FOWC with Fandango — Passive


It’s September 9, 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 “passive.”

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.

    I watch my girl
    Do her bit
    While I lie passive
    Letting it

    All fall out Fan……

    Didn’t get to the second verse.
    Knowing yours is a family-friendly site
    and the kiddies would not yet be in bed…….

    Another site talks of domination. Golly gosh
    I would never do this to you Fan…….

    She always tries to make her mark wherever she finds herself because she loves to leave a positive impression of herself on people, but some people see it as being too forward or busybody. One day, she had a talk with herself and asked, what if I decide to be passive?

    Passive people are sometimes seen to be nonchalant, lazy or weak, but that is not always the case. Some may just want to observe their new environment before being active because they do not want a repeat of their past experiences.

    enforced passivity
    at home
    precious sleep
    good weather for it
    spring showers
    cool at night
    cosy under the fur rug
    and wonderful quiet
    unlike the bedlam of
    a hospital ward

    Research demonstrated that what older adults do when they are sitting influences their risk of dementia.

    According to a recent study by the University of Southern California and University of Arizona researchers, those 60 and older who spend a lot of time watching TV or partaking in other passive, sedentary behaviors may be more likely to develop dementia.

    Additionally, their research demonstrated that the risk is reduced for those who engage in activities while seated, such as reading or using a computer.
