Random Things He Says.

“Hun, can you help me with this post? I’m thinking hitchhiker, detour, mystery!”

It flowed effortlessly.

“It’s been done before.”

Shot. Down.

“The prompt is detour. It could be taken figuratively or literally.”


“What kind of detour?  A detour of the heart?”

“Some may do that. I’m thinking something more gruesome, maybe involving a knife?”

I need a new muse.

“The cat!”

“Brian the cat can’t detour.”

Or be my muse.

“Look at the cat! She’s taking a DETOUR, through the banister because the baby gate is closed!  DETOUR


“Yes Brian, Detour!”

“You said the cat couldn’t detour and SHE DID!!”

“Thank you, well done. You proved me wrong.”

Death stare

“ How about you write about a miner, with a waterfall, and then there’s some dude, with something in his

pocket!  What’s in there?  I don’t know AND what’s he diggin’ for?”

Much laughter, and typing.

“Are you typing what I’m saying?”

“No hun.”

More typing.

“Now I have to keep my mouth shut at work and at home….. talking is a sickness.”

Giggles and then a cough to hide more typing.

“I know you’re writing everything I say! But before I go, one more piece of advice! Write about Star Wars,

not Star Trek, no one likes them. You don’t like Star Wars either but you really should watch it hun,

everyone likes it but you.”

    Hilarious! I rarely ask. C for help with my writing. Because that’s exactly the experience I would have. Great take on the prompt.

      My brain wouldn’t work so I had to turn to the man for help.

      He’s STILL saying it when the cat wants to go downstairs!
      “just DETOUR!!” LOL

      Men have some random thoughts!
      then when they say them out loud things get a little wacky!

    Are we perhaps married to the same man?

    Only we have dogs, and not a cat.

    Plenty of detours there.
