Daily Prompt: Meddle

via Daily Prompt: Meddle

Don’t meddle in other people’s affairs.  Don’t meddle in something that isn’t your business.  Don’t be a meddler.  Don’t meddle in politics.

How many times have we heard this?  Who came up with these words of advice anyway? How many people still do this kind of stuff?

This word always makes me think of busybody old ladies sitting around gossiping with the blue wigs and drinking tea.

Some people mistake this word with “metal” because of the pronunciation.

Can one meddle in a good way?  Is community advocacy a good way of meddling?  How else can one meddle in a positive way?
