FOWC with Fandango — Stoic


Welcome to October 10, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “stoic.”

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.

    Two guys from New York were tailing about how they explained sex to their kids. One guy said “I just told ’em that the stoic brung ’em.” 🙂

    An example of things my mother says to me is that she doesn’t know what man I’m waiting for when I’m sitting in the living room at night. (She goes upstairs to bed at dusk [or before dusk in the summer or, rather, during CS time] and falls asleep on the couch [although she denies that] before. It can be tempting to respond as if she will catch on to reason if I tell her the thought that nothing else can be happening but a waiting in watch to be visited by a man is absurd, but it’s better to be stoic.
