Day 19: novel

I don’t have a novel in me. A story or two for sure. But not a novel.

Day 18: tire

Tire or Tyre? In the US it is the former, in RoW it is the latter … but we now know that the source of the word is a UK site, so maybe the ‘tire’ is more to do with ‘tired’.

I never tire of diving down these-rabbit holes 🥁

Day 17: barrel

The barrel is used in wine making, distilling and brewing with good and bad results.

Too much consumption of the resultant elixir might result in the participant ending up ‘in the barrel'.

The barrel is the circle of life.

I wonder if someone will set up a mastodon franchise or even cooperative model.

You might think I have stopped playing MicroBlog Vember because leave is the day 14 prompt and in New Zealand we are already on day 15, but no prompt 🙁

Day 13: adjust

‘Do Not Adjust Your Set’ was short lived as a UK TV program but definitely punched above it’s weight if you measure impact on a British comedy.

Day 12: suspicion

Just for a short while I had this suspicion that @jean had forgotten to generate today’s prompt because it came later in the day than I have been used to.

Day 11: display

The display on the TV is definitely in need of an upgrade. I think I’m spoiled by the quality of the display on my computer. Or is it just aging eyes?

Day 10: minister

If I have it right, the original meaning of ‘minister’ derives from middle english meaning “attendant, servant, assistant ….”

Maybe modern ‘ministers’ should consider that more and stop assuming they are leaders.
