What If Monday – A Day With No Consequences

Welcome to What If Monday. Today’s question is: What if you had one day to do whatever you wanted with no consequences? The next day, everything would be back the way it was, no one would remember what you did, no jail time, etc. What would you do?

Things are different when you are young and feel invincible. You are much more likely to just do something, without weighing the consequences. At least, I know that’s how I am. When I was younger, it felt as though I were in a video-game, with an infinite amount of lives. Screw something up? That’s o.k, just hit the reset button. The older I get the more I realize that the Reset button does not exist. We only get one chance at this thing, and something we do today could potentially affect the rest of our lives.

But what if it didn’t? What if we could spend a whole day drinking without having to worry about a hangover, or ask out the attractive guy or girl without the fear of rejection, or something else crazy (see, I’m so old I can’t think of anything exciting).

How would this work? Would you take over someone else’s body for a day, leaving them to deal with the consequences? Or, would it be like Groundhog’s Day, where Bill Murray was able to live an entire day only to have things reset themselves at the end of the day?

Would you want to remember what you have done? Would this change the whole scenario for you?

All right, I’ve hit on a couple questions here in my rambling post. I think the topic is interesting, though, so I will post it any way. What would I do with a day of no consequences? Probably catch up on some z’s 🙂

  1. I would spend the entire 24 hours with my favorite friend, the one who lets me be myself and loves me anyway, over perfect coffee, sharing perfect weather and a perfect view of pure green nature.

    You might think, “That’s not such a big deal…what’s stopping you?” Well, sometime’s life is very, very complicated. The things that would make us the most happy, while simple in nature, may be the most unreachable. But that’s how we learn to cherish them and count them among life’s most precious experiences.

  2. Hmmm….that depends on my mood.

    If I’m feeling particularly goody two shoes, I’d do nothing.

    If I were feeling particularly naughty I’d go stalk a current crush and bend him to my will.

    If I were feeling murderous…well, let’s just say there would be less people.

  3. I’m starting to enjoy these What If Mondays…

    I would love to have a free for all day, and yes I would want to remember everything I did. What I would do honestly there are too many possibilities, and some I can’t say…

    But it definitely sounds like a good day!!

  4. I am not sure that we have the FBI or SS to worry about as I am sure there are people out there who have and will say a lot worse. If there is anything that has come from this administration (and 9/11), it is amazing art. Since 9/11, I have seen some of the most inspired artistic creations. I think people tend to draw inspiration from great depths of tragedy and incompetence to create amazing work.

    Some art is chic again. Case in point: Rage Against the Machine – Battle of Los Angeles. I revisited some of their songs and its as if it was written yesterday. On the flipside of that genre, if you are looking for an amazing album that might inspire, Springsteen’s, The Rising, might be one of the greatest albums ever made. Depending on my mood, I find myself writing with that album as the score often.

    This rant is sponsored by coffee. Juan Valdez is a genius. And I could go on for hours so I will stop now.
