Good Evening & Happy Saturday to All!!!
First off, this is not going to be normal posts by any stretch of the imagination, for which you can tell by said caption above. It has been 24 hours since I asked a fellow blogger Sketches by Nitesh how do I go about submitting some of my writing to a group known as The Perfect Imperfect Bunch? I trusted asking him because I value his writing and sketches to the utmost!
It was around midnight last night when I received an email back from Nitesh asking me if I was serious, naturally, I replied yes!!!! He then responded, “Can you submit something now?” With a chuckle, I responded, “I had just peeled back the covers and took my medication nearly 45 minutes earlier, and that if I even attempted to submit something at this point, it would look as if a third grader had handed in a horrible homework assignment.” – “No kidding, when I take my meds, I’m a bit on the loopy spectrum of things.” LOL!!! 🙂
I awoke this morning to my roommate’s dog pawing at the bedroom door. “Pinky” obviously needed to release the bladder, amongst the other orifice. I rolled out of bed, tied my hair in a knot, dressed as fast as possible, and stumbled my way down the stairs. The poor dog was pacing by the front door awaiting my arrival. I glanced into the living room to see my roommate “JK” sleeping on the couch. (Remember, I told you a couple days back she had developed food poisoning, well after seeing a doctor yesterday, it turns out she developed a stomach virus of some sorts). “I know, I’m getting off track here, sorry.”
After walking Pinky all over creation for over a half hour to find the perfect spot to do number 1 twice and number 2. All this time of finding said perfect grounds, I was thinking about what I was going to submit to The Perfect Imperfect Bunch. The prompt was “Writing.” Good Lord, I could have gone in several directions, so my mind was spinning a web of what and how to go about this submission.
I fed Pinky and the cat “Kady” and proceeded to prepare coffee. “If I don’t have caffeine running through my veins, I may as well hang it up, and go back to bed.” However, I had to consume large quantities of java before I could do anything. I then woke up the sickly one on the couch, and she bounced up stating she felt so much better!!! “Yippy!” We sat and spoke as we normally do before the day kicks in gear, and I told her that I had to go upstairs to write.
When I entered my bedroom and uncovered Peanut (Parrot), I then glanced over at the fish tank. There was “Lemonade” floating, yet attached to a plant. “Something you don’t see that often.” Never the less, I didn’t have time for this. I jumped in the shower and got ready for my day. “All the while, still thinking of what I wanted to submit.”
I finally sat my ass down and looked for the email that Nitesh said he would send to me. I simply couldn’t find it. As I went back to our original email and misread the information he provided. I ended up submitting my “Writings” if you will, in his comment section. “A senior moment for sure.” He corrected me, and after “MANY” emails back & forth, I finally submitted my piece.
“A special shout out to Sketches by Nitesh I can not Thank you enough for all the patience you had given me between last night and this afternoon. You are one hell of a man to put up with me. If it weren’t for all your help, I would not have been able to enter my submission onto “The Perfect Imperfect Bunch.”
After all this, I finally did a memorial service for poor “Lemonade” by proceeding to flush him away to the Gods. Then spent two hours cleaning out the tank thoroughly. I’m not going to get a simple little fish again. Tomorrow, I plan on going back to Pet Smart to get a tough Beta. I can’t kill them. I have had several in the past, and they lived a full life. “So, I think the new Beta might have a good chance.” LOL!!!
Alright, my friends, it is time for me to close for now. It’s been a long day and I haven’t eaten a damn thing all day. I hope you have a wonderful evening.
Take Care & God Bless!
