Frozen Fishsticks!

Rating: 4.8
Please laugh with me (not AT)
As I share my morning adventure with you

Ok...so
Suffice to say...
I have a slight problem with punctuality
(allright...a very bad problem! !)
It isn't that I intend on being late..
It's just that I'm easily distracted
And before I know it...
LOOK AT THE TIME! ! !

So this morning...
Well...I was fartin' around as usual...
Sleep later...morning coffee...check emails...
All that stuff and a few other things
Which we need not get into here!

Now...
I know I have a deadline...
Gotta pick up small boy from the bus
10: 50 sharp!

I know this...
And with all my heart
I will be there...
Come hell or high water!
I couldn't bare to think of his confused little face
If one day I didn't show up on time

So...
What possessed me...
At 10: 33...
To think that I had time to squeeze in...
A shower? ? ! !

Well...
At least I know now...
It is indeed possible
For me to take a 5 minute shower!

It's all the other stuff
That chews up time!
So, as I hop out of the shower
I think to myself...
What part of my routine...
Can I skip?

Drying off?
Nope...absolutely necessary...
Unless I intend to become a human posicle (again)
Combing hair?
Not recommended...
Unless I want to scare the living daylights
Out of my neighbours!

Drying hair?
Hmmm...
-16 degrees celcius!
Hahaha! ! !
It'll be my penance
For procrastinating!

Are there articles of clothing...
That I can get away without wearing?
Ummm...
No!
See the first two reasons above...
Too cold...and I don't want to scare my neighbours!

Now 10: 45....
AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH! ! !

Hair quickly combed...
Skip brushing teeth...
Throw on clothes while running to front door...
(don't laugh! ! ! It can be done!)
Socks? yes or no? ?
Better put em on...
Can't stand cold feet!

Pants zipped?
Yes...thank goodness!

Boots...coat...scarfe...gloves...hat! !
Hat!
Hahahahaha! ! !
Throw 'em on quickly...
Times a tickin!

10: 48!
Out the door...
run like mad!

Whew! !
Just in time...
I see that big yellow monster coming down the street...
And...sigh...there he is!
All smiles and happy to see me!
: -)

As he gets off the bus and we greet each other...
He looks at me oddly...
Then gently reaches up toward me face...

'Mommy? ?
Why is your hair frozen? ? '

'Let's just get home buddy...
Before my eyelashes stick together too! '

Now I know how frozen fishsticks feel!
