FOWC with Fandango — Foist


It’s September 10, 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 “foist.”

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.

    Good heavens. First again….


    To start there was invented
    First generation FOIST
    Improvements made with GOIST upgrade
    Resulted in the HOIST

    F, G, H true upgrade progression fashion…..

    We had a foist to begin with Fan……

        You don’t remember the ‘goist’?….Was only a transitory one until the final ‘hoist’ came on the market……

    i’m glad i have not had royalty foisted
    upon me
    all that standing around in heavy velvet robes
    shaking millions of hands
    waving and smiling

    a cat may look at a king
    but i can’t get my cat (being an aussie cat)
    to do it

    The first printed version of the idiom a cat may look at a king was published in 1562, in The Proverbs And Epigrams Of John Heywood, “What, a cat may look on a king, ye know!” It is almost certain that the proverb existed in oral tradition long before it was written down.

      Some cats have higher statuses than kings, perhaps?

    You cannot foist trust on someone that has refused to let go of the ugly experience he/she had in the past that caused them to loose trust in people.

    People really need to know that their ugly experiences with a person in the past does not mean everyone is the same.
