Me & My Muse – Day 27: The Waiting Game

It begins, like so many other days. Waiting, waiting and more waiting.   Something that I like to call The Waiting Game….


Muse:  What are yoooooooou waiting for?

I’m waiting for my shift to begin at work.  Oh, nice song by the way.

Muse:  Hee!  Thanks.  So when does the waiting stop?

It stops when I leave for work.  It gets so annoying after a while.  I don’t work from morning until afternoon, like a NORMAL job.  Just 4 hour shifts in the afternoon, so it becomes a waiting game.  I hate it.

Muse:  Did it ever occur to you that maybe the job that you are working at is only going to be temporary?  Stop being Mr. Negative!  You have so much going for you!

That’s my problem.  I’m not patient enough to see everything happen.  For everything to fall into place.  For the seeds to finally sprout and produce an amazing crop.  How’s  three years of waiting?  Three years and no crops yet.

Muse:  Maybe it will be four years.  You don’t know when it’s going to happen.

Are you okay?  Usually you’re very annoying and you don’t act your age.

Muse:  I am perfectly fine, thank you very much!  I have been taking my medication like you said, and this is the result.

A quieter, more helpful Muse?  I could live with that.

Muse;  Tee hee! Thanks!  Now am I going to hear anything more from “Poor Pitiful Me”?

Now you’re doing it to me.  I guess I’m just eager for some new changes to happen in my life.  I mean, the audience doesn’t know the half of it.

Muse:  And they don’t need to.  Give them the Kyle they know and love!

I will.  But you do have to admit.  Working on Sunday is a drag, isn’t it?

Muse:  A drag?  What about all the pastors and people that work at nursing homes and hospitals?  I’m sure that they are totally bummed.  And what about me?  I never take a day off from raising your rambunctious ideas!  Never!

I see your point.  But however you slice it, none of my shifts ever start in the morning.  It is a continuous waiting game.  A game of waiting for my 4 hour sentence.

Muse:  4 hour sentence?  Come on!  It’s not that bad.

That may be the case, but I’m still waiting.

Muse:  You’re waiting on the world to change….

Yup.  That’s pretty much what I’m doing.  And I hope that it changes soon, for me.

Muse:  Well, my break time is over.  I can hear them waking up.  I’m coming, ideas!


Something weird definitely is going on.  My Muse is usually all annoying, but now she’s….not….

Today’s weather is going to be 74 degrees.  The silver lining will be going to bed early, I guess, since I can’t think of anything else for today.

To all of you who are not playing the waiting game like me, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Friday:  Remember to take your medication everyday, okay?

Muse:  Don’t worry, I will! ….Oh yeah!  Why hasn’t he asked about our marriage yet?
