2010 November PAD- Day 11

PAD, Day 11. The prompt today was to write a poem with the title “No One Wants (blank)”.

No One Wants to Know

When someone asks, “Hey, how’s it going?”
they don’t really want to know that your washing
machine is on the fritz again, or your cat just died,
or your mother-in-law was recently diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s, or your insurance won’t
cover your surgery, because it is a pre-existing
condition and you haven’t met your waiting
period yet. When someone asks, “Hey,
how’s it going?”, what they really mean is “hi”.
