The Midweek Word-prompt over on our other site https://weeklyprompts.com is Credibility and was chosen by GC and obviously not with me in mind!
To be perfectly honest with you, I found this word-prompt a tricky one to write about, so I’m running with the antonym instead.
Incredible – What do I find incredible? Well, for starters it’s incredible that I can’t think of anything to say; for once I’m lost for words and that itself is pretty incredible!
On the other hand… Scuppered Plans – Yesterday (Tuesday) the weather was lovely, a typical autumn day, sunny, not too chilly and perfect for the day I had planned which was to go for a drive and chase photo opportunities. Incredibly I stayed home instead and wasted a whole day waiting for parcels that weren’t even mine! Even more incredible is that the daughter received texts to say there was no one home and the parcels had been returned to the Depot. Upping the ante on this word, more incredibly than before is that she actually asked if I’d gone out after I had promised to stay home!
An additional incredibility (I’m getting good at this) is that the video doorbell had lost it WiFi connection. Really? Yes, it really had, and that’s not the worst thing that happened yesterday. The worst incredible happening was that I was unable to reconnect it!
The instructions show a picture of the doorbell and point to a switch on the side with an instruction to press on the side of the unit. I found it to be an incredible instruction (in other words Dumb) because my doorbell does not have a switch on the side!
So, I gave up and today (Wednesday) I will reluctantly call for the tech guy and incredibly, even though though the system isn’t a year old I am guessing I will have to pay for the reconnection!
So, (oops, sorry Peter) I think it’s incredible that I found some credible drivel to write about, let alone excel in the use of repeated words
by including the word incredible several times, I think I could pass this as credibility don’t you?
FOOTNOTE: Since the publication of this post, I remembered I had installed an access point for the door, mainly as a safeguard because the door is a distance from the router. On investigation I noticed the lights were out, a re-boot of the access point and the doorbell was working again. I had previously re-booted the router but had completely forgotten about the access point! 😀
