The end is nigh!!! *scream*
Yes, I am back to that topic… Just because my countdown was for naught, does not stop the impending doom that is currently hurtling towards us like a speeding train.
So it’s your last day on Earth and you are…???
For those of use who are not blessed with the luxurious life of our dreams, we are most likely sitting in our offices in front of our computer screens, making all our Doomsday Eve plans for the after hours. That’s all well and good but what if that poor calendar maker who has caused such consternation was a few hours off, and that meteorite hits you while you are sitting in traffic this afternoon? Yes, stranger things have happened…and if you die on the freeway, stuck in traffic, don’t worry, you are already in hell.
So, question: What time is the world ending again? I need to plan my day accordingly after all, I need to know if I need to wake up early or what. Will the meteors and destruction hit us all at the same time or will it start somewhere specific and world its way through the different time zones? If it will, where will it be starting? These are questions that need answers my friends!
I must say though, I love the different tweets and Facebook posts I’ve been seeing, some making fun of the whole situation and others clearly seriously saying their goodbyes and planning for the end. Whether you believe or not, the Mayan’s doomsday prediction was something worth experiencing.
So here’s a suggestion. I say, when we are all grown up and have our own babies, we should all tell them that the apocalypse actually happened and that we are all it’s survivors! A new world-wide conspiracy to keep up going. Just imagine how brilliant it will be, when you’re telling your kids all the stories about what happened to you and how you fought for survival, how you hid in an underground bunker and foraged to feed yourself and basically pulled a whole lot of Indiana Jones/Lara Croft type stunts in the crazy aftermath.
In a more serious light, tomorrow, I’ll be spending my evening with a loved one and making sure that should this really be it, I go happy. I suggest you do the same.
I suggest you make peace with those that matter to you and lay all your regrets to rest, find a reason to make your heart smile and hold on to it, do something that will bring you real joy, and something that you do because you really want to, dance in front of people, sing out loud, laugh loud and proud, give lots of hugs, and get them too, get some end of the world nookie :-), and when you wake up on the 22nd of December to find yourself in one piece, do it all over again.
I haven’t had the greatest life in the world but I think I have done pretty well so far, and so my heart is at peace. If anyone is organising a game night with some good people and laughter, please invite me (30 Seconds is my favourite game for such events) and if there is someone going to a kareoke night somewhere, I’d really love to join.
