Me & My Muse – Day 58: Back to Work

With it being Wednesday, the work continues, with a four day work week….


Nurture:  I QUIT!

What?  No!  That would mean that I would have to deal with her.

Muse:  Come on!  Tee hee!  It was just a game! Let’s play it again!

Nurture:  That girl is completely unmanageable.  I have tried every strategy that I know, most of which would have worked on the most difficult of Muses.  But not yours.  Yours is special.  She has actually managed to resist every single one of my techniques.  Muse?  Her name should be changed to Impossible, because that’s what she is.  Impossible!

Muse:  Stop being boring!  It’s the funnest game in the world and you just don’t want to play with me!  Fine!  I’ll play with Kyle!  He’s FUNNER!

Can’t we negotiate….

Nurture:  There is nothing to negotiate with that little nightmare of yours.  The neighbors were smart to flee, since her house is larger than the ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD now.  I will be following suit with the neighbors, and move far away from her.  The little imp is yours now.  Farewell and good day!

Can’t we….

Nurture:  NO!

Great.  Now I’m stuck with you.

Muse:  Yay!  Let me give you a hug!  A nice big hug!  Tee hee!

Um, you’re over a mile tall.  I don’t think you can hug me.

Muse:  Then I’ll get smaller then!  But just for the hug!  After that I’ll grow back….Wheee!!!!  There.  You’re like a stuffed animal now.  Stuffed Kyle!  Tee hee!

Can this wait?  I’m kind of busy todaaaaaaaaaaay…..

Muse:  Uhhhhhhhhhhh…..Doesn’t that feel good!  A nice big huggie-wuggie-uggie!  Tee hee!  A nice….TIGHT one!

Ughh….*cough* You’re….choking me….

Muse:  Well that’s what you get for not visiting me!  Why didn’t you visit me?

*cough* *cough* *gasp*  I can’t breathe!  Why were you so impatient?  I was going to visit you today!

Muse:  Nah-ah!  You weren’t gonna visit me!  You would rather keep me there with that boring babysitter!  There.  Hug time is over!  Time to “grow up”.  Tee hee!  Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

You don’t know me.  I SAID that I wouldn’t forget to visit you.  And I was going to today.

Muse:  Liar liar pants on fire!  You didn’t want to visit me!  Admit it!

I didn’t look forward to visiting you but I was going to!

Muse:  Liar liar stupid pants!  PLLLLLLLLLBBBBBT!

You just drenched me with your saliva.


This is humiliating!  You are more than a mile tall, and I am helpless to do anything to control you.

Muse:  Well, I wouldn’t have to hold you if you knew how to “grow up”.  Tee hee!

I AM grown up.  It’s you that’s not.  You act like you’re five and you’re literally five!

Muse:  What’s wrong with being five?  I just turned it!  Tee hee!

Don’t tell me that all your future memories got erased.

Muse:  Those memories were boring so I ate them.  They were good.  Tee hee!

Well, I know that they’re not gone for good.  The cure usually always restores them.

Muse:  Cure?  But I’m not sick!  I can count to 10!  Can you?

Yes  I can.

Muse:  Liar!

I don’t want to count to….

Muse:  Liar!  Liar!

One two three four five six seven eight nine ten!

Muse:  Do it again!  I’ll do it with you this time!

*sigh*  One two three four five six seven eight nine ten!

Muse:  I can spell my name too!  Can you?  I’ll go first.  M-U-S-E.  Muse.  Tee hee!

*sigh*  K-Y-L-E.  Kyle.

Muse:  I wanna play something else!  Let’s play dolls!  You can be the doll, since I’m such a big girl.  Tee hee!

Good luck with playing with a doll the size of a grain of sand….

Muse:  I’ll get smaller, but only for this game!  After that, I’ll grow up again!  Tee hee!  Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!  There!  You look like Ken.  I’ll call you Kyle Ken!

Where’s Barbie?

Muse:  I’m Barbie, silly!  And I’m gonna kiss you, Kyle Ken!  Mwah! Mwah!  Mwah! Mwah!

How much of those memories did you eat?

Muse:  Most of them!  I saved all my favorite ones.  Tee hee….Actually, I’m hungry.  Did you know that you taste really good?  You have such a good flavor.  Tee hee!

But how can you eat me?  You’re Intangible!

Muse:  I do what I do every time I eat you.  I make you Intangible.  Tee hee!

I….Don’t know how you do that.

Muse:  It is easier than tying shoes, which is another thing I know how to do!  Tee hee!

Now I see why Nurture got rid of you.

Muse:  I’m glad she did!  She was boring.  It was my whole plan to get rid of her in the first place, and I succeeded!  Tee hee!  Let’s play some more!  Kyle Ken, do you love me?  Yes I do, Muse Barbie.

Stop moving my mouth up and down!  I’m not a doll!

Muse:  Yes you are!  Tee hee!  Yes you are!  Yes you are!  Yes you are!  …..Oh!  I’m really hungry now.  Time for some more yummy ideas.  Be right back!


Better end this while she’s having her lunch.  From my understanding,  the cure will revert the memories back anyway, despite her eating them.  All the memories do is remain inside of her.  Muses don’t have digestive systems.  All the ideas they have ever eaten remain in them, until they spit them out.

Looking at my work week, I will be working four days in a row.  It could be five, if I work Sunday again, which I hope that I don’t.  I need a day off, to preserve my sanity.

Today’s high is going to be 80 degrees and the silver lining will be more progress on the Zorpozian language.  I have a lawn to mow so I need to get going.

To all of you who are grinding or returning to the grind, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I love playing with Kyle Ken!  I think I’ll play with him aaaall day!  Tee hee!
