This challenge has ended!
It is a desperate time. All the defenses have been breached, all the fools have been be disproofed (unproofed? Unproved?). There is only the button marked JINX that stands between you and disaster, possibly the end of the world! Pressing could change everything but there is no other choice. With shaking hands your fingertips slide across the slick surface of the button. At your touch, an orange light blooms into being and begins to flash. Closing your eyes, you press the button.
(It sounds sci-fi but doesn’t have to be).
Sequels, prequels, mutli-ficlies and multiple entries are encouraged. Let the JINX inspire you!
I’ve taken to referring to things as ‘fool resistant’. Everytime you think you’ve made something foolPROOF, a bigger fool comes along.
I was looking for the word that describes when something foolproof is broken. It was supposed to be funny but humor has never really been my strong point—in writing anyway.
Disproved, I would say.
Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
