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.
