“You call yourself a wordsmith? That’s absurd. If anything, you’re the antithesis of a wordsmith. You may strive to be one, but you can’t spell, you’re lousy at grammar, and you can’t put a coherent sentence together. You’re a basket case.”
Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “absurd” using exactly 61 words.Also for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (wordsmith/antithesis), Your Daily Word prompt (strive), MMA Storytime (basket), The Daily Spur (grandfather), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (patience).
