Day 27

Prompts:

3WW- foolish, mercy, relish
NaPoWriMo- least favorite words (nincompoop, louse, twerp)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mr. Nincompoop

As a child, momma always told him,
“Don’t be foolish in life’s decisions,
practice mercy, and relish each day.”

By the time he turned thirty,
he was labeled Mr. Nincompoop,
an unforgiving louse, and bilious twerp.

Why didn’t he listen to his momma?

Yeah, every kid should listen to their Momma!

Momma knows best. Maybe it's not too late to change.

Nincompoop is such a great word. It always makes me laugh, poor slob, why didn't he listen to momma?

Christine said it right LOL

So he bucks the trend, ignores his mother and becomes an individual we can write about. We don't need many but a few help us in our writing.

oldegg- Crazy characters are the best... = )

Laurie, a good take on the three words and a nice sevenling as well. Bilious is a great word. Thanks.
