In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry….”
Okay… I know I look all straight laced and reserved but there’s a wild child inside who would love to slip her leash and go feral. I’ve been thinking about what I want to do before I die (not planning on it anytime soon) just things I want to experience and do and people I want to meet.
So if the world was ending tomorrow… I’d max out my credit card on all the things I want but am too responsible to get. I’d gather family around, tell them I love them and then I’d go to a fancy restaurant and order Beef Wellington and risotto… and eat the most decadent dessert.
I’d try to go to the places I want to see… Japan (but only specific things) I want to see the Empress’ gardens and the Berzerk Wall… then I’d go to England and meet an online friend that I’ve known for over 10 yrs. I feel quite motherly towards him; he’s a year older than my son and a writer for a newspaper. He’s a great writer too. We used to role play in a forum based game, he made me a better writer a sort of mentor for my character and elevated my writing.
I’d go to Colorado and I would eat pot brownies and get a massage while listening to the music of Robert Mirabal and watching a water feature cascade down a wall. I saw the place on Discovery Channel and I’ve been obsessed ever since.. I mean there’s hot brownies with fudge and chocolate sauce… and ice cream and a massage… and music and massage.. and water sounds. what’s not to love about that?! It would such a mellow way to end the world. I’ve never tried any recreational drugs, but I think I got a contact high at a Kiss concert..
Ooooh I’d buy me some really high stiletto heels and some leather and go all biker chick… and see how it felt then I’d also try the Goth look… and maybe get a mohawk… just cause.
I guess you could say I’d go out with a bang. Do all the things I’ve been too afraid to do, eat the foods I know I shouldn’t, wear the clothes I’ve always wanted to try and do something daring and wild. Let people talk me into doing things I normally wouldn’t (to an extent)
