Me & My Muse – Day 306: Another Shift, Another Movie

I have another shift today, but fortunately it’s earlier in the day.  With it being from 10-3, I can get it out of the way.

And for the record, I did not mean to rhyme three times in a row.  It just happened to come out that way.  Now, after the 5 hour shift at the pizza pit, I will be seeing a movie at 5:15.  What movie?  The Amazing Spider Man 2, of course!  And it’s about time that I see it, too.

Besides that, my day is pretty open.  I may write if there’s time.  I kind of hope that tonight lends itself to this happening….


Remedy:  Kyle!  I figured out why we lost confidence last night.

Why did we?

Remedy:  It wasn’t the shield.  It was the confidence that we were using.  What we need is unshakable confidence.

Unshakable?  Good luck finding that.

Remedy:  Good luck?  I actually have some right here.

Just like that?  Sounds too convenient to me….

Remedy: It may be, but I have some.  Here.  This confidence is unlimited.  That’s what makes it unshakable.

Nice.  I feel like I can do anything now!

Remedy:  Good.  But unfortunately, I don’t have enough for everyone.  That means the rest of the world is susceptible to her confidence draining self….

To be honest, I really feel sorry for her.  She doesn’t even know how much damage she’s causing.  To her, she just wants to make friends.  She doesn’t want to be alone.

Remedy:  And even worse, no one will tell her that she is draining their confidence, since they lack the confidence to tell her.

But we have the confidence to tell her.

Remedy:  I wouldn’t.  It would hurt her feelings.  Even if you were to tell her, she probably wouldn’t believe you….

I almost feel like I should.  The poor Muse is a confidence leech and she doesn’t even know it.  The ironic thing is that she doesn’t ever get to use the confidence that she drains from everyone….What’s this?  A text message!

Muse:  Kyle.  Can you come visit me?  I know that I might pass out again, but I don’t care.

Remedy:  Go and see her.  You have the unshakable confidence that I gave you.  Right?

It’s right here.  I still have it.  Time to respond to her.

Kyle:  Are you sure that you want me to visit?  There’s no point in me doing so if you’re not going to be able to see me anyway.

Remedy:  I don’t care!  *sob*  My stupid body….I get so afraid when you’re around me.  But I hate being alone!  This bunny can only do so much for me….

Kyle:  Okay.  I’m coming over.

Remedy:  Remember.  She has no confidence.  And if she ever does, it’s for a very short time.

How is she having it now?

Remedy:  That’s the even more dangerous part.  She can drain confidence from just electronic communication alone.

And she doesn’t know that she’s doing this?

Remedy:  Of course not!  No one has ever told her.  Remember?

Muse:  Kyle!  Are you coming over?

Kyle:  Yes!  I’m on my way.

I gotta go, Remedy.

Remedy:  Good luck, Kyle!

Let’s see….

*teleports to the Realm of Imagination and approaches the Muse’s house*

What’s this?  Another text message?

Muse:  Don’t come in.

Kyle: What?  You just told me to visit!

Muse:  Go away.

Kyle:  Well, I’m coming in.  You told me to visit, so I’m entering.  I’m opening the door….

Muse:  No!  Please don’t!

*opens door and hears a scream*

Kyle:  There.  I’m in.  Where are you?

Muse:  In my room.  Why are you here?  I told you to leave.

Kyle:  Look.  You have a problem.  A problem that nobody has ever told you.

Muse:  What are you talking about?  A lot of people know about it!  It’s why they all laugh at me….

Kyle:  No.  Not that problem!  It’s a totally different one.  Nobody has ever told you this problem because they lack the confidence to do so.

Muse:  What is this problem?

Kyle:  You may not know this, but you drain the confidence of everyone you’re around.

Muse:  I don’t believe you!  You just don’t like me!

Kyle:  Why else are you confident for such a short time?  You wanted me to come over, and now, you are deathly afraid of me.  You took that confidence and then you drained it.  Your body is a black hole that drains everyone’s confidence.

Muse:  (from bedroom, in tears) I DON’T BELIEVE YOU!!!!!!

*entire house shakes violently*

Whoa!  That confidence is really hanging on!  I definitely felt a drain in confidence when she did that.  And another text message….

Muse:  Get out of my house.

Kyle:  I only wanted to tell you your problem.

Muse:  I don’t believe you.  I don’t drain confidence.  Now leave.

Kyle:  You don’t believe me because you lack the confidence to believe what I am saying….


*scream shakes the entire house, shatters the glass of every window and engulfs me in a vortex that sends me back to reality*


This is getting frustrating.  For someone who lacks the confidence to believe me, how do I tell her that she has a confidence-draining problem?  Oh well….I’ll figure this out sooner or later.  I’ve got 100 days….

Today’s high is going to be 67 degrees and the silver lining is seeing The Amazing Spider Man 2 tonight.

To those of you who love watching blockbusters, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I drain everyone’s confidence?  I don’t believe him!  He just doesn’t like me!  Nobody does!

*embraces stuffed bunny tight and sobs uncontrollably*
