Reality Hits at Odd Times

Happiness seems to be rare these days. I have noticed a lot of people that are not happy, and few that attempt to fake it in an effort to keep the world out of their business.

It is out of self defense that people do these things. Some of them are afraid that people will hurt them and others prefer to be alone. Figuring out the difference can be difficult, but not entirely impossible. Getting close enough for them to let you behind the curtain so to speak is all that you have to do.

Reality is often why they are the way they are. It can hit when you least expect it, such as during casual conversation. An odd moment occurs when you have two separate conversations because neither of you are paying attention even though you thought you were both intensely focused on the conversation. The speaker might not be attempting to be rude but that is how they come off. 

They could have simply stated a fact that you know but felt that there was no need for them to tell you at that moment. Like I said reality comes at odd times.

How do you deal with the reality that you already knew? Is it difficult at times?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
