Me & My Muse – Day 1630: Twas the Day Before Christmas

…and all through the house

Kyle’s got no work so there’s no need to grouse

His Santa cap was sitting on the bedpost with care

Reserved just for Christmas to be crowned on his hair

Kyle’s in the midst of his three-day vacation

Just three whole days of rest and relaxation

Then out of the oven before they get black

I will feast on few a Christmas snack

Then to herald the evening such a sight it will be

When he attends the Christmas Eve service at Midland Free

Then off to my grandma’s house with plenty of cheer

A gathering with snacks.  The company’s near

My aunt and my uncles, my grandparents too

Just two of my cousins, all this I knew

The gathering warm, the noises were loud

The snacking and chatting from a sizable crowd

The day will be merry, the night will be bright

With plenty of snacks on this cold winter night

Then when I get home, I’ll don my PJ’s quick

So we can see a good Christmas flick

Then after that, it is on to tradition

My brother and me must carry out our mission

The door will be closed, the room filled with heat

When we both watch The Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

Following that, it’s off to bed

Visions of CDs and games will dance in our heads

Looking at this, that’s all I have to say

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good day


Muse:  Christmas is tomorrow!  Eee!  I’m so excited!

I know!  Today is the day I can finally take a breather.  With it being Saturday, I don’t have to worry about going to work…

Muse:  All my things are done too.  It’s only a matter of time…I’m so excited!  Tee hee!

Wait. You’re a fairy? Why are you a fairy?

Muse:  I love this form! And it goes so well with Christmas. You know how that is. Tee hee!

Well, if it makes you happy, go ahead. What about being a child?  Are you going to abandon that for Christmas?

Muse:   Not necessarily.  I will still follow my 100-day cycle and be my younger self.  You might see me being a younger fairy for a couple days.  And I talked to the Dark Muse a little earlier.  She won’t bother me this year.  If she does, I told her that I would turn her into a gnat!

That’s good to hear.  Today is going to be exciting.  It will be a day to relax before the excitement tomorrow…

Muse:  I’m going to shower.  Be back in a bit!


Okay.  I need to shower myself.

My Muse is finally younger today!  She is five, almost six years old.  She is 2’11” tall and she weighs just 32 pounds.  The height of a two year old and the weight of a four year old.

Today’s high is going to be 24 degrees and the silver lining is watching the movie with my brother later tonight.  This day is going to be quite fun.  I have today and tomorrow off from work.  For today and tomorrow, I’ll be in vacation mode.  It will be a day of snacking, relaxing and visiting with the family.

To all of you who love having a couple days off, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Tee hee!  I can’t wait until tomorrow!  I wish I could open my presents early!  Eee!  I’m so excited!  Tee hee…
