Too much of a good thing?

In response to the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

If you could clone yourself, how would you split up your responsibilities?

It’s one of those questions again:  “If you could X, blah, blah, blah”.  I think I mentioned before I don’t answer these kinds of questions.  Especially when the “If” part is something that can never happen.  Oh, stop with the “but use your imagination”.  Even if cloning people were to happen in my lifetime, I will never be rich enough to be cloned, because, let’s face it, it will cost big bucks to duplicate yourself.

Ok, I admit that I’m probably being too literal for the intent of the prompt.  The point is probably to see what things I have to do every day that I would prefer to delegate to a mere copy.  Like cleaning litter boxes and ironing.  But one does need to be careful.  Resentful clones all over the world are likely to rise up and take over.  Yes.  This prompt is both annoying and terrifying at the same time.

I do know one thing – my clone would not be the one chosen to eat this delicious beer “can” chicken from last night (sorry to all vegetarian followers…)

  1. Hope that’s an organically-raised chicken, Em ! 😀

  2. Beer can chicken…Mmmmmm! Hey, you can make your clone take out the garbage and clean the toilet and still allow her to go out on the town every so often. It would make for a happier clone without threat of an uprising. 😉
