Out Like A Light

Updated on February 21, 2016

Boy Was My Wife Mad

A busy day of work and I came home after a few stops along the way

I seen a winter jacket for a great price

It is a bright orange hunting jacket

Water proof and wind resistant

I don't hunt

I love it

Then a seen a few books

They describe my personality

More books my wife will think I lost my mind

I talked to my wife on her break

Everything was good and upbeat

She will call me when she gets out

Like she always does

That's in two and half hours

I got off the phone and started to write a hub

Exhausted I fell asleep while writing

When I woke up I decided to take a nap

I laid down on top of our bed and off to la la land

My wife called me like expected

I didn't pick up

Then she drove home and tried me again

Ninety minute drive

This is three hours from our last conversation

She went to the door

I had it locked

There have been some break ins in the neighborhood

So my wife told me to lock up the car

Make sure you lock the door

If you take a nap

When we first moved to Maine

That's one of the things I loved

Leaving the door open all the time

Feeling safe

My wife has every reason to be furious

I have no excuse

I didn't hear you

She rang the door bell and knocked hard on the door

Then she realized she had an extra set of keys in the glove box of the car

She was standing at the foot of the bed

Yelling my name

Michael, Michael over and over

I jumped up

What ?

What !


I was in such a deep sleep

I left the light on in the kitchen

Dishes in the sink

I planned on washing

A sandwich half eaten

Odd as it may seem

I have no good explanation

I don't drink so I can't say I was drunk

No drugs either

I always had an addictive nature

I knew if I started anything it would be impossible for me to stop

So I avoid normal vices like drinking coffee and cigarettes

I use to be a workaholic

That took me forever to cut down and work only one job

Always feeling guilty

That I could work more

Time is money

I have to save for a rainy day

Save for an emergency

Put my social life on hold

Plenty of time for play later

Now my only addiction turned to passion is reading and writing

Both take up my free time

I can never get enough

My wife comes first and after that

My time is mine

When I open a book it is if I become that writer

I follow the writers words as if it was the only thing that matters in the world

When I put down the book

I easily get focused on anything else I do

I read about it

It's called being hyper focused

So whatever I do

If it's watching t.v. or walking

I get absorbed

My passion and excitement trickle through

Life has so many possibilities

I think we should all dive in

The waters ice cold

Was this the right choice

Too late now

I'm already soaking wet

All I can do now

Is enjoy and I hope you will enjoy it too

      At the worst of times I may say something in passing just with no meaning and not realize my hubby has other thoughts on mind and may take it the wrong way. Then when the explosion comes I always wonder Was it something I said?
