Truthful Tuesday — Patient Patience

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know…

Doctor and dental offices are notorious for not getting to you at your scheduled appointment time. In such situations, how patient are you when it comes to waiting?

Maybe I’m lucky, but my doctor and dentist are both pretty good at seeing me usually within five to ten minutes of my scheduled appointment time. That said, however, as long as I have my iPhone with me — which I always do — and there is a decent cellular signal or WiFi connection, I can be a very patient patient.

Cat Scratch Fever

Yesterday, fellow blogger Judy Dysktra Brown wrote a post in which she showed off a very bruised arm that she blamed on “naughty dogs” who leave their marks when jumping up on her.

Pretty gross, huh? When I saw Judy’s wounds picture, I commented, “Okay, I think I need to post a picture of the wounds and scabs on my on my hands and arms that my cat bestows upon me with his razor sharp claws if I dare to ignore him when I’m reading the morning paper. There will be blood!”

To which Judy said, “So I showed you mine. You show me yours.” I told her that I would do so the next time my beloved cat mauled me.

Well, it didn’t take long for my cat to maul me. I was sitting at the table trying to read my morning paper when the cat jumped up on the table and started walking all over the newspaper in a subtle attempt to get my attention. I tried to ignore him, which was a big mistake. In a lightning fast motion and with his razor sharp claws extended, he struck with precision accuracy, his claws tearing at the skin on the last two fingers of my left hand.

I told you, Judy, there will be blood. Happy now?

FOWC with Fandango — Clique

FOWCWelcome to June 8, 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 “clique.”

About eight days ago I had scheduled the word “click” for today’s FOWC with Fandango’s word, but yesterday “click” was used as the Word of the Day Challenge word, so I quickly had to change my word today from “click” to “clique.” That’s the first time in the three years I e been doing this prompt that that’s happened.

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.
