Fudges, Freaks And Fooling Around

Reality Television

Why is there evil in the world?

To prompt WordPress prompters into asking questions I really don’t want to have to answer.

Why are reality TV shows so popular?

The government outlawed freak shows.

Close your eyes and try thinking about nothing: what happens?

It’s counter-intuitive, but awake or asleep our brains are driven to be doing something. It’s a surprise to most people to realize how little control they have over their own minds.

It’s not a surprise to me.  And nor, I suspect, to this blog’s readers.

Make of that what you will 😉

I’m just kidding.  Ask me again.

Close your eyes and try thinking about nothing: what happens?

    Oh dear! Tis true, their questions are getting sillier., I can’t think of nothing – the moment I try, I either fall asleep, or start chewing over everything I should be doing instead of wasting time trying to think of nothing.

      That was the thrust of the prompt; I edited it a little.

    Never answer a question that makes you feel uncomfortable.

      Actually, I don’t think it’s a bad idea, because it forces a person to think about what they think about something. But this blog is not really the place for that.

    I wonder what our friends at wordpress are paid for coming up with this awe-inspiring material? I cam just see them all in an upper room somewhere, chianti bottles scattered on the desk. tring to think up something original for a new day. I feel a new career coming on…

    Huh! What? Oh. Excuse me, I nodded off.

    Tilly, I would sponsor a petition to get you a job at WordPress, but I fear they would suffer a creativity overload. As stodgy as their boardroom must be, it might be fatal.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
