2022 prompt/hour 12:

“my hobby can beat up your hobby”

 

Generic questions are offered when meeting most people

Generic answers are given back by most too

What do you do for a living?

Are you married?

Do you have kids?

Or if not – when are you going to?

But – where it can get interesting is…

What hobbies are you interested in?

We’re your hobbies ever different?

People are fascinating

People can tell you so much with this answer

Many have –

quiet hobbies

ordinary hobbies

reserved hobbies

calm hobbies

Mine?

It was different – when I was younger

!FIGHT ME!

I learned to fight

I learned to throw axes

I learned to dish plate

I learned to sew under armour

All of this so I could chuck axes

All of this to rage *safely*

All of this because a safe outlet is important

All because everyone at events knows the rules

All because marshals enforce them

But don’t forget …

My former hobby could definitely beat up your hobby!
