Mixed Bag

I moved to the planet Mercury. I wanted to live on a planet with plenty of space. No one else lived there. Plus there are no buildings. There are also no mountains or craters. The planet Mercury is a perfect sphere.

For the first few weeks I was uninhibited. I skipped around freely, singing out made-up songs. I never looked where I was going. I was brimming with energy. I didn’t realize how much energy I had been using up back on Earth to try and avoid running into other people or their things.

I decided to do a walking lap around Mercury. I took two steps and was exhausted and had to sit down. I was puzzled as to what had happened. Then I realized that because there was no change of scenery, I had done the entire lap around the planet but was unaware of the passage of time.
