As a retired coach for high school moot court teams, I find myself partial to this word. Purely academic exercise would describe the teams hard work and performances. They put in long hours of reading, writing and researching in order to present a case in competition.
Then, with a little help from a dictionary, two of my students educated me. “Moot, as in ‘open to discussion’?”, he asked. His teammate replied, “no, it means ‘subjected to debate’!”. She was quite adamant.
We were all correct.
The Ragtag Daily Prompt for Sunday is –MOOT.
Which definition fits your fancy? Which one strikes a cord or sparks an idea? Take your pick. Create a post-prose, poetry, photographs, drawings–any will do. Put that post right here with a pingback and tag it with “RDP”, “Ragtag Daily Prompt”, and “Moot”.
Then look around at what others have written. This could be a real hoot!!!!
See you next Sunday!
