Conforming

Some minds can’t assimilate as well as others; those brains’ stomachs do not growl for more food. To add any more would be to overfill the cup and send a flood over the sides. Damage would be overwhelming: homeowners might drown; wildlife would tilt over, drunk. Radicals would not conform with corsets to seem as thin as others.

    I see many use the prompt to associate with food. I felt it in my life. I’d love for more to draw from life experiences rather than things. But you mixed them all together nicely. Excellent.

    “Homeowners might drown.”

    Indeed! I’m thinking of offering summer swimming lessons . . . in my basement.

    Prompts back up today!
