Everyone Keeps Secrets

You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) – and what questions would you ask?

My first impression upon reading the daily prompt today was a person I know who might have a secret about me. But then I hesitated. Do I want to know? Oh yeah, ah no. Maybe. Oh forget it. And I put it out of my mind (so I could spend time with my granddaughter).

The prompt popped in my head on the drive home and I thought about the secrets I hold for others. The secrets I swore to keep. That someone trusted me with. So I wouldn’t consent to taking truth serum.

If I wouldn’t consent to taking the truth serum, I couldn’t ask someone else to. They could be keeping secrets for someone else who would not have a chance to consent.

  • I think that’s a good point, I don’t think I would consent to taking truth serum either, but I suppose it does depend on what questions you would ask. To me that’s the key question.
