Day 22 Catch 22
June 22, 1933. Germany became a one political party country when Hitler banned parties other than the Nazis.
The movie Catch 22 is about the insanity of war. It takes place during WWII.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, a catch 22 is “a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions”.
Write about a time you were in a catch 22. Or write a fictional piece about a catch 22.
June 22, 1944. U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt signed the “GI Bill of Rights” to provide broad benefits for veterans of the war.
We’ve heard of the “Voters’ Bill of Rights”, “Patients’ Bill of Rights”, and “The Bill of Rights” made up of the first ten amendments to the Constitution.
Today you get write your own Bill of Rights. What “Rights” do you want to award to yourself or your family?
My Fictional Story about “catch 22”.
An example of “Catch 22” would be: To apply for a job, you need to have a few years of experience. But in order to gain experience, you need to get a job first.
Bill and a couple of his friends had all been having a few drinks at the local pub, later they returned back to Bills home in the country, they had brought a carton of booze to continue drinking while watching a film on TV.
As the film was getting a bit sexy, they started discussing what they would do to try and find a nice girl to spend the rest of their life with.
Jose decided that he wouldn’t be happy with one woman, so he chooses to stay single and enjoy every moment that he had with a lady, as he wasn’t going to be tired down by anyone, as he had plans for his life and it didn’t include marriage.
Bill told him in that case he would miss out on fulfilling his dream, as that wasn’t the way to go about life.
It wasn’t long before the booze had taken over and they fell asleep in front of the TV.
That’s when Jose had an intimidating dream, he could see women floating pass him and his two friends looking on as the woman keep on floating by and he couldn’t even touch one of them they were all out of reach, disappearing into the atmosphere.
All of a sudden Bill woke up from a terrifying noise like someone was dying, looking at his mates he saw Jose with his arms out stretched grabbing at the thin air in the room, gasping for breath.
Jose could still see the picture in his dream of the women floating by, half awake he looked up wondering why Bill was reaching out to him.
That was when he changed his mind about playing around with all the ladies, they just may float away and he couldn’t find someone to keep him happy in his golden years.
So this is were my example at the beginning comes in with the “Catch 22” – To find a nice lady to be your partner for life, it takes years of caring, loving and being faithful to one woman to gain trust, but first he needed to find a lady to shared his life with and he wasn’t going to do that by grabbing every female that he set his eyes on, so it just wasn’t right to take on any women just for the greed of lust if you wanted a life of bliss.
