765. Muse Gone AWOL

I hadn't seen my muse all weekend.  She had been known to disappear for days at a time, so, really, I wasn't too concerned just yet. 

Monday morning rolled around, and I headed out my front door to get the newspaper.  I was in my pajamas, as it was only 6 AM.  There was Muse on the front porch, waiting for me.  Or hiding from me, I couldn't tell which. 


She said, "Oh, hey, it's you, MOV, what's going on?"  Her make-up was smeared, she looked like she hadn't slept in 48 hours, and she was still wearing the same outfit  I had last seen her in on Friday. 

"What do you mean, 'What's going on'?  I live here,"  I replied tersely.  "I am getting my newspaper.  You look terrible, Muse, you should take a shower and maybe drink a pot of coffee.  Hold on, I'll just throw some jeans on and drive you over to Starbucks." 

"I have some ideash for you, MOVee, some realllllllllly good ideash.  We gotta talk."  She reeked of alcohol. 

"Oh, Muse, not again.  Forget the coffee, why don't you come in and just take a nap?  Hmm?  Come on, just lie down on the couch for a while." 

"New York," she whispered, "You have to write the story about that flight you had there, you know, when Nick Nolte was in first class?  That is a great story." 

"It wasn't Nick Nolte, it was Michael Keaton." 

"Nick Nolte." 

"Michael Keaton."  Now I was beginning to doubt myself.  Well, Muse had never been wrong before, I needed to scribble down the idea before she took off. 

"Hold on, Muse, let me grab a pen and paper, gimme a sec."  I walked in the front door and picked up a pen and grabbed an old envelope off the top of the trash. 

"Ok, I'm back.  What was it now?" 

She was gone.  And so was the idea.

  2. Dagnabbit! Maybe you need a Muse Trap? Stock it with smokes, gin and chocolate and see if she sticks around.

  10. I'm fascinated with your Muse. Mine is cranky and pissed all the time. I have to settle him down by being funny.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
