100 Words; Past Lives

In your past life; you were a principal across the world. Places in Africa and Asia. I 've heard your stories over beers and tequila. You say the women of Ethiopia the prettiest, in Thailand, the skankiest. Tales I listen to with rapt attention.

You hold public orifice, but won't run for reelection for the brain damage. You aren't in charge at his place of employment, but you'll tell anyone-including your overseer-what to do.

I am in awe of your past life. Be that as it may, what you're doing now is a little more important, by virtue of now...

  1. Reelection for the brain damage? I don't think I'd run the first time, let alone sign up for second term.
    Nice 100.

  2. Oooh intrigued. Love the idea of past lives... This one seems colourful. Though, I too agree that the now is far more important.

    Lizzie; Quite colorful, to say the least.
