FOWC with Fandango — Ornery


It’s May 24, 2022. Welcome 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 “ornery.”

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. Show them some love.

    Would stubbornly (and mischievously) carrying my towel around all day tomorrow in defiance of ordinary norms cause some to think me ornery?

    Ornery doesn’t really quite get there, but I’m going to share something I heard this morning. I “know what a terrible history” we have. But, sometimes, I come across information that hits me again. There’s probably a way to clip a YouTube video, but I haven’t learned it. So,I’ll transcribe. This made me outright cry. I was calling them monsters (et cetera).

    Man on stage: “Are you Rabbi Telisken?”


    Rabbi: … the issue, I think, with Billie Graham, was … when Graham visited Russia and gave a speech in a church telling everybody in the church, Your job is to be good workers for the state. ………….

    One other request, if anybody can help me on this; I’m serving as an adviser to a Jewish museum, and one of the things we’re working on is what has been the impact of Judaism on the world. I remember once reading somewhere, and I have not been able to find documentary evidence, that obviously slave owners wanted their slaves to be Christians but that — I remember reading this I haven’t seen evidence of it — that they actually had bibles printed up for slaves in which the Bible was printed but the book of Exodus was left out.

    Man on stage: Yeah.


    Sounds of exasperation in the audience.
