Junosmom's No Good Very Bad Night

Last night, The girls were at a party, William was already in bed asleep, and dh was watching golf with his eyes closed. After locking up the chickens, I sat on the back deck and watched the rose-colored sky through the trees. Lightening bugs danced around in the dusk, crickets sang, and I tried to think that this peace was what people must have experienced before there were too damn many people in the world.

Not a thought too soon: some moron began setting off firecrackers down the street, which set the redneck neighbor's hound dog to howling, all of which threw my dog, up until now sitting quietly, into a nervous panic as she began licking me to death. Mosquitoes simultaneously began trying to get blood out of turnip by poking me over and over. I gave up and retreated to the air-conditioned indoors. Perhaps I'll move to Australia.

Notes:
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

I loved that children's book! I thought it was creative to write about "bad moods." I have lots of experience with my own grouchy moods -- maybe I should write a book. (when I figure out how to get rid of them)

Ahh, country life. I cuss the person that ever invented fireworks too. It can ruin an otherwise peaceful evening, and we already know what it does to my dogs.
