Typically, I use the weekly prompt to write another chapter in the online story I have going. Except for this week. Too many distractions and I’m not ready.
I do have a prompt submission though, having thought about number for a while.

So hopefully, saying No, I’m not interested in buying the Brooklyn Bridge still means the same thing today too.

On further thought though, I think both meanings apply today.
“I’ve got your number (1-800-123-4567) and no, I’m not interested in the scam of the week.”
Numbers are a wonderful thing.
