SoCS: What a question!

I thought long and hard (first time I had to do that since I started taking part in this prompt) and finally decided to go with this.

Some personal questions and answers:

  • (My Manager) What is the status of the work today?  

(After the first half of the day lost in the conference call and the next half trying to actually figure out what to do and having my lunch and tea time in between and with down time with my friends etc etc. Well, actually nothing really happened. But what do I answer him at night? ) I am almost done with the design that we discussed in the morning, I will send an update by end of day (that which never comes). 

  • (My Niece) When are you coming home ?

Soon dear, I am there for almost 4-5 days next month during the holidays.

  • (My friends) When will you learn that we are pulling your leg and stop defending yourself ?

May be never. Half of my life I had to defend each of my action to someone. So it became an habit. But I am really trying. Watch me next time (But again I fall for their good nature ribbing)

  • (My fitness acquaintance) You look fit and healthy. Why do you even have to join the gym or any fitness class? 

Because I don’t feel fit that is why and yes, I have been trying to shed that 6 extra kilos for almost 7 years now. 

  • (My nephew) What are you planning to get for me when you come ? 

The same red car that I have been getting you forever.

Well, enough of the same boring personal ones. Here are some funny questions and their answers (read these in the Internet of course):

  • Why is the word abbreviation so long? 

To demonstrate the need for it 🙂 duh!!!

  • What is the funny and ultimate irony ?

I read a lot of answers to it, but the one I liked was 

The doctor hopes you fall ill ,
The police hopes you become a criminal ,
The lawyer hopes you get into trouble ,
The coffin maker wants you dead .
Only a thief wishes you prosperity !! 

  • If Cinderella’s shoe fit properly, why did they fall off while running ?

Because heels are not made for running. 

  • Have you considered that the phrase “IGNORE ALL THE RULES!”…is a rule itself ?


  • When you talk to yourself, who is talking to whom?

No one had a proper answer for this. Can you please let me now when you do, because I do that a lot of times.

And with that we come to the end. What do you think ? Did you enjoy my take on the prompt? Do you have any questions that you would like to add ?

Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Your Friday prompt for Saturday’s Stream of Consciousness post is, end your post with a question. Extra points if you fit an exclamation mark somewhere in the body of your post.

    Haha, I enjoyed reading this 🙂 and like you, for the first time I had to think quite a bit for SoCS!

      Thank you 🙂 Glad that I am not alone.
      I had two other topics in mind but was way too serious in nature and I wanted something light for the weekend.

    Ha, I did like this! I laughed at this question you included: “When you talk to yourself, who is talking to whom?” Funny! I have also always liked this question I’ve heard said: “Why do we park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?” I heard another good one like that and have since forgotten it though, and it bugs me to this day….I love questions like these! Anyway, fun post!

      🙂 Thank you. Some people have freaked out when I tell them that I talk to myself at times.
      Your question is also nice. Good play with words isn’t?

        Thanks! You might like this one too, then, from late comedian Mitch Hedberg. He once asked why people who show you a picture will often say, “This is a picture of me when I was younger.” But EVERY picture is a picture of you when you were younger! HA, I love that! Just had to share that one, too — I’m liking that your post is making me think of these kinds of questions and statements that make me laugh!


        • KG · July 26, 2014

          Wow.. Lol. That was so cool 🙂 We never think of those things when we say that don’t we? Thank you for sharing that.

    I talk to myself so much my children sometimes move away from me!


    • KG · July 26, 2014

      He he . Glad to have company. 🙂


  6. LindaGHill · July 26, 2014

    Haha! I’ve often wondered about the wisdom of even walking in glass slippers, let alone running in them.
    Brilliant post, my dear. Thanks very much for this! 😀

    A few I’d considered myself! LOL Really enjoyed it and had a laugh too.
