Sunday Writing Prompt, April 25/21- Define Insanity

I came across this list and was immediately intrigued. Not to mention baffled, and amused 🙂 My, how things have changed…thank goodness, cause I would probably be admitted in a second!

    This list begs so many questions. What exactly is deranged masturbation? How different is it from normal masturbation? And is it just me, or do some of these sound like band names? I’d go to see Bad Habits & Political Excitement or Tobacco & Masturbation in concert. You know?

      Lol! I have SO many questions myself. So much does not make sense, which is why I thought it would be a fun and interesting prompt 🙂

    Well here’s mine… Tried to shape this from a point of view I’m not used to so not entirely satisfied with it but it was a good exercise 🙂

      I’m SO happy you stretched your creative wings with this one. You did an excellent job, Stephanie. I love how you took something so ordinary, and flipped it on its head. GREAT job!!

    As usual, I coloured outside the lines, and didn’t actually define insanity (love the list; I would definitely be admitted!) but . . .

      “Define insanity” was more-so a gentle nudge to help someone struggling with where to go with the prompt. Yours was a very intriguing and enjoyable read!
