Open my eyes, stretch, and yawn,
Stumble out of bed, cursing the dawn.
Brush my teeth, brush my hair,
Wash my face…and here…and there.
Scour through my closet to find some clothes,
Then change four times from which I chose.
A glass of water, a protein bar,
Every morning (is this bizarre?)
Sometimes I run to the store or bank,
And get some gas inside my tank.
Back home to write and listen to tunes,
That’s how I spend my afternoons.
In the evening I teach a class,
And try hard not to be a smart ass.
On the way home, I stop at the gym,
That’s how I stay fit and trim.
Home once again, this time to stay,
After quite a hectic, busy day.
Sit down at my desk and begin to write,
For countless hours until it is night.
“Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for everything.” ~ Paris Hilton
