It’s late on New Year’s Eve when you hear a knock on your door. You go to it and open the door to find an old, weathered looking man standing in front of you. Before you can ask what he needs he begins to talk.
“It’s time for the new but it can fall back. What you choose you should know will be a renewed track”
“I’m sorry. I don’t understand. What can I do for you.” You ask.
“The decision is not one you should go about lightly, you will continue on path both daily and nightly.”
“Okay this is weird. Do you need me to call you a cab or something.”
“Do not think of things as only a joke, when the calendar changes heed the words I spoke”
And with that the old man faded away into nothing. Was it all a dream? A mid-afternoon aberration?
Nope. It was all real. What the old man spoke of was the start of a new challenge for the New Year. On Wednesday I will pose a what if question I want you to answer. You can post and link back, upload a picture that fits the theme, write a poem or just leave a comment right here.
Wednesday’s what if is a free for all, no holds barred writing challenge to bring a little excitement to our day. There are no rules except to have fun and link back if you post on your own site.
Today’s challenge based upon the cryptic messages the old man was spewing?
What if you could relive any year of your life starting on New Year’s day?
The cryptic part of the decision is it would mean you also needed to relive every day of every year from that day on. So has anyone made a mistake they would be willing to relive their lives from a former point to correct. Anyone think if they had it to do over they could do things differently? Anyone not want to even consider it?
Whatever thought the question brings to mind you can let us know. Please tag the post whatifchallenge and add a link back to this challenge post.
Next Wednesday there will be a new challenge so please add your response before then. Happy New Year’s!
