Good for you!

The world has turned grainy of late, in a good way.

With so much to deplore this is really excellent news.

(No, not fake news as is the alt position, but real and sustainable news.)

Grains are a boon to health. Grainy can also, however, mean murky.

So…. back to the deplorable.

In its place

via Daily Prompt: Organize

Some of us are obsessively neat.

Our preeminent desire is to organize. Everything is in its place.

Sometimes, we use an alphabetical system, other times, we employ a color scheme. The object is to put all our objects in a uniform network. We aim to organize to make order from chaos.

It is a noble endeavor.

Daily Prompt: Prickle

(c) Tamara Beck

via Daily Prompt: Prickle

You might say “he’s (like) a thorn in my side” but would you ever describe him as a prickle?

There’s the dillemma of today’s Daily Prompt. Prickle is a word often used to describe a pear, but in these cases its spelling is prickly. The noun form of this word means a spike or needle, a sharp pointed barb.  The more common adjective (prickly) describes something spiky or a person readily offended.

Puts me in a pickle, I must say.
