Fowc with fandango, gratis

Welcome to June 16, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “gratis.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.


That cup of coffee is gratis, said the shop assistant to the lady.

Why thank you mam, she said.

I truly appreciate you!

More people should do kind deeds!

Indeed they should, said the store clerk.

With a smile and a wave, she turned and said to the lady…

Have a terrific day!

You too, the lady said beaming.

She took her steaming hot mug of coffee and walked out of the store.

That cup of coffee might be the only hot drink she’d have today.

Being homeless and on the streets, she never really knew when she would eat or drink.
