Me & My Muse – Day 1686: Shifting to Sunday

Sunday is here again.  To cut to the chase, not much is going on today.  Just a typical day of respite before the next work week begins.  With that, I will conclude this entry early.

My Muse is six and a half years old today. She is 3’0.5″ tall and she weighs 35 pounds. The height of a three year old and the weight of a four year old.

Today’s high is going to be 40 degrees and the silver lining is having one more day to unwind.

To those of you who are enjoying this Sunday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Child Muse:  Can we watch it one more time, please?

Muse:  Okay.  After that, it’s dinner time.  Your mom will want you to come and eat.

Child Muse:  I will.  Start the movie!

Muse:  Here we go…

*Muse begins the movie Frozen, with Child Muse watching with her Anna and Elsa dolls*


Me & My Muse – Day 1685: Saturday Stuff

For starters, getting my taxes done is one of the things that I want to get done today.

For this very reason, I am going to cut this one short today.

My Muse is six, almost seven years old today.  She is 3’0″ tall and she weighs 34 pounds. The height of a three year old and the weight of a two year old.

Today’s high is going to be 35 degrees and the silver lining is being able to get my taxes done.

To those of you who like to file taxes early, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Child Muse:  That’s not how the dad sounds!  Let me show you!

Muse:  Okay.  How does he sound?

*Child Muse grabs Ken doll from Muse and holds him up, making a sudden gasp*

Child Muse:  Uh…Hang on.  I gotta go!

*Child Muse throws down Ken doll and glances toward bathroom door, which seems far away*

Child Muse:  I’m not going to make it!

*Child Muse makes toilet appear right in front of her, pulls down her pants and sits on it*

Child Muse:  Phew!

Muse:  You made it!

Child Muse:  Sorry.  I usually go in the bathroom.  My mom says that it’s a thing called “privacy”.

Muse:  Here…

*Muse makes a wall appear around child Muse and makes a door appear on one of the walls*

Child Muse:  Thank you!  I’ll let you know when I’m finished!

Muse:  Okay!  Take your time!

Me & My Muse – Day 1684: Friday Short

And would you look at the time!  I am overdue for my weekly ritual of celebrating Friday.  I am also tired and ready to unwind from a long week of work.

My Muse is seven years old today.  She is 3’1.5″ tall and she weighs 38 pounds. The height of a three year old and the weight of a five year old.

Today’s high is going to be 30 degrees and the silver lining is it finally being Friday.

To those of you who are glad that the week is over, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Child Muse:  School was fun today!  For Science class, I went outside and made it snow.  Then we learned about snow.  It was fun…

Muse:  I’m glad you learned a lot!

Child Muse:  Oh!  I need to read more of my book for English!  It needs to be read by Monday.  I better get started on it…

Me & My Muse – Day 1683: Singled Out…

I will have to admit.  Last night was pretty fun.  At Genji, me and my Muse each ordered two orders of sushi.  Of course, I got my usual, which was the Cupid Roll.  My other one was the Hot Jamaican Roll.  My Muse also got a Cupid Roll with a Spicy Tuna Roll.

Along with the Sushi, we each got a dinner.  Sparing no expense, I went all out.  I got the Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail.  She, of course, got the same thing.  The chef was pretty funny and quite enjoyable to listen to.  He made jokes about my Muse, which she found ridiculous.

After the dinner, I went to Meijer and got her a card and the biggest box of chocolate that I could find. Sure, it cost me $20, but she was worth it.  When I was done shopping, she took care of hers.  We then went home.

At home, we signed our cards and exchanged them.  I opened hers and she opened mine.  I then got out the big heart-shaped box of chocolates.  She, of course, had to outdo me with an even BIGGER box, with a bouquet of roses.

After that, we went to the bedroom, and we…kissed.  That’s all we did.  The clothes remained on, as I vow to remain pure through my wedding day.  This includes fictional women.

