FOWC with Fandango — Counterproductive


It’s July 25, 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 “counterproductive.”

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.

    allowing anyone
    to join a professional choir
    without an audition
    is counterproductive
    to the success of a performance
    is this the new woke politically correct
    inclusive progressive way of things?

    my china would like to join the corps de ballet
    he has two left feet and cannot dance
    but he has always wanted to
    good enough reason it seems

    This word was too big
    For my brain to cope
    I did have a try though
    But brain said no hope

    Yes Fan. I’m disappointed with my brain……

    When my oldest son was two, and we had moved to a new city, I took him for a regular visit to select a pediatric doctor. Again, he was two. He stood on a chair to better see something that was up on a wall. The doctor decided to suggest medication for ADHD. In my seeing this as a bizarre reaction to a toddler being curious, I refused. The doctor added that there was supposed to be a reason for a kid visiting a doctor, another “reason” to prescribe. No. We didn’t go back. It seems to me that when I was a child I went for yearly “check-ups” and there didn’t need to be another reason. When this same son was fifth-grade age, he met a child who was on such medication. This kid was pretty normal until about noon each day, when he was scheduled to take his ADHD medication. He took his pill and became a basket case for the rest of the day. Therefore, I even question the idea that there is “short-term” benefit for little children. (I have no idea if it’s helpful to college students, without any diagnosis, just studying for finals.)
