Me & My Muse – Day 1019: Victorious

With my morning shift done and it finally being Friday, I can say that I have won.  I have made it through another week.  The weekend eagerly awaits, and I look forward to enjoying it.

Well, not quite.  I can’t really stay up too late tonight, since I have to get up early to go to a speech contest tomorrow morning.  When I return from the contest, I will be ready to enjoy my Saturday.


Muse: Private First Class Muse reporting for duty, sir!

*Muse gives a salute*

Wait a second!  Why are you reporting to me?  It’s not like I’m some kind of general or something.  You’re dressed up in a military outfit.  Is there a reason for this “reporting for duty”?

Muse:  Absolutely sir!  The top Brass assigned me to your ranks.  Just following orders, sir!

You don’t have to address me as “sir”.  So you’re a solider today?  You mentioned that you were Private First Class.

Muse:  I am Private First Class, and I worked real hard to get there, sir!  I worked the hardest and tried to be the best.  I was promoted quickly.  The Brass then gave me a new assignment:  report to Sergeant Major Walker.  That was a direct order!  I am now here and await your orders, sir!

You don’t have to call me “sir”!

Muse:  Negative, sir!  I will not abandon the protocols that I was taught!  Address each male superior as “sir”!  That’s what I was taught!

If it makes you feel better, go ahead.

Muse:   Now what are your orders for me, sir?

Orders?  I think that there’s a mistake.  I don’t lead an army or anything.

Muse:  Negative sir!  You are Sergeant Major Walker, the top commanding official for the army!

What army?

Muse:  The Intangible Army, sir!

Wouldn’t your Intangible President be Commander in Chief of that army?

Muse:  We don’t have an Intangible President, sir! Each region is sovereignly ran, with the Intangible Army spanning the whole realm!  You are the leader of the army, sir!

I guess I am for today.  Patrol the Realm of Imagination for intruders.  I guess if you want something to do, do that.

Muse:  Right away, sir!  I will not fail my mission!

*Muse salutes and vanishes in a beam of light*

There.  I got rid of her.  I guess I’m okay with her being a soldier.  But I’m not too comfortable with being a Sergeant Major.  It must be part of today’s transformation, I guess.

Time to cut to the chase.  I go to bed in a little bit, since I get up really early.  Time for dinner!

Today’s high is going to be 56 degrees and the silver lining is having the weekend off.

To those of you who are glad that it’s finally Friday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I’m on my patrol.  Since this realm is so big, I’m going to send out some help.

*Muse duplicates into 10,000 copies*

Muse:  Ranks!  Scout out the realm for intruders!  I will patrol the perimeter!  Go! Go! Go!

Division of Muses:  Yes Ma’am!

*Division of 10,000 Muses disperse around the Realm of Imagination, patrolling their assigned routes*
