Writing prompt of the day:
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - You get some incredibly, amazingly, wonderfully fantastic news. What’s the first thing you do?

How do you celebrate?  My first instinct would be to make a loud, joyous exclamation and maybe break into a dance.  And then I would give thanks – nothing formal like a real prayer, just a shouted THANK YOU into the aether.  If there were folks around me [such as at work], I’d be telling them.  If I was home alone, I would pick up the phone and call on of my two close friends and babble at them.  I would text my son and my daughter – and follow up with a phone call if they were available.  Then I would post on social media. 

Now what would qualify as “incredibly, amazingly, wonderfully fantastic news “?  Something wonderful happening for someone that I love.  Finding out that I am 100% hale and hearty.  Hearing “I love you” from someone I love.  Winning the lottery.  

Or after you get the good news, do you wait for the other shoe to drop?


Like when you know you’ll pay for a three day weekend with a four day week that feels much longer than the normal five day work week?
