When I read the prompt, this is what happened. I peeked into my grandson’s room. He was fast asleep. Obviously I couldn’t wake him up to ask what he was thinking. If I had woken him up, he would have been irritated beyond anything.
I can foretell what his reply would have been. First of all he would have eyed me with great suspicion, as to why I was asking him, “what he was thinking?”. Next he would have asked, “why are you asking me?” After going to great lengths, and assuring him about having no evil intentions whatsoever, he would have muttered, “nothing”.
I have saved myself from the above happening.
Then I waited some more for my son S to wake up. We had planned to go to World Food to get the necessary eatables to stock the freezer, and pantry shelves. Next week my daughter Nola, and family arrives to spend Eid with us. Eid is on eighteenth of this month.
Nola waited expectantly for S to announce that we will be going to Roanoke, but S can’t take a leave, so Nola decided to come after all.
No sign of S yet. It’s 11.30 now. I gave him a call. He will give me a shout when he is ready. No chance to ask him as to what he is thinking.
Pause whatever you’re doing, and ask the person nearest you what they’re thinking about (call someone if you have to). Write a post based on it.
