Daily Prompt – Decisions, Decisions

How are you more likely to make an important decision – by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?

Important decisions? Well, I usually try to avoid those. If I have to, I usually start with reasoning through it – logic and all that junk. If it’s a dilemma then reasoning usually doesn’t work. That’s when I use my gut. If I still can’t decide on an appropriate course of action, then I spin the roulette wheel or use the Magic 8 ball. If I’m still unhappy with my decision, then I just run away and bury my head in the sand until it all blows over, or goes away.



Daily Prompt – Forever Young

If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?

Sure. If there were a Fountain of Youth, that would mean that we probably lived in magic fairy land where anything was possible. I would also drink the I Can Fly potion, the Hey Look, I’m Invisible potion, and the When I snap my fingers thousands of dollars will appear potion..Oh yeah, and let’s not forget the Anybody I want will have sex with me potion.


Daily Prompt – Middle Seat

It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seat, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person you new best friend?

Well, it really depends on the person. If they are talking about something I am interested in, then I might chat for a while. If they are my type, then I’ll try to seduce them.
If they are boring and/or hideous, then I’ll just ignore them somehow.
I’d move if they were just so horrible that I wanted jump out of the plane, train, or bus. If I was in a coffee shop I would just look at my phone and read a fake text message of urgency. Oops, gotta go.


Daily Prompt – Take a Chance on Me

What’s the biggest chance you ever took? Did it work out?

I flew all the way across the country to be with someone I met on the internet. It was the stupidest thing I’ve ever done. Did it work out? No! It was a week of hell. I learned a valuable lesson though. Don’t fly all the way across the country just to have sex. That’s what idiot’s do.


Daily Prompt – Only Sixteen

Tell us about the person you were when you were sixteen.

I turned 16 in 1973. I was in the band at school and I was kind of a dork. I was just a regular kid I guess. I didn’t cause too much trouble. I went to the movies a lot. I also spent a lot of time in my room listening to records. I don’t really remember it that much because it was 42 years ago. I didn’t take notes.
