Daily prompt: Don’t want to skite, but…

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?

But you see, I can do this already.

I don’t need the ‘if you could…’

Hypnotise myself, chuck a bit of time distortion into the subconscious, and she’ll be apples, mate.

You don’t believe me, do you. But it’s true. Admittedly I’m not as good at it as I used to be, owing to not needing it so much these days. I don’t do things that I find a drag, and the good stuff – I’ve developed the art of revelling in it and relishing it to the full, so making it seem to last longer would be sheer self-indulgence. And that would never do, would it.

In the past, though… A Mothers’ Morning Tea springs to mind. Come and meet the mothers of your child’s classmates? Me? A fish up a tree would be downright comfy by comparison. But a bit of hypnotic wind-up and I skated through it without even checking my watch.

Doesn’t do to get too gung-ho about it, though. In my three-job days, I got by by using time distortion to make four hours’ sleep a night seem like eight, and while my mind accepted it, my body ultimately jacked up. Not clever. Although possibly, in the circumstances, the lesser of two evils.

Maybe I should run a hypnosis clinic for those embarking on long-haul flights: Three sessions, my lovelies, and 24 hours locked in a tin can will whip by in a flash…

  1. I’ll sign up. Sounds like, not to be punny, exactly what the doctor ordered.

    Tricking the mind is easy. Tricking the body… that’s a whole nother apple card.

    apple cart.

    I’d love to be hypnotized to better endure an 11 hour trans-Atlantic flight. Good idea!

    I do like the idea of hypnotherapy for those who need it. Since we’re mostly home bodies, and only go relatively short distances to visit family, I shall leave that for others. Life is too good to change it! 🙂

  6. I think mothers become amazingly adept at altering time to survive and to achieve the seemingly impossible. So skite away, you deserve it. (And set up your hypnosis business because I think you’re on a winner there.)
