Stream of Consciousness Saturday word prompt is “antic,” any form of the word, or any word with containing “antic.” This event is hosted by Linda G. Hill.
Antic would open a world of words, if a writer chooses to use “anti” as a prefix. One could be anti-guns or be anti-gun control. One could be anti-meat or anti-veggies. One, like myself, needs to take an anti-coagulant.
That, however, is probably not the way the prompt was intended. So let’s go back to antic as a complete word. There are many people who love to pull antics on friends. Just joking enough to be funny; not to damage or humiliate. They are just fun tricksters, as in fun anticsters. Now that might be going too far.
If you are adverse to playing antics on someone, I guess you would be an antiphobe. If you loved a study of stunts, tricks, and antics, you must study antic- phobology. Don’t waste you time looking for that word. I don’t think you will find it! 😀

My editor (or browser) will not let me start with a picture, at least I haven’t discovered some new antic, WP is pulling on me. WP Happiness Engineers say they have nothing to do with my problem because it is my browser that is the problem.
I think there are Word Press elves doing antics in their programming.
There are phobias for everything these days. I think I am phobe phobic.
