Fandango’s Flashback Friday — April 2

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.

How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.

If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 2nd) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

It Ain’t Over Until the Fat Lady Sings

I know that someday I will die. We all will.

I don’t know when it will be. I don’t know how it will happen. And despite my firm belief that heaven and hell don’t exist, that this is all there is, and that once I die I will cease to exist in every sense, I know that I don’t know that to be a certainty.

I used to give little thought to what happens after death. But now that I’m getting closer and closer to the inevitable, I do wonder about it a little more.

Would I want there to be life after death?

Well, given that, if I’m wrong, I would most likely spend eternity in a rather hot and undesirable venue, I think I’d rather not want there to be an afterlife.

On the other hand, perhaps reincarnation — getting another chance at life on earth — might not be such a bad thing. Of course, it would depend upon what I came back as. Perhaps we come back in the form that most suited us during our lifetime, in which case I might come back as a donkey — as in ass.

No, I think I’m happy with my belief that it’s over when it’s over and there ain’t no more.

I just wonder where I’ll be when the fat lady sings.

Thursday Inspiration — Over You

I was so into you
I could think of nothing else.
I just wanted to be next to you
So I could touch you all over
From head to toe
It was truly magical
For me, anyway

But then you started acting all queer
The times we spent together
Became, well turbulent
Your opinion of us as a couple
Changed dramatically
You called me clingy
And said you were
So over me


Written for Paula Light’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, where the theme is “over.” Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (touch), Word of the Day Challenge (queer), MMA Storytime (turbulent), Your Daily Word Prompt (opinion), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (cling).

This is Paula’s last Thursday Inspiration post. Jim Adams will be taking this prompt over, I assume starting next week.

It’s So Over

8185EF7E-7A87-44AF-94C2-ED3ADC809E04There is a reason that I don’t trust you anymore.

The infatuation I once felt for you has dissipated.

You have no scruples, no conscience, no morals.

And you lie with an incredible flare.

You’ve made it clear to me that I’m the last thing you ever really cared about.

All you care about is you.

I gave you my heart and you ripped it right out of my chest.

So now I’m walking away.

There’s nothing left of me to give to you.

It’s so over.

FOWC with Fandango — Over

FOWCWelcome to November 5, 2018 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 “over.”

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.
