Key to the Future

Golden Key
by Ben Huberman
You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?


Most of us lament the earlier resolves we took in life. To a select few it never happens, because they were Socrates, and Plato when they were born.

I wish for a key to a room where there is a giant screen on the wall. It should show me the end results of a decision, or show me the correct choice to make.

It will be certainly marvelous. It will be so easy to make a decision. No tearing out my hair, as I do on occasions when I remember earlier choices.


Sheen’s Laments

Daily Prompt: Back on the Chain Gang
We all have jobs, tasks, and chores that we dislike doing. Tell about the least favorite job/task/chore that you get stuck doing routinely. What is it about this duty that you can’t stand?
Show DUTY.


Doing household chores, I dread most
Routine works becomes a drudgery
How can one avoid it?
Getting a maid is a luxury

Cleaning house, washing dishes
I look at it so bleakly
Nothing new to look forward to
Life looks a dreadful misery
