Eighty-two words…

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Viable.





I said it was a good idea, she said it wasn’t.

She said it’d lose money, I said it wouldn’t.

I said I thought it through, she said I didn’t.

She said I’d gone bonkers, I said I hadn’t.

I said I was doing it, she said I shouldn’t.

In time, what she said about what I said, and what I said about what she said proved me to be right and her, wrong. 

When she admitted its viability she went viaballistic!

    He said she said, and when it goes “viaballistic,” anything is possible. Well contrived, Keith.

    “Mary Mary quite contrary …” 😉
    This was fun!
    Been a while since I wrote or read much on blogs. Hopefully back in the saddle now!

        Early hibernation? 😉 Been an extra-ordinarily busy summer. Didn’t expect it to be, but so it turned out. Feels like I need another summer NOW! 😉 But, time doth fly … as this one had.
