794. Muse Hangs With Oakley

(**Missed yesterday?  Read THAT first.)

“Why did you send her here?” my sister whispered angrily into the phone.  “She’s driving me insane.” 

“I didn’t send her, she said you invited her!” 
“Why would I do that?  All she does is bounce around the house like she’s on crack or something and shout out ideas.  Oakley!  You should invent a doorbell that when you ring it, it sounds like a dog barking!  You know, for little old ladies that live by themselves.  Or, Oakley!  What about a horn for the BACK of your car, so if someone honks at you for no reason, you can honk back?  And Oakley!  Can you build a washing machine that is ALSO a dryer all in one so that people don’t have to move the clothes from one machine to another? 

“Those are kinda some good ideas, you have to admit, I mean, especially the one about the washing machine—”
“MOV, no!  Focus.  She is here 24/7, in my face.” 

“How long has she been there?” 

“She got here this morning.” 
“Well, then that is not technically 24/7 because if she hasn’t even been there a day yet, then—”

“That’s beside the point.  When will she leave?  I can’t handle all her ideas, it’s like she just wakes up thinking about stuff and wanting other people to do it.”
“Umm, that is sort of what a Muse does, you know?” 

“I don’t know how you can take it.” 
“Well, she’s not here every day, she just shows up when she has something I should write about, like the other day, she had this cool idea that I could write about what if we all had to vote on our favorite type of chocolate, and then you had to wear this tattoo proclaiming what type, and that is how people were grouped, instead of Democrat and Republican, it would be milk chocolate and dark—”

“Gah, that’s another thing!  She is eating all my chocolate!  I just bought some from that little European market I like, you know, the one up the street that I can bike to—”
“Hey, that reminds me, when are you and Muse going biking?” 

“Excuse me?” 

“Muse said you were going to bike across America together?” 
“She did?  She told you that?  Where does she come up with this stuff?!  I never agreed to bike with her.  I'll bet she doesn't even own a bike.”   

(to be continued …)

  1. She's so cute and entertaining from afar. I think she'd drive me insane as well. I'd be milk chocolate.

    1. Muse is addictive though (cannot say the same for milk chocolate-- my heart belongs to dark!).

  2. She ate all the chocolate? Well, that is unacceptable! I'm a dark chocolate gal -- but not too sure about having that tattooed on my person somewhere.

    1. Just a little Goidva morsel tattooed on your ankle?

  3. I love this dialogue. MOV, she ate all the chocolate, there's something perfect about a muse that loves chocolate--if she likes cookies too, send her to my house, that's ALL woman. ":))

  4. I've heard of a combination washer/dryer before. I don't know that I would trust one, though. It's like a Republican insisting he's also a Democrat, or a milk chocolate person insisting he really likes dark chocolate.

    1. The whole washer/ dryer thing scares me. You know, electricity and water? I always thought they don't go together.

  5. I would be upset about the chocolate, too. :)

    1. Muse needs to replace the chocolate I think.

  6. There are definitely combination washer/dryers. A number of people who RV/caravan have them in their RVs. It takes up less space. I've also seen larger washer/dryer combos for sale at appliance and big box stores. They're pretty expensive.

    Milk chocolate here!

    1. Why am I the last to know about the washer/ dryer thing?

  7. Wow, with all of her adventures, is Muse working on (or having you work on) her own book?

    1. Hi Andrea, because of you, I gave Muse her own blog. Now people can click on the Muse pic on my sidebar and go to all the Muse archives (she has 13 previous stories). Her blog is called:

  9. Oh my God... the washer/dryer idea is ingenious!

    1. thank you, but now everyone tells me it is taken......

  10. Yes, as the others have pointed out the washer/dryer combo idea is taken and so is the barking dog bell but the horn in the back, I think is waiting for you to run to a pantent attorney before someone steals your idea.

    I think Muse is going to not be welcome anywhere if she can't keep her paws off of other peoples chocolate. Muse would lose a hand if she went after white chocolate at my house.

    1. I kinda like the horn that honks in back. :)

  11. I wouldn't mind tattooing my favorite type of chocolate on my thighs, because that's where it all ends up anyway.

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.)
