Lamont and Dude Take on the Daily Prompt

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Trick Questions.” A Pulitzer-winning reporter is writing an in-depth piece — about you. What are the three questions you really hope she doesn’t ask you?

“Dude.”
“Right?”
“Dinosaurs are notorious for having a small brain in proportion to their body size, am I right?”
“No disputing that, Lamont.”
“And humans the opposite, right?”
“Right, but I have some doubts.”
“Me too. How many times have you been human, Dude?”
“I don’t know. At least a dozen.”
“Do you really think you were a LOT smarter than you were as a dinosaur?”
“Depends what you mean by smart. It’s really all about survival and propagating the species and I did fine. Anything else? But OTHER intelligence? Intellect? Dinosaurs didn’t need it. They had raw power. Arrrggggh.”
“You sound like a pirate, Dude.”
“Yeah, I know. I miss the old roars, don’t you? But what about you, Lamont? do you think you have been a lot smarter as a human than as a dinosaur?”
“I know I’m too smart to answer this prompt and give away to the world what I wouldn’t tell a Pulitzer Prize Winning reporter. I might not be prey any more, but I sure as hell know a trap when I see one.”

  1. And the dinosaurs are still amongst us, but I think they call them politicians today. I wish I had a Dude and Lamont to take over this prompt. Today I was completely at a loss.
