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 –
It was different – when I was younger
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!
