Could YOU Handle The Truth?

I’ve been avoiding blogging.

I know, awful. I wasn’t feeling terribly inspired, to be honest. But today I thought perhaps I should motivate myself. By motivate myself, I mean procrastinate reading a play I should have read over the summer but didn’t, and now I have a lecture on it at 9am tomorrow morning. Have I read a word of it? Do I even know what the play is about? Could I even name two of the characters? NOPE.

The play is Oedipus Rex.

It might not. I might read it. I might spend the next 3 hours on Facebook and Tinder and regret it horribly. So many options.)

Today’s Daily Prompt is Truth Serum – if you had one vial, who would you use it on and what would you ask?

I’ve had it stuck in my head all week).
