Daily Prompt: Festivus for the Rest of Us

You have been named supreme ruler of the universe. Your first order of business is creating and instituting a holiday or festival in your honor. What day of the year is your holiday? What special events will take place? Describe YOU DAY in as great a detail as you can muster: the special foods we’ll consume, the decorations we’ll use…everything.

Supreme Ruler of the Universe. That’s a bit much, but if I have to, I’ll roll with it.

As much as I have always dreamt about being a ruler of a strange and wonderful fantasy land, being the ruler of the universe would be too overwhelming for me. I’m too humble to revel in the glory of such a title.

I, instead, would make it a day for the people. I would probably have a day for the GLBTQIA community instead. If it wasn’t already being celebrated, it would be a day of celebration for the legislative passing of equality – predominantly, marriage equality.

I mean, who am I. Why should I get my own special day, for, essentially, doing nothing. It’s no different to giving The Kardashians an Emmy / Oscar for their outstanding acting abilities. They’re famous for being famous. Famous for doing nothing. Famous for having a reality show, where they do nothing.

I don’t want to be like that. I want to be entitled  to receive such accolades. I would rather receive the title for initiatives, like cleaning up the earth in a parallel universe which I would be more welcoming of. If that were the case, then the day would be more of a celebration of the salvation of parallel earth.

Or I might just have a day of general fabulousness.

Fabula Periodique

 Everybody should get together and dress up in incredibly elaborate costumes, wearble art, and incredibly stunning gowns….

… you get the idea…

So that’s just the costumes…!!

As for the rest of the day, it would be full of festivities, kind of like mixing Carnivale and Mardi Gras together into one giant super camp day.

There would be dancing everywhere… In the street, at work, on the train. There would be music everywhere.

There would be one special area in each town for a main stage, and a constant display of performances – like an end of year dance recital , or a talent show, but each town would have one at the same time, and they would all be streamed live over the internet, and random towns would be shown on giant screens near the main stage in between live performances.

The air would smell of citrus and fresh mint. There would be countless food stalls lining the streets. They would all sell a multitude of dishes and cuisines, but each would need to have a signature dish with either a citrus or a mint flavor / taste as the main feature of the dish. There would also be an array of special dishes that are cooked specifically for this day, for my day. Like chicken, pineapple and mint salad; or a watermelon, apple juice and mint mocktail. Dark chocolate orange mousse. So velvety and light and creamy, it almost dissolves on the tongue, and it will just keep the people wanting more.



Meanwhile, for those of you who are obsessed with fashion, check out Capitol Couture and get a box of tissues, because if a Spring / Summer collection gets your juices flowing, then this will bring you close to climax. *lol*
