Daily Prompt: Inside the Bubble

First of all, yes I am here again. Just ignore me if you have better things to do, but I found if the Daily Prompt can spring over their shadow, then so can I. Who am I to think I am something special, individual etc. etc. In the meanwhile I put myself voluntarily into quarantine and discovered there is something called a Topic Generator and I have discovered my creative uncreative side again. So thank you topic generator and I will be back definitely. It is almost the best thing that has happened since sliced bread (I think that was a prompt once). Anyhow to continue, todays assignment is:

A contagious disease requires you to be put into quarantine for a whole month (don’t worry, you get well by the time you’re free to go!). How would you spend your time in isolation?

There were times as a young mother when I would have welcomed a months quarantine: away from it all, no nappies to change, do homework with the kids, go shopping, cooking ironing and all that stuff that we women thrive on. Now the kids are grown up, finding their own way in life and probably also longing for a month’s quarantine, but that is their problem. I had to deal with it as well.

Anyhow I am now in the golden oldie years, where I do what I want to and not what I have to (with the exception of a daily something or other in the cyber world). There we get to the point. I am restricted to my own four walls due to some sort of mysterious virus infection contracted whilst writing the Daily Prompt. Daily Prompt were suffering for many months and locked themselves in their office in Silicon Valley, straining to press the key that activated the old prompts. They are now cured, but it seems we are infected, so what do we do?

No problem of course. It is the human metabolism that has an illness, our computers are ready to go and we have a complete month to do it all. Making an allowance for time to eat, take your tablets, and measure your blood pressure, the remainder is all yours. After all you can order everything else online. I have my Apple computer, known as Mac and even one of those Windows things, what could be better. In the morning checking through what the others said through the night. It is a well-known fact that whilst we Europeans are sleeping the colonists over the pond are ready to go, and so computer is a 24 hour system. Whilst you are sleeping the others are not and somewhere the others are watching and waiting to jump in, in between.

Throughout my European afternoon I will be writing the new, fresh, original daily prompt of course. After uploading this I will be writing for the topic generator. The Topic Generator is super, it is always there, it never fails, although I must say the combinations of the two words, adjective and noun, can be sometimes quite mysterious, morbid, refreshing, the fulfilment of your blogging dreams, depending on how your illness is developing. I have now spent two weeks with this new way of blogging life and I survived.

In between I did my own thing, accompanied by photos and their inspiration. Of course, with a contagious illness, known as “the dreaded” for want of another expressions, I cannot take my camera into the outer world. In the meanwhile I have discovered that I have almost 1400 MB of photos on my computer and 3 so-called Western Digital hard drives so that will keep me busy in between when I am not writing rubbish.

And as I am not really in quarantine, my fate has been decided by Mr. Swiss. It is not raining, the weather is overcast, but pleasant, and he is ready with the walking shoes and blue jeans. He asked

“what about you” and I said

“Yes, I am ready to go, I just have to upload my new fresh daily prompt”

“I thought you were no longer doing daily prompts.”

“Who said that, they were just not new, but now they have returned.”

“So we are no longer going for walks?”

I did not ask if I could take my computer with me. I will now upload and then I am gone. If the prompt is still breathing and alive tomorrow I will be back.

  1. Can Garry come into the bubble with me? Can we bring the computers? Will there be WiFi? TV? Our own bed? If so and food is delivered, it sounds like a five star hotel to me. Bubble shmubble, I call that a VACATION.

    Three days in a row of new prompts? I’m afraid to believe!

    • Yes, it really seems too good to be true, but having faith in WordPress and their turnover I decided to return. Mr. Swiss in the the bubble? Yes I will think about that. He had an argument with a set of drums and a couple of cymbals on Sunday when he was moving them around in our hobby room and now looks like a miniature version of an Al Capone lookalike, but it makes him all the more interesting. Our five star hotels here are called hospitals, although the food is a bit bland.


  2. So true! I am not quite as dedicated as you angloswiss. If a prompt doesn’t inspire me I won’t write anything. So seeing these prompts appear repeatedly is a bit dis-heartening. I have tried a few alternative prompts but they are not as regular, I do like the same time – each day – everyday habit. Sigh! It’s always great to read your posts, they are funny and light-hearted so I’m glad the daily prompt are luring you back. KL 🙂

    • At the moment I am back, but I might alternate with other stuff. My problem is mainly that I only get the prompts at 3 in the afternoon, so I have to think quick about what to write. I believe it will soon be daylight saving time in the States, so then it will be 2 in the afternoon – an hour more.

    • I am not sure if they have gone to the sky, but we will see. Perhaps to the happy prompting grounds where there spirits will be roaming and looking for a grid in another place. Who knows.

  3. Today I wrote a post following the topic generator and at night I joined the daily prompt. Now I’m perplexed. Let’s see…

    • I am also now in two places. It seems that they have began to bring new prompts again on the daily prompt, so I decided to give it a try and see what happens. I am also on the topic generator, which I very much like and will probably be hopping around in both worlds.
