i wrote a song… in my mind

it’s not the end of the world

with 5 comments

so after classes today i went shopping to get some groceries for the week.  the place was mad packed!  i only stopped in to grab a couple things.  and you know how they tell you not to go shopping when you’re hungry?  well, i didn’t do that.  i was starving, so what should’ve just been an in and out thing, turned into a full sweep of the store.  seriously, you would’ve thought it was the end of the world and people were stocking up on survival food or something.  i thought maybe i just missed something in the news.  did they say something about the world ending today?  i must’ve missed it.  or i thought maybe b/c gas was running out, people were getting ready to hibernate in their homes.  stock up on food and never come out of their house again until gas comes back.

but it got me thinking, what would i do if i knew the world was going to end today?  well, here’s a couple options:

start eating like crazy – the world is ending, why not enjoy food without fear of what the scale will say tomorrow?  me and a friend have a list of places we wanted to try.  i think i’d hit those up with him.  and i’d definitely make a stop at la fonda.  if you haven’t been there (to any of the locations in atlanta), you must.  it’s my favorite restaurant in atlanta.  delicious cuban food.  seriously, end of the world, i’m partying at la fonda.

visit family – i’d jet home to see my parents in charlotte.  they keep up pretty well with current events (thanks for korean newspapers) so i’m sure they’d know if the world was ending before i did.  me and my parents didn’t really have the best relationship growing up, so i think we’d talk about that and enjoy our time together followed by a nice group hug before the world ended.  i’d make sure my sister joined us too.

hang out with friends – i could just stay right where i was and call a bunch of my friends over and we’d just hang out and talk, eat some ice cream and play some monopoly.  ok, maybe not monopoly.  i don’t want to ruin any friendships before the world ends.  but being with friends would definitely be a pretty fun and chill way of spending the end of the world.

make new friends – why not right?  i mean, the world is freaking ending, i’m sure some people are lonely or don’t have a place to go.  maybe spend the time to get to know my neighbors and let them know that we’re having a monopoly party upstairs at my place and if they could bring the ice cream, that’d be awesome.  no ice cream = no new friends.  i’m just kidding of course.  but some sort of snack would be appreciated, especially of the dessert variety.

buy the biggest, most expensive thing i can buy – that’s not really saying much cause it’s not like i have a lot of money or anything.  it’s kind of like when you were a kid and you had that mad dash at chuck e. cheese when you’ve earned a bunch of tickets and want to get whatever the biggest thing is that you can afford with your 15 tickets or whatever.  but in this case, i’d have 15 bucks instead of 15 tickets.  which is actually probably similar in value.  i dunno, i’d probably buy butterfly rub-on tattoos or something (which is what me and some friends almost did one time at one of those ticket-earning places).

break as many laws as possible – within reason of course, not that any part of this is reasonable in the first place.  i mean, i know i can’t be the only one who would be thinking about doing this either.  i mean, who wouldn’t go looting if you knew there were no consequences.  i guess this makes my last point pretty useless.  why spend my last $15 when i could just steal something worth… i dunno, $30.  see, i already doubled my money.  i’d probably start a fight or something while i was at it.  haven’t you ever wondered what it’d feel like to punch someone in the face?  i have.

text people like mad! – this one just came to me.  i don’t have a text plan (so please don’t text me, you’re costing me 35 cents or whatever to receive it).  if it was the end of the world, i would go text crazy!!  “how r u?” and “u want 2 grab dinner @ la fonda?”  man, i would t9 so crazy that my thumbs would seriously sand my phone down to a nub.

what would you do if you knew the world was ending today?

  3. I’d enter a Starbucks, order a drink, fart as loud as I could, and then run out with the drink without paying for it.
