Tomorrow Is Another One

Welcome to day 22 of 30 Days of Writing, a creative writing challenge borne from the diabolical mind of a mad woman.  Our prompt today is “Like there’s no tomorrow”.  Brought to you by If I Were God, whose original suggestion was “historical figure I’d bang like there’s no tomorrow”. The perv. Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you’ve participated in today’s challenge.

Tomorrow Is Another One

Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
~Dr. Seuss

Here’s a list of things I would do if I lived life like there’s really no tomorrow, one thing for every hour of the day:

  1. Stop putting money into my retirement fund
  2. Start taking money out of my retirement fund
  3. Stop putting money into my kids’ college fund
  4. Start taking money out of my kids’ college fund
  5. Eat chocolate cake for breakfast
  6. Wear a pink sundress
  7. Get another tattoo
  8. Go shopping and spend my retirement fund and my kids’ college fund on things like this:


  9. Get drunk
  10. Eat cheese
  11. Call in sick
  12. Host a 3,000 day-long writing challenge
  13. Take a nap
  14. Dye my hair purple
  15. Go dancing
  16. Start a bar brawl
  17. Ride a motorcycle
  18. Crash a motorcycle
  19. Shoot a gun
  20. Ride a roller-coaster
  21. Bet $1,000 on red
  22. Go skinny-dipping
  23. Kiss a total stranger
  24. Roll down a grassy hill
  25. Sing out loud and in public
  26. Blog about it all

But there is a tomorrow, at least until there isn’t, so I won’t be doing all of that today. Although I’m seriously considering #10.

  • I would NOT ride a roller coaster or take a nap, but the cheese sounds good to me 🙂

  • So it’s ONE thing for every hour of the day, right?  You listed 26.  You need to take out three so you can add “learn how to count” somewhere early -preferably before you pass 24 again.  hahaha

    Oh, BTW -thanks for the idea credit (& the 1000 points it must come with) and ‘perv’ accolade.  But most people familiar with my work already know I am pervASIVE, being everywhere is part of the whole supreme being thing.  I do it 24-7 
    NOT 26-7 ;op

  • That is an impressive list.  Numbers 10, 15 & 24 are very appealing!  I’ll take #5 a little later in the day, with a large diet coke.

  • Nicky, we can do most of that list right here in July.  Numbers 9 through 26, I got you covered.  That’s called “Weekend”.

  • Her Royal Cuteness and I do number 5 all of the time. She just finished her birthday cake this morning. Is there something wrong with that???

  • I am finding this one a little harder to have fun with.  Aging really sucks some of the humor out of ” if you had only one day left what would you do”?   I can’t drink… I might eat lots of desserts,  and I definitely would have be having a chat-fest with  my family. 

  • Mmmm… eating cheese.

    I like the list. Some things I’d consider, too. And, well, some things I wouldn’t consider. 🙂

  • I don’t usually think in “if there was no tomorrow” terms, thanks for this challenge, I wrote through the tears I shed, but for the most part they were happy tears.

  • LOVE your list. Kiss a total stranger….awesome!

  • No roller-coaster? How about the motorcycle? 😉

  • God, I’m a mother of 3 boys. There ARE 26 hours in MY day!

    You are welcome for the idea credit and the 10 points that go along with it. 🙂

  • Oh, but if you’re going to accomplish everything else on the list, you’ll need the sugar rush! 🙂

  • Ha! I think I’m going to need a vacation from my vacation! I can’t wait 🙂

  • There’s nothing wrong with that at all, LM. Not. At. All.

  • Aw, that’s lovely Cheryl.

    Tell you what, you eat all the desserts, I’ll drink all the booze. Perfect. 🙂

  • Tell the truth, P.J. You’d wear the pink sundress, wouldn’t you? 😉

  • I’m relieved they were happy ones, Nathanael. And I’m glad you’re enjoying this challenge. I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts and getting to know you.

  • Well, to be honest Katherine, it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve done that… but don’t tell anyone, okay? 🙂

  • I can’t even ride a bicycle with confidence ha ha! I was pillion on a motorbike once (before the days of crash helmets) and by the time I got off my lovely hairstyle was ruined, but it was very enjoyable 🙂

  • Mikewj

    I find #6 interesting, and I’m pretty sure that with a little planning you could do #s 22and 23 at the same time. Or #s 23 aand 24. Your choice.

  • I love your list. I don’t remember if I’ve ever rolled down a grassy hill. Note to self: Roll down grassy hill.

    I would buy a Cessna, hire a detective, find George Clooney, kidnap him and then fly to Bora Bora.

  • Wendy

    You mean you don’t already eat chocolate cake for breakfast? !
    I Still do all the crazy fun kid things, like rolling down a hill. guess I had those young lads for far too long…..

  • I thought you’d like #6. I’m sure with very little planning, I could do #s 22, 23 and 24 at the same time and avoid having to choose.

  • You really should roll down a grassy hill, Lauren. With George Clooney, if at all possible.

  • Well no, I don’t eat chocolate cake for breakfast. It just seems a little much what with my breakfast being cookies. I still like to do fun things too, I just don’t get the chance to do that many in one day. 🙂

  •  Are heels involved?

  • Always!

  • Mikewj

    Wow. That’d be worth a ticket.

  • Mikewj

    Oh, I was sure that was you in the leathers on the motorcycle in the new T-Mobile ads. My mistake.

  • I’m not sure I can walk in heels.

  • I take it she is a young, sexy female then? 😉

  • okay, this is the best list of things to do – ever. Today, I will try to accomplish at least FIVE of these things, starting with cheese!

  • I highly recommend #s 5, 10, 15, 23 and 24. But then you have to do #26 so we can read all about it! 🙂

  • Okay!
