In response to the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/embrace-the-ick/
Think of something that truly repulses you. Hold that thought until your skin squirms. Now, write a glowing puff piece about its amazing merits.
Repulses me, eh? The person who watches The Walking Dead while eating her supper (dinner, whatever)? Ok. Well, I don’t particularly like spiders. Or raisins. Or FOX “News”. (I don’t have a picture of any of them – surprisingly enough).
I think, however, repulse is too strong a word for my feelings about these things. I can’t really say any of these repulses me, I just don’t like being in the same room with them. Yes, even raisins. I mean, really…what monster thought carrot cake and cinnamon buns had to have raisins in them??
But, I know there are many merits to spiders and raisins – I would list them here, but you can look them up. That’s why we have the Internet. No merits to Fox “News” though. Oh, wait! They are great fodder for Jon Stewart every day. Let that be the lesson here. There are merits to all things that make skin squirm if you think hard enough!
Was this a puffy enough piece? Here is a picture of a kitty to make it all better.
