Wordplay Thursday #74

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

Here’s a writing prompt for you.  It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank. You can use one word or several. Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want. The point is to get the creative juices flowing. And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you. Try coming up with at least five things.

“Their first date went quicker than _____.”

I’ll give you an example to get you started:

“Their first date went quicker than a hiccup.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments. Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating. It’s a family show, after all!

SHOUT OUT!

Thanks to Ken Matthiesen, Donna Kossow, Barney Coulter, Cathy, Michael Klenda, Michael P. Baker, Andrew Clayton, Janet Goodman, Willa Thompson and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #73 (read it here)! Great job!
