The Perfect View

Writing 101, Day 2: Just A View If you had the power to get somewhere — anywhere — where would you go right now?

Would you believe me if I said I’d never been on a plane before? I can’t believe it myself! I’m longing to get on a plane and this year I’m making it happen. I’m far from nervous about jumping on a plane. The destination is irrelevant, I would be happy just stepping foot on a one!

I can only imagine how it feels to be high in the sky and glancing down at the breathtaking view.

Once the plane lands; I’d slowly walk down the stairs and then I’d find a convenient spot to compose myself. I would stand still for a few moments; taking in long deep breaths as I questioned whether or not I was still asleep.

I can only dream right now…Get me on a plane ASAP! Right after I get some sleep! My body is exhausted, my mind is restless, yet my hands are still able to type away…

Insomnia, what did I ever do to you?

The Best-Case Scenario

When I initially read today’s prompt, I felt as if I was having a mental block. I couldn’t think of a worst case scenario; in fact I wouldn’t allow myself to do so. Deep down I could probably think of something, but I refuse to go there! So instead I shall tell you about my day!

I felt like a tourist in my own city! I had a meeting to attend, I made sure I had more than enough time to get there. It was going well, until I asked Google Maps for assistance. I paced up and down the street following the directions given to me. I shortly realised I was lost! I asked a passerby for directions; he asked if I had a map, then he took a quick glance at it and told me to turn right.

There was no right! Was he directing me to walk right into a wall? I would have preferred if he had said he had no idea where it was! If you don’t know…you don’t know, it’s that simple!

The next person I approached admitted that she had never heard of the street. She directed me to her colleague; I could see he was in the middle of something, but he still offered to help. He thoroughly explained the route to me and made sure I was 100% certain of where I was going.

I am ever so grateful! I could have ended up being a little late, instead I was a little early just as I had planned!
