The Accident, Short Fiction

The Accident

Brian looked up from the busted watermelon into the smoky,

amused gaze of a gorgeous redhead.

‘I’m Serena’.

They fell in love.

Manic Mondays are becoming an ending. At least for the past couple of Mondays. An ending to the bone-wearying ennui that sets in on Fridays! This too shall pass.

Saw The Lone Ranger Friday with Bob and Falon. We scarfed a pizza, went to the movie and scarfed popcorn and laughed. Lucky to have entertainers, not so lucky to be scalped of dollars to see them. I guess I always go back to the question of how much one person, one family really needs to live comfortably. Is there a study? I must look for one..

At any rate, it was fun and distracting and I heart Johnny Dep. He could park his shoes under my bed anytime…Don’t tell Bob.

Falon and I seem to be on a personal pampering quest. In the past three weeks we’ve done hair, visited the Hot Springs baths, and, just Saturday, had nails done. I’m looking forward to the pedicure and the  massage! Guess we’ll have to put all this on weekly rotation! Do we deserve it? Hell Yeah! And so does every other multi-tasking working woman out there! Less grocery shopping, more pampering! That’s the new mantra!

One final note for this manic Monday: I’ve added a new work file and labeled it SYNTD for SHIT YOU NEED TO DO.

I almost emptied it today. Go Me!

  1. Oh yeah, I need a SYNTD file or two or . . . Great idea & wonderful accomplishment getting half-way through it! I can only dream. 😉 LUV it that mom & daughter are taking some self-LUV time together — you both need it. 🙂

    1. We must keep our SYNTD files updated! The technician at the nail shop asked if we were sisters. Wooowhooo…. Made my day! How are things in your beautiful glass work going?

      1. Oooh, yeah, I feel the soul sisterhood! Must be the sharp wit, eh? Now, it’s taken me so long to reply that I know you’ll understand when I say [with a bit of a British accent]:

        “I’m late, I’m late for
        A very important date.
        No time to say hello, good-bye,
        I’m late, I’m late, I’m late
        I’m late and when I wave,
        I lose the time I save.
        My fuzzy ears and whiskers
        Took me too much time to shave.
        I run and then I hop, hop, hop,
        I wish that I could fly.
        There’s danger if I dare to
        Stop and here’s a reason why:
        I’m over-due, I’m in a rabbit stew.
        Can’t even say good-bye,
        hello, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.” 😉

        And I’m STILL working on a post at Dawne Design to update you on what I’ve been working on! Thanks to you & your nail technician for a needed lift. 🙂

      2. I love it! I’ve quoted those lyrics more than once as I slammed a door behind me!
