Today’s prompt word: trick
Yesterday my eyes played a hilarious trick on me.
I scanned the reminder post and wrote down the words: ‘have fun’.
Nobody likes to read depressing posts and to myself I thought what’s going to be fun
about Halloween 2020.
Earlier today I checked to find fellow bloggers writing about the word ‘trick‘.
How did I not see the correct prompt?
Scrolled too fast ~~ PERHAPS ~~ I laughed at myself.
The realization my desire to write energizer bunny battery had been stuck on low
percentage several days coupled with this IMO hilarious error the idiom
‘took the cake’ crossed my mind.

to a number of years with one never publishing their book.
The most hilarious answer I read: “My first book took a ‘year’ to write then I hid
it in the cupboard for ‘5 years‘.”
Pondering the thought – what led me to the group this Halloween – another mind
On a positive note, perhaps this was more of a treat to help me get back on track.

If our eyes trick us into seeing good things, then it is good!
