Thanks to Justin Timberlake’s naked bum on Friends With Benefits, I somehow had a light bulb moment on how I would start my story. (Although it was actually Mila Kunis who offered more beer in the movie, but hey, it’s Mila Kunis vs Justin Timberlake’s naked bum; and I am just a girl with much vulnerability to JT’s bum. Haha, kidding )
Thanks, too, to the genius person on Tumblr who asked the question If a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soulmate, would you want to know? Although I did not see the actual post. I only saw it while surfing through Pinterest one lazy Sunday afternoon. (Awesome stories with the same question as the writing prompt on this link: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/549509592007761212/).

Your mom’s clock restarted? she asked in amazement.
Yeah. Since my dad sort of died, he shrugged.
Sort of died?
Look, let’s not delve into that too much, ok?
Sure. But, really, your mom’s clock restarted? So does that mean she had more than one soulmate? So there is really isn’t just one for each of us?
Oh, shut up. I don’t believe in this stupid soulmate clock anyway. And I still don’t understand why our ancestors thought it was cool to have this clock embedded in our body. It’s just stupid! You can’t really live your life normally. And people stop having bigger dreams...
O. K. But you can’t say the clocks have not done any good. See, lower divorce rates, less heartaches…
Yeah and more people thinking they could just sit back and wait for their soulmates to meet them without having to improve on their own selves. How’s that for laziness, huh.
Whatever. I still believe in the clocks.
Even if yours is defective?
Yep. Even if mine AND yours are defective. Real bummer though, guys do not want to date me because they’re afraid I already found my guy.
Yeah. And most of the time I only get to have one-night stands. Those that last more than one night freak out when they learn my clock’s all in zeros. They think I’m

Against Joy to Live

...Over the years I have developed a distaste for the spectacle of joie de vivre, the knack of knowing how to live. Not that I disapprove of all hearty enjoyment of life. A flushed sense of happiness can overtake a person anywhere, and one is no more to blame for it than the Asiatic flu or a sudden benevolent change in the weather (which is often joy's immediate cause). No, what rankles me is the stylization of this private condition into a bullying social ritual. The French, who have elevated the picnic to their highest civilized rite, are probably most responsible for promoting this smugly upbeat, flaunting style. It took the French genius for formalizing the informal to bring sticky sacramental sanctity to the baguette, wine and cheese. A pure image of sleeveless joie de vivre Sundays can also be found in Renoir's paintings. Weekend satyrs dance and wink; leisure takes on a bohemian stripe. A decent writer, Henry Miller, caught the French malady and ran back to tell us of pissoirs in the Paris streets (why this should have impressed him so, I've never figured out). But if you want a double dose of joie de vivre, you need to consult a later, hence more stylized version of the French myth of pagan happiness: those Family of Man photographs of endlessly kissing lovers, snapped by Doisneau and Boubat, not to mention Cartier-Bresson's icon of the proud tyke carrying bottles of wine. If CartierBresson and his disciples are excellent photographers for all that, it......
