Me & My Muse – Day 2086: Car Wash

There’s nothing like a good car wash after a satisfying day of work.

With that done, I’m going to wind down now.  My 4:00 a.m. wake up schedule is taking its toll on me…


Muse:  You.  Kyle!

Me?  Is that how you talk to me?  I guess that’s how you talk to me when you’re evil, I guess…

Muse:  Which would you rather do?  Would you rather work on my castle for eternity or be my slave for eternity?

I guess I would pick slave, since that manual labor would be fatal…

Muse:  Excellent choice!  And since you’re my slave now, you don’t have to stay in that cramped cell!

So now what?  I’m your “slave”.  What does Supreme Mistress Muse want?

Muse:  Wonderful of you to ask!  I have this list that I want you to complete…TODAY!  And quit patronizing me or I may change my mind!

*list unfurls halfway across the room*

It’s that long?  I’ll never be able to finish that!

Muse:  Not at that size!  Hold on…

*Muse flashes, which makes me grow exponentially*

Wow…So this is what it’s like to be bigger than the universe…I guess I’m in your throne room now…

Muse:  What are you waiting for?  Work on the list!  I’m not paying you to stand around!

You’re actually not paying me at all!

Muse:  Exactly!  Get back to work before I make you pay me!

*Muse gets off of throne*

Muse:  I’ll be back at the end of the day.  Make sure the list is done!

Yes, your highness…

*Muse vanishes in a cloud of smoke*

This list is very long.  I’ll be lucky if I get half of this done…

Half of that list is already done!

Is that you, Creator?  Thanks!

She is not going to rule over you.  At the right time, I will get you out…

Um, why can’t you get me out now?

Now what kind of story would that be if I just freed you right away?  These arcs are very expensive, you know!

Right!  Let’s get our money’s worth!

Keep working!  You should be able to finish with my help!

Okay.  Next on the list…her laundry.  I don’t know.  She’s not a brat anymore.  But her being a pure evil adult is just as annoying…

Today’s high is going to be 41 degrees and the silver lining is a clean car and a promotion!  Yay!  I don’t have to build her castle now!

To those of you who wish that you were her slave, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I changed my mind!  At the end of the day, I’m throwing him back in the cell!  Ha ha ha!

Not if I have anything to do about it…
