My Post From A Prompt


I spend so much time deep in thought…..I get behind on my tasks. My blogging 101 is no exception. A few days ago we were asked to write from a prompt, one that spoke to us. I chose after scanning a few dozen:

A Bird, a Plane, You!
You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:
the ability to speak and understand any language
the ability to travel through time
the ability to make any two people agree with each other

This spoke to me, since finding a superpower is something I have been talking about lately. Of the three choices given, I pick the ability to make any two people agree with each other. The reason I chose this was to get two of the most aggressive war mongering powerheads to come to an agreement, to stop war. Even for a moment, I would hope that I could make someone realize that killing and hate is not the best use of their time. War just perpetuates more war, more hate….ain’t no mortals have time for that. Come on, take off your khakis. slip into some comfy soft jammies and relax with a cool drink and maybe a toke of the peacepipe. Throw on some music, grab a partner and dance. Sway softly, smell the roses, and take a deep breath. Look up in the sky, watch the stars twinkle, make the decision to let everyone have a good day from now on. I could write hundreds of more useful and pleasurable things to do, I am sure you could too. Why would anyone choose war?
