The ideal day…sort of

I’ve seen this so many times already that I think I just barfed a little in my mouth.

You know…describe your ideal day stuff.

I mean…seriously?

I’m paying my coach some hard-earned bones so that I can fine-tune my writing, and in return, he emails me this as my writing prompt for today?

“…Rick. Today I want you to write about your ideal day…”

Fuck.
Me.
Running.


But alas…I too have seen Daniel-San “wax on-wax off”, so I’ ma gonna dig in, curse Ian under my breath, and polish the fuck outta this topic because the truth is…

I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD MY IDEAL DAY.

So here we go.

First of all, I set my alarm every day…even Saturday and Sunday’s.

It goes off at 0745.

Shit…

Already?

I hit snooze.

That bastard snooze button only “snoozes” for 4 min and 59 seconds, and just as I doze back off and dream about…well…dreams only a devious writer’s mind can dream…it.

GOES.
OFF.
AGAIN.


I finally kick the sheets off (yes, I KICK them off), and I stretch.

My iPhone is snatched off the charger, and I open up to my daily scripture app. I forget what it’s called, but what I get is about five minutes of a pre-selected scripture that I absorb to truly set the tone for my day.
