We enter December of 2020 with heads held high, and hopes in our hearts. So little time remains of this, er, momentous year!
So let’s see it out with a few more weeks of prompts, and if nothing else in our lives makes sense, then, well, these won’t either.
|Fiona Grey||It’s time for the tomatoes to wake up!||nother Mike|
|Cedar Sanderson||The advent calendar was filled with the most improbable things…||Leigh Kimmel|
|Becky Jones||The turkey soup was wonderful. Everybody said they felt energized and rejuvenated after they had a bowl. A couple of days later you look in the mirror, and you DO look younger.||Cedar Sanderson|
|nother Mike||They were surprised to see a bottle of wine under the Christmas tree. It hadn’t been there last night…||Fiona Grey|
|Leigh Kimmel||There are several works of Victorian didactic poetry that we know only because they were parodied in Alice in Wonderland. It’s two centuries in the future. What present-day songs, movies, etc. are remembered only because a parody of them had more cultural staying power than the original?||Becky Jones|
And if you forgot to send in a prompt, or this whole year has given you a case of the squibs, there are always Spare Prompts. No muss, no fuss, simply stuff and nonsense. Then, let us see in the comments what you made of it!
|Spare||“What do you mean ‘oops’?” asked the patient.|
|Spare||“Your Majesty, of course you should have your offspring truly learn trades. There are many reasons, but here is the big one: Being honest, any given commoner really does not care if a Prince even lives or dies, but anyone who endangers his plumber and thus his conveniences and drains? That’s an Enemy who MUST be defeated.”|
|Spare||When the Groundhog Day virus hit your smartphone, it started calling all your friends in your contact list. Repeatedly!|
|Spare||Looking out of the bus stop through the pouring rain, you saw the blind man about to cross the street in front of the oncoming truck. You…|
|Spare||Of course you will pair your peanut butter, banana, and toast with…|
And that’s all there is of that. Don’t forget to comment early and often with your prompt responses. We’ll be looking forward to it!
