Writing Prompts

Daily Post – Fragile

(NOTE: Based on today’s The Daily Post writing prompt)

There are two things that come to mind when I think of the word “fragile.”

First, of course, is the classic scene from A Christmas Story, where the dad doesn’t know how to pronounce the word that adorns the wooden box in which his major award has been delivered. It’s classic not just for his mistake but for the subtle, loving way his wife corrects him.

The second is Sting’s song with that name.

What does that word spur in your mind?
