An extra room has magically been added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it, it disappears. How do you use it?
I don’t think I would.
If I knew where that disappearing room went after the unforeseen mishap occurs, then maybe.
This place doesn’t need another room, but I thought it was clever of some to use it as a way to dispose of unwanted things like clutter, and … people (giggled).
With my luck, I’d do what comes natural and invite my laptop, a desk, and a chair into the room – but, what about me, then? Am I considered the 4th object?
I could 86 the desk then and sit on the floor (if it’s made of downy soft cottony substance that makes me feather-light so my tailbone doesn’t cause temporary paralysis about 20 minutes in). I could lay on my tummy as well, I suppose, but even when I do that in bed, it becomes increasingly difficult to type. I’m propped up on my elbows already, and my lower arms end up making me seem rubber spider-ish, which makes me start to laugh, and then I forget what it was I was typing.
So, back to this magical (strange) room. What happens if, while I’m in there with my laptop, me, and a diet coke when, say, a fly decides to have a look-see? *POOF! Yikes.
Or, I’m in the room with my laptop and a chair when Ma opens the door to ask if I’m hungry (again … like, five times per day) … *Plink!
I’m in my mysterious room with my laptop and Diet Coke, and the cat pushes the door open with his nose, sauntering toward me with that “I’m really not that into you, I just want some attention right now” look on his cute face. *Doink!
This isn’t my idea of a good time.
Well, it would be if I knew where this silly room went after such mishaps! Do I and my precious 2 other belongings go with it, or do we land unceremoniously on the ground to amuse the neighbors?
Does it return the next day for me to try, try again, I wonder?
