Lioness' Literatim

Letter for letter, the thoughts in my head.

Awesome Stuff #3

The tail end of an eternity-long countdown. It started off slow, each day ticking off as slow as frozen molasses. Then you hit a certain point on the far side of the halfway mark and suddenly the days are speeding by and you’re almost at the end. Depending on the situation and atmosphere, the last few days may drag on or disappear in the blink of an eye.

Then there are the stacked countdowns. You know the ones. There are __ days until this, and then __ days until this. The second one seems so far away until the first one is over and the second one can step up, but when it does, the excitement is almost too much to control.

“The greatest thing about a countdown? No matter how long or stressful each day is, the number still gets smaller once it’s done.” – Pikachu
