FOWC with Fandango — Patronize


It’s October 28, 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 “patronize.”

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.

    men have always traditionally
    patronised women
    things have changed now
    the girls are running rings
    academically round the boys
    there have been one or two enlightened men
    in history who have recognised the superior worth of women
    geoffrey chaucer the father of english literature being one of them
    600 years ago he said

    “What is better than wisdom? Woman.
    And what is better than a good woman? Nothing”

    Go Geoffrey !

    Trixxie and Lexxie are hussy buddies. Good friends of FCS


    I patronize the business
    Run by Lex and Trix
    Happy doing business
    Happy learning tricks

    No doggy style Fan. Beginners stuff says Lex……

    They hit me with the ‘Good Ex ‘ position.
    I’d never heard of it. You Fan?……..

    Lex swears by this Dr Donna Oriouo. PhD in sex. She must be good. Lex only touches high-class stuff…….

    Donna (Dr) says “There’s an intense coming together that creates serious intimacy” Donna was right Fan……

    Booked in for next ‘serious intimacy’ session.
    ‘The Pretzel Dip’. Wish me luck Fan……the girls workouts are exhausting

      … Hornsby featured on the [Bonnie Raitt] track

      Produced by Don Was, the track featured ‘The Way it Is’ singer Bruce Hornsby on the piano. Although he wasn’t credited as a featured artist, the song’s piano accompaniment has long been associated with him, and he has performed the song many times on stage. *Credit where credit is due

    I hate people who patronize me because I am blind, and they somehow think that just because I am blind, it means I can’t think for myself either. So annoying!
