Me & My Muse – Day 55: Growing Pains

Well, the torture is over, for now.  My Muse is sleeping peacefully, in her bed, probably dreaming about My Little Pony.

After that next episode, that wasn’t enough for her.  We watched the ENTIRE first season!  Man!  I thought that I was going to lose my sanity.  I used to wonder what friendship could be, but now I know.  Friendship is torture!  Ten hours of that show is way more than I can stand….


Muse:  Oh, don’t lie!  You loved it!

You’re the one that’s lying.  I nearly lost my sanity.

Muse:  Then why were you singing the theme song?

I take it back.  I lost my sanity entirely.  That’s why I was singing.

Muse:  You loved it and you know it!  So what’s your favorite pony?  You never answered me last night!

I don’t have one, since they’re all part of a show for 4-9 year old girls.

Muse:  Fine!  Be that way!  Tee hee!  I had such a good dream last night!  I was a pony, and I ran around with Pinkie Pie and the other ponies!

And you probably sung that song with them and said that friendship is magic.

Muse:  That’s what we did!   Tee hee!  How did you know?

It was a total guess.

Muse:  Anyway, the dream was good.  And I’m done raising my ideas forever.  I don’t know how to do it!  I suddenly forgot!

So you’re probably going to starve to death again….

Muse:  Wrong!  The ideas raise themselves, so I don’t have to do a thing.  Everyday, there’s a fresh source of food for me, so I never have to worry about going hungry.  Tee hee!

How is that possible?

Muse:  I used a different method this time, since I knew that this would happen eventually.

So you knew that your were going to forget?

Muse:  Well, it came to me in a dream, so I had to do something….

When was the last time you raised any ideas?

Muse:  About a week ago….Tee hee!

So you haven’t been raising any ideas this whole time?

Muse:  I don’t need to anymore!  They raise themselves!  It’s a special formula where they keep cloning over and over.

That doesn’t sound right.  You need healthier ideas than just cloned ones….

Muse:  I like them!  I always look forward to every meal!  They’re so delicious, and I never have to tend to them!  Now this is getting boring!  Can we play a game?  Please?

Games again?  How old is our adult Muse today?  Five?

Muse:  That’s right!  Tee hee!

You know that nine out ten psychiatrists would say this is a problem.

Muse:  For humans, yes!  But I’m a Intangible!  What would they have to say about us?  They don’t have anything!  Could they give happiness or any other emotion therapy?

They couldn’t.  Those are emotions not people.

Muse:  Well, there you go.  You’re just a boring adult, trying to tell me that I’m wrong all the time.  I’m not!  Now let’s play a game!  Tee hee!

I’m not in the mood for a game.  Go play with your stuffed animals.


And you’re an immature Muse.

Muse:  I know you are but what am I?

I’m not a Muse.

Muse:  But I am!  Let’s play a game!  Let’s play a game!  Let’s play a game game game game game!

How about not not not not not?

Muse:  How about we do do do do do?  PLLLLLLLLLBBBBBT!

More raspberries?  Come on.  Is this how an adult Muse acts?

Muse:  I’m not an adult!  I’m a little girl!  Tee hee!  I am! I am! I am!  I am I am I am I am I am I am!  Am am am am!

You’re just an immature Muse, thinking that you can get away with everything because you’re only a creative agent for my imagination.  You really need to grow up.

Muse:  Grow up?  Okay!  Tee hee!

No! No!  Not this again!

Muse:  But I love this game!  It’s so so much fun!  Tee hee!

But weren’t you tangible?

Muse:  I’m not now.  Just changed it before I started growing.  I remember the square cube law.  Tee hee!

I think I’ll just stay right here and let the stupid leave my house.

Muse:  Why don’t you grow with me?  It’s fun!  It’s fun fun fun!  Tee hee!

I’m Tangible!  Hello?

Muse:  That’s just an excuse!  You just don’t want to play with me! Here!  I’ll take you along instead!  Here we go!  Whee!!!

Growing 1

You’re growing a little faster than last time.  Now can you put me down?  I don’t want to go through this again!

