The Moral of the Story

cornish blue hot chocolate

Well, I’m back. I had the most expensive cup of hot chocolate in the world on my way here. But I have a working computer and a passion to create writing prompts, so it all worked out in the end. The moral of the story is, do not drink near your computer. Do. Not.

  1. A man can never know what his decisions bring forth because even the sweetest things in everyday life can set the course to a bitter end. Almost like statues of stone we are forced to admit, that we are stuck. The moral of the story: There is no moral.

  2. As you could ride around paranoid without valid license, remember the cops main objective is to meet a quota. When you get pulled over you could either run or remain silent. Get shot or get a ticket. Die or go to court. The moral of the story is “Fuck the Police!”

  3. A couple of mantras I live by are “Never assume” and “One thing always leads to another..”
    Often we say yes to what we assume is a totally simple task which will be accomplished and over in minutes. It never is. Again, often we enter a room with one single thing to accomplish and emerge much later having. instead, done a half-dozen or more. To top that off often some things are only half-completed and we need to return. What begins as linear turns out to be evolutionary. If there’s a moral to this story it’s that I need to pay attention – really pay attention to the mantras I profess to live by.
