This is New

Getting my oil changed. Nice kid comes over. Tells me they’ve gone to drive through service. When a bay opens, I’m to drive in but stay in my car. He offers me water 💧 but I’ve brought my own.

A bit disappointing because this means they don’t vacuum anymore. My car only gets vacuumed every oil change which with synthetic means twice for sure or maybe three times a year at most. I’m not carting kids around anymore so there’s not much dirtying the floor boards.

Awww man. I miss carting kids around. If you wanna know their secrets, put em the back seat and drive. They’ll spill their guts. Now Lulu barely speaks to me … about what matters anyway. Pony? Well my twin is an open book.

Truth be told, I’d rather have the free vacuum more than the free water.

I know how to get it to rain today. I’ll go wash 🧽 my car. That’ll get me a “free” vacuum. 😂

As always more to come.

#FlashFiction – 100 Words or Less ~ 7/5/19

He gave us shelter. The home for wayward children. Stability in an otherwise topsy-turvy world. Our parents flaked out and it was uncle who took us in.

Cousins more like siblings. The teasing never stopped. First thing Ray said whenever he saw me was “put the lock of the refrigerator door”.   I wasn’t even eating my full potential back then. That’d come later. To soothe the pain. Kids are cruel or honest to a fault.

We all had our addictions and mine was food. Extreme measures. Then one day I stopped.  Something clicked into place.  Pounds dropped but nothing changed.

What Day Is This?

Friday. The correct answer is Friday. My last day of vacation. Well official last day since I’m fortunate enough to be off weekends. #free48 just a tad bit early.

I’m wide awake. Wired for sound is the expression that comes to mind. I watched one of those telemarking trash videos that suck you in. Waiting for the secret that never comes. I can’t turn off my brain. Ugh! Can’t have this. I need my sleep.

No blue light 30 minutes before bed time helps. Tonight I took a different path. It’s a blue light special. Might explain my wide awakeness. Making up words again.

Anyway did you know that if you watch 30 minutes less of TV each day, that equates to 24 books on average a year? We really DO have time to read. If you say you don’t have time, you’re really choosing not to read. Which is okay. Personal freedom and all that Jazz. Guess I’ll sign off. Try to get some shuteye.

As always more to come.
