Daily Prompt

Pick a random word and do Google image search on it. Check out the eleventh picture it brings up. Write about whatever that image brings to mind.

 

Every day my Dictionary.com app pings me the Word Of The Day.  I never paid that much attention to it until I had to come up with a random word for the Daily Prompt.  My random word is:

Loup-garou

According to Wikipedia,  it is “the French name for a werewolf, sometimes used in English, is loup-garou (pronounced /lugaˈru/), from the Latin noun lupus meaning wolf.  The second element is thought to be from Old French garoul meaning “werewolf”.   This in turn is most likely from Frankish *wer-wulf meaning “man-wolf”.

Some of the images I saw were hideous (they’re supposed to be…they ARE werewolves after all), but the 11th image is absolutely gorgeous:

 

It brings to mind the fact that people get a little crazy every time there’s a full moon. Even though we don’t sprout hair and fangs, there’s a werewolf deep down inside all of us.

Very fitting for Halloween!

😉

  1. Hmmm, ever see the movie Blood and Chocolate. It’s a bit bizarre, but pretty cool as far as Loup-Garou information/theories.
