Daily Prompt
Cue the Violins
If your life were a movie, what would its soundtrack be like? What songs, instrumental pieces, and other sound effects would be featured on the official soundtrack album?

My life is never going to be a movie, thank god. Even the most artsy-fartsy movie-maker would baulk at trying to make a silk purse out of that sow’s ear. Although when you think about it, if they can cast Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, whose defining characteristics include being 6’5”, then you have to assume that artistic veracity has nothing to do with anything.

And then there’s the matter of perception…

What’s beauty? What constitutes success? How hard is hardship? And perhaps most important of all in movie terms – what’s interesting?

Not this prompt, or this post.

So maybe I’ll settle for the theme from Days of Our Lives. Never watched it, but it seems suitably trivial.

    …and the band plays on. You captured my feelings exactly.

    You never fail to surprise and delight me with your no-nonsense response to prompts. I used to feel the same when my 9th grade students didn’t respond to a prompt and explained with wit and passion why they didn’t. I’d give you an A for the line “Not this prompt, not this post” alone.
