DP Daily Prompt: Nothin’ But A Good Time
Imagine that tomorrow, all your duties and obligations evaporate for the day. You get the day all to yourself, to do anything you please. What type of fun activities would make your day?
I thought of something which is probably not related to this prompt but it was funny. A contractor once told a navy commodore, “Sir all you have to do is say yes and your mansion would be built.”
The commodore smiled and said, “Is it some kind of magic you are telling me about, I only have to say yes and the mansion would appear.” This is how the contractors bribe the officers in our part of the world.
It has no relevance to the prompt, or maybe it does such as all my duties and obligations evaporate for a day, I get the day all to myself to do anything I please. What kind of fun activities would make my day.
The first couple of hours I’d be in a state of unbelief, pinching myself until all of me is blue, is it really true I get to do whatever I want, something which I enjoy? Next couple of hours I’d thank whoever it is allotted me this day to have fun.
When I’m done thanking and use my time of unbelief. I realized I’ve already spent four valuable hours of the day by my useless thought and action.
It is time for lunch, I have to cook to satisfy my hunger pains.The good genie gave me all day to have fun but forgot to employ a helping hand to do some of my chores. Yes I get it I have to imagine all that is taken care of.
My stomach refuses to believe that I can be happy without food. I don’t think that’s going to work. So I spend an hour cooking,eating and doing the dishes.
Because I decided to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner all at the same time to save some hours for fun, stupid me I can’t move now. What am I to do? I called the good genie to magically remove all the food out of my stomach. The genie was in a bad mood because while I had the day off, the genie had to work harder for all those people who had the day off as well.
I ended up having no fun at all. My time was spent trying to make the genie happy.
