For Velvet Verbosity’s 100 word challenge. This week’s prompt: faster.
Time is speeding up, or so they say. People try to do more in less time, making life more hectic. Ads scream: ONE TIME OFFER! and the masses throng the store to buy what they never knew they needed. Magazines give advice on how to get younger – yet relieving your youth can’t give you more time.
I see an ad urging me to hurry: I slow my steps. Sitting down on a bench, I bite leisurely into my apple. With all thought of urgency evaporating I obstinately deny the ticking clock.
For after all, rushing only makes time go faster.
