It's been one of those weeks, replete with ups and downs. Thankfully, I have one constant I can always lean on and count on to keep me on an even keel, no matter what. Otherwise, by today I'd probably have been hit in the head by falling bricks, knocked into the street, run over by a laundry truck, tossed to the gutter by the careless street sweeper playing Bingo on his BlackBerry, and eaten by dingos. Maybe a passing ambulance would pick up what's left before it spontaneously combusts. Maybe not.
Yeah. It hasn't exactly been a propitious week and now, nearing week's end, I find myself in a teensy bit of a state. But I'm not worried. No, not I! I may not have a degree in Zoology and maybe I'm not going clubbing with Dr. Doolittle tonight, but I am savvy enough to remember that music has charms to soothe a savage breast. I feel like jamming to some Pink Floyd at top volume, but that would be unseemly. There are, after all, other people with delicate sensibilities around. Mmm-hmm, sure. So, I'll give this a go and see how quickly it can calm me. I don't have a stop-watch, but I'll know. Any little thing I can do to refresh my equanimity, I'm all for it. Easter is coming, you know. I must be ready for the annual Great Peeps Hunt.
We have Words Gone Wild today, and here's what we're going to do with them. You are requested to use them in a very, very short little story. Have fun with it and, I beg of you, make me laugh.
