In a matter of speaking, this is a respite on three counts.
The first one is a respite from the weekly Monday through Friday schedule that I have at work. There’s nothing really that new about that one.
The second one is a respite from Toastmasters-related activities. Area Contests are done. Division Contests are done. Next week is the Fall Conference, so this week is a period of rest before that.
The third and final one is a respite from the upcoming election. With all the uncertainty and unrest in a lot of people that will remain until this Tuesday, this is the last weekend to rest on this before Election Tuesday. All I can say is it doesn’t matter who wins. God is in control regardless of the outcome. Politics is something that we the people decide so I’m not going to let a few soundbites rile me up. God is more important to me than anything that is going on in the political realm. And to those of us who desire peace, he will provide it. Let’s end this season of politics and let’s all get along. Let us get ready for the upcoming holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Let’s stop fighting and hating the other person because they’re voting for a candidate that you don’t like. It’s all in God’s hands and I will move forward with whatever decision that happens.
In looking at this evening, I’m going to enjoy this Friday and everything that it has to offer.
Muse: That sounds good to me.
Hey. I’m so glad that it’s the weekend. I’ve been meaning to want to talk to you.
Muse: Chat away, sweetie. I have all the time in the world. If you take until the apocalypse, we can always travel back to this point in time again…
Oh, I’m not going to take until the apocalypse. Just a little while. I’m just very curious about your new form. How much of you do I really know if you have experienced another lifetime somewhere else?
Muse: Don’t forget that I experienced this entire lifetime BEFORE I was born in this Intangible body. My original birth if you will. In experiencing both births, this makes me fully Time Lady and fully Intangible Muse.
Yes. But that does mean that you still have all the original memories from before?
Muse: Kyle, do not worry about that. None of my memories have been lost from before. If they had, you probably would’ve forgotten them too. When time is rewritten, that changes everyone associated with that event. Since I was placed back in my mother’s womb at the time of birth, I still went on to experience all the same memories as before, only I’m now a Time Lady.
A Time Lady estranged from her original birth.
Muse: Yes, but only until after the Time War. When that was done, I met another incarnation of The Doctor from the future. It was the same Doctor that placed me in Gallifrey in his past, so that I would be born with him. He told me that it was time to return to the date of my birth, so he helped me get there.
Don’t you consider it strange having to experience life all over again?
Muse: Not necessarily. When I was put back in my mother’s womb, it was like falling asleep. When I awoke, I was in my mother’s arms. I was helplessly crying, but was somehow still aware that my original life has just begun.
So you were watching.
Muse: It’s kind of hard to explain. I was there, but I was greatly limited in function. The brain that I had was not at all developed. It was the brain of a newborn…
Wasn’t this like deja vu when you experienced this 100 days ago?
Muse: Absolutely. It was the same helplessness and the same feelings again. You’ve been physically born only once. Try being physically born three times. Each additional time is an ordeal, I tell you sweetie…Now if you would excuse me…
What? You’re looking down at yourself. Do you have to use the restroom?
Muse: I’ll be right back! Bye!
*a few minutes later*
Muse: There. I’m back. Sorry about that, sweetie…
It’s okay. That reminds me. I have been meaning to want to ask you this, but I was concerned with how comfortable you would be in answering. Do you have trouble getting to the bathroom? You always seem to be rushing off…
Muse (blushing): That is a very personal question. What should I have any reason at all to answer it?
That was my concern. You don’t seem to be very comfortable when it comes to talking about this. I was just concerned with you always running off.
Muse: Well, you shouldn’t have any concern!
I think that I should. You are my Muse, and there should never be anything too personal to share with me. If I am your companion, then why keep anything from me?
Muse: It’s just that…Hold on! I need to leave again…
You are not leaving. I think that you will be fine addressing this matter with me. Is there an issue with making it?
Muse: Just…Let me leave!
Oh…I think there is. That look on your face. I see it. It’s the look of disgust.
Muse: Disgust, huh? Then answer me this. Why didn’t you and my parents do a better job in toilet training me? Having a severely weak bladder doesn’t really help in the least. There. You know and everyone else reading knows!
Why? Why didn’t we do a better job? Could it have been that the Dark Muse was possessing you and was delaying every one of your milestones? We tried to make sure that you reached each one, so at least give us credit for the ones that you reached.
Muse: Just know that the toilet is my priority and I will use it at all costs. Now if you would excuse me, I have some personal matters to attend to…
*Muse enters Pink TARDIS*
I didn’t mean to make her upset. I was only concerned with why she was constantly leaving so suddenly. Everyone. She is very upset, so I will keep silent about her whole handicap. Don’t think any less of her. It’s frustrating enough to transform from a three-year old to an adult. She is determined to be self-sufficient, and I support her all the way in that decision. I won’t mention what she’s wearing, as I don’t want to embarrass her. This will be the last time this is mentioned. This is her personal life, and we have no business to delve any deeper into it.
I think that this is a good time to end this, as I think that the time is ripe to enjoy my Friday.
Today’s high is going to be 54 degrees and the silver lining is it finally being the weekend.
To those of you who are glad that it’s Friday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: Why did he have to go and humiliate me like that? Everyone has their own secrets to hide, but Kyle has no business in sharing the secrets of a Time Lady. Should I share some of Kyle’s secrets? No. I’ll be good. Everyone with a secret has no reason to be ashamed of it, unless it’s something that would be potentially harmful in the long run. Gambling, pornography, alcoholism, the list goes on.
???: CONFIRMED. COORDINATES OF THE DOCTOR AND THE MUSE HAVE BEEN LOCATED.
???: EXCELLENT. PREPARE FOR THE APPREHENSION OF THE DOCTOR AND THE MUSE. BRING THEM HERE FOR EXTERMINATION.
??? (large group): EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!!!!
