F is for Fun

Earlier today I began thinking about which 'f' word I wanted to choose.

Fabulous, I thought, and I was fuelled into a furiously frisky frenzy. So many flipping fantastic words flying around inside my noddle.

After frittering away fifty minutes frequenting my dictionary, I became frightened this activity would simply leave me a fraught, frustrated and fruitless figure.  I felt I had come to a full stop and considered fetching my friend, Helen Baggott, who is the judge for the free-entry Full Stop competition

Then I remembered it was Friday.  Helen would be at the fish and chip shop where she chats up the fella with the frier in his fingers.

It was then I realised fear was holding me back from making a decision.

I chose freedom by forcing myself to face up to it. 

I'd had fun in making a selection but once the final countdown had begun, that was it.

Finito.


What would you usually be doing on a Friday if you weren't busy with the A-Z challenge?

  2. I was almost too scared to read your F word post...and how clever to use forty f-words. It's almost like you flanned it, I mean planned it.

  3. Glad I'm not the only one having trouble choosing which word to use for each letter. Hopefully got it sorted now but sure to change my mind on one or two. Frustrating would be the one for me as all the faffing about costs time.
