“Life is all about having fun, if you are not having fun and making the best of things, then what is the point of being here in the first place?”
- Madame Jeanne Calment
Why are you here in the first place? I would give out a loud “to have fun!” with matching boombastic stereos flapping on the sides. Some would probably raise their eyebrows and say “is she nuts?” or “no ambition at all ” then will continue saying blah! blah! blah! about his riches and fortune.
Haha. What if I responded with “to learn”, yes. That is an acceptable answer, and I will receive lots of nodding heads which looks like bubbles in tub. Then another answer of mine shall be “to live”, yes. Perfect. Now, they are rushing on their table sides to get their calendar desks, planning their career ahead. Shoulder to shoulder, brushing against each other, without talking and without batting an eyelash. Waiting for the elevator to open up.
Dear me thought the young executive. “I have a meeting by 9″
Well. Well. Why didn’t you get here in much earlier manner? Hmmm?
30… 28… 26…24
“Shucks! Need to be at the deck for my cigarettes. Geesh. I’m craving for it now, what kind of an elevator is this by the way”, said the girl clad in leather boots and stylish jacket straight from Zara.
Well. Well. Smoke your pot at your garden wouldn’t you say?
See? and the list of thoughts will go on, all linked with the “to live” response. My third reply to that question would be “to love”. People will stop and look at me. Stare at me then after assuming they have read me all over, will say softly, take this, softly “aaaaaw….you sweet thing…you are right” then off they will proceed with ordering flowers and all. Matched with teddy bears and cuddly toys.
Artificial symbols of love, but, take this, majority of secretaries already know your favorite color miss. Hahaha. Because, it’s a yearly assignment for them. They already know the favorite ball game of your son. Birthdays, anniversaries and so on. Why?
Because your loved one, whom you thought is a “sweety” nice one, was the one signing all the checks that was used by their secretaries to buy you those roses, sweets, and all. Hahahaha.
But, haven’t you thought of this idea? That the core of my would-be response, those three phrases is all about having fun. We can cut the artificality. We can be real. To learn is to have fun, and everything about having fun. To live is to have fun, and everything about having fun, as well as To love is to have fun. and again, everything about having fun.
back to the elevator…
So, let it be…
Every words here are just part of the “cliche’”. Its up to you what to make of it. Just a paragraph long of simply….cliche. Grins.
