A Month of Love #13

Paula Light says, “Let’s celebrate the month of lurve (aka love) by posting one thing we love every day throughout February.

Now the truth is that I’m not really a romantic guy, so I might be hard pressed to come up with 28 objects of love, but I think I should be able to come up with 28 things I like a lot.

I love blogging. There, I said it! Plain and simple. I love blogging.

She’s Luminous

She is so luminous
I just want to hug her
I’m going to ask out for a date
I hope she’s in a cheery mood
When I ask her
Wish me luck

SoCS/Opposing Forces

Well this is special. Linda G. Hill gave us “above/below” for her Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. And weejars gave us “giant/tiny” and “heavy/light” for the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Opposing Forces Prompt. Three sets of opposites.

So I thought it might be fun to come up with one stream of consciousness post that combines the three pairs of opposites. Let’s see how I do.

“I promise you, Marianne,” Josh said as he sat across the kitchen table from his wife, “this is not one of my hairbrained schemes. Everything is above board. And if it all goes as planned, the payoff in the end will be nothing short of giant.”

“Yeah, right, Josh,” Marianne said. “What kind of con is your tiny little brain cooking up now?”

Josh reached over and grabbed Marianne’s hands. “You used to believe in me, Marianne,” he said. “Now you sling insults at me.” Josh got a hurt look on his face. “I ain’t no lightweight, you know. You’re hitting me below the belt with comments like that.”

Marianne pulled her hands away from Josh’s. “You have a history, Josh. You always end up screwing your scams up and I wind up stuck having to bail you out of a jam.”

“This time it’s going to different, Marianne, I swear to you,” Josh said. “I’ve got it all worked out, so you can leave the heavy lifting to me.”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” Marianne said. “That’s what you say and then the burden falls upon me to clean up your mess.”

“Have faith in me, Marianne,” Josh said. “I’m going to score big time on this one and then we’ll have enough to get out of this shithole apartment and live the good life together.”

Marianne looked sympathetically at Josh. “Okay, fine,” she said. “One last con. Just promise me, Josh, that you won’t get yourself killed.”

“Aw, see, you do love me,” Josh said as he stood up, moved over to where Marianne was sitting, and gave her a kiss.

FOWC with Fandango — Luck

FOWCWelcome to February 13, 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 “luck.”

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.
