Five-Hundred Word Challenge 893: Five Seconds

A bit of a cough but then it’s all getting up and zooming about. Cramming as much as one can into a small gap of five seconds. Perhaps after that point the day will take off and maybe go a slight bit faster to make up for lost time. There is no telling at this point, but it will happen at some point and perhaps that day is today.

Until then it’s just the rushing about. Only five seconds to get as much done before time resumes. That is not a lot of time, but I’m sure that with enough time it could be a lot of time. Just need t0o make sure that I plan my route carefully.

Need to also make sure I’m clothed and ready to go. Don’t want to run outside naked by mistake. That would be wasted time in this particular situation.

Maybe I leap out of bed and launch myself through the clothes of which I am going to wear for the day. Somehow I’ve already showered so there would be no need to have a shower as I’m already shower fresh and ready to go. The bed is perhaps also a shower. No wait; maybe it has a shower built into it so that when I’m waking up it has already showered me and therefore I’m fresh and have woken up due to the entering a state of being shower fresh.

Perhaps I will also launch through the bedroom door. Normally this would not be advised, but considering the time constraint that I have, I feel that it’s an acceptable thing to contend with at a later date. Door will probably repair itself anyway. No issues there. Also gives me a more dramatic exit and entry which of course helps in these situations.

From there I should probably sprint to the backyard and water all of the plants. Now of course this might take some time, but it should be able to be fit within a five second period. Will just need to move really quickly. The plants will be hydrated and happy and I too will be happy knowing that the plants will be hydrated and happy.

From there… I’m not too sure as to where to go. I guess the best process would be to sprint to the front of the house and start walking to wherever it is that I need to walk so that I can get a few things done before time catches up. If that happens, then I’m sorted. If not… well, I’ve lost some time that I probably didn’t have in the first place. Could be worse. There are other things to worry about that could be much worse than this. However, I’m sure that I can get a lot done in those five seconds. Maybe I can get a lot more done than I am allowing myself to believe. Maybe, just maybe, I can get everything (and more) done within that limited amount of time.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:47:24

A bit of silly writing.

Written at home.
