Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
This month the words/prompts are supplied by Cindi and can be found here
This week's words/prompts are:
"You have the ability to mentally hear the honest answer to any question just by looking at the person and thinking the question. It was all fun and games until you looked in the mirror and asked a question you shouldn't have. What was the answer?"
Here was my answer:
"Why would you even think to ask such a stupid question? Of course it is all your fault. No one forced you to sit for hours scrolling around the internet. No one forced you to eat family sized blocks of chocolate several times a week. You did that to yourself, all the while promising to be good the next day. Now put your shoes on and go for a long walk!"
As I bent to tie my laces, the cruel truth continued, "and stop buying those delicious cinnamon scrolls too."
And as I closed the front door behind me, another faint reminder, "you could stand to do a bit more vacuuming around here too."
