SoCS — What is the Key?

KeyMy wife asked me if I knew what the key to a happy marriage is.

My son asked me if I knew what the key to success is.

My daughter asked me if I knew what the key to raising children is.

My friend asked me if I knew what the key to a strong and lasting friendship is.

My subordinate asked me if I knew what the key to getting promoted is.

My doctor asked me if I knew what the key to good health is.

My clergyman asked me if I knew what the key to paradise is.

I said to them all, “How the fuck would I know? I don’t even know where the key to my goddam car is.”


Written for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, where the prompt word is “key.”

    There are many keys for each question. May we find a few of them.

    Thanks for that laugh. So many keys, to so many things we should all feel like jailers.
