TBWCYL Day 234 - Butterfly Effect

I got to put the Butterfly Effect to the test this morning as my task. I have had to wait until I saw one of the winged wonders before I could do this and at 9:30 a.m. I lucked out. We left the drive-thru of a local chain and as my father asked me if I was queer, to which I thought he said "are you clear" and told him, I hadn't checked because I was trying to be helpful while driving...sorry. I digressed there. Anyway, looking up, there was a tiny butterfly on the window of the glass.

We were about to turn out of the parking lot so I reached out and swiped the butterfly off the window, thus changing the course of history...possibly. The butterfly wouldn't have stayed on the window long but I moved it forward in its timeline. So, I guess I should monitor the news in the next few days and see if a typhoon kicks up in Taiwan or something.

I hope I didn't just kill anyone.

That is all,


5 Ripples in the pond:

I’m glad you’re able to accept the responsibility for your actions. Not many others would.

I'll watch for the tsunami that's sure to hit the east coast of Australia thanks to your hasty butterfly shooing. Good one, Newt.

Erin said...

You know, I hope you sent the butterfly away without touching its wings...because if you touched its's as good as dead and then you DID kill someone. But I know you would be more conscientious than that.

I didn't touch it because of the learnin' we got from our Butterfly expedition. It flew safetly away.

I dropped my ice cream on the floor that day ... I wanted to cry, I couldn't understand why something like that would happen to me

Now I know.

You owe me an ice cream, mister.
