Today's Prompt: time flies

Setup: It's ten minutes to 9:00 pm, Des Moines writers, and I'm just now posting the daily writing prompt. Where did the day go?

Prompt: Imagine that you've finally gotten to something you intended to do all day only to discover that, for some reason, the universe is now preventing you from completing your task.  Be as wild and off the wall in your reasoning as possible and write a brief explanation for why the universe has suddenly taken such and unwelcome interest in you.  Share your results in the comments section below.

For more info: This prompt is from my own collection.
