Day in the life, a Manic Monday Post

Being in a somewhat creative slump of late, I have been struggling to come up with things to blog about … despite a strong desire to blog about SOMETHING. With my herd of blogs (does 5 count as a herd?), that becomes even more challenging. However, recently, the world-renowned Cheri of Cheri Speak, a blogger who I greatly admire for many reasons (even if I do not adequately let her KNOW this) came up with a bit of a challenge that I thought might be fun to try, and might help me out of my slump. The Week of Words Challenge, starting today (yep, I am a last-minute kind of guy), seems like just the thing. Monday’s challenge, entitled Manic Monday, asks us to detail a day when things did not go right all day in music form … parodying the Bangles’ Manic Monday. This is my attempt:

“Panic … um … day”

Sun is up already
I have not yet gone to bed
I was kissin’ a super model
At least I thought so in my head
But I can’t be in bed
‘Cause of all the plans I made
These are the days
When you wish at home you stayed.

It’s just another panic … um … day
I wish that maybe one day
I could call it my fun day
A “I don’t have to run day”
It’s just another panic … um … day

Don’t have a car, can’t catch the train
Got to be to SOMEWHERE by nine
And if I had an aeroplane
I still couldn’t remember where this time
‘Cause it takes me so long just to figure out what DAY it is
Blame it on the friend
At getting me out he is a wiz.

It’s just another panic … um … day
I wish that maybe one day
I could call it my fun day
A “I don’t have to run day”
It’s just another panic … um … day

All of the nights
Why did my friend have to pick last night
To go out?
(and the night before last, and the night before the night before last)
Doesn’t it matter
That I might have things to do
Employment … of sorts
He tells me in his salesman’s voice
“C’mon dude, you know you are bored”
Time it goes so fast
(When you’re misbehaving)

It’s just another panic … um … day
I wish that maybe one day
I could call it my fun day
A ‘I don’t have to run day’
It’s just another panic … um … day

It’s just another panic … um … day
I wish that maybe one day
I could call it my fun day
A ‘I don’t have to run day’
It’s just another panic … um … day
