I thought she’d hang for just a bit then be gone. I told her we would never work and I needed her to go.
I made it through the movie (Jason Bourne was great) but on the way home she showed up and started poking at my eye, plucking me in the forehead and by the time I hit the sheets she had my brain in a figure four headlock squishing blood from my temples.
I took some pills to ease the soreness and hopefully knock her out. The pills make me groggy so I figured I’d be late in the morning. I managed to wake on time, not a hard task when she was laying next to me like “mawnin! You thought I was gone! “I won’t be ignored!”
I made it to work by 7:15.
Immediately started getting everyone else what they needed. Immediately addressing everyone else’s concerns and carefully avoiding any situation which may have called for me to say “sure, no problem” but would have had me inadvertently scream “f$&k you mo$&erf$&;r” at the slightest provocation.
I stayed in my office working most the day. Overhead light bullying me like a big brother with his finger near touching your eyelash.
“I’m not touching you, I’m not touching you, I’m not touching you..” “MOMMY! LIGHT WONT LEAVE ME ALONE!” 😩
“Light leave your sister alone!”😡
Slowly raises finger to eyelash.
“I’m not touching you…”😎
Oh sweet Jesus what time is it???
Let’s just say I may have filled out a PO for a chainsaw, shovel, a plastic bag, duct tape, some lye and concrete from Home Depot…
Alas the day drew nye and I was able to leave like a bolt of lightening on a stormy day.
Home now properly sedated waiting for the bliss of numbness to remove the dumbness of the day.
Fade away fair maiden fade away…
