Thursday Inspiration — Over You

I was so into you
I could think of nothing else.
I just wanted to be next to you
So I could touch you all over
From head to toe
It was truly magical
For me, anyway

But then you started acting all queer
The times we spent together
Became, well turbulent
Your opinion of us as a couple
Changed dramatically
You called me clingy
And said you were
So over me

Written for Paula Light’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, where the theme is “over.” Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (touch), Word of the Day Challenge (queer), MMA Storytime (turbulent), Your Daily Word Prompt (opinion), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (cling).

This is Paula’s last Thursday Inspiration post. Jim Adams will be taking this prompt over, I assume starting next week.

Three Line Tales — Clues

“Did you dust for prints?” Detective Morrisey asked the crime scene investigator.

“Yes, detective, and all of the items, as well as the bench itself, were wiped clean,” the CSI tech said.

“Well, between the magnifying glass, the matchbox, the tin filled with cocaine, and the glass container with a syringe, small spoon, and the length of rubber tubing,” Detective Morrisey said, clicking his tongue,” I think I can safely deduce that Sherlock Holmes is somehow involved.”

Six Thousand Posts

Whoa! As of late yesterday afternoon, I had, according to WordPress, anyway, apparently reached the milestone of having published six thousand posts. That’s just since mid-May of 2017 when I started this blog, or two months shy of four years. And that works out to an average of about 130 posts per month. Damn, that’s a shitload of posts!

Thanks to your views, likes, and comments, you’ve kept me motivated to write…a lot. So thank you for reading and sticking with me. I value and appreciate each and every one of you.

FOWC with Fandango — Affordable

FOWCWelcome to March 18, 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 “affordable.”

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.
