Writing 101, day one: Unlock your mind
I got ready to pick up my prescription from the pharmacy. I was out of the house in a jiffy, as I turned the corner of my house to get to the bus stop , I saw the bus whizzing by me. Thirty minutes , I had to wait for the next one, to get the time moving I went to the next stop . I noticed I had twenty two more minutes to kill, I came back to my stop, still there was more time left.
I was frustrated but chose to wait the ten minutes I was required to. The bus came I got on and after five minutes I was in front of the pharmacy. I walked in picked up my medicine. I turned around and started walking to the bus stop to get on the bus and get home. I checked my watch and realized I didn’t have to walk so fast to get to the stop for the bus. There was ten minutes left for the bus to arrive. The bus came late. Sometimes I feel the hands of the clock refuses to move when I want it to.
Finally I saw the bus coming, I was the first to get on. The anxiety of waiting took a toll on my mind I was exhausted when I got home.
The felines were sleeping sound, I tried to wake them up, they were not in a mood, “come on Gabriel, Raphael wake up and eat your lunch,” they didn’t care.
I turned on my computer to send an email, I got the most tiresome message,”sorry we cannot connect to the internet try again later.”
I went to the kitchen and made a sandwich for me. “This was my day, tell me if yours was better.”
These sort of days make you appreciate something or the other. At the very least you will say “thank God today is over” 🙂
Yes you are right, I did feel thank God this day is over. 🙂
Thank you for sharing this with us. I always like your stories, and especially when Gabriel and Raphael figure in them.
All good wishes,
Thank you. 🙂
