The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “No, Thanks.”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “No, Thanks.”

Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?

There are several places I do not want to visit mostly based on irrational fears or things I’ve seen on TV.  For instance, on some survival shows I’ve learned that there are places on Earth that are not for humans. Places where Earth can just be herself. Hint: if there’s no food.. no water… no land there… no habitable place…..  That’s a sign that it’s EARTH’S place.. you don’t belong there. Go Home and leave Earth alone…. you’ll regret it. Trust me.

Examples of Earth places: The Antarctic…  This is where Earth goes when she wants to be alone, like when a man forgets an anniversary and is frozen out. Only the foolhardy tread there.  The Middle of the ocean.. sure there’s food swimming below, but there’s no drinkable water… and no land. It’s like being in an argument with a woman, ever shifting landscapes, you don’t know which way to go, and there’s a chance that a rogue wave will come along and kill you and no one will ever find your body.  Deserts… no water…. very little food… hot.. dry… bleached bones… like a being in the path of dragon’s breath. No thank you…

I also never want to go to Australia. Yes I heard the gasps and murmurs of disbelief but it’s true! Besides the fact that place is just chock full of stuff that wants to kill you, from spiders to sharks every.. single… animal… seems to be a derivative of a rat. Kangaroo, Capybara, wombats, dingos…. everything.   Period…. end of story.. fini.. and all the other words that mean final. No, Nope, Naw, Hell Naw, Ne, Nyet, Bu, Iie….Nein, Non,  etc. I think ya’ll get the picture.

Somalia…. because… Pirates.

There are others…

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
