Have you ever had a day......

When you wake up in the morning
And you automatically know
That your WHOLE day will be the opposite
Of what you typically experience?


You’re reading on the couch at 6:15 am.
You lift your head as a big, fat, brown MOUSE runs across the floor
Under the closet door……..

Your DOG
  • Who barks constantly
  • All the time
  • At anything else
  • I mean
  • EVERYTHING else
Lifts her head
And watches the mouse scurry across the floor
Then she proceeds to lay her head
BACK down on the couch
As if nothing has even happened

Your SON
  • Who actually left UNOPENED presents
  • Under the tree on Christmas morning
  • To run outside with a pellet gun
  • To kill a harmless squirrel
  • crossing through his yard
Lifts his head off the pillow
After you scream at him to “wake up”
Looks you in the eye
And says, “MOM. Mice live in houses.”
And rolls over and falls back asleep
