Do you remember many many years ago scientists cloned a sheep? I think I was still in high school then. Somehow, after cloning the sheep, I can’t remember them doing much more on the cloning front. Which is a real shame. I dreamt of a time back then when they’d discover human cloning. I always thought it’d be incredible. Not like the movies or books where our clones get revenge or take over the world but more like amazingly incredible.
Currently though, many, many years later, I’ve realised I really do need a clone. In fact, if scientists want to experiment human cloning, they are more than welcome to my DNA to start with. I’ll take one for the world. Because I desperately need a clone.
Sanch No. 1 can go to original Sanch’s full-time job and do the clinical work of seeing clients.
Sanch No. 2 can do all the administrative tasks including documentation (ugh!), stats (double ugh), attend meetings (yawn).
Sanch No. 3 can do the psychologist writing job 8 hours a week and also the volunteering role of cat foster coordinator.
Sanch No. 4 can do the psychometric testing job which original Sanch has not yet resigned from.
Sanch No. 5 can blog, engage with readers, tweet, and do other social media things related to the blog.
Sanch No. 6 can blissfully engage in creative writing on the other blog as well as in her journals. She can also work consistently on the YA novel/contemporary fiction novel/picture book/children’s book.
Sanch No. 7 can finally focus on freelance writing and pitch, pitch, pitch to magazines.
Sanch No. 8 can hit the gym and go to yoga regularly. The results will be seen in all the Sanches. She will also go hiking and camping.
Sanch No. 9 can read all the 90-odd books on the bookshelf.
Sanch No. 10 can do the boring chores of cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping but also have time to socialise, eat, play with the kitties and chill out.
So there you have it. If I had 10 clones, I’d be able to do all the things! And most importantly, I’d probably also get some decent sleep. So if any scientists are listening, I’m serious about volunteering my DNA to be cloned. I think I have enough evidence to prove why I need it.
How many clones would you require?
