FOWC with Fandango — Petty


It’s September 22, 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 “petty.”

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.

Weekend Writing Prompt — Mean and Nasty

DC7FC268-2652-47A3-8250-5FCE3779148FGo ahead and talk to me that way.
Be mean and nasty.
You call me names.
You yell at me.
You tell me I’m worthless.
I’ve heard it all before.
Your barbs.
Your taunts.
You try so hard to put me down.
To make me feel bad about myself.
You ridicule me.
You attempt to make me feel stupid.
You talk to me that way in front of our friends.
As if demeaning me around them makes you look better.
But you know what?
It makes you look small.
It makes you look petty.
And I am now impervious.

(Exactly 99 words)
