Half of Forever

While waiting for the water to warm up so I could take my shower, I thought, “It’s amazing how some days this takes forever while other days it takes…what, half of forever?”

What would be half of forever? An eon? Is an age a forth of forever? What about an era? Is that an eighth? And is a season a sixteenth? (By season I mean a stretch of time, not fall or winter.)

Wouldn’t that be weird if we were more literal, or specific, with these time measurements. Instead of saying, “I waited at the DMV for forever,” you’d say, “I waited at the DMV for one-eightieth of forever.”

Or is forever three-fourths of an eternity? How’d you like to be someone who wished to live forever and died 3/4 of the way?

I told you it takes a long time for the water to warm up.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.
