Conscious Stream

Can I get out of bed?  What time is it?  It’s too early (roll over).  I have to get up.  Out of bedroom.  Dogs need to pee.  Coffee.  My eyes are itchy.  Where is the whipped cream?  Weird as fuck dream.  I have a headache.  Medication?  Weather?  Slept too long?  Caffeine withdrawal?  Stress?  Good morning God.  “What a beautiful day!”  I am safe.  I need to shower.  Squeaky clothesline bird.  Andrew*, I am sorry about that.  Do I have time to get to the gym today?  I have to get to the gym, but I don’t have time.  Lawyer conference.  Shower.  Can I wear a dress today?  And go sleeve-less.  Shopping.  Errands.  Sister-Friend.  What’s for dinner?  Shopping.  SQUIRREL!   People who turn right while in the left turn lane … and vice versa.  Where is the curry?  Can I get numb tongue here?  Shoot, I need a can of beer.  Get your G1, kiddo.  Anger.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  I’m hot.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  Ruminate.  I can’t do this any longer.  Invoke “Is it happening now?”  Kid 1549. Mom 0.  Where is the beer can chicken recipe?  Do I want carrots?  I want chocolate.  No gym.  No chocolate.  Not my circus.  Not my monkey.  Yes he is.  Rumours.  I hate gossipers.  Google article on gossip.  Politics.  Which one is the lesser of all evils?  Wow I love my new pedicure in glittery purple!  Can I wear flip flops today?  Yes I can.  Sex.  Take out the garbage.  Not in that order.  Can you do my makeup again?  Lovely.  I actually read an article on quantum mechanics.  Interview with Margaret Atwood.  Toronto news.  I hate peeling potatoes.  Maybe I should make country mashed potatoes and leave skins on?  Can’t because of mouth sores.  Need soft potatoes.  Lots of sirens.   Chat with fellow authors.  Handmaid’s Tale could be real.  Terrorists.  My gosh, there are a lot of sirens!  Must be a huge crash.  Contemplate heaven and hell.  Are we in hell?  Sure feels like it.  People don’t peel potatoes in heaven (I actually thought that).  I’m nuts.  Python.  Not the snake.  The language.  When is my next doctor’s appointment?  Mammogram next week and first cancer screenings.  I missed my start of chemo anniversary.  Brain deep in AI research.  Brain cramp.  The dogs are rambunctious.  Man, those sirens are still blaring.  Thankful to be home safe.  TED Talks.  Human rights.  Religion.  Fordnation?  Time is created.  It does not exist.  I can’t believe how much I enjoyed poetry in my Creative Writing class.  I really love writing.  I miss you.  Pinterest really threatened to kick us out?  Is it a lump or scar tissue?  Anxiety.  The dogs are begging for turkey.  Mayo.  It needed mayo.  Third glass of water!  Sirens now leaving the scene.  I pray everyone is safe.   How about a Berkeley class on writing to fill my time?  Enrolled. Oh wait … it’s a trap.  Tired.  Summary of online argument regarding Fordnation.  Facebook still shares political propaganda.  Why do people care what coat Meghan wore?  Oooooooo.  Will you look at that avocado toast?!  Food porn.  I love food.  I said I would make muffins for Matt.  Beer can chicken was delicious, as usual.  Wait.  What?  Facebook dating app?  Shaking my head.  I forgot milk.  Where is Mr. 1969*?  Privacy is an illusion.  Binge watch Lost in Space.  HAL was Canadian.  “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.”  Why did I love statistics and hate calculus?  I wonder if I can dry those hydrangeas?  Why are we here?  My foot hurts.  Grammarly says my vocabulary is more unique than 91% of other users.  Beyotch.  What is it I always do on the first of the month again?  What rabbit?  Need cycling shoes.  Pink.  Oh shoot, I forgot the writing contest deadline.  Where is my list?  The garbage is full.  Do the dishes.  Stack laundry.  Why do I have to feed them every single night?  Poor Virginia.  Has the world gone mad?  News.  Get ready for bed.  Gratitude for the day.  Such a beautiful picture.  Squint.  I need new glasses.  Can racoons get in if I leave that open?  Have to call AppleCare for my iPhone.  Cracked glass.  Again.  First world problems.  Guided meditation.  Sleepwalking and sleeping pills don’t mix.
