Ain’t no rhyme or reason, no complicated meaning, ain’t no need to over think it, let’s go laughing. Life don’t go quite like you planned it. We try so hard to understand it. Irrefutable, indisputable, the fact is, psssh. It happens…”
I often wonder if Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush (Sugarland) know how many smiles they bring into people’s lives. For me, their music is so real, ya just can’t help but relate. I think maybe folks just like knowing that we are all far more alike than we are different.
My days start out a little different than most folks, mostly because I have a bad habit of sleeping when I am tired, and not sleeping when I am not tired. I can wake up at some pretty funky times so I am better off not trying to actually communicate with someone who has been awake and chirpy for hours if I still don’t have both eyes open yet.
Trying to communicate with me before that second eye is open can be pretty risky, but if I haven’t had my first cup of coffee yet, it can be dang near dangerous.
To put it simply, I wake up in a bit of a fog.
I bump into walls and grumble because I am certain someone must have moved it while I was sleeping. It usually takes me a good 30 minutes to an hour of quiet time to really prepare myself for the day ahead. It’s just who I am, ya know?
99.99% of the time, that isn’t an issue because the only one around to fuss with when I wake up is the cats, and they learned pretty quickly to stay out of Mama’s way if she is growling. (grin) It’s that .01% of the time that gets me into trouble.
It’s those times when both phones are ringing, and I can’t find either of them. If I am foolish enough to actually LOOK for them, I am likely gonna bang my head under the desk (where they probably fell) when I try to retrieve them.
You would think I would be smart enough to just leave the phones ringing, but no. I am gonna answer them and actually try to talk. Yeah, not usually one of my brighter moves. Within minutes, I am sure to have someone upset with me.
Worse yet? I have now forgotten my coffee, and in my lovely mood I decide to check emails and put out fires. Lord help anyone that left a fire for me by that point because I am sure to make it an inferno before I ever get around to putting it out.
Somewhere in the middle of all of this, I remember my coffee, and start thinking it would be a good idea for me step back for a bit. Go make coffee, chill.
Funny how just the smell of it begins to calm me. I love even the process of making it. It’s like art to me most times. Heck I have 3 or 4 different types of coffeemakers, but this time, I have waited too long and I want a cup RIGHT NOW! That’s about the moment I realize I am completely out of cream. Ugggggggggggggggggggggggggggggh!
Now, imagine finally getting ready to work and finding your computer connection is gone when they just got done fixing it very recently.
Whatcha gonna do?
By this time, all ya can do is crank up some Sugarland and laugh hysterically…..
Yeah, it happens…