Last night was fun.  Yes, it was a date.  But a purely fictional one.  If anything, a simulation of what I can expect in the future.  Getting to reality, I am single, and fortunately there is a day to celebrate that.  That day is today.  And to all you couples out there, you’re not invited.  For Single’s Awareness Day, it’s SINGLES only.  Not couples.  Your day was yesterday.  Sorry.


Muse:  Last night was fun, even though it was purely fictional.

It was quite enjoyable.  At least I wasn’t alone.

Muse:  And neither was I.  Besides.  I’m getting you ready for the real thing.  When “she” comes along, won’t you want to be ready?

Indeed I would.  There is no substitute for the real thing, except for you, of course.

Muse:  And I’m the perfect substitute.  One that is deeply in love with you.

But I am still single, since Intangibles don’t count.  Happy Single’s Awareness Day…

Muse:  Technically, they don’t.  I know.  Technically, I too am single, since I don’t have another Intangible to be with…But wasn’t last night fun?  We should go on  more dates…

Maybe another time.  But today, I need to get ready.  I work a shift this morning…

Muse:  I’ll let you do that.  Get ready, then!

I will.  But I need to end this, first.

Muse:  I’ll let you.  Time for a shower!


Here’s today in a nutshell.  This morning, I work a morning shift at Little Caesars from 8 to whenever dough is finished.  It’s usually between 1 and 2.  It shouldn’t be too long either way.

My Muse is four and a half years old today. She is 2’10.5″ tall and she weighs 31 pounds. The height of a two year old and the weight of a three year old.

Today’s high is going be be 41 degrees and the silver lining is enjoying the gift of singleness.

To those of you who are still single like me, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I got to finish showering…

*Child Muse peeks her face into the shower curtain*

Child Muse:  Hi!

Muse:  Let me guess…You can’t sleep?

Child Muse:  Yeah.  I also can’t use the potty…

*Child Muse holds up a soaked diaper*

Muse:  That was at night.  You couldn’t hold it while you were sleeping.  Let’s try again during the day, okay!

Child Muse:  Okay!

Muse:  Can you please let me finish my shower?  I’ll go to your room shortly.

Child Muse:  Okay!

*Child Muse returns to her room*

Child Muse: I can’t make it…

*Child Muse flashes and a new diaper appears on her*

Me & My Muse – Day 1682: Happy Hallmark Day…

Once again, it’s that time of year.  The day where romantic couples can celebrate the love that they have for each other.  And that celebration is reveled in reading mushy cards, chewing conversation hearts and chocolates and dining at an expensive restaurant.

Despite this holiday being based off of a priest named Saint Valentine, this is a greeting card day.  A cash cow for Hallmark and one of their most profitable days, besides Christmas.  According to some figures that I have heard, Americans have spent $20 billion on Valentine’s Day.  If I am the Scrooge of Valentine’s Day, then bah humbug!

For today, I’m going to try to make some one happy.  All I need to do now is to figure out who I would…


Muse:  Would you be my Valentine?

As cliché as it is, sure.  Is this going to be another date like last year?

Muse:  It is.  I really want a date and there is no one that I can find who is suitable.

What?!  ME date someone who is totally imaginary?  Are you out of your mind?  Granted, I really enjoyed it last year, but again?!

Muse:  Yes again.  I really enjoyed our date from last year and I would like to do this again.  Just think about it.  It would be better to date someone imaginary than no one at all.  After all, this day is quite lonely for those who can’t find dates…

You’re just trying to make me feel better.

Muse:  That, and I have already shared my undying affection for you.  And you said it yourself.  You want to make others happy on this day, right?  Can we PLEASE go on a date?  Maybe this will persuade you.


Wow.  Okay.  I’m convinced.  Where to, Sadie Hawkins?

Muse:  We could go to Genji’s.  I love that place.

I do too, but it will be packed on a night like tonight.  And if we’re going, we need to make reservations NOW.

Muse:  Done!  I already have them set up for 6:30.

Also…oh no…

Muse:  What?

If you’re my Valentine, I didn’t get you anything for Valentine’s Day.  No card, roses or chocolates.  Nothing.

Muse:  That’s okay.  You can buy them after dinner.  I have my rose for you, but I still have to get the card.  We can go in separate rooms to sign them.

