A few days ago, the Mister was reading a Sports Illustrated piece about the Best Names of Recruiting Class 2017 (read: unusual to fantastical.)
He got to Zacchaeus, and it triggered a childhood memory of a Sunday School song from long ago. A song that was a perennial favorite throughout my religious upbringing. A song that I proceeded to sing.
“Zacchaeus was a wee little man,
And a wee little man was he
He climbed up in a sycamore tree
For the Lord he wanted to see… “
It was not, however; endearing for my son… he of not attending Vacation Bible School – an apparent shortfall in my parenting.
His response to my impromptu recital was to shut me down.
“Mom?” You need to stop that right now.”
Try to provide the guy with a little culture, a little spiritual guidance and this is the thanks I get.
“The only thing better than singing is more singing.” Ella Fitzgerald
This week’s word is:
What to do…
Using “sing” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
