Daily Prompt: Three-Tenths .. to Nothing

Scribble down the first ten words that come to mind. Pick three of them. There’s your post title. Now write!


To make the DP even more challenging,  I decided to ask the youngest and the oldest of my sons to give me five words each. One of them  was still finishing dinner and the other, busy with something at his computer.

The youngest is soooooooooooooooo visual — picking not just the remainder of his chicken, but also four of the five words to inspire me straight from the table.

While the other,  who is 12 years older,  probably wanting to impress, gave me four words I have not used since God knows when — high school?   Anyway … it’s easy to see who answered first.

1.  Air

2. Food

3. Water

4. Vitamins

5. Sugar

6. Hemoglobin

7. Photosynthesis

8. Respiration

9. Excretory

10. Splendid

So, there you go!  Splendid …. I came up with nothing and I pretty much felt like the doll next to my table — with 10 nails on her head.

Other people’s three-tenths may have worked better than mine.  Check them out here : http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/17/daily-prompt-haphazard/.

  1. WOW indeed. Not so much on Daily Prompt but when I saw your Header of the Pinecone, I thought I was looking at my own blog. Unfortunately I have not decided to change my blog’s appearance as it relates to my story. On a positive note, we are one community so great minds think alike ! 🙂
