Today’s Daily Prompt:
Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post.
flangiprop: the combination of physical and mental exhaustion brought on by an overabundance of minor life difficulties; too many first world problems.
After his phone died, he ran out of vape juice, and his Facebook was hacked, he succumbed to an evening of flangiprop.
Anan sat on the couch and stared at her spoon sticking out of the empty ice cream pint. She’d eaten the whole thing in silence; her Netflix account was deactivated.
Her dog Nancy methodically scratched his ear at the end of the hallway. The sound lulled Anan into a drowsy meditative state. She leaned over until her head was pillowed on the arm of the couch; flangiprop won this day.
The shadows crept across the floor as the sun set. Nancy cocked his head at Anan’s first soft snores before returning to the urgency of his scratching.
