Tonight I decided to be different. I was trying to think of what to write and along the way, I figured maybe the people wouldn’t want to read another celebrity gossip (although the drama between Kanye and Kim Kardashian West is getting juicier by the day, or the Drake and the supermodel hot sauce incident, but then again everyone is already familiar with that) but those are stories for a different day.

Since it’s a Monday, and everyone would agree that Mondays are usually a bleh day cos we’ve just come out of the weekend and the thought of going back to work just makes us wish the weekend was a bit longer, I was at home earlier and feeling the same way. Feeling bleh.

Between handling the kids, and doing chores I felt a sudden urge to just call in sick and ask for a replacement. It wasn’t from being tired though, I was just too lazy saraga to get up and go to work. Just being in bed made me appreciate the bed even more. It felt so comfortable, so warm. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. And at this point, the sound of rain just made it tempting for me to just ditch work.

So there I was, staring at the ceiling until I noticed these two lizards going at it in one corner. Me in my head, “Man…must be nice to be displaying this kind of affection in a house they not paying bills for. Like excuse me, GET A ROOM but not my room!!”. Lmao.

And oh my goodness, something funny happened while they were fornicating. I don’t know whether it was the female lizard or the male lizard but one of them had the AUDACITY to fall off and land straight on my face. Now I’m not someone who’s afraid of lizards (I know a lot of adults who are), but EWWWWWW !!!! I jumped out of bed like my bed was on fire or something. Just the thought of these two lizards mating, and one FALLS on my face WHILE mating, made me run straight to the shower to wash my face. Urgh.

So there you go. That’s the story of how I ended up at work today. While in the shower, I figured, “You know what…I’ll just go to work since I’m already here. That small scare just gave me the energy to get my butt up. I also do not want to wait around and see if there was a second session”.

Out of all the motivational reasons that exist in the world, this one was probably the weirdest one for me. Imagine telling your co-worker, “Man friend..I was too lazy to come to work today but then I watched these two lizards doing the rumpy-pumpy and now I’m here”.

So yes…moral of the story? Just go to work friend. Don’t call in sick when you’re not. And work for that money. Or else you’ll be like those lizards. Selfish and broke.
