Rare Pairs Prompt #6

More words? Any troubles? Need some prompts? I am here to help where I can!

Here's the next 'long' prompt:

Borrowing the other's clothes

Need a short prompt or two? Give me some numbers between 1 and 150 and I'll give you some (hopefully) inspirational words. Note: some of these may be suggestive, but you don't have to use them that way, OR you may ask me for another word to replace the one/s you don't like, and I'll find you something that's more general.

The next long prompt will be in two days time, but in the meantime if you need anything else, comment here and I'll reply as soon as I can!

It's a Monday kind of Monday

Can I just tell you that the song that came up in my car this morning when I asked Alexa to shuffle my Drive playlist for my commute was... Dolly Parton's 9 to 5. And when I tell you that there has been no getting ahead today, I mean it.

So that's your prompt for the flash challenge. Give me either something from the movie or the song 9 to 5, or give me something from a song that is very A Propos for your day!

While we are not coming up on the end of our not-so-monthly challenge, we are coming up on the end of our month. GO GET YOUR NUMBERS POSTED!!!

Big Buddy February!

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you once a week to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every Monday chime in to tell us that you are up to snuff.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!

Who's in?
