I just had this really freaky feeling. I am sitting in the school library waiting for Dad after school (coz he's a teacher at my school he usually drives me home) but here's the freaky bit. I just had this thought-----what if Dad's left and has forgotten I'm in here??? Man, I am freaking myself out right now!!!!! :O :O :O :O :O
MY CONSCIENCE- Relax, EJ. Deep breaths. Dad hasn't forgot about you. He's just really busy. Working hard. He's doing reports, remember? So he's just taking a while.
MY MIND- But it's 5:00pm!!!!! He wouldn't take that long, would he?? OMG he's forgotten he's forgotten he's forgotten...
MY CONSCIENCE- Don't be silly. Of course he hasn't forgotten.
MY MIND- But remember, he has joked about forgetting you here before, remember? One time he was late and I thought he had forgotten & when I told him that he thought it was pretty funny?
MY CONSCIENCE- He's just late, EJ. Stop stressing. Even if he did forget you, he'd drive back and get you immediately when he realised.
MY MIND- AHA! You just admitted it! You think he's forgotten me!
MY CONSCIENCE- Oh for Gods sake EJ! Stop jumping to conclusions! I said 'even' if he did forget you, not that he did....
MY MIND- Same thing!!
MY CONSCIENCE- It is not!!! Stop arguing with me and just believe me for once, would you???
MY MIND- You know that quote, always trust your gut instinct? Well, my gut instinct is that he's forgotten me!
MY CONSCIENCE- Well....I've told you.....when he walks through that door in a minute you'll regret not listening to me.....
MY MIND- *ignoring conscience* Well, the library does have couches to sleep on....but what about food?? I might have to go in the staffroom and look in the fridge. I've got my drink bottle, so I'll be fine with water. Same with the toilets, there's school toilets. I won't be short of enterainment with all these books around...
MY CONSCIENCE- Look, out there! It's the rubbish man. If you're really that worried, go out and talk to him! Dad is friends with him, remember?
MY MIND- No!! That'd be way too embarrassing, let alone awkward!! "Oh, excuse me, I think my Dad's forgotten me. You know him....he teaches here. Could you ring him up?"
MY CONSCIENCE: You better publish this post, I think I can hear him coming...
MY MIND- Liar! He is not coming!!
MY CONSCIENCE- He has not left!!
MY MIND- The rubbish man has just left!!! And he's always the last one left at school!!!
MY CONSCIENCE- Well, he's not today, ok? Dad hasn't forgotten!
MY MIND- OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG he's forgotten he's forgotten he's forgotten
MY CONSCIENCE- Well, if all goes wrong, just dance the tango whilst eating a hamburger.
MY MIND- ..............................................................................you are weird.
MY CONSCIENCE- I'll take that as a compliment.
MY MIND- Ummm...TOTALLY STRESSING OUT HERE!!!!!
MY CONSCIENCE- Well, go look for him if you want to.
MY MIND- That's actually a good idea....but what if he isn't here? The other teachers will have a real good laugh!
MY CONSCIENCE- HEY HEY HEY LOOK! There's the rubbish man! See, he has not left so that means Dad is still here!
MY MIND- What does that prove??
MY CONSCIENCE- HEY HEY HEY LOOK! The lights are still on in the co-ordinators office!
MY MIND- Yeah, so what? Dad still could have left.
MY CONSCIENCE- I bet there's a meeting.
MY MIND- OMG OMG OMG WTF I JUST SAW 3 KIDS OUTSIDE WHO ARE THEY WHAT ARE THEY DOING HERE????????????????????????????????
MY CONSCIENCE- Calm down, calm down. There's just here for the talent quest thing tonight. Remember, School's Got Talent?
MY MIND- OMG how embarrassing!! Hey, wait a sec, if I have $5 I could actually go watch it!
MY CONSCIENCE- First, you don't have $5. Second, Dad is going to come in and drive you home.
MY MIND- OMFG OMFG OMFG it is 5:20pm!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MY CONSCIENCE- I'm not even going to bother to re-assure you, you wouldn't listen anyway.
MY MIND- Well, you got that right!
DAD- *entering the room* why hello Miss Writing In The Dark
ME- Oh, hi Dad.
DAD- I'm just packing up, I'll meet you at my desk.
MY MIND- *deeply embarrassed and ashamed of ever thinking Dad would forget me*
MY CONSCIENCE- Told you so. ;)
Heya guys. Well, turns out Dad was working on reports. Hahaha, man, now you know what I mean by having an over-active imagination!!!
