I decided to do the Daily Prompt from WordPress today. The challenge was to think of a word, do a Google image search on it and then write about the 11th image that came up. Needless to say by the time I finished reading the challenge I had thought of several words and I was biased.
What to do? Well, I enlisted the help of Idaho to give me a word. Knowing full well it could be a disaster, I sent him a text to ask for the first word that came to his mind…..fail, didn’t dare use that one………I asked for a second one, his word was ‘sunshine’. I’m not sure if he’s been drinking at work today because that was a bit of an odd choice but I wasn’t about to ask for a third one so I’m going with sunshine. My photo came from the website http://www.parisdjs.com/index.php/post/Paris-DJs-Soundsystem-Morning-Sunshine and here it is:
It’s funny that sunshine would be the word he picked today I feel as I am the farthest thing from sunshine. I have my moments of niceness but I’m a bit stressed out with coworkers today so the door to my office has been closed. I don’t want my non-sunshiney mood to creep out into the lives of others. I’ve been trying to be conscious of that more and more lately. Just because I’m having a frustrating day doesn’t mean everyone else is. More than once today I pictured me clobbering someone over the head with a frying pan or gouging their eyes out with a spoon. No, I did not act on it, I exercised self-control I think is how they put it.
Just for the fun of it I Googled ‘frustration’ and the 11th image is from http://booksyourkidswilllove.blogspot.com/2011_02_01_archive.html.
Now that’s more like it! That’s about what I looked like for a majority of the morning, or felt like it at least, he’s pretty cute though and I wasn’t cute. Then I took my lunch to write this story and being able to be mouthy and sarcastic by writing has helped my attitude immensely. Now I almost am sunshiney. Look out world, a frustrated, sunshiney girl is on the loose, I can’t wait to see what the day ends up like. I bartend tonight, this ought to be good.
