E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt — Weird and Silly

It’s time once again for E.M. Kingston’s The Sunday Ramble. Her prompt is based upon a certain topic about which she asks five questions. We are invited to ramble on about that topic however we wish. Today’s topic is “Weird and Silly.”

1. What are five things you could buy at a gas station to make the cashier look at you oddly?

I haven’t set foot in a gas station since buying my electric car six months ago. But I imagine if I pulled my electric vehicle into a gas station and said I wanted to fill it up with gas or buy a few cans of motor oil, that might give pause to the cashier. If I asked for some sushi or marijuana, that might raise some eyebrows, too. Or a diamond ring, maybe. How about a horse saddle?

2. If someone were to narrate your life, who would you choose to do it?

Edward Everett Horton, who narrated Fractured Fairy Tales, which was a segment on the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.

3. Have you ever given an impromptu speech about something you know nothing about?

No, I have only given impromptu speeches about topics that I know at least a little bit about.

4. What will be the most laughable artifacts they find from our generation?

Pet Rocks.

5. Time stands still for everyone except you for an hour. How would you spend that time?

Rob a bank or two.

    Great answers. I remember Fractured Fairy Tales and was gifted a pet rock.

    I got quite a giggle at the first answer also, Fandango 🙂 Robbing the bank is genius, and I thought of it but did not want to incriminate myself in the event that time actually does stand still 🙂

    I loved fractured fairy tales, I’m guessing they’d be politically incorrect nowadays 🙄

    I loved Fractured Fairytales. I was looking up the name for the narrator in the George of the Jungle movie. It’s Keith Scott. In the process, though, I ran across Brendan Frazier himself doing narration for something else. He’s pretty great at it.
