If I Could Put Time in a Bottle, the Second Through Tenth Things That I’d Like to Do

March 10, 2011

2. Decant the time to let it breathe properly

3. Make a really long-burning Molotov cocktail

4. Shake up the bottle and spray my teammates with the Age of Enlightenment

5. Warn it about my jealous hourglass

6. Make a label for it with a picture of Time pissing on a Ford logo

7. Pour some of it into other bottles and play “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” with a wooden spoon

8. Stop worrying about being punctual everywhere and just sprinkle out a little as I need it

9. Display it on the coffee table with my bottle of Space and create a continuum filled with magazines and junk mail

10. Save every day till eternity passes away, then return the bottle for my dime
