Monday Musings #99

The purpose of this blog is to help writers with their work, to be museful or perhaps instrumental in unclogging thoughts. To this end, I am providing a daily question, beginning sentence, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”

Question: Do you think age has anything to do with being rational?

Sentence: For six months the scam had been going well, then along came Sam Crank.

Paragraph: My heart never knew what hit it. One day I was riding bus #43 down Beech Street, like always, and wham! – I saw him. My true love. Walking on the sidewalk, like an ordinary man. I may not have known his name or where he was from or anything else about him, but I damn sure knew he was meant for me. So, totally out of character, impulsively, I pulled on the stop line and rushed to the front of the bus, tapping my fingers impatiently and keeping my eyes riveted on him. By the time we drew to the curb, my adrenalin was pumping. When the door opened, I jumped to the sidewalk and knocked him over…That was merely my mind’s scenario and not what happened at all.

Prompt: Name two daffy friends you rely on to keep you sane.

Word of the Day: mansuetude n : the quality or state of being gentle : MEEKNESS, TAMENESS (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
