When Time Stood Still

When time stood still, there was no end to the week – Saturdays and Sundays simply disappeared. The clock stopped at one and the afternoon passed without anyone noticing … Before you could blink, it was Monday … then Thursday … then Friday. When time stood still, there were only minutes – no hours. The hands on the clock didn’t spin at all and the clock didn’t tick tock. No alarm bells – no chimes. The battery had gone flat in the clock and the days soon became months. By the end of the year – there had been no Easter, nor summer holidays. Just as January came to an end, May faded in (without even noticing February or March). As quick as you could blink, Christmas rolled into New Year. A whole century was written off into history, when time stood still. Even the millenium elapsed. When time stood still, the clock forgot to go round … so everyone remained aged twenty – one.
