The Daily Post prompt for today is called Full Disclosure. We were given this information:

A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?

I don’t need to think twice about my answer to that question. It is: NO, NEVER, NOT A CHANCE, GET IT AWAY FROM ME, I DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!  I hope my answer is clear to all concerned.

Years ago I observed that people who are psychotic say the things that go through their minds without editing their thoughts first. I pray that never happens to me since I know what a mess my mind is.

And there is no way I would want to hear anyone else’s unedited thoughts either!  I choose to stay in ignorance.

  1. Oh gosh, no way, would I want that either. What a curse it would be. I already struggle shutting MY brain off from yacking so much when I try to concentrate or sleep. Great post!


    1. It sure felt like a clear choice in this instance! That “gift” would be a nightmare.

      Thanks for letting me know you liked my response! It was fun to do and was the quickest post I’ve ever written.


  2. uh oh, I already DO hear everyone else’s thoughts! Every single word!! Of course, it’s all made up, in my own mind but there is definitely an ongoing conversation. Maybe I accepted that chip when I was a kid but part of the deal was forgetting that I was ever given the choice. Hmm, thought provoking!

    (Ow, what is that thing poking on the inside of my cheek??)
