Who’s Your Daddy?

“Seriously?” Leah said. “I’m doing everything I can to stay calm. You’re such a misogynist, Bill. When are you going to realize that men and women are equal? We are not here for your pleasure. You’re no better than a horny rabbit, for crissake.”

“Didn’t you read your Bible, Leah? God created Eve to, um, service Adam,” Bill said. “Women were put here for man’s amusement.”

“Oh my God, you are the most insincere man I have ever encountered,” Leah exclaimed. “If you’re lucky, a stiff breeze will come along and flow between your ears and clear that perverted mist from your brain.”

“You are such a militant feminist, Leah,” Bill said. “Let me give you some free advice. There’s no scientific evidence to support your feminist notion that women and men are physical or emotional equals.”

“Thanks for the gratis advice, which is worth the price I paid,” Leah said. “But since it appears that you’re going to sustain this male chauvinistic attitude, I’m outta here.”


Since I took the day off from blogging yesterday, I combined yesterday’s prompts and today’s. Word of the Day Challenge (daddy & equal), The Daily Spur (calm & support), Ragtag Daily Prompt (rabbit & breeze), Your Daily Word Prompt (insincere & sustain), and Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (gratis & mist).

FOWC with Fandango — Mist

FOWCWelcome to June 17, 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 “mist.”

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.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might 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. You will marvel at their creativity.

Weekend Writing Prompt — Oblivious

B9BC02A6-835E-4EAB-8A92-D9F2BC44DA9FDo you remember that night?

I think it was on the 10th.

Everyone in the room turned to the door

And watched her slowly sashay across the floor

Believing it was her moment to shine,

She glanced around the room

And seeing everyone looking at her,

Flashed a gratuitous smile, as phony as she is.

Totally oblivious to the glacial stares

From all the other women who were there.

(Exactly 66 words)
