Live Before You Die

It’s never too late to start really living.  What are you waiting for?

One Day

Imagine that you’re blind, but you have been granted one day to see. What day would you choose?  A day from the past? Today? A day in the future?

If I had to do this I suppose I would choose today just to get it over with.  Starting right now.  Because the first thing I’d like to do is look that deluded sight-granter in the eyes and tell him what I think of his stupid gift.  Unless its some kind of punishment or a cruel joke, in which case it all makes more sense.

Not to appear ungrateful or anything but why would you want to do that to someone?  What a terrifying experience for me if I’ve been blind since birth.  Twenty four hours of trying to cope with a whole new reality and then back to the way things were.  Except for the nightmares.

And what a crushing blow if I’ve lost my sight, accepted my blindness and learned to deal with all the changes and then suddenly I get my sight back for a measly DAY just to have to give it up all over again.

There’s a reason why strange things like this aren’t possible and bizarre wishes don’t come true.  When you’re given a choice of this hell or that one, your third choice should always be ‘neither of the above’, thank you very much, please go away now and leave me alone.  Inflict your miracles on somebody who asked for them.
