Daily Word Salad

I told you so,” Alan said

“What did you tell me?” Michelle asked, a piquant expression on her face.

I’m sensing a bit of cognitive dissonance on your part, Michelle,” Alan said. “I’m sorry if my comment sounded to you like an imposition.”

“What are you talking about, Alan?” Michelle asked. “You’re making no sense at all.”

“Well aren’t you a piece of work today,” Alan said. “You brag about how syncopated you can be, but if you ask me, you’re off-beat.”

“I’m sorry, Alan, but I have no clue what you’re referring to,” Michelle said. “Are you drunk? High?”

“Blame it on the damn sea lion, Michelle,” Alan said. “Surely that will seal the deal.”

“Seriously, Alan, you’re spouting word salad,” Michelle said. “Go lie down and sleep off whatever demons have infected you today.”


Written for these daily prompts: My Vivid Blog (I told you so), Word of the Day Challenge (piquant), E.M.’s Random Word Prompt (dissonance), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (imposition), The Daily Spur (piece), Hour Daily Word Prompt (syncopate), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (sea lion).

I’m sorry for this nonsensical post, but these prompts reminded me of a tossed word salad. But the word “syncopate” made me recall a theme song used by a local, DC-area television station many years ago for its nightly late movie, so maybe you’ll forgive my word salad post if you enjoy “The Syncopated Clock.”

    Some days are just like that, and most of them are Mondays, for some reason.
