How long do we have?

How long do we have?

“How long do we have?”

“Long Enough.

“How long is that?”

“Don’t worry about it.”

“Are you sure no one will come through here?”

“Not entirely. They shouldn’t be. But you’re watching out for that right?”

“Right. Are you finished putting that on yet?”

“Are you in a hurry? You won’t enjoy life if you keep rushing things. Besides haven’t you ever heard that perfection can’t be rushed?”

“Perfection? Look. Maybe I can just get someone else to do this for me.”

“Nah. Almost... Ready. There.”

“Oh. Is that…”

“Worth the wait, huh?”


“What’s wrong?”

“How… Eh? What am I supposed to do with that?”

“Nothing. But I can’t do this by myself. Put your hand right there and I can do the rest of the work.  Ah... but keep watching. And try to relax. “

“Ok . But this is uncomfortable.”

“Uncomfortable? Let loose a little. How can you expect to enjoy anything if you are so uptight?

“I don’t know. You should just… Nevermind. Keep going.”

“Is there actually anything about this you want to do?”

“Yeah. It was my idea. Don’t you remember?”

“Then keep your hand there. In fact give me the other one too. I need it… Right there. Go on. Get in there. HEY! Pay attention.”

“Uh-huh. But this is…”

“Dirty. Is that what it is? You have to get your hands dirty to enjoy life sometimes.”

“It’s not that. I don’t know about this anymore.”

“Stop complaining. It’s too late to change your mind. Now move your hands a little closer in. Right up next to the… That’s the spot. Slowly ‘em let out a little. Slower.”

“Alright. Can you move to the left then? That pinches.


“A little. How long is this going to take?”

“Bored already? You can’t enjoy anything can you? Don’t worry. I’m almost done.”

“That looks like…

“Uh-huh. Close.”

“Are you…?”

“Finished. Yeah. How’s that for you?”

“Alright, I guess.”

“You guess? Did you…?”

“Look… yeah. Whatever. It’s fine.”

“Are you sure? I can do it again.”

“It’s alright. You don’t… we don’t need to again.”

“Of course we don’t have to… but there’s time and no one is around.”

“I don’t think that it’s necessary. It’s good… like this.”

“Good?  Did you even have fun?”

“Yeah. Of course I did. Thanks.”

“Not a problem. Well then what do you think?”

“The sign looks really great.”

400. Not everything is what you think it is. Been a little off the map for a couple, but still around. Busy is best. Being not at your best isn’t always busy but it will take up your time nonetheless. Especially when you forget about the time and its measure of health. enjoy. kisses. m.
