(…) My father was  a fava, mother a cauliflower, the kids red beans. I was grated parmesan stirring it up at the end. (…)

Occasionally I visit the NaHaiWriMo Facebook page to see what’s happening, who’s the prompter (this month it’s RANDALL HERMAN), and what kind of daily writing themes they’re exploring.

The problem is once I read the theme, I can’t help doing a comic about it. .

The prompt for August 22 was penumbra (“during the eclipse it is the shadow on either side of the path of totality”).
