Answering stupid questions

In which you don’t ask questions.

The Thinker by Rodin

I’m pretty open about what I will talk about, this is quite unusual for both a Brit and a bloke. I am meant to be doubly reserved and refuse to talk about feelings and relationships. I just like talking though, but still there are limits to my openness.

They say ask an honest question and get an honest answer, but I prefer the idea of ask a leading question and get a misleading answer. For as much as I like being open I much prefer not ruffling feathers. So even though I try to provide as much information as possible, I can still be as awkward to answer as a celebrity being asked stupid questions during a press junket.

Why did you do that?

Sometimes I do things purely because something needed doing, I operate more on the fight rather than flight spectrum so on occasion I will just react to a situation. This often causes me a number of issues because I have done or said something I really shouldn’t have. So when I am asked why I did what I did I can only really say that I did it because I did it and didn’t think not to do it.

What are you thinking?

So when I do stop to think I am probably thinking about something you don’t want to know about. We often wonder what is going through The Feliciraptor’s head, but as she is like her father it is probably for the best that we both live in our own little worlds.

What do you want?

I have no idea, it could be for birthday or for Christmas or for life, I just have no idea what I want in life. I thought I did, but then I realised I shouldn’t think about it too much and just go live it instead.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Trick Questions.”

A Pulitzer-winning reporter is writing an in-depth piece — about you. What are the three questions you really hope she doesn’t ask you?

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

  1. The reference you make to Brits and blokes reinforces the stereotype that others have of the doubly-reserved English. But you challenge the stereotype in the open quality of your comments. You’re even open about the boundaries of sharing, which is prudent, I think. Not everything needs to be shared all the time. Nor should it. Thanks!
