Annukai The Genie

Annukai The Genie

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Advantage of Foresight

“Okay! Alright, Genie,” I said rubbing my hands on the lamp. “Appear!”  With grace, a cloud of smoke oozed out from the head of the lamp. The white, formless, cloud morphed into an Egyptian figure, so real and so intricate in design. The genie named Annukai appeared before me with his arms crossed, stern in his stature. I reached touch the reality before me, but my hands slipped through him. Sharply, I withdrew my hands looking both ways. Am I transparent? “No, You are real. I am the won who is not dense. I cannot fully become in your likeness without sacrificing my consciousness. I worked too damn hard, too many lifetimes to reach this point. I refuse,” said Annukai the Genie reading my thoughts.

I smiled. “Great, well, lets sit down and have some tea. I have plenty of request.” I pulled out the chairs at my backyard for me and for him, however, when he sat down he still appeared to be floating. He explained how it was pointless to sit and have tea unless I care to the join the festivities alone. Which I didn’t mind, of course, it was more tea for me. “The tea will just make a mess. I can’t consume earthly things. And by the way you guys cook, I refuse. It’s unhealthy,” He babbled.

“You must think you are better than thou, huh? You know you was once human before. Cut you shit!” I yelled.
“Yeah, but back in my eons food was food. Now food is rude. Rude to body. Rude to the planet. Rude to the soul. Rude to the–”
“I GET IT! Can I get to my request please. You chat too much, bro!”
“As you wish.”
“Wait, I hope that didn’t count as for one of my wishes right, cause…”
“Wishes are unlimited, but no”

I explained to him how I troubled the future of today. It has been so much going on in the world from homophobia, the Confederate flag, Caitlyn Jenner, College. You know name it, it’s an issue. I wanted a sense of security in my life. I hope the future to be a lot more open. Free. Pleasant. This genie would be able to help me with my answer, I suppose. Annukai explain how although my wishes were unlimited each wish came with it a token of sacrifice. My specific request to see the future whenever I wanted cost me one day of my life span. “Everything in the universe is about balance,” he said.  Which I can totally agree with.

I agreed with the terms and conditions of wish making. I signed the bill with my blood, two tree leaves, and my gold ring. Perplexed I asked, “What you need my gold ring for?”

“I like Gold.”
“Excuse me…this ring is my favorite ring. That’s not fair. It’s not part of your ‘ritual’ I bet.”
” Its not you are right. But I like gold, so hand it over”, he demanded. I refused. “We are not continuing. I need one earth element for this process to be done.”

“Then use the dirt on the ground, you need me to bring some tap water, use my tea, use something else my ring is not even an element. It’s a ring, for Christ sake,” I said.
“Gold. Symbol AU. Atomic number 79. Melting point  1,948°F (1,064°C). Boiling Point  5,378°F (2,970°C). Atomic Mass 196.96657 ± 0.000004 u. Electron Configuration  [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s1.” Annukai taunted. ” I like gold.”

“Oh Bitch, I give up.” I rolled my eyes handing him over my ring. It’s probably not even real gold anyways, just gold covered nickel or some shit.”
Nickle. Symbol Ni –”
“NOT AGAIN. JUST FINISH PLEASE,” I shouted. He laughed putting all the ingredients into some mysterious black box he formed in thin air. I was amazed by his magic, but then again, he is a genie after all. Once he closed the black box he stood still with a smile on his face. I looked at him awkwardly unbeknownst  to what is going on. I put my head down on the table feeling my stomach growl. This needs to hurry up.  I peeked above from my arms to check in on whats going on. “Annukai, is it done?” He stood immobile again.  I went to reach for the lamp underneath the table. I knocked on the lamp as if it was a door to my friends house. I repeatedly called his name when he snapped back into reality which caused me to jump backwards in fear.

“You humans lack patience,” he said.
“What the fuck bro! Don’t scare me like that!”

The deed was done, though I don’t know why he went away. I don’t even care at this point. I just want my powers. “Okay, sir so what will your first foresight out the day be?” He asked.
” I want to see what my mom will be making for dinner?”
“You do know, that will cost you one–”
“I am hungry!”

