A New Word #1LinerWednesday

#4 Daughter (the amazing Sara Marian) and I love to watch Forged in Fire, because we’re fascinated by Wil Willis’s biceps — er, I mean bladesmithing.

The forge is blazing hot, and sometimes the contestants get so overheated, they lose track of what they’re doing or the best way to do it, which is painful to see.

This guy, though, was doing an out-of-forge interview bit, so there’s no excuse for him to say:

I’m running out of time, so I have to quench this blade fastfully.

Fastfully is our new word. We have to leave fastfully, if we don’t want to be late. Cook supper fastfully; I’m starving.

Thank you, guy whose name I can’t remember. I don’t think he won that competition. I think he was eliminated fastfully.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Something must be done quickly.



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.

    There are some neologisms you just have to smack your forehead about and say, “I should have invented this one!”

    This wasn’t one of those. 🙂
