FOWC with Fandango — Somber


It’s November 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 “somber.”

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.

      We love to kill the extraneous, silent letter “u” in so many of your words, like honour or favour. Why, Don, do you folks do that? Do you get paid by the letter?

        I appreciate hearing back from you even if we do get paid by the letter. Thankyou for that. Much of what you do with language makes more sense than what Lisbeth set out to do. I can say that now she has passed on. No we still use honour etc. honor makes better sense. See.? I’m getting a red line under honour but not honor……Why not extrayneeus” or Matthyoos ? More sense hey?…..

          You always almost make sense, Don.

    i don’t know why they do it don
    its a sombre time for all
    when a good kick up the arse
    my friend
    ends up as a donkey in a stall
