“It’s either ‘oblivious’ or ‘obviate’. There is not such thing as ‘obliviate’,” Mr Klemp explained.
“But I read it in a book! The word exists,” Kenny insisted.
“And where did you read it? 14th century textbook?”
“No, I read it in a storybook by a world famous author!” Kenny elucidated.
Mr Klemp was getting frustrated. “And what book is that?”
“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.”
Just a silly little story to illustrate the problems teachers face. The struggle is very real.

Welcome to April 29, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.
I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).
Today’s word is “obviate.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.
Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.
