Why Not? Everyone Else Has Already Said No

Welcome to day 21 of 30 Days of Writing, a creative writing challenge that has only one redeeming feature – outlier is not a theme.  Our prompt today is “Favours I’d ask of Satan” (or “Favors I’d ask of Satan” if you don’t speak the Queen’s English). Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you’ve participated in today’s challenge.

Why Not? Everyone Else Has Already Said No

The way I see it, I might as well ask Satan for a few favours. I’m pretty sure we’re going to be good friends eventually. After all, it’s hard not to be close when you spend eternity together.

First up, a portable air conditioner. It was eleventy billion gazillion degrees today. Celsius. For a moment, I thought maybe Satan was demanding payment in advance and I was already in Hell. Then I heard the weatherman say that it was going to cool off to eleventy million gazillion degrees tomorrow. I’d ask for  it to be portable in order to disprove the adage “You can’t take it with you when you go.” Yes. Yes I can.

Do I really need to add some kind of witty comment here? Seriously?

I really, really want my neighbours to stop doing this to their house every year. On November 1st, no less.

And finally, I believe with every fibre of my being, that the world will be a much better place with Mike and I as Supreme Leaders. Or just me. Either way really. I guess, in theory, if I get this favour granted, I wouldn’t need to ask for the other ones I listed.  So, okay. We’ll just ignore the others and go with this one. And I promise to be a good tyrant Supreme Leader. I won’t even use a tin pot.

But I will require a crown.


As your Supreme Leader, I command you! Go! Read the other participants’ entries for today. Tell them I get all the points today because I am Supreme Leader. Also, they really need to start working on my palace.
