Power to the People #1LinerWeds

Our #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, works with the best people! She’s with the CIA — Corn Island Archaeology.

They have so much fun, I would love to work with them. If I had an air-conditioned and winter-heated mechano-suit that would do the hard work for me. That’s doable, isn’t it?

ANYWAY, they say things to each other in good-natured jest that would get them poked in the snoot, if they said the same thing to a stranger. For instance, Sara doesn’t remember what she said to trigger this from co-worker Jonas Yates, but she reported his response with delight:

I got that manly sweeper picture from Pixabay, by the way. Free pictures, y’all. The price is right; I like it a lot.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a difficult job with co-workers/work/boss that make it worth it.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hi Marian,

    Context is everything. Imagine Ronald Reagan saying that to Nancy. Now, imagine Dan Akroyd saying that to Jane Curtin.

    I immediately thought of the second context, since you wrote that your daughter was delighted.

      If Jane Curtain had cracked up when he said it, fist-bumped him, and invited her mother to appreciate it, yes.
