Imagine A World Where Everything Is Random Wherever You Go
Imagine a world where everywhere you go random things happen. Environmental peace does not exist anymore and the force of randomness pierces through reality…
I wake up early, it’s a Sunday morning and I’m feeling fresh and fine, until I look at my clock and realise it’s - MONDAY. I jump out of bed and eat a nutritious bowl of fruit loops… don’t judge me. I begin my boring routine of making my lunch and organising my snack, just like every day. I brush my teeth and sit down to watch TV. I only have 20 minutes before I need to leave for school. I have time, nothing should go wrong today except for a boring day… right?
Tired and exhausted, I am walking to school. The same boring path… down the windy footpath, across the creaky bridge and through the playground of screaming children. You get the point, this walk is boring. Then at that moment a car with fins is flying through the air, straight over the towering trees. What was that about? I keep walking… surely I imagined that.
Suddenly a flying pig soars down from the sky then explodes before my very eyes! I didn't even know flying pigs were real??? As soon as I turn around, a walking potato comes out from behind a tree singing a children's song. What is happening? Why is this happening?? Is this real??? I freak out but I don’t want to go home, but it is not safe to stay outside. I decide my only option is to live and hide in the pipelines beneath the town. Surely nothing random can get me down here?
I have been going through this for a few days now and I think nearly everyone has ran away from all the chaos, and it's only getting worse from here. But the strangest thing is happening (more strange than flying pigs and walking potatoes) I'm starting to get used to this random world. Just when I think I’m used to it, something else weird happens and then I am not used to anything again. It’s an endless cycle.
It's been a few weeks and I have made a decision. I am going to stop this nonsense! I heard a source on the news say “a phone with potatoes as the wallpaper MUST be destroyed”. This is my chance… I started my quest at the Apple Store. They seem to have custom wallpapers but no potatoes - WAIT! There it is! But at that exact moment a chicken tried to jump on me! I see seeds on the floor and I pick them up quicker than a squirrel putting a nut in its mouth. I threw them at the chicken and to my surprise it actually ate it… and EXPLODED!!
I destroy the phone and suddenly the place rumbles and disappears. I am left standing on the hard concrete floor. I look around… no flying pigs… no walking potatoes… no attacking chickens… no exploding seeds. Just a normal town. I think I saved the world!
Imagine a world where everything is normal…
