Weekend Writing Prompt — Elevate the Dialogue

“We need to have a conversation, sir,” an aide said. “Things are getting dire and you barely have a modicum of respect. You need to elevate the dialogue.”

Levitate?”

“No, sir, not levitate, elevate, as in to raise the level by trying to weave some rationality and truth into your speeches.”

“Stop trying to blame me. You’re fired.”

(58 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “dire.”Also for these daily prompts: MMA Storytime (conversation), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (modicum), Your Daily Word Prompt (levitate), The Daily Spur (raise), Ragtag Daily Prompt (weaves) and Word of the Day Challenge (blame).

    Some day you’ll look back and say, “Remember when I had so much to inspire me to write…” Ha, ha! This was good!
