It’s Just One of Those Days…

…You know. A Monday. The kind of day that when your alarm clock goes off, you have that inner argument over whether to get up or pull the covers back over your head instead. The kind of day when one cup of coffee…nay, TWO cups of coffee…just doesn’t do it, and you consider jet fuel instead (except I don’t think a dash of cream would make it quite as palatable.) The kind of day when you know, without a shadow of a doubt, you’d rather be anywhere but HERE.

Yeah. I’m having one of those days. I would be so much happier at the beach…

…or some fancy spa…
But then again, spending the day at either of those locations would make me cheery on any other day of the week. But today…well, today I’m feeling like I’d even be thrilled to have jury duty
…or perhaps a driver’s license that needed replacing at the DMV.
Believe me when I say that I know people who would rather suffer through Chinese water torture before they would willingly stand in line at the DMV. But readers, I’d be there today, if I could.
In FACT, I could go so far as to say I’d rather be at the dentist’s office. Yep. Not just for a routine cleaning, but for a friggin’ root canal. You’ve got laughing gas? Sign me up, Doc. I’m there.
Today, readers…today, I would even welcome a quick tour of Mordor. With the orcs and the trolls and the creepy little hobbits with their hairy toes. I’ll even take the scary volcano thingy. Yep. I’d be right chipper at good ol’ Mordor today. I might even ask for autographs, so long as it meant I was somewhere else.
But alas, readers…all the daydreaming in the world won’t change my fate today. Because it’s Monday. And I’m not in any of the exotic (and slightly terrifying) locations listed above. Nope. I’m at work instead.
Yay. Work.

      I don’t have that option. But I do have a comfy couch and a working coffee maker if you want to share your afternoon with me! :0)

    I can’t relate to this at all. Because there’s NOTHING worse than a root canal. I would work for free – all week – instead of getting a root canal. Even the smell of the dentist’s office gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    Hope your day’s not as bad as you feared!

    Err… then I probably shouldn’t mention that this Monday and Tuesday was a public holiday in my country (2 separate occasions) so it was a 4-day weekend for most of us here… :p


    Abby! It’s great to find you at YeahWrite. These pictures have given me such a great big belly laugh this morning (one I needed since I just cleaned poop of my white carpet).

    The more I scrolled down, the harder I laughed and when I saw the last photo I just lost it.

    Bwaahaahaa!! Oh my goodness, that is hilarious! Love the pics…the last one cracked me up. Hoping your Tuesday is better 🙂

      Well, I’m still at work. But I’m less excited about Mordor today than I was yesterday. Maybe by Friday I’ll be smiling at work, too. 🙂

      Thanks! I don’t know how to do much with photoshop, but I can magic myself into all sorts of situations. It’s my blog fodder. LOL

    Very clever.
    That picture of you in all those different settings – priceless.
    The final pic of you at work – even moreso. (-:

      That’s my real face. As in, I felt it on my face when I got out of the shower that morning and thought to myself, “Huh. I should blog about this.” 🙂

      Huh. I guess I need to do better research about root canals. I thought the laughing gas made it all better. I will say, though…I still hate my job. A lot. LOL
