In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fireside Chat.”
Today’s prompt: What person whom you don’t know very well in real life — it could be a blogger whose writing you enjoy, a friend you just recently made, etc. — would you like to have over for a long chat in which they tell you their life story?
Its interesting how people want to know about others life.. you get to understand the person better.. sometimes it even causes a paradigm shift in the way you percieve things around you or you thoughts w.r.t a particular person. It is a beautiful way to generate mutual trust and respect for another person. No one knows you better than you. Thats why people write autobiographies. They want others to know what they have been to be what they are… thats what some people at wordpress are doing. Respect all you guys out there. And thats why we love them.. even movies.. they build a better undersatanding of a person. They might think they have an absolutely non entertaining story. It is sometimes these very lives that inspire us the mosr This is what i think about life stories.
Was that a bit too serious?
Dont worry i am planning to have a chat with a funny being.. so get ready.. 😉
Since this is a WordPress daily prompt i thought i would chat with someone i would never have met if it wasnt for wordpress and this blog.
This person is someone who brings a smile on my face everytime he/she posts a comment. His/Her posts are thought provoking when it comes to global issues. But he/she proclaims to be from outer space.. a non earthling in his/her words. Presenting you Mr./Miss Migarium
Why do i think i saw a smile on you face migarium?.. its migo in short as you have mentioned in your site. So thats how i am going to address you here.
So why would i select you? I cant possibly ask me to meet you in cafe coffe day or Mc Donalds or starbucks!! That would give away your identity. Lets bet on the safe boundries thats laid out by wordpress and keep your identity undisclosed to others.
The way i think our conversation would proceed:
Me: “Hello migo, how are you? I hope sitting by the wordpress fireside is not daunting to you“
Migo: some witty remark that i cant come up with. 😛
Me: “what would you like to have. My apologies.. I have no clue about your materials that give you energy to live“
Migo:“There is no need for that. You see i am green in color. Which allows me to make my own food through a process of photosynthesis. I think the water will suffice.“
Me: “Oh sure. Here you go. By the way.. is your food generating process the same as that of plants?“
Migo: “I am sorry my earthling friend i am not allowed to make confidential disclosures about my species.“
Me: “Its ok. I understand.“
Me: “I dont know how to put this but I wanted to know this.. if.. umm.. you are a Mr or Miss.. you see i am writing a blog. And everytime i mention you i have to put it up as he/she, his/her, Mr/Miss.. its tiring to do it again and again.. it might help me.. i completely understand if you dont want to give the details away.“
Migo: ….. psst migo.. you are suppose to fill this up.
Me:“Its the first time i have seen an alien maintain a blog.. called ‘unnecessary news from earth‘. Why would you do that? The news you put out at times are not necessarily unnecessary. It is sometimes substantially important. I myself am unaware of some facts. Do you wish to elaborate?“
Me: “I am sorry i am ranting. You need to speak something.. “
Me: “Can i learn the your language? Is it easy to learn? “
Migo: “I am sorry. You cant learn our language. If you do.. you will be able to decode the signals from my planet. That would breech the security code i signed to come here.“
Me: “Hey!! You know your name reminds me of a word in spanish!!“
Migo: “Which one will that be?“
Me: “The word is amigo. In spanish it means friend. Does your name has a special meaning in your language ?“
Me: “Okay. Do you mind if i call you amigo?“
Me: “Can you do me one more favour? Can you watch the movie ‘koi mil gaya‘? Its about an alien (again!) Just google it for description and decide if you want to see it.. it might seem fictitious but its worth a try.“
Me: “It was nice to meet and have a chat with a non earthling.“
So there we are. I hope you dont mind it migo. Fill in the replies through comments or reblog it and edit it.
Adios amigo (Its spanish.. google translate it 😉 )
