Word Prompt



I frankly love this word so it’s a pleasure to insert it into this little exchange. Thank you, Sammi, for hosting this party weekly.

A Question of Balance

What are you doing?


Not dilly-dallying?

Could be.

You are definitely doing nothing.

So? What of it?

It is lazy and you’re wasting away the day.

I disagree. It is called creating balance. One cannot always be doing.

It is wrong.

Nay, it is necessary. Come sit down and lollygag with me. You’ll see. You’ll be more productive later.
