June 24, 2005 - 9:39 a.m.
A warm summer day, hot powdery white sand, clear blue skies, cerulean waves, rainbow striped lounge chair, oversized towel, Corona light with lime, no noise, no children, no husband, sun beating down, bronzed tone body, floppy straw hat, big rimmed sunglasses
A cold winter day, warm log cabin, blazing red fire, thick white rug, sleek chenille blanket, engrossing romance novel, light classical music, glass of fine wine, satin long pajamas, no noise, not children, no husband, warm raspberry soufflé, grey Persian kitten
Feet soaking in bubbles, chair massaging back, lavender wrap around your neck, best girlfriend sitting beside you, pop music in background, good conversation, no children, no husband, spring water in glass at your fingertips, chocolate chip cookies
8:00 in the morning, three year old barely awake, whining, whining, whining, 1.25 of Dimetapp, 1.25 of Motrin, 1 tsp Amoxicillin, searching for clean underwear, arguing about clothes, husband checking e-mail, no bottles ready, don’t wanna go pee-pee, don’t wanna go to school, don’t wanna wear sandals, carry me, want Batman snacks, gaaaaa, daaaaaa, heeeeeyyy, let’s go.
