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 🙂
