hotel for our campaign staff to utilize as the site of our election night celebration?”

“Yes, but, Nancy,” Josh said, “our candidate is behind in the polls by almost double digits.”

“You can’t believe the polls,” Nancy said. “Look what happened with Donald Trump in 2016.”

“Yeah, like Trump, Nancy, you’re delusional,” Josh said. “I think reserving a small crypt might be a more appropriate venue, as there probably won’t be anything to celebrate next Tuesday night.”

The Longest Week Ever

My stomach hurts
I have indigestion
My head aches
My vision is blurry
I can’t sleep
I’m exhausted
I’m depressed
I’m angry
I’m disgusted
I’m anxious
I’m frustrated
I’m afraid
I’m nervous
I’ve lost my appetite

Will this waking nightmare ever end?
I feel like I am going crazy
I don’t know how much longer I can take it
I want this to be over
I need this to be over
The presidential election is one week from today
Seven days from now

Time feels like time it is standing still

FOWC with Fandango — Utilize

FOWCWelcome to October 27, 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 “utilize.”

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.
