(Author’s Note: This was a piece I wrote… quickly. Then immediately shelved it. I decided to publish it, after reading Brainy Versatility‘s post, “Get out of your comfort zone.”)

That’s it.

I’m tired and hungry.  My back is killing me from slouching over this keyboard for too long.  And my head is pounding.

I’m done for the night.

Shut-off the light.  Pick-up some takeout.  Pair it with a soothing Cabernet, and some Motrin for good measure.

Tomorrow’s a new day.  A fresh start.

Driving back home, my head—still throbbing—is over taking James Taylor on the radio.

Eh.  Just remnants from a good day’s work.  Turn JT up a tad.  Sing softly to surpress it.

Almost home.  Just five more minutes.  No problem.

The remnants are becoming notions.  No.  Please, no.  Not tonight.

“Rock-a-bye sweet baby James”

Pull-in.  the smell of the sub is wafting from the bag.  Keys tossed to the counter.  A long pour of red.  TV on.  Feet up.  Sleep will follow soon.

First bite. First sip.  Already my headache is subsiding.

Wait, no.  There it is.  Shit.

A full sentence.

I’m up for another four hours.
