Day 91 – Breath it in deep man, let it fill your lungs.

Slumber is like a child’s blanket. It gives a feeling of warmth, peace and security. At a quarter past four in the morning that blanket had definitely been stolen from me by my arch enemy thirst. I woke up gasping like a goldfish, my tongue sticking to the roof of my mouth as though overnight I had developed the ability to secrete glue instead of saliva. I wonder where that leaves me on Darwin’s ladder of evolution. A natural ability to cope with peanut butter or super human stamp licking skills are probably not the type of thing a potential mate is looking for.

I reached over to my litre bottle of water placed on my bedside cabinet. Squirting in a jet of liquid I was reduced to the status of plain human again. Feeling satisfied I laid back into my pillow and stared at the ceiling. What does one do that early in the morning? I decided that the best course of action was a return to sleepy town. I waited for the bus but I think I’d missed it. By 5am it still had not arrived so naturally I checked the comments on my pictures. With that task completed I had successfully managed to kill three minutes, including boot up time. I need more popular pictures to occupy my early mornings! Turning around in my bed I caught a draft across my body. The skin rippled in reply to the chill and I instinctively pulled up the covers to neutralise this chain reaction.

That’s when the bus arrived.
