FOWC with Fandango — Flummoxed


It’s January 29, 2023. 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 “flummoxed.”

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.

    Will I or won’t I comment, I could on one hand but then again the time to comment and I must think of poor Fandango. Perhaps I should, maybe….I don’t know…I’ll have to think about it 🙂

    I’m flummoxed, flummoxed I tell you, as to why downloading two Amazon apps on my iPad caused my iPad keyboard to be useless.

      Crap… my video on my iPad camera won’t work either. (I’m using my phone to type this.)

        Fixed? Yes, after turning the whole thing off and restarting. Whew.

        Nothing was corrected by downloading the newest software version for the whole device, before I tried shutting off the entire dealeo and restarting.

        That is weird.

      Have you figured out why or are you still flummoxed?

        I thought I answered this last night, but it hasn’t appeared. So…

        I really don’t know “why” — or how come — but I additionally removed the regular Amazon app (I’ve only ever used the web site and not the app, anyway, to order anything). I forgot to mention this decision, which I executed before I had shut off the device and started the iPad again.

        All three of my responding actions might have been necessary before the things I observed could go back to normal. I hope there isn’t still something else that was messed up (that I didn’t see yet). Currently, I’m trusting it’s “fixed.” (While I do not actually trust the computer world.)

          I use the Amazon app and have no problem with it or having it affect my other apps.

    It’s baffling the way it just rolls off the tongue isn’t it?
    Perplexing almost!
    What a lovely word – flummoxed is.
