NaBloPoMo’s prompt for today: “If you had to get locked in some place (book store, amusement park, etc) overnight alone, where would you choose to be locked in?”
First of all, the idea of being locked alone overnight creeps me out.
It is an adventure I would not even want to have.
I would like to say I would love to be locked in a book store (which was my first answer to this question actually), but on second thought, no way. Sure, I love books. I live and breathe books. However, I am also a nervous kind of person who worries about little (!) things like “What if overnight turns into every night???” and “There will be an earthquake and the bookstore people will not see me buried under a ton of World Book Encyclopedia.” (I read a lot. I have great imagination) I will be worrying myself sick I won’t even understand a word in the book I intend to read.
I wouldn't want to be locked in an amusement park, either. All those scary movies I have watched involving clowns and magical rides operating on their own with some blood thrown in doesn't sit well with me. (I am still having a big Halloween hang-over, okay?)
Being locked in a mall sounds fun, but only if I have somebody else with me and I am given a shopping privilege to pick up anything I like and keep it. Which reminds me. The mall here in our city used to be a hotel that burned down in the mid 1980s, torching alive a lot of old war veterans. (I told you. I have a big Halloween hang-over!)Nope. On second thought, I wouldn’t want to be locked in a mall. Not even if I have limitless shopping privileges.
The truth is I wouldn’t want to be locked alone overnight anywhere else. I wouldn’t even want to be locked in my own home!
