a law student + sick in bed

Tuesday morning, John, a law student, woke up feeling really bad. His head hurt, his stomach was upset, and no way did he feel like sitting in a classroom listening to one of his professors ramble on about some insignificant point of tax law. He quickly opted to spend the day sick in bed. The end.

Check out this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE4bGwVJBZ8 (apologies for the ad at the beginning), and see if you can figure out why your writer's prompt made me think of it, LOL...

Seems the lament of a young man getting that first feel of youth's impermanency, the desire to drive into the sunrise, yet knowing sunset will come. Even as the lyrics revel in the excitement and opportunities of being young and a desire that it will not end, there is an undercurrent of knowing it won't last - "and we don't know where our bones will rest, to dust I guess..."


The law student who spends the day in bed taking his moment of careless youth to fuck off his responsibilities and sleep all day feels the same way. Why not? There's another day coming. Youth, an easy time to just be in the moment until there are no more moments ..."as you see there's no one around."


                            The End, which was before only imagined comes too soon.
