Krazy A to Z Challenge 2017 – “E”

Everlasting

Often, I can’t tell whether I’m on the edge of greatness or insanity. There’s a fine line between the two. I’m reminded of one of my favorite movies “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, during which the main character gives the children in the movie an “Everlasting Gobstopper”. According to the description, “you can put [one] in your mouth and you can suck it and suck it and suck it and it will never get any smaller”. Is this brilliant or krazy? It speaks to our desire that good things last forever and it also violates the laws of the universe by never changing. Since people inherently fear change, this is the perfect product. But is it feasible? And how can it be tested? Considering people do not last forever, no one will ever know if the everlasting gobstopper really lives up to its name. It doesn’t matter though. The important part is giving people something to believe in, something to feed their dreams and imaginations. In fact, the whole movie is just that – a world of wonder and enchantment and also, impossibilities. But we ignore the impossible parts because after all, who wouldn’t want to believe (even if just for a moment) that the impossible is possible.