Muse:  No!  Plus you look so cute.  Like my Ken doll.  Tee hee!

Well, you could at least loosen your grip so you don’t choke me…. *cough*

Muse:  There.  I also changed into something new.  Time to grow faster.  Wheeeeeeeeeeee hee hee hee hee hee!!!!

It’s a good thing that you’re Intangible.  You would crush all those buildings.

Muse:  But I can still grab one!  Watch.  Tee hee!

What else can I do?  If I try to escape, I will fall more than 1,000 feet to my death!

Muse:  They’re screaming! They love this game.  Now I’ll give them a fun ride.  Wheeeeee!

You just threw a skyscraper full of people!

Muse:  And it was fun!  They all enjoyed it.  I wish that you could do this with me.  Tee hee!  Time to give you a ride!  Gonna swing you around and around and around and AROUND!

Ughhhh…..Getting dizzy…..Uhnnn…..

Muse:  Time to change my shoes….Tee hee….

Can you…..Stop spinning……I’m going to be sick…..

Muse:  What?  Faster?  Okay!  If you say so!  Wheeeeeeeeeee!


Muse:  Yuck!  You just threw up on my hand!  I need to go wash them in this water…..

Careful!  I don’t want to drown….

Muse:  There.  I’m a little tired.  I’m gonna lie down for a while…..

Growing 3

Even with you lying down, I can’t escape!  What I need is a parachute….Wish I had one…..

Muse:  Pair of shoes?  I have a pair of shoes, but they’re probably too big for you!  Tee hee….

No.  I said PARACHUTE.

Muse:  I know.  They fit me perfectly, but you would have to be really big to fit them!

Never mind.  You act 5, but you don’t look it at all….

Muse:  You’re right.  I’ve been a boring adult long enough….

So why do you still look like an adult?  You act like a child, but you don’t look like one.

Muse;  Now I do!  Tee hee!  Time to switch back to the pink shoes, because I love pink…..Time to stand back up!  I’m a little smaller.  Tee hee!

NYC 2.0 - 1

Small?  You’re enormous!

Muse:  I’m small, okay?  Time to grow some more, because I love it!  Grow grow grow!  Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

NYC 2.0 - 2

NYC 2.0 - 3

Muse:  There we go!  I’m a big girl now!  Tee hee hee!

A big annoyance is what you are.

Muse:  I’m thirsty.  *gulp*  There we go.  Tee hee!

You just DRANK an entire river!

Muse:  Sorry I didn’t share.  I’ll share next time, okay?  These buildings are so small!  It’s like a toy city!

It’s not a toy.  It’s REAL.

Muse:  Why don’t you just grow with me?  I wouldn’t have to carry you….

I already told you….

Muse:  It’s because you’re no fun!  Time to keep growing!  WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HEE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Space 2.0 - 1

*gasp*  Air becoming thin…..You’re in outer space now.  Can you….put me back on earth before….my lungs burst?

Muse:  I’m hungry!  I’ll have my ideas in a bit, but for now, I’ll have you as a snack.  You tasted good before, so I’ll eat you again!  In you go!  Tee hee!


I feel a lot better now!  Tee hee!  I don’t know why Kyle has to be so boring.  Well, I guess I’m having fun all by myself…..Time to grow really big!  WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Space 2.0 - closeup

Wow!  That Earth is pretty small!  I think I’ll eat it!  Tee hee….

Petoooie!  Yuck!  Earth tastes terrible!  I guess I’ll stay big for a while.  I’ll pretend I’m Pinkie Pie!


Anyway, down there on that tiny Earth, today’s high is going to be 83 degrees.  Today’s silver lining is working more on my story.  Actually, I’m not gonna do that.  Kyle would do that.  The silver lining today is growing really big, having some more delicious ideas and watching more My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!  And playing more with my stuffed animals and playing dress up and a lot more other fun stuff!

To all of you who love to grow really big like me, tee hee, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


I wonder what the sun tastes like?  I guess I’ll find out!  Tee hee….