Kindness Granted.

Kindness Granted.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Kindness of Strangers.”

I held the heavy metal door for the middle age man to walk through, because I know my manners. “Thank You,” he said.  The man continued to the following set of doors holding them open for me to pass, I guess to return the favor.  I walked through. “You’re welcome!” He said sternly.  I looked behind my shoulders and shrugged. I assume he wanted me to be kind. Who said I was a kind stranger anyways?

The 60’s to the Millennials

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Generation XYZ.”

It’s really hard to define a generation of people. Some say a generation can be 10+ years, I’ve seen people use it for five year gaps and even 20+ years. So in trying to understand them, I’m going to question my mothers generation 1960’s and the kids born in 2000’s.

1960s peeps

Honestly, Okay, how can I be frank on this? You guys are currently running our country. You guys are technically the adults of the world and I have to say, you guys are doing no different but passing on bad teachings to your children. Some of you guys are still passing down racism, still promoting poor earth living standards, still money hungry, and still violent. I guess I have to blame the Great-adults before you guys. Or maybe its just one part of the human nature. You guys aren’t totally bad. Collectively, y’all revamp technology and still are in unimaginable ways. I am happy part of this generation upgrade the way of living.  I am completely grateful of my smartphone, cars, and fashion.  I am glad you guys broke some of the old tradition of the 1940’s becoming almost a rebel generation revolutionizing human rights. Women and African Americans came a long way because of you guys and I am thankful. I still think, however, a lot of you guys are way to tradition for my taste and much more on the ignorant side.I guess I can take away from you guys, domestication, fun, being outside often, and good music…oh, yeah by the time you all fertilized in the 80-90’s you guys were blissful.   Your predictions about the future were wrong, completely.

2000’s The millennials

200 (1)

You all are as bad as the music that came with you guys. First of all, Nicki Minaj is not heaven. You guys don’t know anything about good music that can actually make you feel good. Don’t confuse feeling good with music what makes you fist pump. There’s a difference. You guys had cells phones at birth and think y’all all that and a bag of chips. In fact, that’s why y’all belligerent beings have expensive chips. Back in my day, chips were 25 cents. Now you pay a quarter more then me, ha-ha bitches! I don’t trust y’all at all. All it seems you people do is parade over not have many friends and not trusting a soul. Y’all sound bitter, alone and broken. Y’all don’t even fight fair, you guys carry war guns just in case someone bumps your shoulder I am okay! I am so okay!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “To Sleep, Perchance to Dream.”

 

           I’ve more than likely been heavily influenced by Michio Kaku’s “Physics Of The Future,” when I feel into that deep sleep. Like most dreams, it doesn’t make any sense when trying to recall, but it’s sure as hell understood in the process. When I woke up, I remembered so vividly what happened…

Everything seemed just about okay at first and you know that’s not a usual thing when dreaming. I was looking for my friend–I believe–so when can go home when she decided to dive into the lake. Stricken with fear, I jumped into the lake in search for her. What seemed to be a lake turned into an extremely deep city ruins. It appeared as if the entire city was flooded leaving the skyscrapers as the new land. All I can glimpse was the difficult of trying to breathe underwater–I mean clearly it was very difficult to breathe underwater, however, I gained no luck in search for my friend.

When I reached above water, I was in an entirely new setting. Two ladies with a moss filled boat that looked as if it was revived from the depth kindly offered assistance. We searched and search and still no luck sailing the boat passed these two corridors that then warped us into another realm.

This is where it gets tricky…

Before us a commercial appeared with headlines talking a part two of something. It felt like a video game. I was so confused. I turned around to see a random girl wet hiding behind a wall. Me and the two search buddies got really scared and one of them had the audacity to blame me. What the hell, I know it’s my dream, but girl it’s not my fault. We came to the conclusion we actually stuck in a video game.

With the realization, another friend appeared to help us leave this virtual reality.  He had a iphone-android, in other words, he held a phone with both features mashed into one. We were given hope that pressing two buttons will warp us into real life, but that wasn’t the case.

