Fuckin’ Friday Prompt #23

Every time I come up with a good metaphor I think of Jack Nicholson’s line in As Good As It Gets: “People who talk in metaphors oughta shampoo my crotch.” But sometimes one is so apt that I just can’t help it.

So I keep getting harassed by bees. Maybe it’s just because it’s nesting season or some shit. Maybe I’m just too sweet. I’ve also been going through some shit with my ex, whose name actually means “Honey Bee”.

So today, while Just an hour after having seen my ex, I was having a rather cowardly standoff with a particularly bothersome bee who wouldn’t get off my soda bottle. And this line struck me.

So here is your Fuckin’ Friday writing prompt for the week. It’s an opening line. Use it well, friends:

At some point you just have to let the bee sting you so it’ll leave you alone.

So there it is. A prompt and an insight into personal baggage. Have at it!

As always, send us what you come up with and send it in for a chance to be featured.

Happy writing!

-Matt
