Fandango’s One Word Challenge (29 May 2020)

As I please I can travel around,
While the rest of the country’s locked down,
Needn’t follow the rules,
Only made for the fools,
I’m afraid I can smell something brown.

There is a story in the UK which will not die about our Prime Minister’s most senior advisor. While the rest of the country stayed home, he was making roundtrips of hundreds of miles to see family. This was uncovered by the press, and is now out in the open. The advisor has done a lot of squirming, defending himself by saying that technically he was not breaking the law (something which is disputed), and to date, our Prime Minister has staunchly stood by him. The advisor also happens to be one of the chief architects of the UK government’s flagship Brexit (alleged) policy. The story has had top billing here for about the last week.

My offering was inspired both by this story, and by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC), resign, which, frankly, indicates the advisor’s correct course of action.

The Guardian is a very reputable UK newspaper, although was chosen at random to provide the link. This story has been reported by most sources in the UK.

Soon as I saw the prompt today, it sent me scurrying off to YouTube to listen to a wonderful tune I haven’t heard in years. The magic of Motown!

I always thought it would have been brilliant to be part of Smokey Robinson’s band. If you wanted to chat up a girl, the rest of us would have to make do with convincing her that you were a pretty good catch, but if you were in his band you could truthfully say you were a Miracle!

Ben & Jerry’s is an indulgent dessert that should be eaten in moderation. You should not be replacing more than one meal a day with ice cream. We do not consider a pint or a tub of ice cream to be a single serving.

So there!

Fandango’s One Word Challenge (26 May 2020)

By some truly freakish coincidence, I posted about a song from the last Queen album, Innuendo, at 4am (UK) this morning, just a few hours before Fandango’s own One Word Challenge (FOWC) prompt of innuendo went live. Of all the words in the English language…

Anyway, I can’t possibly top my earlier post so if you fancy a listen to a lovely Freddie Mercury song, please just head on over to my last post!

We never have the time to do something properly, but we always have time to do it twice.
