Fandango’s One Word Challenge 4/22/21

Today’s word is “monotonous.”


She got up, grabbed a coffee, and turned on the news. The trending topics were partisanship, racism, climate change, and equity.
Sophie remembered her grandmother watching daily soap operas. She could visit Grandma twice a month, and her ‘stories’ never changed.
The same cast, the same troubles, and the same solutions.
But, soap operas ran, at most, for an hour and took weekends off.
The ‘news’ was becoming even more monotonous.
She switched off the TV and went outdoors, talked with her neighbors, and reflected on her own opinions.
Perhaps, she’d volunteer, write a letter, or cook a new recipe?
The possibilities were endless.

When she tuned into the News the following week, she found nothing had changed.
Soap operas were never going make sense to her.

    My mum always watches the soaps and I never get it either but then I watch wrestling each week. Which means I watch a soap opera with a little fighting mixed in so I should get it really lol

    Good story, Susan!

        My mum watches Hobly City and Casualty. I think some like Emmerdale and Eastenders restarted too.

    I used to watch soap operas but stopped because I was fed up with the same storylines and I couldn’t stomach the new ones.

    I never watched soap operas – too much drama for me!

Tell me something good...
