Too Busy

I’m a busy person. It’s a known fact, nobody has doubts about it. I never have time for small things. I’m always:

– too busy to smile to a stranger,

– too busy to take out the garbage,

– too busy to play with my children,

– too busy to learn a foreign language,

– too busy to iron my clothes,

– too busy to have lunch, or dinner, or breakfast,

– too busy to go shopping,

– too busy to cook,

– too busy to buy flowers,

– too busy to tell a joke,

– too busy to call my parents,

– too busy to be amazed,

– too busy to see a movie,

– too busy to relax on the beach,

– too busy to learn a poem,

– too busy to meet new people,

– too busy to meet old people,

– too busy to play with my dog,

– too busy to water my plants,

– too busy to write a post,

– too busy to say ‘hello’,

– too busy to reply to emails,

– too busy to sleep,

– too busy to care,

– too busy to be friendly,

– too busy to say ‘happy birthday’,

– too busy to see the doctor,

– too busy to run,

– too busy to dance,

– too busy to sing,

– too busy to know what I really like and who I am…

I suddenly open my eyes in panic. I don’t know where I am for a moment. Then I remember: I am on the porch, I fell asleep. I’m 78, I’m too busy to waste time! I have to go to… but… oh… what’s that light over there?
