Wily Wednesday Story Time ~ 1/11/23

Pretty sure I spelled wily wrong, but I’m moving on because this is stream. I remembered my dream when I woke up this morning because the alarm startled me awake during it. Right at the good part. Mind outta the gutter folks. 😉

I was rounding the corner and I saw my coworker, sitting there in shorts & a t-shirt, wearing flip-flops & smoking a cigarette. He saw me and tried to hide the evidence. He even had the door open and was sort of trying to blow the smoke outdoors. And I’m like “dude you’re in the building you can’t smoke here.” And then I woke up and I wanted a cigarette even though I was never a smoker. Of course I lived with a smoker so I was smoker adjacent for so long that once I moved out of my parents’ house, I kind of still had a taste for the smell of cigarettes. Does that even make sense? Taste for the smell. Good Lord, what is wrong with me? AnyWho, that’s not my story.

My story is about how every morning I wake up with my mind already going like I seriously have song lyrics or there’s something I’m thinking about. I wake up and I’m on. This drives me crazy. Not like I should wake up in a stupor, but Jesus Christ. I never stop thinking, and Lord that drives me crazy . I better watch my mouth. My momma is turning over in her grave. She’d probably say something like Mother Mary is crying because of those words you’re choosing to use. Jesus Christ is NOT a swear word. Yep, good ole Catholic guilt. Still not my story.

Since I didn’t write today’s story down immediately, I forgot it. Pretty sure it was a good one too. Don’t worry, I’ll come up with something even better tomorrow. It should be a sin to have this much fun. Haha 😆

As always more to come.

#JusJoJan & #1linerWeds. ~ 1/11/23

Linda’s post with the red squirrel gave me the giggles. Emotions are bubbling at the surface. So what’s new Jilly? Uh, nothing. Absolutely nothing is new. I laughed because of the commercial for Almond Joy & Mounds that gave me my one line …

“sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t”

Well I do! I always feel like a nut. I’m not a squirrel like my author friend, one Linda G Hill but I sure am nutty. And that’s okay for me to say about ME! Whoopee.

BTW, squirrels are evil, they scare me. Pretty sure I told you all about my Perry story. Our pet squirrel growing up who got loose, bit our neighbor lady as she was drinking coffee out on her back patio, then he went away for a very long, long time never to return. No rabies but there was only one way to test for that so no Perry either. I would feed him sunflower seeds through his cage very cautiously. That was my only interaction because like I said, squirrels are evil. This red squirrel though is actually kind of cute. Anyway, …

I could go on, and on, and on but I’ll be writing a twofer today. For now, we are FIN!

This post was written for One-Liner Wednesday & #JusJoJan the 11th, 2023 – A squirrel! HERE are the rules & ping back. Come on in & take a look around. You’ll be glad you did.

As always, more to come.
