Monday, we need to talk...



"Monday, we need to talk." I said. "Why do you keep showing up unannounced?"


"I am announced." Monday said.

"Did you send me an email?"

"No."

"Did I miss your telephone call?" I said.

Monday paused. "No. Why do you dislike me so much?"

"I think dislike is too strong...you make me feel uncomfortable." I stammered.

"You know Tuesday has no personality." Monday blurted out. "Wednesday isn't quite there yet, if you know what I mean."

"Are you trying to make yourself feel better?" I said.

"And Thursday rides on the coattails of Friday...." M said.

"This is awkward." I sang.

"I've heard...Friday is your favorite ...child." Monday whispered.

"All I am asking is that you give a girl a notice, you know advance warning before you show up." I said.

Monday stared at JW. "Do you own a calendar?"

"Why yes I do." I said confidently.

"Go look at it."

  2. The days, weeks, months and seasons certainly do pass quickly, don't they?

    I'm still wondering where summer is... yet we had a frost overnight, so I guess winter is just about upon us... Yikes!

    Great writing!

  3. Mondays can be a little icky, can't they? Although there's definitely a part of it that I love and look forward to--everyone goes to school and work and I can tidy up the weekend mess!

  4. I agree with Mattenylou ... sometimes the weeks pass so quickly, it does seem a new one sneaks in there unannounced! I mean, didn't I just plant my tomato garden, and here we are raking leaves, oy!

  5. Thanks to all of you for coming by and commenting. I love hearing from you. Life is not just passing by - it is racing by. I thought it went fast when my kiddos were little. I can't keep up.
