My “What If” Fantasies: The Short List

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Satisfaction of a List.”
“Who doesn’t love a list? So write one!”

Empress1. What if it was not the Emperor, but the Empress, who had no clothes?

2. What if you, and you alone, are the creator of the script of your life, including your birth and death. You are writer, producer, director, lead actor and casting agent for every character (including extras).

3. What if the Golden Rule,”Do to others as you would have them do to you.” was the only legal imperative for the behavior of all residents inhabiting our planet?

4. What if it were men, instead of women, who incubate and give birth to offspring?

5.  What if the legal marriage contract was like every other legally binding contractual agreement, wherein the partners negotiate the terms to suit their specific needs? How long will it be in effect? How often will it be up for renewal, modification, complete renegotiation or dissolution?

* Caveat – item #3 does not apply to masochists.

  1. This list got me thinking. Now I can’t stop thinking of many ‘what ifs’. Thank you for such an interesting list. It’s unique!


  2. That’s quite a thought provoking list Lol, especially #2… maybe we are the creator of our own script and the pain and suffering is for a higher reason…okay, I know it’s farfetched, but… and #3 would be enough of a rule for the peace and future of the human race.
