Response 1: A Scorching Start and End
Beep. Beep. CRASH! The alarm clock spins across the floor. “It’s the end of days for clocks” I exclaim. It makes me giggle. It’s 9am and already the world is buzzing outside. Sipping on the last of the orange juice, I survey the traffic from my window. CHAOS. Glad I have nowhere to go today. The TV is not working saving me from the doom and gloom of the morning news. I pull a bag of peanut M&Ms out the cupboard. I’m choosing a breakfast that melts in the mouth not in the hand… quite an apt choice today. I open the patio door and lay on the ground. The heat prickles my skin. I take a final look at the sun as it breaks through our atmosphere and starts to scorch the earth. I click play on my iPod and ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ rings out. I love this song.
