WWP #248 – Capricious Capricieuse

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.  Always a thank you to Sammi for hosting.  The term in French has been heard a time or two within my family, ergo… my first line 😉

wk 248 capricious


Arrête de faire ta capricieuse!

What? Capricious? Me? Wherever did you get that notion?

You don’t know what you want.

I DO know what I want!

No.  You change your mind like the wind changes direction with no rhyme or reason.

So? Keeps me interesting!

No. It means you’re mercurial.

Don’t care.

You exhaust me.

    • I think someone who is too capricious is tiresome after a while. It’s nice to know where you are going but still be willing to be flexible (I like to think I have my moments…)

  1. Q

    The only thing I know of capricious is that mozzarella and tomato dish. Oh wait, no that’s not it at all. Never mind, I knew nothing of the word until you introduced it to me in . . what? In 55 words?No way!

    And you did so with such an artistic flair.

  2. Dear Dale,

    Capricious isn’t a bad thing. To me it says you’re flexible. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 😉 Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape. Semper Gumby. (Okay so maybe capricious has a different connotation.) At any rate, you wrote your 55 words with your usual capricious flare. 😀

    Shalom and lotsa heart-felt hugs,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      I happen to agree with your story. I am sure there are those who like to change their minds at whim for no good reason – they are the negative connotation – but that is not our flexible case 😉

      Shalom and lotsa heart-day love,

  3. The world would be a duller place without capriciousness. I took at look at the online dictionary and it said “whimsical”, another lovely word. You’re so good at these exchanges of views between a pair of people that I always believe they truly happened!

    • I could not agree more! I, too, looked online (I always do for these challenges, hoping to find a different angle 😉 ) and yes, whimsical is such a lovely version. Thank you! I love that they come across this way. I have heard it in French but not necessarily (or maybe, my memory likes to remember what it wants) directed at me!
