Today’s Prompt: Who’s the most interesting person (or people) you’ve met this year?
What on earth am I supposed to write about? This is a ridiculous topic! Even more ridiculous than the music one! The year has barely begun; it’s only April for god’s sake! And I haven’t left the confines of my home since December so the number of people I’ve met is literally zero. I am not exaggerating.
Today’s twist: Turn your post into a character study.
And what on earth is a character study!?
Anyway, I just had a thought on how to answer the prompt. (I actually had two thoughts. My initial plan was to write about meeting myself, but that would come across as obnoxious and self-absorbed, so I chose plan B.)
The most interesting person I met this year is this malay bloke who sold burgers to me.
As I placed my order, I told him I wanted ketchup instead of chilli.
And he asked back, thick or dilute?
And five minutes later, I sunk my teeth into, questionably, the best burger in the world
A person who makes burgers for a living can either be A) very committed or B) stuck with a dead end job. I’d like to go with option A. His commitment to burger-selling is most probably attributed to his childhood, where he experienced a traumatizing incident whereby a burger probably saved his life. This could happen in a number of ways: I like to imagine that burgers came to life and played with him at night and kept him company. If you find my thesis nonsense, then feel free to go with option B instead.
How’s that for a character study?
