“On your marks…”

“Get set…”

“G…”


“STOP!”

“What do you mean STOP?”

“You heard me. Stop! Now!”

“You’re kidding right?”

“No, I’m not!”

“What’s your reason…and it better be good.”

“Oh it is. You need to r-e-a-l-l-y think about what you’re about to do.”

“You don’t think I have?”

“Well, maybe you have, but it wouldn’t hurt to roll it around a little longer…I mean what’s the rush?”

“Oh, I’m in no rush. I’ve got six days to get it all done.”

“Six?”

“Yes, six.”

“Are you sure you can get it done in just six?”

“Pretty sure! In fact I’m so confident I can get it done in six, I’m thinking about taking the seventh day off.”

“So you’ve got it all figured out have you?”

“Yeap, I think so.”

“But, you k-n-o-w what’s going to happen once you start all of this.”

“Yes, I do.”

“But you want to go ahead and do it?”

“Yes. I can hardly wait! I think it’s going to be the best thing I’ve ever done.”

“That’s true, but it’s so r-i-s-k-y.”

“I know! That’s what makes it so exciting! That’s why I can’t wait to get started.”

“You’re absolutely positively sure about this?”

“Yes!”

“And there’s nothing I can do to talk you out of it?”

“Not a thing!”

“Okay, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

“Your reservations have been duly noted.”

“Well, good luck.”

“Thanks…but I can assure you l-u-c-k will have nothing to do with it. Now stand back and let there be light!”

The phrase "Now stand back and let there be light." crowned every thing.
At first I didnt get it, then when it came, My
OFCOURSE, sounded all over the room.I realy liked it.Blessings

Very original!

For a few lines there I thought you were talking about the Weekly Challenge...LOL!

Great job! It could be either! Six days to get the Challenge in: Or, as another perceives - it could be the First Day of Creation; however the verbal context leans toward A Writer speaking, (a CONFIDENT writer)..."Stand back, and Let There Be Light". Super job and very creative!

Now there's imagination for you. Well done!

I love the drive and wit in this - sly humour indeed! :-) God bless.
