Today is the Day – And It’s Going to Be a Good One

By Gary Gzik -

I woke up this morning and decided today is the day.

It was 6:32 a.m. as I reached over and smothered the annoyance of my alarm clock. I had managed to tolerate it for the past 2 minutes before I put it out of its misery.

As I twisted out of bed, my feet nearly ran over the collie at my feet. “Lady,” I muttered. “One of these days I’m going to break my neck if you don’t move.

I mumbled on into the en suite. What a lovely way to start the day. I peered into the mirror and noticed a grimace on my face. Geez old man, you’re getting old… and you look miserable. I picked and prodded at the wrinkles appearing under my eyes. Those damn kids… if I didn’t have to tolerate their aches and pains I wouldn’t have these wrinkles and grey hairs. Of course it was their entire fault.

I continued to get into the shower. Of course, my wife had left her dumb candles on the edge of the tub and I knocked them on the floor. Great make some more noise, wake up the family and have the wife nag at me, just what I need. I continued to chew and mutter as I regretted the day ahead. A desk full of papers awaits me, along with annoyance of my bullheaded boss. I hate where this day is going…

Suddenly my alarm rings, I must have been dreaming.

It was 6:32 a.m. as I reached over and turned off my alarm clock. I had managed to squeeze in an extra two minutes before I realized it was time to get ready for work.

As I twisted out of bed, my feet nearly ran over the collie at my feet. “Lady,” I whispered. “Good morning old girl.

I tiptoed on into the en suite. What a lovely way to start the day. I peered into the mirror and noticed a slight grin on my face. Geez old man, you’re getting old… and you look great. I picked and prodded at the wrinkles appearing under my eyes. This wrinkle is definitely from the time Anna stayed out until midnight without calling. Of course I was happy to know that our family was happy and still together.

I continued to get into the shower. Of course, my wife had left her lilac candles on the edge of the tub and I knocked them on the floor. Oh don’t make a noise, the kids and wife are sleeping and I haven’t made breakfast for them yet. I continued to softly sing and talk to myself as I thought about the day ahead. A desk full of papers awaits me, and I know I will get through them. It couldn’t be any worse than dealing with what my boss does, no wonder he is so stressed out. I can’t wait for my day to get going.

I woke up this morning, today is going to be a much better day.
