5 more minutes, please!!

Updated on July 20, 2012
Source

Bear with me please.....!



No! Is not about intimacy or more time in bed

Just woke up and HP is already tormenting my brain

This freaking addiction is making me insane

"Check status Lord, maybe you got HP's e-mail"


I need a cup of coffee and some french toast, I guess

Real HouseWife, I forgot your recipe. I'm a mess

Straight to the bathroom and I ran out of tooth paste (disregard toilet paper)

I look myself in the mirror and I scream!!


Forget about you HP

I need a break from thee

Shoot! I forgot to comment on that HOTD

better sign in and get over with it


But Seriously HP! didn't tell you to leave me alone?

"You better check your feeding. Won't you sweet Lord"

No way! Now my lap top is talking to me, Oh my!

"You know..! You gotta keep that score high!"


I wish I could go to bed for just five more minutes

"Then you will miss Mary615 Puerto rico's latest"

I wish you could just shout your mouth!

"careful lord! You promised not to be this loud"


Source

Now what! My score went down from 95?

"I cannot tell you... You know why!"

Gotta check Victoria Lynn's hub then

"Yeah, how to keep you score high!"


Now would you stop enticing me?

"Just share Janine huldie's latest hub"

I know, she is a team player, for sure

"Don't forget to re-start me later sweet Lord"


Yeah I need to take a quick nap again

That pascal's triangle burnt my brain

I need another five more minutes and I will be fine

Nothing like resting before HP take over .... my mind!


Wait! I forgot to write a summary and that pinterest thing

"What about delicious, Stumble upon and a comment from Lathing?"

This addiction is getting on my nerves!

You know what... I'm simply going back to bed!

    A Hubbies Anonymous and a commenters Anonymous would fit right in. jokes aside, we are fine this way. We signed the contract and we cannot leave the marriage just like that!

    Debbie Brooks, I took that rewarding nap, and almost fell from my bed. You seem to have the same addiction I see. Thanks for being such a sweet friend!

    Heck I know just how you feel my Lord. Tis the night that this poet burns the wick at both ends and sleep is enticing but distant from his thoughts. Vincent must scribe until the ink is dry and his head sometimes will lay to rest for a nap on his desk.

    Awakened afresh he to opens his emails first and sipping his java will steal a read or two or three of the latest hubs written by talented scribes like yourself. I just wish I had more time? oh well one must be happy with the time at hand to enjoy writers like you. Now go get some sleep my Lord.

    I gotta tell you....one of the more stressful times of the entire day is when I log on in the morning and see over 100 emails notifications waiting for me.....it's like getting hit in the head as a wake up call......ARGHHHHHHH