This fucking fake ass wanna be captain save no one decided to turn against us. He played a trick on us given us false hope turning into a boss character. Immediately, I snatched that phone so fast he morphed into a resident evil zombie. I was infuriated, yet, confused on how to work the phone. The other two ladies tried to tame the beast as I pressed the two buttons and of course, it didn’t work.

Now it gets super confusing…

In conclusion, my brother comes into the game with another iphone-andriod. He told me to make a call as a friend was going guide us out the game. Quickly disrupted, I saw Thors hammer and smashed the jackass hopefully to by us some more time. I pressed the two buttons again and it 75% worked. I was able to see physical reality but didn’t have enough power to transport permanently.

Then I woke up.

 

7 Ways To Become A Great Teacher

Whether you are in grade school or college at some point in time you came across bad teachers in you life. For instance, when you 7th grade teacher the assign packets and packets of homework on winter vacation. Like, what the hell! Why assign homework on  vacation? That’s not a vacation that is education institution slavery. These teachers must like reading the same 100 papers. Fuckers!

Luckily, not all teacher forces you to write one word 100 times for homework/punishment. And not all teachers are in school, in fact, the best teachers are the ones that forced you to become wise in some way or another. Boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, family, homeless people, the list goes on. It is all in part of the biggest teacher of them all…LIFE!

But for educational purposes, I’ll just speak on grade school teachers.

7 Ways On How To Become A Great Teacher

  1. Be Absent Often.
    This is probably one the best ways to win your students heart and to forever be known as one the best teachers ever in their lives. BE ABSENT no one wants to deal with you, especially if you are going to be a monotone  homework giving monster. Save your self for bed everyday, or at least once a week between Monday-FridayBad Teacher
  2. Let Your Students Speak To Each Other.
    How bad do you want to win the hearts of your students? How important is it for you be talked about for generations through oral tradition? Let your students talk to each other! let your students socialize and build interpersonal skills needed for the workforce. Don’t Interrupt  when they’re talking. And do not expect  students stop you when you are sitting at your desk pouting              giphy1 
  3. Don’t You Dare Ask Anyone To Do Any Math Equation On The Board.
    You will be marked down as the teacher from hell if you dare to ever stop a student if you disregard #3 interrupt a conversation to say, ” Malcolm, care to solve this equation on the board?” If you do, we have the right to say no!  If your force students and try to embarrass them out of spite you will tarnish your reputation on lunch break. Trust me you don’t want to the talk of the town during congregation hour.
    giphy2
  4. Frequent Treats.
    This is probably the most important way to become the best teacher. Make our time meaningful and fruitful if you going to speaking about mundane info. You have to appeal to your  students, so why not appeal to their sense? Come to class with free donuts, give out free candy, come with free pizza. Make my nose go up and eyes wide from the smell of treats. It’s a great way to keep your students in check and attentive. Why? well it’s almost like a deal, if you give to us we will give to you. You want good grades, well we want FOOD!
    giphy32
  5. Talk To Us About Current Things In Pop Culture.
    Be current. Be new. Be hip. If you smoke a little weed, pop a molly Fridays, have sex, part of Bey-Hive share that with your students! We want to connect with you some how some way. Humans are yearning for some connection with each other some how some way. As a student, we want to know can you sit with us at the lunch table. If you can’t relate to or youthful nature then you mind as well educate senior citizen on World War 2. Incorporate today things in your teachings if you want to be a great teacher!
    giphy5
  6. NO Homework.
    This is very simple easy to follow. Easy said and done! Students got lives outside of your class. Do not be egotistical, selfish teacher and assign homework on any given reason. If you follow #1 do not give out homework to compensate. You will be dismissed! So be nice, be sweet, respect our time with no homework! Save your students from depression.
    giphy2
  7. Keep Parents Out Of Students Business.
    It’s none of the parents business about anything. You heard of the saying snitches gets stitches? If you care about your job have some dignity and self-respect. Don’t go running to Billy Bobs mom because he put you in your place or corrected your outdated teaching skills. We know how information best will resonate with us, so believe a student when he/she says, “Your shit is whack!” Who cares is Mary-Jane skipped school to play video games. What happen in the school stays in school. Telling parents is consider home wrecking and you don’t to fuck someone home shit up because you want can’t mind your business.

