09.03.22 Haibun Wednesday

This Morning. I’ve left my coffee somewhere. Out in the garage I think. When I went to get some chicken thighs out of the freezer. The leeks in the fridge are a bit impoverished, so I’ll roast up the chicken thighs with leeks and peas. And white wine. For that I’ll need to raid Mister’s wine cooler. Maybe now. While he’s not looking. While he’s outside washing my car. What a darling that man is to wash to my car. I know nothing about wine, except some is clear, which is white, and some is red, which pokes me behind the eye with a migraine. He knows all about wine. I don’t drink much. Maybe on my birthday. My doctor asked me recently, How much do you drink? I said, not often – maybe on my birthday, and he said, How many times a year do you celebrate your birthday? I’m not convinced comedians should be doctors. It’s a good thing that I don’t mind cold coffee. Yes, honestly, my brain does rattle on like this in the morning.

I do not trust time
It travels the wrong direction
Time escapes like steam

  1. What is this “washing of cars” of which thou speaketh?
    And peas? Really? Ick.
    But your captured morning, wine or no wine, comedic doctor or no, is delicious. Thanks.

  2. I so enjoyed this, Misky. Your writing is full of love. And witty observations (eg; the one about the doctor). Doctors do seem to find it hard to believe that people don’t drink. My mother in law received similar attention (with less comedy).

  3. Misky – you are too funny! I love your rambling thoughts! And this gem in particular from your dr:

    How many times a year do you celebrate your birthday? I’m not convinced comedians should be doctors.
