I don’t know how to change font color but this is just an imaginary story for you.
FIN OF THE RINGS
So, there lives this elderly gentleman in my apartment building. He seems harmless, but in my mind, I call him “Grumpy”. I think, under the
surface, he is a fine human being but he has this strange, almost awkward expression on his face. Always. I think he is somewhat “beaten up by
I was just chilling at my laptop, youtube videos and complete wasting of time. And then my doorbell rang. 90% of times I will not open the door. My
mom and my friends inform me if they are coming over, and I don’t need Jesus or a vacuum cleaner. This time, for some unknown reason, I went to my
door and opened it. It was Grumpy. He asked me “Can I come in for a brief moment, I have something important to tell you” I was somehow surprised
by the whole incident, and evaluated the situation in a matter of seconds. A small, fragile old man, if he starts to cause harm, I can escort him back
out without hurting him. So I said “step right inside, glad I just cleaned up my place a bit. You want dark-roast coffee?” He did not. He just
wanted a talk.
So Grumpy sat on my sofa and I sat on the floor on a pillow. Grumpy started to state what was on his mind. “Listen, young man. I have grown old,
weary and fragile. Now, this might be hard to swallow but I have a magical ring and I have decided you to hold it in the future. My time is done”
My thoughts was “ok, dementia onset or alzheimers” Then Grumpy put his hand under his shirt, picked up a necklace and a large golden ring was
attached to it. He removed it, and put it on my hand. I said ok, I am impressed, but we hardly greet each other in the hallway. Why me? What is this
ring? What is the story behind it?
The story behind it goes back for centuries. I will go straight to the bottom line. It will grant you every wish you want. So I thought “what the
heck” and put it on my finger. Then I said “I want a huge barrel of cold beer and a clean pint” Then Grumpy said “Look behind you” and there
it was. Many gallons of quality import beer and a clean pint. Then I said ****. I filled my pint, drank super gulps and tried to collect my thoughts.
Ok man, if this is how this works I am going to a full blastoff. I have wishes, believe me, I have wishes. Still drinking beer, not to get wasted but
just to calm my nerves in a surreal situation. Ok then, next I want immediate world peace and a cheeseburger. And a girlfriend who can tolerate me.
And money, not too much because it would ruin me but 500 euros would be good. All wishes were granted. I checked the news, wars had stopped. I got
overwhelmed. I drank that import beer and Grumpy said, you were the chosen one. My time is about to end. You will find the next holder of the ring
when the time comes, you will know it by instinct and by heart.
I was like ok… So Grumpy, you don’t want anything in return? Have I just sold my soul to the devil? Will this corrupt me? “Calm down. It will
turn out good” said grumpy and took his walking stick and stood up and left. I was absolutely like WTF and thought this beer is needed now. I drank
I drank I drank and I drank. Passed out. Woke up in the morning. **** This was just a dream. A good dream of course but I wished it was true. Beer was
gone. There was no cheeseburger. No girl. News were full of wars and rumors of wars. I thought oh well, dreams are strange sometimes. Better take out
the trash and go buy some cigarettes.
And who I meet in my home yard? Grumpy! No grumpy face, just an accepting and goodwilling smile. And just as I walked by him, I noticed a necklace on
him, with a golden ring attached to it….
