OT, Head Bug, Et Al


OT, Head Bug, Et Al

By Nandy Ekle

Almost a month into the new year. There’s been mandatory overtime at my day job, visitors in my home, deep cleaning, and rearranging, all topped off with the onset of that old head cold I’ve named Rhino Virus. Rhino Virus is not my friend. In fact, I’m actually a little bit of a baby where Rhino Virus is concerned.

The good points? Well, the overtime at work adds to my vacation fund. The visitors are fun and interesting, sometimes leaving me a new story to think about. The deep cleaning and rearranging, well, those benefits are obvious. As for Rhino Virus, I can still manage to have a little fun with that.

For instance, I can think of this head cold as a character, give it a name, and create a whole scene around it. We all know how our bodies fight disease, so let’s just imagine a championship ball game (going along with the season) take place inside my nose and sinus cavity. The game players wear white uniforms and the cheerleaders are dressed in red. The virus team wears an ugly puke green.

The fun in this is with the social media sites I belong to. I can make short random updates giving play-by-play reports of the action going on.

Leave me a comment and let me know what mundane parts of daily living do you turn into stories?

  1. I found the perfect quote for you in the February 2014 issue of the Readers Digest, “Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us-and, sometimes they win.” Stephen King”
