PAPER . . . THINK PAPER

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Everyone's favorite donkey, jenny_o, who claims she is a Procrastinating Donkey, said that paper is the theme for this week's Poetry Monday. I've never been good at writing a poem with a particular theme. My poetry shoots out of the top of my head, lands in pieces on the floor, and then has to be put together.

So I'm trying to remember if I've written a poem in the past that has something to do with paper. Let me take a gander at my old poetry posts. Don't go anywhere. I'll be right back. Probably.

Look at the photo of the cute donkeys while I'm gone:



Okay. I'm back. I can't think of a poem that has anything to do with paper, and I looked at some of my older poems. Nothing about paper. Furthermore, I realized I've written some freaking weird poems.

No poem today, but visit Procrastinating Donkey. jenny_o will probably have a poem.

I'm writing this post on Sunday morning. It rained earlier and the temperature is only 81 at 10:35 a.m. I'm trying to stay awake so I'll sleep tonight. I get my days and nights mixed up. I told my nice neighbor across the street that I was born to run the streets at night. I'm a real wild child.

Willy Dunne Wooters suggested that I start using my blog as therapy, the way I did when I started blogging. It helped a lot then. I don't know if it will help now or if I'll just feel whiny.

Willy Dunne Wooters has been and might still be in the hospital because of an infection. He actually called an ambulance instead of calling me to take him to the hospital. I swear I think the man is so terrified that he'll be beholden to someone that he would rather spend a fortune on an ambulance than let me take him to the hospital. I emailed him a while ago to ask how he is. He hasn't answered.

I'll let you know how he is when I find out.

Paper . . . I still have paper on the brain.

Nope! Can't think of a thing.

And I'm so sleepy. I have a long day of trying to stay awake ahead of me. Arrrrrrrgh, all I really wanna do is take a nap.

Oh! Something else happened that was weird. Sunday night--I think it was Sunday night or maybe Monday--I was spraying something with WD40. The can stopped spraying, but I knew it wasn't empty. I stuck a pin in the schnozzle in case it was clogged. Nothing happened and then all of a sudden it started spraying really hard and of course I had my face close to the can so I could see the schnozzle and it sprayed me in the eyes! Mostly my left eye.

It hurt. I might have cursed some. The can said if you get it in your eyes to flush them with water. So I did.

My eyes stung and watered a lot. But they got better the next day.

Ooooooooh, I'm so sleepy. My kingdom for a nap.

As soon as I find out about Willy Dunne Wooters, I'll let you know, and I'll tell you if I was able to stay awake all day. I want to give in and sleep, sleep, sleep . . . .


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

Paper . . . still thinking paper . . . .

The Paper Caper--sounds as if it could be a good title for a mystery novel, but why would someone steal paper?



I think that Julie Andrews not being able to sing anymore is one of the saddest things in the world. I saw her on Broadway (second row seats) in Victor Victoria. She was wonderful.

It just occurred to me that maybe Willy Dunne Wooters made up the whole thing about the infection so he can sneak away from me.

I'm so sleepy that my mind is wandering all over the place.

Update: Willy Dunne Wooters is out of the hospital and resting at home.

    1. He still has a fever and is very tired. His doctor is trying to figure out the source of the infection, but he's at home now.

  2. I am so very glad your eye is ok.
    Let us know about WDW - and know that people around the world are sending you and him heaps of good wishes.
    And yes, there is indeed a poem up at the Procrastinating Donkey's home.

  3. I'm glad your eye recovered, Janie. Hoping the same for WDW. Not sleeping when you're exhausted is hard; you have to keep moving. My days and nights are always screwed up, too. It's after 3 am and I'm going to bed, now. Goodnight! ☺

    1. Although I stayed awake all day on Sunday, I couldn't sleep Sunday night. It's frustrating.

    2. There's another issue - being too tired to sleep! That happens to me, too. Sigh...

  4. Fighting the urge to sleep is so difficult, but the sleep you get when you finally nod off is the best and deepest.

  5. Keep us posted! At least your eye is well lubricated now, should you need to roll your eyes at something.

  7. I hope Willy Dunne Wooters gets well soon. Of course he won't run away from you.

    I know the feeling. My new medication makes me so drowsy. You can do this, Janie. Stay awake!😁 I know it is tough showing up for the day job when you feel out of sorts. I know I do. Keep well. Hugs.

  8. I am with you. I have my days and nights mixed up right now and have to be up and out of the house by 7:30 so this finally being able to go to sleep at 3 in the morning is not serving me well.

  9. Thank you for the mentions and the sweet donkey picture, Janie. I used to write poetry only when moved, too. This Poetry Monday challenge is just that - a challenge - for me.

    If I sprayed WD40 in my eye I would be freaking out! I'm glad you could see to read the instructions on flushing your eye out. Debra's comment made me laugh, though :)

    Best wishes to WDW on a quick recovery. These men who are so independent - they are exasperating, are they not?!

  10. I have a thing about eyes, they freakk me out so washing my eye out would not be easy for me to do.
    Of course I hope WDW has a fast recovery

    1. I just splashed water in my eye because I don't have the equipment to actually wash out the eye. Splashing worked fine.

      Delete
  11. When I have to sleep, I fight it badly. WD40 might keep me up, though.

  12. Rocks, scissors...Nah, I don't have a poem about paper for you either. Sorry.
    Love.

  13. Being sleepy does have its benefits. My mind wanders, too. But, when I'm wide awake my mind careens off the walls.

  14. Hi Janie - am glad the eye is recovering ... it must have been a shock. While WDW gets better - I sure hope he heals quickly and they can find out what the challenge is ... take care - cheers Hilary
