No Second Thoughts

8 Nov

I start work tomorrow. No second thoughts allowed.  No pun intended.

Life will return to normal aka mundane.  No staying up till late for no other reasons than staring at the ceiling.  No getting up early in the afternoons.  No longer will there be breakfast at 1 pm.  No longer will I be looking EAGERLY forward to lazing around.

is anyone starting work tomorrow??

Hmm.  I do not know what the “President Elect” will do when she starts work tomorrow!

I can only speak for myself.  This one will have NO time in her hands, because she will be in the hands of TIME, at TIME’s mercy.    

  • The alarm clock will wake the reluctant me up every morning.  No second thoughts, no defying.  Downing cold cold cereals in the cold cold morning is something I wouldn’t want to start my day with.
  • Get dressed.  Tick-tock.  Skip the make-up.  Tick-tock.  Walk to the bus stop.  Tick-tock.  Scratch that.  Run.  Tick-tock.  Tick-tock.  Run for your life.  Tick-tock.  Tick-tock.  Run till you can’t breathe any longer.  Tick-fkin-tock.  Catch the bus!  Yaye!!!  Miss the bus.  Tick-tock-tick-tock-tick-tock.  Run.  Run till you drop dead.
  • Clocking-in.  Aaargh.  You are now officially clocked in.  You are officially “working”.
  • Hungry?  Starving??  Don’t feel like eating???  Who the folks cares!!  The clock says it is a certain hour and you HAVE lunch – eat, nibble, chew, devour, swallow, sip, slurp, throw up if you must later.  It’s THE lunch break.
  • Watch how the hour hand never ever budges off its lazy warm ass.  Watch how the minute hand tortures you, teases you, bloody “harasses” you till you break down into million pieces.  The only good friend is the second hand, goes all the way in the same tick tock tick tock rhythm.  The second hand is your best friend – period – for the next three months.

I am doomed for the next three months cause A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do and also cause Money still don’t grow on trees (no matter how many times you wish on the shooting stars).  I can’t believe I start work the same day the first US Lady President does… but she can’t stop after three months.  So who’s the winner eh!!
