Head in the Cloulds

I pride myself on being a down to earth, realistic man, but there are times when I wish were more idealistic. But that would probably be a terrible idea. I’m afraid that if I gave up my pragmatic ways, some bad juju might head my way. And the last thing I need right now in my life is chaos and controversy. So I think I’ll get my head out of the clouds, throw in the towel on this whole idealism shtick, zipper my lips, and stick with my practical pragmatism.

Written for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (terrible), Ragtag Daily Prompt (pragmatic), Your Daily Word Prompt (juju), Word of the Day Challenge (controversy), The Daily Spur (towel), and MMA Storytime (zipper).

    Do you really think idealism and magic go hand in hand? I think if idealism as perhaps slightly naive but at least highly aspirational. We need people with high goals, that’s for sure. We can barely achieve the minimum even so (thinking climate change policy here). Juju is a tricky prompt. I had no idea what it meant, I have to admit.

    I liked the way you weaved all the prompts together. Got to watch out of that bad juju!