Sounds like a plan.  But this is a joke, right?

Muse:  It’s not.  I’m serious.  I WANT a date!  I am not sitting home alone on this day.  Can you please take me seriously?  This is a real date.

A real date with a fake person.  Okay.

Muse:  What was that?  At this point, I would be angry.  But I love you too much!


Whoa.  You kiss way better than any real person ever could.

Muse:  Trust me.  A real kiss from a real girl will be better than this.  But this will have to do for now…When are you picking me up?

Well, I work today this year, but get off in the afternoon.  How about six o’ clock like last year?

Muse:  Six will work. I’ll be reading a romance novel in the meantime.  See you at six!


Well, that was interesting.  At least I won’t be alone later on.  Today, I’ll be working my morning shift.  A little later, I’ll be going on a “date” with my Muse.  I can’t believe that I just said that.  Granted, it will be weird, but it will keep my sanity intact.

My Muse is eight and a half years old today.  She was 3’2.5″ tall and she weighs 43 pounds.  The height of a four year old and the weight of a six year old.

Today’s high is going to be 42 degrees and the silver lining will be going on a date with my Muse.

To those of you lovebirds who are perfectly content with sharing your love with the world, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Oh, I’m so glad that he said yes!  I am determined to fill that void that he has in that lonely heart of his.  Time to put on the best clothes that I own and the best perfume!  His eyes will melt when he sees me next…Happy Valentine’s Day, Kyle!  I promise you that I will make it a good one.

Child Muse:  What are you doing?

Muse:  Are you not tired again?

Child Muse:  Yes.  I can’t sleep…You’re all dressed up and you look pretty.  Are you going on a date?

Muse:  Yes.

Child Muse:  I know about dates.  My mommy and daddy go on them all the time!  Then I get a babysitter…

Muse:  Okay.  Please let me finish getting ready…

Child Muse:  Why is your face red?  Oooh!  Muse is in looove!

Me & My Muse – Day 1681: Mardi Gras and Friend Meeting Tonight…

Once again, this entry’s going to be short.

Today is Mardi Gras.  In addition to that, I will be working my morning shift.  When that is over, I will be going to my friend’s house tonight.

My Muse is six and a half years old today.  She is 3’0.5″ tall and she weighs 35 pounds. The height of a three year old and the weight of a four year old.

Today’s high is going to be 28 degrees and the silver lining is enjoying the extra food today.

To those of you who love to pile away the calories on Fat Tuesday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I’m not sparing any calories today!  Time for another two paczki….

Child Muse:  What’s a paczki?

Muse:  It’s a Polish donut, dear.  Shouldn’t you be sleeping?

*Child Muse flashes brightly*

Child Muse:  I’m not tired!  Can I have one?

Muse;  We should ask your mom first…

Child Muse:  Thanks!

*a paczek appears in Child Muse’s hand and she eats it*

Child Muse:  Strawberry!  Mmm…Thanks!  Tee hee!

Muse:  *sigh*  (Sometimes, I think that a child shouldn’t have a One Privilege…)

Child Muse:  I heard that!  Tee hee!

Me & My Muse – Day 1680: Monday Mishap

More like Saturday mishap.  Here’s what happened.

When I came in to work this morning, there was only one tray of dough in the walk-in.  I come to find out from my supervisor that the north store’s walk-in stopped working Saturday night and that their store was closed all day yesterday as a result.

Well, when you’re the only store in town, you’re clearly going to be a lot busier.  This is what happened yesterday.  I started dough immediately and got at least four batches made.  Enough for us to at least get through lunch.

When lunch came, it came like a storm.  There was a lot of food made already but I was still worried about running out.  Fortunately, we didn’t and I was able to continue.

This shouldn’t affect us tomorrow that much since the walk-in at the other store is supposed to be fixed today.

With Fat Tuesday being tomorrow, I bought four kinds of paczki.  Raspberry, Lemon, Strawberry and Bavarian Creme. I also bought some other things that I needed for food.

