3 word wednesday

opportunity
quarrel
service

Sometimes while Working in a service profession
Opportunity for stressful resentment can arise
I know you should never quarrel with a paying client
But gee, is it okay to accidently pour shampoo in their eyes?

after reading some of the comments on
3 ww..
I am hoping it is even okay that I participate each week.
I am suddenly realizing this is a prompt for WRITERS... Not just an *average gal* like me,who likes to fool around... Hope I don't get kicked out of the club!
(*keep this in mind when u want to crucify me with criticism, okay?
'cause, I KnOW I don't Know what the heck I am doing!)

You are absolutely most welcome to keep on writing - for 3WW and most importantly for yourself. I think you've a wit and flair that is just super. And you're good about going to others' sites and reading and posting a comment.

This is a open invite to anyone to participate. No matter the skill level. Because the best thing about 3WW is you end up creating something, rather than destroying.

You are so funny! I love this - and I think the answer is: yes.

What is a writer? Someone who has an idea and writes it down with the hope of others reading it. Those who categorise further than this deal in elitist rubbish.
Don't ever think you're not a writer. If you have the will and the determination for the above, you are.
Look forward to reading you again next week on 3ww.

I thought that was dang clever. As far as I'm concerned, you're a writer. So there.

Nice take on the words this week. I'm sure I've been to that hairdresser with the habit of accidentally getting shampoo in your eyes :D

Bone said...

I love your humor, Lucy.

Um, you were joking, right? :o)

Amy said...

what you have written is very clever and a perfect take on the prompt. We all write, that makes us writers. And absolutely, including you.

Angel said...

I think you did a great job. I've worked customer service quite often in my life, and sometimes you really do feel like "pouring shampoo in their eyes."

Lucy,

I don't know the club was exclusive. When I started, I posted off-the-cuff poems and lately, I've been inspired to write prose. I discovered how much I missed writing.

I think the group is pretty good about earning permission to leave more detailed feedback. There is no point in offering unwanted critique.

I'm rough around the edges, but I really do enjoy and crave interaction. Please come by. You'll be warmly received. And you can critique if you want, too. LOL

Big hugs Giggles
