Happy “National Strawberry Parfait Day” (if you’re reading this on June 25th). It’s also “National Catfish Day,” so if you fry up some catfish and have a strawberry parfait for dessert, you can celebrate two things at once.
If you’re looking to celebrate something non-food related, it’s also “National Take Your Dog to Work Day.”
“A celebration of the companionship between canine and human, National Take Your Dog to Work Day hopes to inspire others to adopt from shelters and humane societies.”
Those dog owners who are currently working from home, especially those who adopted a dog during the pandemic, should be able to celebrate with no trouble.
Personally, I’ll be celebrating “Ignoring the Things I Should Do and Reading Instead Day.” I feel like I’ve earned the right to do that, after suffering through both a phone and a computer upgrade this week at work, and making it through with two fully functionally devices and only a small amount of angst.
The garden may also have some demands on my time–how can those weeds grow so fast? I swear the bamboo-shoot from the neighbors yard grew six-feet this week alone. Rounding things off with some time on the elliptical and a shot at today’s writing prompt and random words sounds like a good plan.
Care to join me?
For those of you working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication), if you’re not feeling random, we’d love to hear a bit – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with and would like to share.
If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, I hope either today’s random words or writing prompt will catch your creative fancy.
Prompt: I’m Bored!
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
gargoyle plastic play freak
cough rabbit stone garden
hutch hottest mystery blossom
twisted vast hopeless drama
I look forward to seeing your stories in the comments. If you’re not feeling in the writing mood today, or don’t have time, feel free to post suggestions you might have for future writing prompts. Ideas are always welcome.
Happy writing to all!
