My five random words for today’s exercise are kennel, denim, genius, creeper, pocket.
Chosen word for free association: creeper
unsavory dude, mechanic’s dolly
To Harold, “Creeper” was never an insult. It was just a nickname he got because he spent so much time under cars on his mechanic’s dolly. He even made a trucker hat that said “CREEPER” across the top. He never understood what all the chuckles were about; he just thought he made people happy whenever he came around.
When the authorities showed up at his garage to charge him with harassment, it was a complete surprise.
