The Daily Prompts are B~A~C~K! October 24, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Blogging, Humor.

For those of you who have run out of things to talk about, the WP Daily Prompts are BACK. 

Today’s prompt

What’s the one thing you hope other people never say about you?

That’s Easy!

I hope they never say:  “she cares what people say about her behind her back when she isn’t listening.”  😉

Aah . . . that’s better!

What about you?  What do you hope we don’t say about you?

Hmm. I need to think. So many.. 🙂

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

I knew you were going to say that! 😀

2. Booksphotographsandartwork - October 24, 2012

I think by now this is a lost cause for me. Different people will have different things to say based on individual reasons and I tend to run unfiltered a lot now. So I’m sure a few people have some rather choice things to say about me. I certainly have the same to say about them.

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

Good attitude, Linda. It all works out in the wash, eh? 😉

3. granny1947 - October 24, 2012

Can honestly say I don’t really give a damn…one of the few upsides of getting older….please note I didn’t say old. 🙂

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

Duly noted! Older . . . not old. 😉

And I quite agree. I’ve lived long enough to realize that what “they” think of me matters naught.

4. Tom (Aquatom1968) - October 24, 2012

I don’t think I’m bothered by what people say about me. Years ago there would have been a long list, but now they can say what they want to! They’ll say it whether I want them to or not anyway…!

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

Years ago, it bothered me if someone looked at me askew. Made me wonder what they were thinking.

Now, I just “Smile and wave, boys. Smile and wave.” 😀

5. Andra Watkins - October 24, 2012

You took the best one. 🙂

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

I did! 😎

6. kateshrewsday - October 24, 2012

I shudder to even begin thinking about it, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

Worry not, fair Kate! Without doubt, they toast you as a seamstress of words. 😀

7. Paula Tohline Calhoun - October 24, 2012

The Spirit that forever lights the way
Led me to your blog today.
Why it shone its lamp I cannot say
But it must be because I need to play
With you, my first friend of the blogosphere,
And write some nonsense verse right here.
In truth, I have nothing to say on the subject
But I’m writing anyway, to prove I’m not hub-pecked!
Because he has frequently said to me,
If stupid’s all you’ve got to write, then please do it anonymously.
But I won’t do it! Forevermore your fans will recall a
fact immutable: This dumb ditty was penned by Paula!

Cheers! My friend, and as always,
enough. . .

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

It’s WONDERFUL, Paula! Stop by and play with words anytime you are so inclined.

Thanks so much. 😀

8. sweetdaysundertheoaks - October 24, 2012

I wouldn’t want anyBODY to say that I drive like a girl… 😀

nrhatch - October 24, 2012

Good one! Do you? 😉

sweetdaysundertheoaks - October 24, 2012


nrhatch - October 24, 2012

Me neither. :mrgreen:

9. jannatwrites - October 25, 2012

Interesting prompt. I’ve thought about it and I can’t come up with a thing. I guess I either don’t care, or I won’t hear them 🙂

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

Good for you, Janna. When we have a better sense of who we are, we know where our priorities lie, and tend to be less inclined to look for input from others.

When we know WHO we are . . . we know HOW to live. 😎

10. Perfecting Motherhood - October 25, 2012

That I should be really fat with all the food I eat. Oh wait, people have told me that in my face! I think they’re just jealous. 🙂

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

They ARE jealous! Green with envy . . . :mrgreen:

11. sufilight - October 25, 2012

Good one, Nancy! In my case, because of the hearing impediment, I don’t want anyone to say, I am ignoring them or dismissing them. If I am not alert, if someone speaks to me, I won’t notice. Other than that, I don’t worry what is said behind my back and doubt much is being said anyway. 😀

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

That makes sense, Marie. Before I got contact lenses in college, I couldn’t recognize most faces at a distance . . . if “they” waved, I waved back. 😀

12. bluebee - October 25, 2012

That would be an interesting question to put to Mr Lance Armstrong, right now. As for me, say what you will 😉

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

I expect that many celebrities have a tough time of it ~ they enjoy being in the spotlight as long as it casts a rosy glow over their countenance. But they would just as soon sidestep any negative attention their actions and omissions have garnered.

Now, as for you, let me just say that . . . . 😉

13. William D'Andrea - October 25, 2012

I’ve wondered about this before. My question is, what wouldn’t I want people to say about me at my funeral?

As long as they don’t sing “Ding-Dong the Witch is Dead!” it’ll be okay with me.

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

Maybe I’ll have them play that at my Memorial Service. An unexpected touch, for sure. 😉

14. colonialist - October 25, 2012

I would be miffed indeed if people said I was boring.

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

Perish the thought! They would NEVER. 😀

15. Three Well Beings - October 26, 2012

I don’t ever want to be thought of as unkind. I don’t need agreement or even to be liked, but I don’t want to be thought of as unkind. Which is why I keep a lot of my thoughts to myself. LOL!

nrhatch - October 26, 2012

Same here, Debra! Keeping our thoughts firmly in check saves endless hassle.

Sometimes, when I intend only kindness, a recipient takes it the wrong way ~ e.g., someone asks me to review their writing, I point out some grammar issues that need addressing, they get pissed off and tell me to mind my own business (because they didn’t want an honest and kind review . . . they wanted applause and accolades for self-perceived brilliance).

If I know that I’m doing my best to be kind, I don’t worry about whether someone like that agrees. It’s NOT kind to encourage delusions. :mrgreen:
