It Scampers

Prompt: Anticipate


Dear Wednesday,

It seems like only yesterday that we parted.

While I always look to Wednesday, whose child is allegedly full of woe (that’s me!), with great anticipation, this week’s prompt is, as it was November 23, 2016, is the concept of anticipation. I think a better word for this week would have been repeat. Nothing wrong with repeats. I watched a rerun of Seinfeld last night, the one where he hangs out in the office building lobby hoping to run into a woman he met, and George introduces us to his alter ego, “Art Vandelay.” Funny– but really, not as sharp as I remembered it. Part of the show’s charm now is its, um, historic value. Look at the size of those cordless phones! Where are they– in a video rental store! Dated, but the humour still sticks.

In the spirit of “repeat” may I present the first of several of my favourite cartoons?

This next is not history repeating itself, but taking two frustrating steps backward:

Finally, I had to go to an oral surgeon yesterday. I am a nervous dental patient so had sedation, and today am swollen and full of prescription drugs. However, at least I did not have this experience:

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Anticipation and Day 23

Prompt: Anticipation


Dear Wednesday,

I anticipate a failure for the fist time in  all my years of taking the NaNoWriMo challenge. But never mind that. I haven’t given up. Miracles happen. I only have 20,000 words to go, in seven days. Oh Jeez.

But join me in my denial of all things negative today and have a look at some of my favourite cartoons this week, the first one of which is a quirky take on theme of the daily prompt, anticipation:

I don’t know why, but this ridiculous cartoon makes me feel better about my own failings:

Ok, and this one is tricky to reproduce, but have a look, and see if it doesn’t click with you somehow, and make you feel kind of sweet and stupid:

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends, and Happy Midweek to everyone else!
