The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 6/19

Fab by John W. Howell © 2019

“So what is the prompt this week?”

“Fab.”

“What’s fab?”

“The prompt is fab.”

“I’m sure it is. Tell me the prompt.”

“Fab is the prompt.”

“You doing a Yoda impersonation?”

“No why?”

“To quote ‘Fab is the prompt.’ We all get the prompt is fab, exciting, unique even. The prompt is fab. We’ll give it to you. Now, what is the prompt?”

“You have me down to my last nerve. Let me try to explain this way. The word fab is the prompt.”

“Oh, I get it. Fab is the prompt. So what are you going to do with it?”

“Anymore than we’ve already done? I think we killed it.”

“That’s fab. I think we killed it too. That reminds me.”

“Reminds you of what?”

“Fab Four.”

“Please.”

“Fab detergent.”

“No longer on the market.”

“Fab ra jay.”

“No such thing.”

“Fab a lous.”

“Wrong again.”

“fab er ic.”

“Nope.”

“Fab ra cate.”

“Way off.”

“Now I think we really killed it.”

“Fab job.”

“You too.”

“Thanks.”

      1. I remember buying little boxes of it at the laundromat. Waiting for laundry with only an Organic Chemistry text (no iPhone 😳 ) to help pass the time.

    1. Thank you, Dale. In school my brain was always the subject of Teacher’s comments like, “Interesting concept but a little off track.” Never learned to color inside the lines. 😊
