SoCS — The Assignation

“How will I recognize you?” Craig texted.

“I’m sitting at a table in the corner at the far end of the restaurant,” Deana responded.

“It will take me about half an hour to get there,” Craig texted.

“No worries,” Deana responded. “I brought a book to keep me occupied. I know this place is a little out of the way, but I wanted to make sure that there was no chance of our respective spouses catching us together.”

“Okay, then,” Craig tested. “I’ll see you in about thirty, then.”

“Great,” Deana texted back. I’ll be sitting at a table in the corner wearing a big smile on my face.”

FOWC with Fandango — Brass

FOWCWelcome to January 2, 2021 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 “brass.”

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.
