Difficult But Not Hard | Daily Inkling #9

We wanted to post this when most of our audience would be awake. We chose the super-specific time of 8:37 A.M. CST / 2:37 P.M. GMT

Write a blog post inspired by today’s Daily Inkling:

“Difficult But Not Hard”

Spend an hour or so annoying an unfortunate friend, family member, or coworker — preferably someone with a good sense of humor — with the following riddle format:

“It’s X, but it’s not Y.”

X needs to have a word with double letters. For example: butter.

Y needs to have no double letters. For example: margarine.

Examples:
It’s butter but it’s not margarine.
It’s a tree but not a forest.
It’s coffee but not tea.
It’s an occupation but not a job.

Continue to do it until they catch on or, perhaps more likely, never talk to you again. Report back with the results.

  • Write a post inspired by the prompt! Feel free to modify it as much as you like. It is your clay, so model it into whatever form you see fit.
