Daily Prompt: The Elasticity of the Imagination

Clouds 06.10 (10)

“Look, I told you.”

“What did you tell me? Oh yes, nice photo of a cloud. Seem to be your latest hobby.”

“What is my hobby?”

“Walking around with the camera stuck in the clouds. Where are you going with your computer, the radio and the first aid box. What have you got in that case?”

“They are my survival rations. They are coming to get us.”

“Who? It is a perfectly calm Autumn day.”

“I told you it would happen. All that messing around with the climate. I read that they are even spraying stuff into the sky to make hurricaines and tornados.”

“But I have not seen a strong wind since “Lothar” and that was at least 20 years ago. Even that one blew through in a night. We survived, just had to be careful of falling trees.”

“That was nothing and it was a natural phenomenom. Now they are doing it on purpose. If the climate doesn’t change itself, we will do it. We can do everything.  It’s that Korean guy and the American guy, they are fighting it out with their new toys.”

“Oh, don’t be ridiculous.”

“I am not being ridiculous Oh, I musn’t forget my smartphone. I need contact with the outside world in the cellar, in case it still exists.”

“And where do you get this idea that we are in iminent danger?”

“The signs are there – look.”

“I can see it, well I never. Those clouds really look like a giant. That is a good photo.”

“It is not a good photo, it shows that we are in danger from above. They are coming to get us, we will disintegrate into a cloud of radioactive dust.”

“Don’t be stupid, it is just a coincidence. The cloud has dissolved and we have the nice fluffy clouds.”

“Of course it is there, I have the proof on my camera. It is now in disguise. Don’t trust the fluffy clouds, the are only temporary.”

Don’t believe them, Even they have a tinge of black on the edge. I tell you they will arrive with a vengence. They are spraying the clouds now with a radio active substance making them turn black. Look on the right. They will soon be engulfing us and crushing us.”

“And you are taking refuge in the cellar. .”

“Of course, it was built for protection against fall out. Where did we put those tablets.”

“For headache or indigestion or are you having your days again?”

“No, I am not having my days again, don’t change the subject. I mean the tablets we got from the government in case of emergency. The iodine tables for protection against nuclear fallout. I will have to take them with me.”

“Forget it, they will not help you. Oh and by the way it is now raining.”

“No, that is the end.”

“The clouds have now disappeared, so no worry.”

“We are being bombarded by radio active rain. I must make a telephone call.”

“To who?”

“The government of course, to warn them, we are under siege from the others. And don’t forget to take your iodine tablets, you never know.”

  1. LOL!! 🙂 😀 Truly elastic imagination. Had me roaring with laughter! I must admit that all I came up with were Super Elastic Bubble Plastic, Play Doh and Silly Putty. All toys my brother and I played with during the 1960s and 70s!!

    • At my age I have given up everything worth giving up. I only take the medicine perscribed by the doc, I am an anti tablet person. Vegan is not normal as far as I am concerned. My dad always said there are so many cows walking around, they must be here for a purpose, but he was always down to earth. I asked Tabby about it and she asked what sort of animal vegan was, so we gave up.
