Me & My Muse – Day 2303: Work Sweet Work

Having finished work today, I do have to admit.  It feels great to be back.

I got a whole lot done and I was able to catch up pretty quickly.  With work done, I will probably take it easy for the rest of the day.  Maybe even start on my WDW recap…

In the realm of the unreal, I still…can’t see anything.  What is going on?

Hello?  Hello?  Wake up, sleepyhead!  Wake up!

Huh?  Who said that?

*wakes up in a bed in a treehouse, and watches a flash of light bounce up and down near the bed*

???: You’re finally awake!  You slept long enough!

*wipes sleep out of eyes, stretches, and yawns*

Huh?  My voice!  I sound like…a child!

???:  Of course you are!  The Great Deku Tree told me to find a boy without a fairy

Okay.  I get it.  I’m supposed to be the stand-in for Link.  So that would make you Navi, right?

Navi:  Yes!  I was about to introduce myself but…that won’t be necessary now!  The Great Deku Tree…he…

I know.  He senses that something bad is going to happen.  I need to find a shield and sword and then gather the three spiritual stones to open the door of time.  Please spare me the long and profound speech…

Navi:  *sigh*  He already told me that you already knew everything that I was about to tell you.  This…is crazy!  It’s almost like you experienced all this before!

I kind of did, but I’ll save that discussion for another day.  Now, I’m going to get enough rupees to buy a shield.

Navi:  Regardless of your foreknowledge, I will accompany you!

Go ahead.  This journey should be a slam dunk…I’m still getting used to this voice.  How old was young Link in the game?  Nine?  Heck!  At this age, I didn’t even write The Brick Building yet!  I wrote that when I was ten…Anyway, moving on…

*exits treehouse and begins lifting up bushes and pots that mysteriously respawn when I enter and exit buildings around the Kokiri Forest*

There.  I’m going to buy my shield and call it an entry.  There’s not much to see here.  I’m going to speak to a Kokiri named Mido and tell him to get out of the way so that I can find a sword.  I will then speak to the Great Deku Tree and complete a dungeon inside of him to get the first spiritual stone:  The Kokiri Emerald.

Time to begin my quest!

Today’s high is going to be 57 degrees and the silver lining is getting a lot of stuff done today.

To those of you who like productive Mondays, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I had another dream.  Kyle woke up in the Kokiri Forest!  He escaped the Second Calamity in the far future.  He should be on his way soon…

Impa:  But the Gerudo man…Ganondorf…He has a charming demeanor, but I sense some craftiness in him.  We should depart from the castle soon…

Muse:  We will not until Kyle arrives.  I dreamt of his arrival and I dreamt of our escape!  We do not leave until after Kyle’s visit!
