Commute



How many more times?

How many more times, running that gauntlet?

12 years x 250 days x 2 = 6000.

6000 lashes from the psychic whip named "Modern Life."

A sentence, to be served until my obligation is completed.

And then what?

Instead of racing the masses,

I'll be rising from naps.

Instead of tensing up at every intersection,

I'll be taking a pleasant walk.

Commute.

Commute my sentence.

You're sounding a little jealous of the Weaver, Batty. I have the perfect solution,if you want to postpone Retirement Envy.
Listen to Harry Potter audiobooks, read by Jim Dale. I promise it will bring you happy commuting for...oh, 4 months probably. See my upcoming post...(but don't hold your breath...it will be a few days)
