PROMPTuesday #60 – For Real (wherein I’m supposed to lie or something)

DaGoddess @ 02:48

There’s some challenge this week to answer questions relating to the seven deadly (or at least slightly injurious sins) and we’re supposed to lie in our answers. Or not. Or maybe we’re supposed to answer some truthfully and others fallaciously and then gather around the blogfire at the end of the week to figure out what was true, what was false, and who had us most convinced. Or something. “So lie to me”, Deb says. But I hear Jonny Lang singing it faintly in the background…as if he’s serenading her from the shower.

More truth than anything in here. The couple of lies…you’ll spy them easily enough.

What is your biggest contribution to the world?
My two children who have such big, kind hearts. I cannot take sole responsibility for them, but I can take some credit and pride in helping to have created them.

I’d like to think on a more personal level that I have tried to be a good, honest friend, helpful where I could be helpful, caring without conditions, and as patient as possible when situations go wrong.

What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours?
Amongst my photography cohorts? Marriage. And gear. Silly, isn’t it? Amongst the nurses I know? Their jobs and healthy backs. Others? Slimmer bodies, brighter smiles, perkier breasts, tighter tummies and bottoms, hot husbands…any number of things that may or may not make their lives any better but that I remember having once at some point in life, wishing I had again.

What did you eat last night?
Totinos frozen pizzas followed by popcorn (during Mythbusters in which they tested a popcorn myth).

What really lights your fire?
Jonny Lang singing to Deb me from the shower. Maybe not. I know the drummer. I’ve been to a concert. That ain’t gonna happen.

Someone who is absolutely into me more than they are into anything else in their life. They would rather be with me than light up a cigarette, open a beer, turn on the TV. That can all come later, but not before he has had his fill of me.

The way he looks into my eyes, seeing a myriad of colors at play in them. The way he places his hand on mine or around my shoulder. The way he knows exactly what words to say to trigger my smile and delight. The kiss that lingers and tempts. The ability to make me forget the craziness of the day for a while as we make the most of our uninterrupted time together. The escape we provide for each other.

What is the last thing that really pissed you off?
I don’t believe I can answer that honestly at the moment without creating an international incident.

Name something you hoard and keep from others.
Secrets. Trust funds. Love. Lottery winnings. Good stories. Take your pick. Only a couple are true.

What’s the laziest thing you ever did?
I went a week and a half without showering because I didn’t feel like driving over to my mom’s house to get a shower while ours was out. It wasn’t pretty. Baby wipes only go so far.

It’s not exactly the most revealing post ever, but I have reasons.


  1. This is all good, but I don’t like how you took back Jonny Lang.

    Return the sentence to “singing to Deb…” and I can fully endorse this entry.

  2. You wouldn’t hoard lottery winnings… that much I know for sure! ;)

  3. Fine, fine, Jonny’s yours, Deb.

    And Pam, you’re right. I wouldn’t hoard lottery winnings nor trust funds.
