I do not dabble in pointless blathering: 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 would choose to speed things up a little.
I can think of a dozen or more highly- unpleasant situations where I would want to speed time up… Like say, during the time spent at the dentist’s, or like a really boring science lesson, when five minutes feel like an eternity. (sorry, science lovers!)
Granted, there are many situations where we would like to slow the time, for instance, the time spent eating a particularly delicious ice cream, or during sleep time where you would fancy a couple more hours of shut- eye.
However, these savoury moments can simply be replicated, you know what I mean? Like buying another ice cream, or catching up on sleep during the weekends.
I think the choice really depends on the percentage of pleasant moments in your life, versus the unpleasant moments. If you feel that life has more pleasant moments than unpleasant ones, then choosing to slow down an action that usually zooms by would be clever of you. Likewise for the other situation.
Nonetheless, the choice still rests upon your shoulders. But what’s the phrase again?
Ah, yes. Choose wisely.
