I wake at six and for two hours and I check and check and check.
Now 8:03 and still no prompt. I wonder, what the heck?
Can they not post the prompt so I can get on with my day?
These lazy daily prompters must be laid out in the hay
when they should be here prompting for we still have things to do!
We can’t just sit here all day long to wait and wait for you.
Just slap some words down on your site and we’ll begin to write.
For we’ve been waiting morning hours and others through the night.
In the hours we’ve waited, we have stretched and paced and stomped
and realized the truth: Your prompt is anything but prompt!!!
Finally, at 11:13, today’s prompt was posted, but I had written my blog entry between the hours of six and eight and then watched for the actual prompt to post so I could establish the link. Alas, 5 hours of waiting was enough and today I’ll post to a different drummer! But—I was the first to post!!!! Ta Dah!
The prompt today, when it finally came, was if you had three wishes to grant, who would you grant them to? No necessity for thinking about this. I would grant one each to three women who because of the culture they have grown up in have been sentenced to death for adultery or because they have been raped or because they have stood up to a brutal husband.
