Me & My Muse – Day 1072: Keep it Simple, Stupid

Or to put it nicer, I prefer the acronym:  K.I.S.S.  Simplicity is something that I eagerly desire in my life.  The more complicated things get, the more frustrating the situation is for me.  The same goes for a lot of people’s lives.

But here’s the matter.  Some people make their lives more complicated.  They’re in too many activities and they never allow themselves enough time to relax and unwind.  Others have kept things simple and have let go of the things that aren’t really necessary.

Is my life too complicated?  Am I in too many activities?  It’s something that I need to ask myself, so I don’t get swept away by the current.

Keep it simple, stupid.


Muse:  Duh…What does stupid mean?

You just demonstrated it.  It’s the lack of knowledge.  The lack of intelligence.

Muse:  What’s intelligence?  You’re using big words…duh-huh…

When did you get so stupid?  Did somebody dare you to?

Muse:  I don’t know what you’re talking about.  This morning, I was hungry and I went to the restaurant.  The door was locked and nobody would let me in.

It’s because the restaurant wasn’t open yet!  Did you look at the store hours?

Muse:  You mean that thing that had a bunch of numbers?  I thought that it was a bunch of math problems!  I’m not good at math…duh…

Um…You’re drooling!

Muse:  Well, I’m thirsty…

So you’re going to drink your drool?  How about a glass of water?

Muse:  That is a great idea!  Where can I find a glass?

Here’s one.

Muse:  Um…Thank you.  How do you use it?

You’re telling me that you don’t know how to drink a glass of water?

Muse:  Wait a second!  I got this!  No I don’t.  I forgot…duh…

You lift up the glass.  You open up your mouth and tilt the glass.  You do that until the glass is empty…

Muse:  Man!  Those directions are hard!  Could you repeat that?

Just tilt it…No!  You’re getting water all over your neck!

Muse:  Duh…That’s okay.  I like using the glass better this way.

Just a second.  I think you might need some help…

Remedy:  Don’t worry.  I have this.  (Whispers) She’s been an invalid all day.  I recognized this when she was standing outside a restaurant that was closed, yanking at the door…

Muse:  Duh, can we go eat something?  i want to use that pointy thing…

Remedy:  You mean a fork?  We’ll get you something, dear.  Come with me…

*Remedy and Muse disappear in a beam of light*

Well, my Muse is stupid today.  Not a very good form.  I’ll just wait until tomorrow to see what she is…

Tonight should be fun.  Board games, dancing and more!  I can hardly wait…

Today’s high is going to be 73 degrees and the silver lining is playing board games and line dancing tonight.

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


Remedy:  Here.  Let me.  You’ll hurt yourself if you try to do it yourself.

Muse:  What is this red stuff?  Is it tomato sauce?

Remedy:  No.  It’s blood!  Here.  Let me clean you up…

Muse:  Duh-huh-huh-huh-huh…
