Me & My Muse – Day 41: Gonna Need a Leash

How did I fare on the writing last night?  Let’s just say that I was only able to accomplish half of my goal.  I did manage to make more progress on The Tale of Zachary Willowbrook: The School Years but it was getting too late to do any more writing.

Looking at my Muse, I haven’t been able to find any other cure for her.  I talked to the old man again.   He said that he was working on another one, but it will take a while.  And even if he makes one, it won’t be as powerful as the first one….


Muse:  I don’t feel so well….BLEEEEEEAHHH!!!

Vomit?  You threw up all over the place.  Are you okay? ….Oh.  You’re Little Miss Muse again….

Muse:  I was hungry, and I ate 100 scoops of ice cream.  I don’t know why I threw up….

Um, Tangible rules?

Muse:  Oh.  That’s right!  I forgot to get rid of those stupid rules!  There!  I should be able to eat anything now!  Tee hee!

So now it’s back to the annoying Muse again?

Muse:  You’re annoying, because you’re a boring adult!  Now tell me a story.  I haven’t heard one in a while and you always tell them the best.  Please?

I don’t have a story for you right now.

Muse:  Please please please please please please pl….

Oh, don’t start with that again!  Here’s your story, “princess”.  Once upon a time, there was a bratty Muse who always got what she wanted.  One day, the Muse was spanked squarely in the bottom.  She cried and cried and went to her room and the man lived happily ever after.  The end.

Muse:  That story is stupid!  I hate it!  Tell me another one!

You don’t get another one.

Muse:  Fine!  Be right back.  I’m gonna have candy for breakfast.  It will be the best breakfast ever.  Tee hee!

But that’s not a healthy breakfast!

Muse:  I’m back!  I just ate 500 Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and I didn’t get sick this time!  I also ate 50 bags of M&M’s, 200 bags of skittles, 30 Hershey bars, 40 Snicker bags, 30 Milkyways….

That is way too much sugar.  You will be bouncing off the walls.

Muse:  I’m not finished!  I also had 60 York Peppermint Patties, 90 Paydays, 30 Almond Joys, 60 Mounds, 700 Sweettarts, 30 100 Grands, 500 Chunkys, 300 Kit Kat bars,  70 5th Avenues and 100 Heath bars.  Best breakfast ever!  Tee hee!

And all the sugar can not be good.

Muse:  Tee hee hee hee!  This is so fun!  So fun! So fun! So fun!  So fun!  Can you read me another story?  Can you? Can you? Can you? Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

Um, never give a Muse a candy bar?

Muse:  What are you talking about?  Candy was not made for adults!  Candy was made for children!  Candy is amazing! Candy is great!  I think I’ll have some more! Tee hee!  There!  Two more bags of M&M’s!   They’re gone gone gone gone gone!  Tee hee hee….

You do know that you’ll crash from having all that sugar?

Muse:  No I won’t!  Intangible rules!  I won’t crash ever! Ever! Ever! Ever! Ever! Ever!  Tee hee!

Not if I have anything to say about it.  I didn’t want to use this, but you leave me no choice.

Muse:  What?  A leash?  But I’m not a dog!  I’m not! I’m not! I’m not!

But you’re a wild and hyperactive child, so that will suffice.  There.

Muse:  Ugh….So tired…..Feel sleepy….Good night….

And that leash also activates some Tangible rules.  I didn’t activate the other one, or she would be vomiting candy everywhere.  Back you go, Muse….


Is this how it’s going to be from now on?  This is only day one of her like this!  I will need to sedate her or something.  She can’t keep acting like this….

Anyway, the high today is going to be 84.  The silver lining will be me making more progress on my story.

To all of you who have children, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  *snore* Ice cream….Candy….More….Delicious….Tee hee….
