“You must have been warned
against letting the golden hours slip by;

but some of them are golden
only because we let them slip by.

James M. Barrie

British Author
(1860 – 1937)

Do you remember Freddie Fender’s 1975 hit single, “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights”? (Just CTRL-click here to view and listen.)

Today, our Meme Express prompt is all about time-wasters. Here are a few questions, to get your mental wheels rolling:

What distractions delight you most?
Do you fritter away hours with online games?
How about video games?
Are you a daydreamer?
Would you rather sit and chat with a friend?
Have you ever had an imaginary friend?
What is your favorite time-waster?
Do you draw inspiration from these seemingly idle moments?
(Perhaps such time is not wasted at all!)

Feel free to use the quotation, questions and images . . . or not. It’s up to you!

Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)

Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.

  1. How about musing about a cat's daydream? Did you ever wonder what that cat might be thinking . . . when she appears to be zoned out?
