Patterns in the Sand (3)

Life.

Oh yeah, that old chestnut.

Get up. Scrub face, brush teeth. Drink cup of water, nibble on some fruit. Toilet. Tea. Breakfast. Listen to radio, head to work. Commute. Get to work, laugh and giggle with colleagues while despising the life you lead and wondering how you got there.

Lunch. Chicken salad or ham and tomato sandwich? Flush down with more tea.

Rest of the working day, try to shirk off work.

Finish. Wave goodbye to colleagues. Commute, back home.

Shower, TV, argue with partner, sex with partner (3 times a week) and bed, to sleep.

Repeat the next day. For forty odd years. Then retire and die.

Sounds familiar? Well, there is one life for all of us. If the above makes you happy (and it does not make me smile), then we can all change it.

For the last six weeks, I have toiled hard, but for good reason. However, there is a little more free time coming up, and I am going to take advantage of it. Stay posted for more news later in the week on how Summer 2010 is going to get 'funky'...
