If you wrote a book, what would it be titled?

It occurred to me just reading the titles of these threads what a "common thread" we all have. So many of us, if we wrote a book, would be writing the same book. Just curious what people would title theirs.

Lol, the first thing that came to mind was "....Is This Thing On????"  Referring to when someone speaks into a microphone, and there's no response from the audience, lol!   :unsure:

Mine would be something like "F'real?!  (True) Tales from the Crypt".

...Because certain members of my dad's family wish I was dead, & I wish they were dead as well.  So it's a wash, lol. ;)

Most honest:

Distance makes the heart healthier.

Alternate title:

That's NOT what I said - Setting the story straight at last.

One day I'll matter enough
I choose this day to rise up and be my best self, not succumbing to that which I sense is inside me, trying to drag me down.

Love is an action verb. You will know if it is genuine by the actions that support it, not by the frequency of the spoken words.

I love this thread and i love these titles, some very very sad but gripping movies could be made.

I think mine would be  "so you think you can f**k with me?" - mainly because my inner strength does their heads in, let's face it what choice do we have?, we have to be strong to get through the s**t they through at us.
