What’s In A Name #carrotranch #morganandlogandoamerica

Logan and Morgan are still in the US, drifting around the rust belt and heading for the Ranch. Morgan got them involved in a march a few prompts ago and maybe things are taking a strange turn…

‘You okay, Morgan? You’re white and sweaty, like yesterday’s tripe.’

‘You remember that protest?’

‘Where you made me wear a Mini Mouse mask?’

‘Yeah, well… I was chatting to the organiser…’

‘… with little regard for social distancing…’

‘She was very compelling…’

‘Oh yes, she forced you that close…’

‘Anyway, she said we’d be followed…’

‘…you’re paranoid…’

‘…and gave me this flyer. See…’

‘He was in the diner.’

‘And he’s just signed in.’

‘Probably coincidence.’

‘Guess his name…’


‘Ron Earlobe MD.’

‘Oh come on, that’s ridiculous…’

‘Yeah, but if you reorder the letters…’

‘Monreal Dorb!’

‘Now do you see?’

This was written in response to this week’s #carrotranch prompt

July 9, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes that answers the question, who is Monreal Dorb. You can imagine the life of this fictitious person in any era or circumstance. Is there cause and effect at play? Go where the prompt leads!

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I was disappointed that it wasn’t Nanjo but they probably know each other. Hope the boys stay safe!
