I’m right at the halfway point. Just two more days and it will be the weekend again.
Work was straightfoward, smooth, and busy. I put away the truck, got dough done, and handled the hectic lunch rush. All in a day’s work.
Muse: More productive than mine, I can say…
What are you talking about? You got to sneak out of the castle and go adventuring, right?
Muse: No. I don’t want to take the risk. I have a really good disguise and can even disguise my voice, but I don’t want to chance it. Everyone in the kingdom knows who I am.
Princess Muse of the Imaginary Kingdom, right?
Muse: That is correct. I fear that someone will be able to see through my disguise.
Very well. If you want to play it safe, then play it safe.
Muse: I wish that I had the freedom that you have! It is so boring back at the castle. Beauty treatments, scheduled meals, and all those lessons…
What kind of lessons?
Muse: You know! Violin lessons and royal training lessons, since I’m going to be queen someday…Lessons like that.
I don’t know, since I’m not royalty so I would appreciate a little more insight.
Muse: Well, all you need to know is that the lessons are boring! My posture has to be perfect. My arms can’t be out of place. The way that I have to talk…Oh! Don’t get me started on that!
It’s like they want you to be the perfect princess.
Muse: Why should I have to do all this? Mommy told me that she went through the same lessons when she was my age. *sigh* Everything she does…She can do a lot better than me…
Well, she has had a lot of experience in being a queen.
Muse: That is what frustrates me. How am I going to be like her? I am NOT my mommy, and they should remember it all well…Mmm…
What are you tasting?
Muse: Oh, sorry. My clone is having royal tea right now. It’s 4:00. We always have tea around 4:00…
And you’re in two places at once, so I can see how you can react to that if the experience is shared…
Muse: Okay. Tea’s over. Back to my room…
Hmm…What is it like to be in two places at once?
Muse: It’s kind of strange. I am talking to you and I am walking to my room right now. And I…Oh dear!
Muse: It’s the tea. We’ll talk tomorrow, okay?
*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*
What happened? Did she spill her tea? I know that it’s a little nosy, but I would like to find out. Read my Muse’s mind. One Privilege, ENGAGE!
Oh…Okay. So her princess form has that same problem with her undeveloped bladder. I do not want to embarrass her, so I will keep quiet on the matter.
Time to do some more job hunting, and then call it a day.
Today’s high is going to be 28 degrees and the silver lining is having the rest of the day off to search for work.
To those of you who are looking for work, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse clone: There. All changed. That tea always does it to me. Why can’t I ever hold it?
Muse: What are you still doing here? Oh! I forgot to make you disappear!
*bedroom door swings open*
King: Forgot to make WHO disappear?
Muse: Oh no…
