Drali Two Point Oh

Daily Prompt: Clone Wars – If you could clone yourself, how would you split up your responsibilities?

Faster. Stronger. Better.

Day minus 1: The lab is prepared. The growth solutions are ready. My DNA has been extracted, sequenced and enhanced. Tomorrow we begin the cloning process. Our goal? To produce Draliman 2.0. Faster. Stronger. Better.

Day 1: My DNA has been added to the solution. The solution has been solutificated and the electrodes have been electroned. Let life be created. Ha ha, ha ha ha, ha HA HA HA!

Day 5: My creation is maturing nicely. Although still only partially formed, I look forward to the day when he emerges. He will have the intelligence to complete my daily workload and the stamina to see it through. His enhanced memory will replace my calendar and my sat-nav. He will have the confidence and self-assurance to go where no Draliman has gone before!

Day 9: My excitement grows. My clone has almost reached full maturity! I will soon be able to enjoy the better things in life, while Draliman 2.0 goes about the more mundane tasks.

Day 10: My clone is ready. May my new life begin! I release him from the solution and wrap him in a towel. Wait – he is about to speak! His first words…

“Wha… wha… what’s on the telly? X-Factor! Awesome!”

Disappointment fills my bones. Another failure. But I shall not be downhearted. I shall place him with the others and start again!

    HA-HA-HA!!! Love your take on this one!

      Thanks! As you can see, my attempts at getting a clone to run my daily life have so far proved unsuccessful 😦

    10/10 Draliman, no failure with this post. I can almost imagine that as a short video with you doing the talkover,

      Thanks Serena!
      Hey, that’s an idea and these days every smartphone’s a camcorder…

    Major giggling going on here. You should write more stories like that.

      Thanks, I’ll see what I can do 🙂

    Very original, Draliman 🙂

    Reblogged this on draliman on life and commented:

    Today’s Daily Prompt is all about cloning. Hey, I thought, they’ve cloned their prompt! So, since I haven’t written My Mondays Finish the Story yet, here’s my 2013 reply to the same prompt.

    It’s like time travel or something.

    Heck, that’s really a shame Ali. But don’t worry. We like you just as you are. I’m sure your family does too. 🙂


    • February 16, 2015 at 9:14 pm

      Yeah, all of the “me’s” 🙂


  8. February 16, 2015 at 7:38 pm

    That’s the problem with clones. They are us. 2.0 isn’t always an improvement, I guess.


    • February 16, 2015 at 9:15 pm

      I think clones always go downhill. Mine did.


  9. February 16, 2015 at 8:37 pm

    MOL 😀 I think I’m gonna clone myself and watch some X-factor with you 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤

    I think the solution needs tweaking. Or maybe there’s too many electrodes…or not enough. Thoroughly enjoyed this tale D-man 😀


    • February 17, 2015 at 7:34 am

      More electrodes, I think. You can never have enough electrodes.
      Glad you liked my vintage Draliman 🙂

    Oh how disappointing! Will it have to be fed? Am i taking this too seriously? 😀


    • February 17, 2015 at 7:39 am

      The clones do need feeding unfortunately 😦 And all they do all day is watch reality TV. It is very disappointing 🙂

    LOL! This made me giggle, thank you. 🙂


    • February 17, 2015 at 12:37 pm

      I thought it was worth reblogging as I didn’t have many followers when it was first published 🙂

    …Mine would come out demanding coffee or else.


  14. February 21, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    Haha, better luck next time. An X-Factor fan, you don’t want to be! 😉 This was fun!


    • February 22, 2015 at 8:23 am

      Definitely not. I won’t be having any X-Factor-watching clones lazing around my place 🙂

    Great job! My clone would be addicted to Netflix… But maybe there is a way I could get “a fix” from an alternate clones Netflix supplements?


    • March 8, 2015 at 5:44 am

      I’m sure there must be a way to create some sort of link up.
