7:00 AM - I jump out of bed, excitement in my body and a song in my heart, usually Iron Maiden.
7:15 AM - I down my first round of medication that my parole officer says I must take if I'm to stay out of prison for 'Crimes against Humanity involving a Tuba'. Some laws are just silly!!
7:30 AM - Take a shower. Sing opera under the hot water. I sing opera good.
7:45 AM - Ponder writing a blog post on my many sites. Decide my readers have enough poop of mine to keep them company. ZoomerStaff sends me an email thanking me on that decision. "We like you Jason, but man, you're really pulling in some weird Google search!" I nod.
7:50 AM - Respond to ZoomerStaff. "Sorry!"
8:00 AM - Call my bookie to put $25.00 on Fargo Dancing Elephants for the weekend game!! GO FARGO!!!
8:05 AM - Call my agent to see if there's any jobs available. "Nope!" Stupid agent.
Here is a round-up of the other creative entries:
“I read the news today, Oh Boy” we are in trouble.
I tend to wake up early, somewhere around 4 AM, but usually don’t feel well enough to get out of bed. Sometimes I get the morning newspaper and read it for a while. Yes – we are the last human beings who still subscribe to a newspaper. I start by reading the comics, as that is often the most meaningful and informative section of the paper. I might read the advice column (Dear Abbey on some days, Carolyn Hax on others). I do my best to fall back asleep before the fun stuff in the paper runs on into actual news. The news is far less entertaining.
Soon it’s time for The Wife to get up. I make coffee and assemble her office lunch. I have to put modesty aside and say this is one area where I excel.
The Wife’s lunches are the best in her office, perhaps excepting a few Asian women who make pho (modified to reflect each person’s individual tastes). They maintain stocks of broth and solid pho stuff in the office refrigerator.
Once upon a time when songs of The Cure and Skid Row filled the air, two small boys loved to go to Storyland, which was situated right dab in the middle of the "Frew." The small park featured a tiny mini-golf course, a small water park, live performers, playgrounds, small rides, and staff dressed as fairy tale characters. Oh how the children loved Storyland!
Durk and Bonnie Heyda, who thought life itself was a wonderful fairy tale were unable to have children. Instead, they chose to build story scenes in 1966 to amuse hikers on their way to the Champlain Lookout located at the rear of their property.
In 1973 Durk Heyda suffered a heart attack and control was handed to family friend John Berkhout. Berkhout continued the parks growth throughout the 1980s, adding mini golf, paddle boats and many additional story scenes, some including moving mechanical scenes. Sadly throughout the years the park lost its magic as children today are more interested in theme parks than they are in fairy tales.
I absolutely enjoy my life.... I begin with that statement because it is so true. Chronologically as they say.
I begin with a long luxurious stretch in bed. This loosens any tightness of my muscles.
Upon hopping out of bed, I proceed through my private entry and have a long awaited pee.
After a few minutes I re enter and sniff out some brekkie. Yum Yum I say as I spot my bowl full of kibble. No milk no sugar just the way I enjoy it.
My partner has roused from our bed and he goes about his ablutions.
He pours a coffee, leans over and scratches my ear.
In about 15 mins he is ready for the day and we head out the door.
We walk to the beach. Where he tosses my ball while I run and fetch it. Dipping into the waters of this coast of BC,
When we finish on the beach we walk home by way of Beacon Hill park. This is where I chase those pesky squirrels.
Home and time now for a nap on my favourite cushion.
Time to rest and dream of catching one of those squirrels
A little later I rise and decide to check out the house making sure that everything is in order.......... is and I nudge my partner for a tummy rub.
Ohhhh that feels so good.. as he strokes my belly.
***Thanks to everyone who participated and stay tuned for next week's theme!
