The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 14/2020

Wire by John W. Howell © 2020

“Wire as a noun?”

“Excuse me? Oh, It’s the Saturday mind thump again.”

“Not a mind thump. It’s a prompt.”

“Thump, prompt all the same to me.”

“That’s ’cause you don’t write.”

“Now, that’s not true.”

“What was the last thing you wrote?”

“A check for that last round of your WIP edit.”

“Very funny. Help me with this.”

“Okay. The noun use of wire would be like, “We need use number 12 wire for the house electricity.”‘

“How about a verb?”

“To wire the house will cost $10,000.”

“Adjective?”

“Our money looks like wire.”

“Adverb?”

“Spending money on wirely things has to take priority.”

“Wait. Are you trying to tell me something?”

“You think?”

“We need to wire the house.”

“Bingo.”

“So, the prompt is done.”

“I think it is. So is our bank account.”

“To wire or not to wire, that is the question.”

“Do you like to roast marshmallows?”

“Of course. What does that have to do with wire?”

“To not wire, you may be able to roast them without leaving your bed.”

“Okay. I get it. Let’s wire.”

“Good decision.”

“With my feet to the fire.”

“So to speak.”

    It’s always wise to stay clear of wiring problems–especially electrical ones. Great job on the prompt, John.

    1. Thank you, Deborah. I always try to keep readers guessing. Makes it more fun. (for me too cause I have to figure out the twist.)

  19. A healthy dose of fear and respect for the power of electricity, is a sign of wisdom.
