FOWC with Fandango — Oil

FOWCWelcome to April 23, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “oil.”

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. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

Weekend Writing Prompt — Totally Exonerated

BA715E3A-8972-4FB5-A0C0-F58E7EEE02E1“What is all this hoopla over the Mueller Report?” Albert asked. “The Attorney General totally exonerated Trump. No collusion, no obstruction.”

“You are such an idiot,” I said. “It’s a good thing we’re not at my place or I’d take an egg and smash it on your head.”

“You’re just longing to see Trump taken down,” Albert said.

“You’re right,” I admitted. “He’s trying to turn our democracy into an autocracy. He’s destroying the environment, and he thinks he’s above the law. Doesn’t any of that annoy you?”

“Actually I’m impressed by him.”

“With lemmings like you, Albert, there’s little hope left for America.”
