…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.
