Time to catch up on a few Daily Prompts.
Draft a post with three parts, each unrelated to the another, but create a common thread between them by including the same item — an object, a symbol, a place — in each part.
I went one better and did it in four parts, with four disparate questions:
- Normal is as normal does
- A review
- World hunger eradicated
- A party
The object: a friend.
Is being “normal” — whatever that means to you — a good thing, or a bad thing? Neither?
‘Normal.’ I’ve heard of it. Can’t say I know what it’s like.
A true story: a friend and I were chatting. I consider her a left-leaning hippy. She considers my a right-wing…well, let’s not use any swear words on a family blog, shall we?
We were chatting about the nature of eccentricity. I asked her if she thought I was eccentric and she replied yes. My face fell.
She asked me if I thought she was eccentric and I replied no. Her face fell.
I was too polite to tell the truth. I hope she was, too.
Normal is over-rated. If I was normal, I’d have three followers and no five-day visits to and from complete strangers who become best friends.
Write a review of your life — or the life of someone close to you — as if it were a movie or a book.
I have a lovely friend who is a left-leaning hippy. She moved away. Pity. Next to her, I look normal.
If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?
This has to be the dumbest question yet.
Of course I would. No cooking, ever?
Plan the ultimate celebration for the person you’re closest to, and tell us about it. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?
I have this lovely, left-leaning hippy friend who promised to visit me last Easter. I’m still waiting. I’m sure she’ll arrive soon, because I have a whole party prepared for her…my lounge; me; I’ve even prepared a delicious dinner of pill.
