Daily Prompt: Full Disclosure
A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
I suppose getting a chip would be highly tempting.
If I have a feeling my brother-in-law, or sister-in-law dislike me for no reason, I will be privy to their thoughts, confirming what I suspected all along.
My husband (if he was alive) won’t be able to hide behind words. When he would say, “I love you”, I would know the real feelings, “Oh God! This woman never tires of hearing this. She is so egotistical. I’m sick of telling her day and night.”
When a friend will say to me, “You’re looking great!”
I’ll know what she is not telling me, “The sickly cow, she looks as ugly as ever.”
All the above is too awful to contemplate.
So thank you kindly sir, I don’t need your chip.
