Sorry about the lack of response at the moment. I’m on another week of double shifts and keep nodding off. It’s the getting up early part that’s the killer – I can never get to sleep early enough at night so have to do it in the evening after work. In bits.
It’s only for a week this time. Next week’s double-up is my normal afternoon plus the evening so my natural body-clock can cope with that.
I’m not ignoring you, I’m just that guy who sits in the corner and smiles and never says much.
The one nobody else can see
Oh – while I’m in a brief period of wakeyness, before I try to shut this brain down for a few more hours, I saw a wonderful thing today.
In Local Shop, their shelf labels are crap. They keep getting knocked off and I find them on the floor and have to work out which bizarre item they should be stuck in front of. If I can’t I just hand them to someone else.
Anyway, I found one today beside the Easter chocolate stuff that just said ‘Hollow Bunnies’.
In real life it refers to chocolate bunnies that are hollow. In my mind it conjured a dark and cold evening around the fire, with a gnarled old grandpa telling his grandchildren, “It’s nearly Easter, children. Soon the Hollow Bunnies will come. Best stay close to home.”
I don’t have a good Easter horror tale. I will think about this during smoke-breaks tomorrow. Also during most of the rest of the day – the job is on autopilot most of the time. I could do it in my sleep.
Some days, especially on double shifts, I do.
Oh hell, now I’m not going to be able to stop thinking about this long enough to fall asleep, am I?
