Nap Time

“Now I lay me down to sleep...” *Sleepy*
My phone is ringing... *Music1**Music2*
I don’t know anyone in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

“Now I lay me down to sleep...” *Sleepy*
My phone is ringing... *Music1**Music2*
I don’t know anyone in Seattle, Washington.

“Now I lay me down to sleep...” *Sleepy*
My phone is ringing... *Music1**Music2*
I don’t know anyone in Kalispell, Montana.

“Now I lay me down to sleep...” *Think*
Forget the nap, I might as well get up.
I’ll make the meatloaf for dinner.

Hamburger, breadcrumbs, eggs, and spices
Squishy meat mixture between my fingers
My phone is ringing... *Music1**Music2*

Meaty drippy fingers remove cooking gloves
My phone is still ringing... *Music1**Music2*
I might know someone in Portland, Oregon

I put the phone up to my ear, “hello?” Loud click.
End call. My phone rings again... *Music1**Music2*
I’m about to lose my temper. “Hello?” *Irritated*

“Hello, you have just won a trip for two to Hawaii.”
I growl and angrily push ‘end call.’ *Angry*
My phone is now in the freezer.
