Daily Prompt: S/he Said

Daily Prompt: S/he Said

Pause whatever you’re doing, and ask the person nearest you what they’re thinking about (call someone if you have to). Write a post based on it.

He’s still asleep.  I should go in there right now, wake him up and ask him what he’s thinking about.  His answer would most likely be an extra long, artfully delivered, deeply resonant fart.   I think I’ll let him sleep.

A few minutes later…

He’s out of bed, turning up the heat.  I ask him, “What are you thinking about?”

“I’m thinking about taking my pills,” he says with a puzzled, what a weird question first thing in the morning look on his face.   I see what he’s thinking.  He’s thinking,  What did I do?  What am I supposed to be thinking about? Is this a set-up? Are we going to have drama today? 

“It’s the Daily Prompt”, I explain.

Ahh, now he understands.   Greatly relieved, he’s back to thinking about taking his pills.  He’s tooting his way into the kitchen.
