MBNOV Reprise 2
I’m staring at the mirror, observing my figure unhappy with what I see. I should start doing something for my body, so I’m looking for the best for the feast next month. It is the time to celebrate the renewal of my driving license. It was a long path, and I have a lot of admiration for everybody who managed to do this type of test without training. And nobody is exempt from taking such a test; otherwise, you can’t move around in this place.
I shake off the echo of the test, walk down to the kitchen, and start reading the newspaper to gain insight into the world. Not that I want to, but it is always helpful to be informed. The current consensus is that a certain famous minister displays unworthy conduct. And he is under heavy suspicion from the public and media. I don’t know how much of this is true. It sounds more like a lot of hot air.
I adjust my legs to prevent a cramp and leave the front page. Let’s ignore the messages of war and the aluminium crisis for now and look if there is anything about my favorite movie franchise in the culture section.
My tea water is ready, and I fill my mug. I found a unique cup in a barrel shape next to an old tire. That was last year when I visited an antique store. I’ve only bought the mug and a first-edition print of a novel. The story is strange, but I like it. It is about a group of humans repeating the same errors all the time. The plot is placed on an ice planet where they were apparently stranded some years ago. It is a crazy story but also a bit dated. But the author had some funny ideas about how they can survive, and they have a herd of sheep grazeing on some moss growing in an ice cave.
Drinking my tea, I need to update my schedule for today, so I can retain my sanity and my ritual downtime in the evening. I have some commitments today. But mostly, I can relax today, which helps my motivation.
The trend in my life lately was towards the strange. Last week I bought myself a pet fish. I fought it would help with my safety – but I’m still not sure which brain wave I was following at that moment.
Like the last time a creative text with all the words from this years MBNOV words. See MBNOV Reprise for my last one.
