When OPAQUE is all you need

Dear Diary, I browsed through DailyPrompts today and picked out Opaque. Why, you’d ask? I have absolutely no idea, to tell you the truth. The first thing that came to my mind was, opaque-marengo… No, please do not think I have gone of the rockers here. I am not crazy and am not on any prohibited…

It’s Complicated…. not

One of the daily prompts on WordPress is Complicated. Why did I pick it? Well, thank you for asking. I absolutely love this word. I absolutely adore this concept.
