Voice on Tape: “Good morning. Your mission, Lydia, should you decide to accept it, is…
Pick a random word and do Google image search on it. Check out the eleventh picture it brings up. Write about whatever that image brings to mind.
As usual, should you be captured or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your existence. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Lydia.”
Telling as it may be of my opinion of today’s prompt, I google the images for the word obscure. The eleventh image is… I’m not sure, but possibly a horror film poster. You would have to kill me and drag me into the theater post mortem to see this gem. Not my style at all. I think about the writing possibilities, and move on by trying another word. I’m cheating I suppose, but who’s going to tell?
I am dissatisfied, and that is the second word I search. The eleventh image for dissatisfied is an ad for an accountant in the uk. (He looks nothing like my imaginary boyfriend, Colin.)
I don’t want to prolong this assignment, but prolong is the third word I try. It’s an automotive lubricant. My car isn’t active that way, so it won’t need lubricant.
Uninspired is a poster with a smattering of profanity about bad art. I can’t use that.
Smattering conjures an image of Dave Matthews with a caption about a New York concert and a smattering of misdemeanors.
Tumult is a beverage- beer perhaps? I never drink beer. I feel I’ve lost all artistry today.
I google artistry, and find it’s a skincare line with an entitled looking haughty model in the ads. I may be enticed to try the products, but not to write about it.
As mutually enticed as the blithe cat and spirited goldfish are in this photo, I am not enticed to write about their doomed relationship.
Blythe is a super creepy hipster doll who might serve well as my muse, or give me nightmares… Next!
Muse is a rock band. I prefer jazz.
The eleventh image of eleven words, and I’m left with nothing to write about. 11 looks the same upside down, and sideways it’s an equal sign. That must mean something in math-ish, but I’m not fluent so I give up. I won’t be tagging Mensa on this post.
