“My tolerance for plonkers is extremely low today. I used to have some immunity built up, but obviously there is a new strain out there.” ~ unknown.
The Midweek Word-prompt over on Weekly Prompts the site I share with my partner GC is spontaneity and was written by GC.
Gerry has not been very well lately, therefore I wasn’t expecting him to write the Wednesday prompt, so I wrote a back-up prompt and chose the word Plonker. Then I wrote my response from Nan’s Farm.
I chose Plonker because I frequently use this British word, though usually under my breath and sometimes directed at GC! 😀
I suppose I ought to be spontaneous and write another response, but I’ve done enough writing this week, so I’m going to stick with what I’ve got, though seeing as I’ve written half a page already I’m making a cut and leaving it at this.
I almost became a prize plonker when writing the back up prompt for Weekly Prompts. As soon as I’d typed ‘Tell us about your plonking experiences‘, I began to question whether plonking was an actual word, so I looked it up.
Let’s just say I am very relieved that I didn’t use that phrase, and perhaps more so when I was reminded that our normal practice on Weekly Prompts is to encourage the use of photographs and videos, imagine what a splash that would have made! 😱 I wouldn’t advise being too curious about the unfortunate definition of plonking, but for those who are, the footnote tells all.
