Today we are supposed to check out a given writing prompt and see how we can apply it to the subject matter of our blog. Personally, I think it is one that just about everyone can twist to fit any subject:
So here is the first responsibility I need to give out: I really should be working on my online class right now, but here I am on my blog. Once my clone is done with that, housecleaning! And my clone can keep me supplied with coffee. What shall I be doing, you ask? I foresee running, yoga and blogging. How lovely.
Now I do have questions.
How many times can I clone myself? How will they feel about doing all the grunt work? Because I know how I would feel and if they are me……We may have to take turns. Will we share the same memories? If one clone does all the classwork, can I then take the tests, or will I have no idea of what they studied? Plus, if they have my same procrastination traits, will we all simply end up running, practicing our yoga and blogging? Will you be able to tell which posts I (the original) write as opposed to the ones they (the clones) write? Will they grow differently from me as we encounter personality altering stimuli? Perhaps they won’t want to study what I am studying. Perhaps, horror of all horrors, they won’t like coffee. How could this be?!
Will certain other traits come out more in them than I? What if they don’t even like exercise or writing? My laziness may be more pronounced in them. My grandmother used to say lazy was spelled M-A-N-T-H-A. I might end up doing everything and supplying them with coffee!
And I am deliberately not even thinking about my (their) relationship with my husband. Or the confusion the dogs will feel. Will we smell exactly the same? And really, who wants to look at oneself all the time? Physcially or metaphorically. Will I see how truly annoying I can be?
