Daily Post: Partying, Flattery and a Visit from the Grim Reaper

What do partying, starvation and the ‘about’ page of the creator of this blog have in common? The first two are oxymoronic to each other, the third is frankly just flattering (my mother suspects I’m reading my boyfriend’s messages because I just blushed). I can understand why the post on partying has so many views, it was in response to a Daily Prompt challenge which gives me free advertising space on the Daily Post page and the name of the poem I wrote (From Dr. Hyde’s Perspective) was very inviting.

Let’s move onto starvation. Valar Morghulis (the term itself is taken from Game of Thrones by G.R.R. Martin)  is a short story from the point of view of the Grim Reaper who goes onto shroud a little soul in his embrace. But he’s in for a surprise. And as for my About page, all I can say is, I try to be funny… everywhere.

So, conspiracy theories aside, what is the connection between these so very diverse topics? Can it be that everyone is designated to die at some point in time, never mind who they are; a whimsical circumlocutor or a lethargic and bi-polar party animal? Everyone eventually gets a visit from the Grim Reaper, he is the least discriminating of chaps I’ve ever written about and lethargy does invite him so desperately (NOTE TO SELF: Start jogging tomorrow). I don’t know. The more I live, the more I realise how weird this world is. Is the Grim Reaper a party animal? I’d love to form a conga line with him. I don’t know. And thereby hangs a tale.
