One of those days


I’m never good the next day when I don’t sleep. The rain, lightning, and wind kept me up all night. Needless to say, I awoke in a foul mood and right then I knew it was going to be one of those days. It’s just the way I am. Whether biological or psychological, I can’t help myself. Reluctantly I slithered out of bed. I looked out of the window to see the blustery maelstrom outside and I snorted a disgusted groan followed by a well annunciated short word starting with sixth letter of the alphabet. It wasn’t my usual practice to curse obscenities although turbulent weather always aroused a crudeness of unparalled proportion in me.  It’s bad enough to have to brave the busy road to work on a good weather morning. Traffic conditions today would be enough to test the patience of a saint. While I’m many things; a pillar of virtue is not one of them, especially with dark circles under my eyes and an attitude thorn in my side.  I checked the calendar by my bedside. Yep, it was day twenty seven of my cycle. I was syndromic for sure. Be warned I hissed under my breath. Cross my path today and my unsuspecting coworkers were about to have as bad a day as I was about to experience. I’d make sure of it! Whatever they had to throw in my direction had best be reconsidered for another day or preferably reassigned to someone else. I wasn’t going to take shit from anybody today – even my boss. Hopefully people at work would be able to tell just by looking at me that I was in “bitch” mode and they would prudently keep their distance. At least if they knew what was good for them. A flash of lightning and a rolling boom of thunder startled me. The rain pummeled like a drum on the roof. That’s when the lights went out. No power! No shower! The hell with it. I went back to bed.

  1. This is a subject to be pondered.
    There is a lot you could read on my blog if you have the time you may pass by.
    Long time no news from you.

  2. Remind me not to pop in on one of those days. 🙂
    I have been absent from blogging for some time. Will certainly be back to your site more often.

    • Hopefully your absence hasn’t been for health reasons. Nice to hear from you again. Thank you also for noting that my novel, Finding Ruby, has been published. That’s the good news. The bad news is that promotion and marketing is very hard work. Stay well and take care.
