The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 6/2020

Fan by John W. Howell © 2020

“I wonder if I should go all fanatic?”

“Fancy that you would even wonder.”

“Well, I was just fantasizing about how to handle the prompt.”

“Linda hill fanbase central here.”

“Oh, come on. I’m not even close fanwise.”

“So what is the prompt? Fantasia?”

“No, nothing of that fantasy caliber. Just use Fan or a word that starts with fan.”

“Fantastic. I know some fan words.”

“I’m sure your’s will be fantabulous.”

“Are you being serious or just doing a fandango on my mind?”

“Let’s just say I’m a superfan.”

“Wait a minute. You just ended a word with fan and without any fanfare either.”

“It’s allowed. Just me displaying my fanciness.”

“I have to say that was fantasmic. Can we stop now?”

“I think we cover the fan world completely .”

“And maybe a little more. I think I am suffering from fantigue.”

“Don’t you mean fatigue, you of the word fancywork?”

“Normally, yes, but this bit has me in fantasyland.”

“How about a drink? A Fanta orange soda, maybe?”

“How about a barley pop on the fantail of my boat?”

“I knew there was a way to get a ride on that fandangle of a boat.”

“Next time, fantanista?”

“Yes, new-fangled one?”

“No fanciful games, just ask.”

“Fine. I mean fan.”

  1. I was looking for this earlier, John. You had me worried. That’s the problem with fans, you know, it’s only a few letters between them and fanatics. Good job with the prompt.

    1. I had set the post for today but for some unknown reason it didn’t go. I had to manually push it. WP gremlins I suspect.

  7. I guess you didn’t need help from the infantry and am rather pleased that you didn’t use any profanity either…
    I think this deserves a Tiffany lamp with fancy fanlights to commemorate your fantastic job 😉

  9. Fantabulous is one of my all time favorite words. The kids are partial to Fanta grape which I love, but only two swallows at a time. Too sweet for me!
