Blogging 101

The Easy-Peasy Road

“It’s much easier to not know things sometimes.”
– Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

 The context of this quote doesn’t quite relate to my point in this post, but it was the first thing I thought of when reading the Truth Serum Daily Prompt on the Daily Post; “You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?” Today’s Blogging 101 challenge is to address this prompt, so here goes:

Truth is (yes I went there), I don’t think I would. Any question that I would be asking is going to result in a truth that I don’t want to hear. Truths kept behind lips are unlikely to be you look lovely today or I think you’re really good at your job or your boyfriend is a sweetheart. 

Questions that I’d need a truth serum to gain answers to are going to be the things I don’t really want answering. Did that friend who drifted away happen by accident or was she glad to be shot of a loser BFF? Did my first serious boyfriend honestly not cheat on me with the girl he broke up with me for?

Realistically, I don’t want to know. I’m happier that way. Call me ignorant but in some cases I’m big on ignorance is bliss. 

I’m in my little happy bubble over here and my ignorance bubble is a lovely place to be. So I don’t think I’d use the truth serum.

Wallflower quote

 I’d sell it for tons on Ebay of course. I could do with a holiday.

  1. Interesting! I kind of answered the Daily Prompt creatively (ahem…totally avoided answering it). I thought of a few people I might want to give the truth serum to, but I do agree with you that sometimes it’s better not to know. I couldn’t help thinking of a quote (I think from That ’70s Show) about lies being the chocolate chips of a relationship; they can’t be the base of the cookie, but they make the cookie delicious. I suppose that’s just a teensy bit cynical. Ha, I like your thoughts about selling the truth serum on eBay.
    Also, I HONESTLY (eh, eh?) love what you’ve done with your site! Your banner and your About Me on a little piece of paper are super cute and make complete sense with what you’re blog is about.

    1. Thanks! I’ll have to check your loosely interpreted answer out! ;P
      It may be cynical but I must be too! I really like that quote! It is quite true. Noone needs absolute honesty. No girl really wants to know if “my bum looks big in that”.
      Thanks for your compliments on the site! I’m quite pleased with them! I love to scrapbook so making it look a bit like that was the aim! Glad you like it! 🙂
