There would be so much to do and so little time. This is probably how I’d play it out from the moment I got out of bed:
- Go over to my annoying neighbour’s house and kick him in the crotch really hard.
- Drive over to KFC and help myself to a Family Bucket Meal complete with Ice cream sundae, and the refills my bladder will permit.
- I’d go to all the trendy shops in town and get a complete wardrobe-makeover; Designer shoes, tops, jeans, watches, cologne, the works.
- I’d drive over to MTN and buy an unlimited broadband bundle on my WIFI modem so I can download all the music and movies my hard drive can muster.
- I’d go to the supermarket to stock up on all the foods I know could last me for the next 3 months e.g. Rice, Potatoes, Beans, Noodles, Frozen foods (fish, meat, chicken, veg, etc)
- I’d get back home to pick up my camera + video camera and take footage of all the motionless people in town.
- I’d send the pictures and videos via email to CNN, Skynews, Al-Jazeera and WordPress.
- I would start working on a very short article for the newspapers entitled, ‘While You Were Sleeping’ and spice it up with some governmental conspiracy plots and mild Alien invasion undertones.
- I would go over to the Cinema and watch all the latest movies whilst stuffing my face with an extra-large box of sticky, buttered popcorn.
- On my way back home I would collect as many recharge card vouchers for my mobile phone from the immobile street hawkers so I can make ‘free calls’ the following day.
- I could check into a 5-star hotel and go drag out whoever is in the finest presidential suite so I can enjoy all the luxuries available. I’d be sure to set my alarm so I can check out before the hotel staff wake up.
Once I’m back at home I would make myself a nice cup of tea and wait for the emails and phone calls to start pouring in from all the media I contacted earlier. Apart from enjoying my inevitable 15 minutes of fame I would particularly enjoy watching my grimacing neighbour from my balcony as he walks like a penguin to his car! 😀
