K = kerflooey…


Have you had days when everything has gone

I have but it has been awhile so I know
K2016erflooey day is due.

Most of my K2016erflooey days happen at work.
It usually starts first thing…even before I get to work.
I hit the snooze button too often and then I have to rush.
I hate rushed mornings!
Mornings are meant to be peaceful beginnings.

Then at work…it almost always starts with the computer.
Maybe you don’t know but computers are K2016erflooey generators.
Then someone calls with bad news that I have to relay;
something is out of stock, discontinued, the order
was not received or shipped to the wrong place.
Someone needs information that will take hours
to compile and they need it now.
Of course, that news makes the computer go K2016erflooey.
Then I forget to stop at the store for cat food on my way home
or I remember the cat food and forget the people food.
I get home and the elevator isn’t working
so it’s nine flights of stairs to walk up.
I want a relaxing bath and there is no hot water.
I get in my jammies and head for bed to find
that some cat has coughed up a hairball on my pillow.
Ready for sweet dreams and I can’t sleep because of all
the K2016erflooey that happened.
The next morning I go for a walk and
all the K2016erflooey stuff is forgotten.
All is right in my world again.

That’s my post for the letter

  1. Oh yes inded I have kerflooey days like that… and I love the name for them! 🙂 It does seem to start out wrong at the very beginning and snowball from there. Mostly I am just glad when they are finally over because it’s hard to get a kerflooey day back on track. I’m glad they don’t happen to often! I want to go walking there, my allergies might not like it my my eyes and soul certainly would! 🙂

    1. And obviously some days my fingers can’t spell and they use different words from what I tell them!! Maybe fingers have kerflooey days too, I know mine do! 🙂

    2. Most kerflooey days are ones that need to end with an early bedtime. The picture of the dogwoods is just down the street from where I live. It’s a great walking neighborhood but not so great for peeps with allergies.

  2. Mornings are supposed to be peaceful beginnings. Hmmm.

    In fairness, since retiring, they have been (except if the dogs feel that I’ve spent too long in bed, but that’s another matter). I normally wake at 6am-ish and get up about an hour later. I slept in this morning, because one of the dogs decided that a 4am pee was needed. She awoke me by jumping on my bed at 7.20am.

    Ten years ago, that would still have left me late for work!

    1. The cats usually start pestering me about 6:30 but I have gotten very good at ignoring them. I am a night owl and like my days to start closer to afternoon however, that doesn’t happen all that often.
