I woke this morning to the dog licking my face demanding her latte (yes my dog LOVES lattes, caps and the occasional Italian Macchiato!…..Why do you think she looks waaaay too young for a 13 years old?! It’s the good coffee of course.
As I was now having my coffee with the dog, contemplating an ‘easier’ day, the fuzzy cute little tiny bird that lives in my head chirped in its tranquil little voice!
“Treat yourself today! Take it a little easier”.
I smiled…sighed and said “ok”.
The tiny fuzzy bird ‘of wisdom’ in my head_ yes it’s quite tiny at times, its continual survival surprises me_ is now flying on a mission to fetch breakfast, thinking it had convinced me to take it easy today and to just…recline and laze the day away…
The ‘other’ _much bigger in size_ creature that lives in my head, a red silly fox, gestured at the bird, while rubbing its chin…and muttering
“Ugh!!! How pathetically impulsive!!…..Bird sees a disgusting slimy wiggly..thing! And immediately loses its mind! pitiful!!!”
Then as if it accidentally just realized I’m there..I heard it say “heeeeeey……..well you’re looking relaxed!😁..how’s it going this morning?!”
I responded “well fox, I am taking it easy today! I’m going to just..chill!”
As I reclined back into my chair, the ‘annoying complaisant worm-breath’ little bird flew back into the room heading to settle again into my head, and the fox?! Ate it!!!!
So I had to get busy, silly, and mischievous! And I set out to sing out loud, while chopping out wood in the forest..scaring all the squirrels, the birds, the wolf and the random bear..away
