More Prompts

18 Nov

Tell us about something you’ve done that you would advise a friend never to do.

Malteser First Aid Recovery Position

I once asked you for a Malteser.

I would advise you never to return the ask.


What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?

That people who don’t often laugh, would come here and laugh at me.

I’ve already started with my family.  They laugh at me all the time.


Go back in time to an event you think could have played out differently for you. Let alternate history have its moment: tell us what could, would or should have happened?

DID:  I asked a friend for a Malteser.  She laughed, then quaked (for obvious reasons).  Then she gave me one.

SHOULD:  I asked a friend for a Malteser.  She gave me the whole packet and a voucher for more.


Invent a holiday! Explain how and why everyone should celebrate.

Belly Laugh Day.

Everyone is required by law to watch funny DVDs and tell jokes and amusing stories.

Anyone noncompliant will be tickled by banana skins wearing feather dusters. Whether it is the banana skins or the noncompliants who wear the feather dusters is up to you.


Write a letter to your 14-year-old self. Tomorrow, write a letter to yourself in 20 years.

We’ve done something similar before but, okay, here goes.  I’m nothing if not compliant:

Dear Tilly,


Love Tilly.

PS Eat less.


Dear Tilly,


Love Tilly.

PS I told you you should eat less.

    I read your blog daily, but rarely do I comment. It’s laziness and the fact that when the post comes in the email it’s ever so easy to not click through. But finally I decided I must tell you that you have the most amazing mind! I love it!

    Thanks for making me laugh so often, Tilly. I’ll buy my own Maltesers. 🙂

    New Year’s is coming soon…will resolve to laugh more out loud even if it scares Bianca (my cat). ♥

    Tilly, there is a place and a time for everything – even for laughing – and here with you is the place .. and the time – EVERY TIME!

    Love the letters, Tilly! And Belly Laugh Day sounds fun. We could share Maltesers on that day… JOKING!!! 😀

    I always get belly-laughs from you, Tilly B. I loved your letters to yourself, too. 😎

    I absolutely adore you! Yes, I may have said that before!

    “That people who don’t often laugh, would come here and laugh at me.” <- This made me laugh, although I like to think it was with you rather than at you 😉

    Your responses to prompts are amazing.


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.
