The Weekend Superstar

Putting My Feet In the Dirt September Prompt#3- I Am The Weekend

I am the bringer of mushroom pizza

the giver of peanut butter flavored snacks

on my say so time  will stop and for the next two days and  it will be permanently  nine o’clock in the morning

when the air is at it’s coolest  and the Sun is shining and the radio is playing

Mozart or Ruth Brown sometimes Abba or Joan Jett.

 

We will  not rush off to do the laundry, or pick up the mail or shop for eggs

maybe we  will watch Pee Wee’s Playhouse or I will take pictures of my cat’s paws

and put them on Facebook and try to guess how many ‘likes’ they will get.

Ask my dog, ask my cat, ask my jade plant that refuses to die even though

I am a notorious plant killer

and they will tell you

I am the weekend

and they think everything I do is fun.

They also like to spend all day chasing the same fly around our house.

So as you can see, I have a lot to live up to in just two days.

Strange Beginning and Odd Endings

Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: Odd

I cannot  wake up

I cannot fall asleep

I feel like I am drowning on dry land

and if that is true there is probably a shark

watching me from behind a rock

and

a ghostly Pirate’s ship floating above my head – with a murderous thieving crew

watching me from the deck

waiting to strike

me dead.

 

We are on dry land and the rules of normal do not apply

to a world

where nothing makes sense and everything is Odd

and I am sure that Shark knows I am drowning, it knows I am weak.

It is  going to eat me.

I am sure of it.

If the Pirates don’t get me first.

Because I cannot wake up

and I cannot  fall asleep.
