Friday Plots Swap~End of the World Style

Friday Plot Swap
Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a  plot? Leave one
Need a plot ? Take one 
Have you seen a news story that got your wheels turning? 
Do you have a plot in your head that would make a great story, just not one you intend to write?  
Leave it here on Fridays 
pick up a plot for your weekend writing time.
Maybe you have heard that some are predicting the end of the world tomorrow. In that case, you won't need any of these. 
While I am pretty sure we are all still going to be hanging out on May 22nd, this article about the May 21st believers caught my attention :

 What if the world is still around on May 22nd? I think how these people will go on and if they will manage to rebuild their lives could be a fascinating story.

caught my eye also.
I particularly liked #23
Last, I know it has been done. 
This is a slightly different take on a 

It would be interesting to incorporate into a sweet romance about someone trying to accomplish these before the end of the world.
(Skip the dying at the end part~I am a happily ever after person. Except for the people I kill off in my murder mysteries, but you know how that goes. )

So, swap with me! There is a good possibility, at least in my world, that we are all still going to be here tomorrow. If that is the case, then I will have some writing to do! 

Any ideas floating around you want to share with us?

My next-door neighbor had a great idea...let's all run out and lay out empty clothes on the ground, so all the End of the Worlders will think the Rapture happened and they got Left Behind!

I offered to toss in some dry ice to enhance the effect.

I think this would be a good day to play that REM song over. and over. and over. Never mind, it's already playing in my mind!

I keep thinking of that episode of the Twilight Zone where the guy is wandering around after armageddon or whatever, and he breaks his glasses.

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine!

Teri~I dated this one guy in high school. He took me to a party for his youth group at his house. In the middle of the party his dad left to get pizza and everyone started laying random clothes on the ground. My date got real embarrassed and explained it was "The Rapture Game". When his dad came back we all hid in the backyard!
