This post is in response to the weekly prompt at Carry On Tuesday #144
Sprawled on the couch. Haven't showered in days. Three to be exact. My eyes keep glancing at the cell phone. Nothing. I check my inbox again. Nada. My head swings toward the door. Wait? Was that a knock? No, just Thumper's tail wagging and hitting the hard wood floor again.
C'mon, any minute now.
Mr. Whiskers has reverted to glaring at me, matched with a low growl since meowing and leg rubbing hasn't worked the past two days. Don't know how much longer I'll be able to call in sick. The kids just kiss my check on their way to school and before going to bed. My wife has given up calling me to the dinner table and just hands me a plate instead.
But I just can't take the risk of not being here when that opportunity arrives. What if I miss that second chance?
don't let time pass you by...
