If I had control of my own universe, of course with the blessings and guidance of the ONE and only, I’d:
-Go back to school and become a Vet Tech.
-Quit my day job and stay at home writing in my office or in the neighbourhood Starbucks
-Drink endless amounts of coffee and mocha thingys while writing at Starbucks
-Hit the local library to write with water bottle in tow when the money runs low or I develop heart palpitations from the coffee (which ever comes first).
-Practice four to six hours on my spinet then relax in smug satisfaction knowing, come Sunday my teacher would not have one word of criticism.
-Sip Cabernet while munching on Weight Watchers cheese after lessons on Sunday in celebration of my teacher’s endless praise.
-Read the entire New York Times weekender and the advertisements and clip out the coupons.
-Become a coupon fanatic and turn fifty dollars of groceries into twenty from all the coupon savings and the two for one’rs.
-Attempt to braid my hair and paint my toenails hot pink and not necessarily in that order.
-Give up Facebook…well…
-Spend less time on Facebook.
-Experiment with cooking.
-Experiment with cooking using the twenty dollars’ worth of groceries from my savings.
-Attend all the freebee things in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. Not Staten Island, too far a drive.
-Daydream with no time limit, sleep all day and party like a rock star at night as long as I’m in bed by nine and up at five.
-Groom the boys the old fashion way.
-Learn to bandage the bites from the boys received during grooming.
This is what runs through my brain when I’m stuck in a rut.
