Me and my Big Brother

(In a nutshell: CLICK HERE to read my actual entry.)



I wrote an entry for the Daily Prompt’s “Triumph” prompt today, but it’s not showing up on the Daily Prompt’s “Daily Prompt” page. Not promptly, anyway.


I suspect, unless there is just more than the usual lag this time, that my title might be to blame. Do they have a naughty word and/or double-entendre filter over there that flagged me?

If that’s the case, THIS title should pass muster, being merely an innocuous play on a famous book reference, without any prurient meaning explicit or implied. (Not particularly witty though, but sometimes ya gotta really stoop to conquer the folks over at miniluv.)

So yeah, if you want to read my REAL “Triumph” entry just click on my post immediately previous to this one. You’ll like it. It’s got naughty and/or double-entendre stuff out the wazoo.

And a picture of peanut butter bread. Really.

Sheesh. I feel like a doubleplusungood duckspeaker sometimes….

(Oh, and if it really IS just an unusual lag, not censorship, and I see that my Naughty Titled entry shows up on the Big List o’ Submissions, I’ll delete this here stupid backdoor.)

Ciao! (Again.)

  1. All seems well; got TWO posts from you today. Long ago my family adopted brother/sister kittens. His name was Smokey because he was a grey tabby. She was all black but was cleverly named Cindy – short for Cinders. Got it, Smoke and Cinders, hyuk hyuk. So there has been at least ONE totally black cat that was NOT named Midnight. Alas, they were both poisoned, along with every other pet in our neighborhood. Cruel: rat poison in tasty salt pork, thrown over fences and into flower gardens. Evil lurks…

    1. Oh my god, that’s AWFUL! There have actually been rumours circulating around here that the same thing has been going on, starting just before Gloria vanished, since so many cats disappeared at around the same time. I hope it’s not true.

      But I did like “Smoke and Cinders”, lol….


  2. I wondered why there were two posts from you the same day. Now I know, all it takes is a tech bug to send you into a panic. In the wrong hands, that knowledge could be dangerous. Now, who do we know who’s a bona-fide tech geek?

    1. “Gosh” he said, scratching his head. “A tech geek, you say? No…hey wait!!”

      Lol. I don’t think it was a tech bug that sent my link into the inviso-sphere. I vaguely recall reading a series comments in an FAQ section about how Daily Post titles (and sometimes content) were subject to a morals clause. I’m sure I just got snagged by an algorithm somewhere. No worries though, Tech Geek Goddess. I managed to find its fatal flaw πŸ™‚


  3. I’ve been trying to comment on your actual entry for this here story, but can’t for some reason. But I had to because I am incredibly excited about Midnight. I was ready to be pissed at you for making me look at a picture of a dead cat, but then the story turned around! Congrats on Midnight adopting you!
