Daily Prompt – Pace Oddity

If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?

I’d love to do both of these things to a number of different aspects of my life, and it’s quite hard to pick just one…

I’d slow down on weekends, but speed up on Monday’s.

I’d slow down on sleep time, but speed up time spent on transit (including peak hour traffic!)

I’d slow down awesome parties, but speed up boring meetings.

I’d slow down the ageing process.

I’d speed up healing and recovery times from illness, injury and surgery.

I’d speed up admin processing times – seriously, there’s no reason it should take a month for somebody to draft a letter, have it typed and posted to me. Get it together, people!

I’d also speed up international postage – Really? You expect me to wait 6-8 weeks for your so-called ‘super ultra platinum international mega express postage*’


*’super ultra platinum international mega express postage’ may not actually exist, and if it does, and it takes 6-8 weeks then it’s nothing but LIES!
