Here is my regular morning routine, not that you care, but it sets up this post.
Awake at 8:00 AM.
Watch “Leave it to Beaver” reruns.
Make breakfast and coffee downstairs while watching “Dr. Phil.”
Take second cup of coffee upstairs and play with the computer for a while.
Go to the basement to practice guitar.
I always feel a twinge of guilt when I leave for my basement lair. Mrs. C is still in bed, she works nights and does not turn in early so she relaxes in bed in the morning. I feel like I am deserting her when I head for my man cave, but I need a little alone time.
Still I feel I should spend more time with Mrs. C in the morning. She always seems so disappointed when I leave her.
The other day I came upstairs with my second cup of coffee and after playing with the computer for a while I turned my attention to the TV.
“Aren’t you going to practice?”
“In a while, I thought I would spend some extra quality time with you today.”
“Oh…OK…er How much time.”
“Why, don’t you want me to stay a bit?”
“Are you trying to get rid of me?”
“No! But I do like a little extra nap when you practice guitar.”
“So, you want me to leave you alone?”
So many days of wasted feelings of guilt…I am a jerk!
