One-Liner Wednesday — Impeachable Offenses

“President Trump committed impeachable offenses and I’m pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him.”

Mitch McConnell, United States Senate Majority Leader

That’s right, Mitch McConnell (aka The Grim Reaper, aka Moscow Mitch) has finally found his balls and has publicly split with with Donald Trump after four years of having his lips firmly planted on Trump’s butt.

Well, Mitch, all I can say is way too little and way, way too late.

FOWC with Fandango — Split

FOWCWelcome to June 6, 2020 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 “split.”

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.

Darkest Before the Dawn

“What does that have to do with the price of eggs?” Doris asked her husband.

“Well, I’m just saying that we have your aunt’s funeral later today and I know how much she meant to you,” George responded. “So I just wanted to say some encouraging words to make you feel better.”

“By throwing out a meaningless platitude? Really, George?” Doris said.

“Never mind. Did you remember to pick up my suit from the cleaners?” George asked. “Plus your black funeral dress?”

“I did, but I’m not going to wear that boring black dress,” Doris said. “I’m going to wear that green, shimmery dress. It’s so much more chic.”

That’s rather bold of you, don’t you think? This isn’t a party, you know, it’s a funeral,” George said. “Wearing a party dress to a funeral would be adding insult to injury.”

“Yet another platitude, George? Well, I’m wearing that green dress nonetheless,” Doris said. “I’m sick of going to funerals, so let’s show up and split early and you can take me dancing at the club, where we can dance until dawn.”