With that, I am now going to relax…


Muse:  This playground universe is too small! I’m putting it inside my Teeheeverse!  Tee hee!

*Muse flashes brightly and transforms entire universe*

Now something wonderful has just happened.  The wonderful princess is back!  I am ready to obey her every command.  All hail Muse!  Princess of the Teeheeverse!

Universe Muse:  Enough!  I have had enough of this brat’s insolence.  With the master key, my power’s far exceed hers.  Come out of her at once, and stay out!

*Dark Muse exits Muse*

Dark Muse:  Huh?  Why?  I was having so much fun!  Tee hee!

Universe Muse:  You are torturing this poor child! By inhabiting her body, you are delaying her development!  This development is critical if she is to thrive as an adult.  Go back to your Teeheeverse!

Dark Muse:  And what if I don’t?

Universe Muse:  I have the authority to erase your entire existence, along with your Teeheeverse.  Don’t try my patience.  I will do this without hesitation.

Dark Muse:  Okay!  Fine!  I’ll be a good girl!  (When can I be in another fun home like that?)

Universe Muse:  You are quite spoiled, aren’t you?  Isn’t that body of yours already a home?  A bad idea inhabiting a Muse is all you are!

Dark Muse:  I know! But I get bored with this home!  Fine!  I’ll go back to my Teeheeverse!  Guess I’ll make my own homes there.  Tee hee!

Universe Muse:  You’re forgetting something.

Dark Muse:  What?

Universe Muse:  You know what!  A little bit of yourself is still inside her.  Get it out!

Dark Muse: Fine!  I was hoping that I could grow inside her and take over again!  Tee hee!  You’re so boring!

*Dark Muse’s essence exits Muse and goes back inside herself*

Dark Muse:  I’ll be back later!  Tee hee!

*Dark Muse returns to Teeheeverse*

Universe Muse:  Everything is back to normal and the Teeheeverse is locked in a dimension that she can never escape from!

Muse:  Wow!  What happened?  You look like my mommy!

Universe Muse:  I watch over everything.  You were under the Dark Muse’s spell.  I had to return you to normal…

Whoa…What just happened?

Universe Muse:  I freed you and the entire universe from the Dark Muse’s spell.

Well thanks!

Muse:  What’s happening?  My hands look like night lights!

Universe Muse:  It’s your One Privilege, child.  Use it wisely…

Muse:  Oh, I will!  I think I’ll make an older me!

*Muse generates an adult Muse*

Muse:  Oh thanks!  Did you do that?

Child Muse:  I did!  Can we go outside and play in the snow?  I wanna make some snowmen and snow angels!

Muse:  We can can do that.  Let’s get you bundled up first.

Child Muse:  Oh!  *Child Muse presses her hands to her side*  I gotta go potty!

Muse:  You do?  Let’s hurry!  I’ll talk to you later, Kyle!

*Muse grabs Child Muse and both vanish in a beam of light*

Thanks for getting the story back to normal.

Universe Muse:  Anytime, Kyle.  What else could you do if you were under her control?

Well, that’s where you come in.  I could almost say that you’re an extension of my One Privilege.

Universe Muse:  I am.  I will talk to you later.  Farewell!

*Universe Muse vanishes in a powerful beam of light*

Well, everything’s back to normal again, so I will just take it easy now.

My Muse is five years old today.  She is 2’11.5″ tall and she weighs 33 pounds. The height of a three year old and the weight of a four year old.

Today’s high is going to be 24 degrees and the silver lining is being done with Monday.

To those of you who have dealt with work related issues before, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

*toilet flushes*

Muse:  Are you done?

*door opens and Child Muse steps out*

Child Muse: Yup!

Muse:  Let’s get you bundled up.

*Child Muse flashes and winter clothes appear on her*

Child Muse: You mean like this?

Muse:  Yes!  You’re already bundled up…

Child Muse:  *sigh* You’re taking too long!

*Child Muse flashes again, making winter clothes appear on Muse*

Muse:  Wow.  We match!

Child Muse:  Uh huh!  Let’s go!

*Muse and Child Muse run outside, into the deep snow*
