Mostly Minutiae No. 7

Didn’t sleep well. Got up anyway.
(You probably guessed that.)
Can you tell I’m in a hurry?
Been in a time crunch all day!

Breakfast was early; but lovely
as usual. And we had the usual.
Except her bread was too much,
so she tried another for toast.

She is singing, “Mango, mango,
mango” this morning, mango
being her favorite jam. Was out
for a while. Made her day.

Haven’t used Linux for a while.
Trying to remember stuff. Like I
was scrolling through packages,
and the old ScummVM was there!

I installed it soon after breakfast,
and started to watch the comic-
book-like intro to the”Beneath a
Steel Sky” game I played eight
years ago on Linux. Holy Smokes!

My second cup of coffee grew
murky and cold. Cold Coffee-mate
is the pits. I have to cut out those
rich dairy creamers for now.

Installed ClamAV and searched
the net for its GUI, ClamTk. In the
middle of my being lost in Linux,
she stuck her head in, “Isn’t your
appointment at eleven; it’s five
after ten.”

She couldn’t believe how fast this
old infantry guy moved. Shaved,
dressed, out the door in ten
minutes. (Haven’t done that lately.)

Got to fly now. I was supposed to
start dinner twenty minutes ago.

Who says it’s too late for coffee?
I’m having coffee. Can I breathe
now? (Wrote this post in amazing
time! I am good to go!)

Poet, Writer, US Army (Retired)

I dreamed of writing when I was a youngster. The love of books and writing may have helped to dull the pain of severe sexual abuse as I was sexually abused by two men at my father’s place of work from age 8 to 12 or so. I learned about this for the first time when I was 50 years old. So, as a boy, reading was the only place I had to go to. My fantasy world was better and safer than my real world. I loved reading and writing.
Reading books and writing poetry are a joy to me still and are an important part of my life. (See my About Me page on my blog for the complete profile.)
