Day 17: Inside My Head

Whataburger

 

Inner Voice: Are you going to sit there all day or get up and get moving?
Me: Hush, I am trying to get some work done.
Inner Voice: Really? Why are you browsing music on You Tube then?

Inner Voice: You are running out of time here.
Me: I am waiting for it to cool off.
Inner Voice: You live in Texas. It ‘aint gonna happen.
Me: I’m going. I’m going.
Inner Voice: How many times are you going to tie your shoes.
Me: I’m trying to get them just right.
Inner voice: What are you waiting on now?
Me: I need to charge my phone.

An hour later…

Inner Voice: Now what is the hold up?
Me: I forgot it is Saturday. The gym closes in 10 minutes.
Inner Voice: And?
Me: It’s still hot out dang it!
Inner Voice: I thought you said you wanted it bad enough.
Me: Shut up.

30 minutes of silence…

Inner Voice: Can you hear me now?
Me: Oh for crying out loud. Even God took a day off!
Inner Voice: He was done with his work. You aren’t.
Me: [unintelligible muttering]

10 minutes later walking out the door…

Inner Voice: Turn left.
Me: Oh heck no, I aint going up those hills.
Inner Voice: Hey you are the one that decided to eat that big lunch!
Me: It’s all about choices.
Inner Voice: You chose to live. Now turn left, dork!
Me: [unintelligible muttering again]

Inner Voice: Stop looking at Whataburger.
Me: I’m not.
Inner Voice: There is drool dripping down your chin.

20 minutes pass…

Inner Voice: Hey! Turn on that new Thomas Rhett song.
Me: You don’t get to choose my music.
Inner Voice: Unless you plan to still be walking at midnight, I am choosing your music.
Me: You suck.

Pace picks up considerably and my thoughts go silent as the endorphins kick in and I get lost in the music.

Inner Voice: Hey, dork!
Me: Now what?
Inner Voice: You’re done.
Me: Really?
Inner Voice: Stop dancing on the sidewalk. No really, STOP!

    It’s fine to argue with yourself sometimes.
    The scary part is when you lose the argument 😉
    Good job!

    Well written. I can relate to that.

    Just try not to think too loudly Cricket as the echo may scare you 😉
