Me & My Muse – Day 1153: The Countdown Begins…

Depending on who you are, there are two different countdowns that have begun.  If you are looking at the school year,  your calendar has three more days until summer is over.

But if you’re like me and look at the seasons, summer only has 19 days left.  19 days before fall officially hits.  Even now, the temperatures have already dropped, and it is actually cold at night.  While 80’s were the norm this summer, we are finally seeing the 70’s in the forecast.  There will be one more warm up before summer ends.  I call this “Summer’s Last Hurrah”.

Last night, it appeared that I was still in my Muse’s dream.  It took me several attempts but I finally broke out of it.  Sure enough, I saw a message on the answering machine.  It was work.  How am I going to explain to them that I was in my Muse’s dream?  I did work my entire shift, but it was entirely within her dream.  That brings forth another issue.  The lawn wasn’t mowed.  I had to mow it again since I only mowed it in her dream.  It was almost getting dark but I got it done.

I also just got back from work to pick up my check.  Of course they didn’t believe me when I told them that I was in my Muse’s dream.  It’s no different than telling the teacher that the dog ate your homework.

This morning, I feel a little off.  Like something important was taken from me.  What could it be?  I just don’t know what it is…

Regarding my Muse, she should be sleeping for several days.  My anger was enough that I think that I induced a coma.  That means no caring for my Muse for several days.  That should be nice…



No!  How did she…?  Well, I still have the inter-dimensional baby monitor on.  Do I have to…?

*vanishes and appears in Muse’s room*

I guess I have to…How old are you?  Hmm…That’s strange…I’m usually able to determine that with the One Privilege…I’m guessing that you’re about a year old.  Maybe 11 months?

*Muse radiates with a series of flashes, and begins floating out of her crib*

Muse: Dadadadadadadadadada!!!!

*picks up Muse*

Let’s see.  You’re pretty light.  A little more than a gallon of milk.  Maybe 12 pounds?

*sets down Muse, gets out ruler, measures her, and picks her up again*

And you’re 26 inches today…Hey!  What are you doing?

*Muse floats up and uses psychokinesis to make me circle around her in a rapid circuit*

Hey!  Stop it! Stop!

*Muse lets go, making me fly against the wall*

Muse:  Tee hee hee hee hee hee!

It’s not funny!  You could’ve hurt me!

*Muse continues floating, positioning her body in a sitting position*

Do I have the internet here?  Oh yeah!  This is her same house.  There should be internet!

*runs out to the den and gets on computer*

Let’s see.  Did I say she was 11 months?  And I think I said 12 pounds and 26 inches.  She is as tall as a six month old and weighs as much as a two month old.  Six month clothing it is…Wait!  Why can’t I use my One Privilege anymore?

*reappears in the room next to Muse, who is still floating in her sitting position*

Muse:  Dadadadada!!!!

No.  You didn’t.  You…DIDN’T!  You didn’t just take my One Privilege, did you?  Hey!!!!

*gets spun around and twirled around the room rapidly and tossed against the wall*

Muse:  Tee hee hee hee hee!

Stop it!  You’re going to hurt me if you keep doing that! Now, let me change your diaper…

*removes Muse’s footed sleeper and takes off her diaper*

Phew!  It’s just a wet one.  It’s a good thing that I have every size of diaper, since I can’t produce new ones with my One Privilege…Hmm…It looks like you’re a size 2 today…

*cleans Muse and puts new diaper on her*

There.  All changed. Whoa.  Hey!

*Muse grabs me, which shrinks me down to fit in the palm of her hand*

Muse:  Dada-dyl!

Put me down!

*Muse closes her grip around me and begins flailing me around*


Muse:  Tee hee hee hee!!! Blllbblll…*makes raspberry sound*

*soft colorful bouncy balls materialize and fall onto the floor*

Muse: Dadada…

*Muse presses me against her stomach*

Hey stop it!  You’re squeezing me. You’re *choke* Cutting off my circulation…

*Muse loosens her grip on me*

That is enough.  You are going back to sleep!  One Privilege, ENGAGE!

Muse: Dada!!!

What?  Nothing happened!  How did you…? I don’t have my privilege!  Well, I’m leaving!

*teleports back to reality*

Well, I can at least still teleport.  Something tells me that today is going to be a rough day with my Muse being able to do whatever she wants.  I can’t stop her or restrain her anymore.  And with all those powers, she doesn’t even know how to control them at that age!  I need to find a way to get my One Privilege back!  I didn’t think that I could ever lose it but I think that I just did…

I’ll try to enjoy the rest of my day, but I need a way to get my privilege back.

Today’s high is going to be 76 degrees and the silver lining is having this day off.

To those of you who are enjoying your Saturday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.



*baby bottle filled with milk appears in her hands*

Hey!  What’s all this…Milk? Oh no!  I’m in her bottle!  AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

*Muse begins drinking her bottle, floating in her sitting position, emitting a powerful aura around her*
