The prompt, should you choose to accept it, is to write something inspired by a breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, coffee, snack eaten out, at the local diner, cafe, restaurant, fast food joint, even, if you wish, camp site.
I mean this prompt to be as broad as a glass door held open by a very polite person--(you will note that in my own politeness, I make no reference to tall stacks, wideness, and hips.) You should feel free to write from the perspective of diner, server, cook, table, plate, pancake. If you want to write with a forked tongue, in other words, go ahead! If you want to just go sit in a cafe and write whatever comes to mind, that's okay too. (Just, maybe, smear some ketchup on your screen.)
I mainly want you to have fun (or be deadly serious) with this prompt, but I also chose it because I had some old photos and pics that seemed to go with it. These are intended primarily to be thought-provoking, with no mandate to use, but please do feel free to use one if you wish (with proper attribution.) (The top one is a pencil sketch I drew on a restaurant paper tablecloth--yes, the service was a bit slow, and yes, I left it there.)
In the spirit of adventuring together, please try to write something new. Also, please drop by for a drink, bite, read, at the spots of your fellow bloggers!
I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Finally, finally, I want to write a very brief word about my personal icon, Terry Pratchett, who died this week. I almost changed this prompt to be about him, but that seemed unfair since I know many of you were probably not lucky enough to have lived with his books in print and on tape for years and years, nearly 24/7--also, I honestly felt too sad about his death to think of a timely prompt. I did want to mention a couple of quotes of his. They are not necessarily my favorites, as not particularly funny--yet good ones to remember I think----"evil begins when you begin to treat people as things," and "so much universe, so little time," Thanks.
