The Bad Influence


I’m Vaguely Aware of Keanu Reeves as an Actor. But what Really Fascinates Me is Your Fascination With Him.

Fifty Words Theme Challenge #68: Keanuverse

He is compelling, I’ll grant you that. Handsome too. He’s spiritual in many ways. It’s sort of spooky.

Your cultish love for him is almost palpable. That’s what he means to me. It’s what he means to you.

I’ve spent a lifetime avoiding television and movies. But I’ve noticed Keanu regardless.

What can I say? The guy makes so many people happy. It makes me happy to have something to write about too. It is sort of spooky.

Thank you for the prompt from Steroids in the land of Sinus Infection, country of Covid 19, planet Brain Fog. I meant, thank you, Jonica Bradley. I had long covid starting January 2020, and still get foggy at times myself.

How fun! Thank you.

We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