Prompt – We Can Be Taught

You My Friend, Gotta Go…LIKE NOW!

It was the moment when I walked into the bathroom I declared he has to go! Brown coiled hair splattered across my beige and white walls, several cardboard rolls from the toilet paper scattered around the sink. “Is this that a thong?” I said while picking up this thin pink clothing with a piece of tissue. “Oh my God, its bloody!” I screamed immediately dropping everything out my hands. I wiped whatever germs I could have contacted on my shirt. I studied the bathroom a little longer with an obnoxious look stapled upon my face.  The sink and tub looked as if it was a Mardi Gras of homeless men ecstatic to touch hot water.  I took a deep breath.

I dropped my suitcase and my bags of gifts from Miami on my bed. I really wanted to jump on my bed and marvel on its grandiose softness. It Tempurpedic.  But I couldn’t, instead, I have to find and scold Mike. I heavily walked around my house taking note of all the things I am going to say to him when I find him. I bypass the kitchen, the living, I am not even going to look in the bathroom again, then I faced his door. I knocked fiercely, “Mike Yo! open the door!” I belted.  I turned the knob and it with surprise it was open, but I couldn’t barge in dramatically as I attended. The door only stopped midway giving me a small glimpse of his room.  Clothes were everywhere! I looked down to see what was possibly in the door tracks. I couldn’t make out what was the problem. I looked up at the hinges and took yet another deep breath. “Of course, an underwear taking a nap on top of the door, because you know why? that’s what they do, they say ‘fuck this shit and fuck drawers’ and take naps on top of doors” I said sarcastically. I removed the underwear hoping to finally be freed into the room but yet something else was blocking the door. I threw my hands up as if i was throwing a white flag. I’d given up. I decided to call his phone.
“Hey!” Mike went.
“Mike, buddy old pal, I am back from Miami” I said gleefully.
” I am good and you” mike replied. I became perplexed because I didn’t ask him about his well-being.
“What-”
“Sike! This is my answer machine Mike is not here right now so please leave a message after the tone suckers.”

I sat at the kitchen table waiting for his arrival. It was about 2:30 am when I heard the key jingle against the door. The rest of the house remained dark so it was easy for him to spot me. “Yo! who the fuck turned the lights-” Mike said stopping in mid sentence after he spot me in the kitchen. I walked towards him with open arms happy as ever to see my best friend from college. We greeted each other warmly making way to the kitchen table. He smelled like dark liquor and cigars. I hate cigars.  I told him briefly how I had an amazing time in Miami and he complimented the tan on my skin. I asked him if he had an exciting stores to tell and he shrugged and nodded.

“Look,” I said with my hands politely crossed against the marble table. “You got to pack up your shit and go!”
“What do you mean, why do I have to go?” he asked innocently.
“What the fuck do you mean-” I paused. I took a deep breath to remain my composure.  I was about to seconds from blacking out on him. “Mike, I am kicking you out. That means you plus the dirty thong, plus your slobish nature, equals bye-bye,” I said gesturing goodbye so he can visually understand me.
“Actually, if this about the underwear I can explain, I had a girl-”
“I don’t care if it was your dead grannies from 1764, you are going to marry that front door and honeymoon your way out of this apartment,” I interrupted.
“Well, can we agree to disagree and work out a probably solution. I have no where else to go so soon. It’s quite unfair” Mike said.
“excuse me?” I asked turning my ear towards him.
“Agree to disagree” Mike repeated condescendingly as if I were the stupid slob!
“This ain’t no mutherfucking survery! aint no agree to disagree about anything! This is my fucking house and you getting out. Now!” I slammed the table. “Court adjourned.” I got up out my seat to make way to his room. Mike continued to sit. ” I have squatters rights!” Mike yelled. I stopped abruptly  on the steps.  Turned around to see Mike still looking at the empty chair I was once in. He turned towards me with a sly smirk. “Squatters rights” he repeated.
I stared deep into his cynical eyes. This asshole wants to go to war. Then so be it.
