A whole mess of prompts

I've been slacking off with prompts lately. Here are some recent ones.

"I eat fortune cookies for good luck," from a poem by Wendell Bullock. Wendell rewrote the prompt into one of his boxing sketches for last weekend's meeting.

Older than that is this from K.K.: "Life is like a game. Some people get the green cards, and some people  get the pink." If you missed Chaz's two-person play short play based on this prompt - well, maybe if you ask very nicely, he'll present it again.

Another older prompt: "She's not into me," again proposed by K.K.

There are two prompts from the most recent meeting: "Lying is his native language," a line from (I think, someone correct me if I'm wrong) a very old poem by K.K.  The other, proposed by Marion, is "Is this about anything?", which was a comment someone made about something presented this weekend.

Use any of these, or all of them, or none of them. Now, get writing!

This will be the final evening of Spring, the last full day before Summer begins, so who knows what sort of change-of-season shenanigans will take place?
