@mrrustymonkey: * the monkey doll hears loud noises coming from somewhere outside, so he opens the door to his linen press room on #TemporalTues. *
@mrrustymonkey: * he quickly determines that it's just the #TemporalTues tent cleanup crew, picking up the remnants of yet another celebration *
@mrrustymonkey: * he turns up the volume on his #TemporalTues tv & clicks around to find his favorite old movie channel *
@mrrustymonkey: * then, he settles into one of the pillows on his parent’s big bed. This is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine. *
@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, there's a wedding event & it's really quite nice. But sometimes... I tire of sparklers & rice.
@mrrustymonkey: You see #TemporalTues, the tent rental trucks drive all over my yard! Watching their abuse is incredibly hard.
@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, the money's never enough. I wish there was some other way, to keep this old house & be able to stay.
@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, the caterers always steal spoons & they leave trash behind. We loose precious days off, our only chance to unwind.
@mrrustymonkey: And these bridesmaids #TemporalTues, with their spiked leather heels. My poor heart of pine floors...they are a pretty big deal.
@mrrustymonkey: Lock the display cases #TemporalTues! Hide the heirloom pieces! Remind me to bring them back out when this event finally ceases.
@mrrustymonkey: * paces back & forth along the #TemporalTues mezzanine, occasionally peeking out the window to see what's going on out front *
@mrrustymonkey: * notices that way down beyond the #TemporalTues fence, there is a rather mean looking woman standing on her front porch, hands on hips. *
@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, now who is that crazy, scowling old witch? Oh, it's just our neighbor down the street who continues to _itch!
@mrrustymonkey: Why did she build here #TemporalTues, near a commercially zoned home? She should creep on back North or just leave us alone!
@mrrustymonkey: If I had teeth #TemporalTues, she'd be bite #1! I'd run wild up that street & I'd have some REAL fun! ;)
@mrrustymonkey: Just imagine #TemporalTues a wild, crazed chimpanzee... run amok in this gated community! ;-)
@mrrustymonkey: * jumps up & down & lets out his loudest squeak, just for #TemporalTues. *
@mrrustymonkey: * then, he checks his own angry #TemporalTues attitude, remembering all those answers to "why" - answers that span 2 decades! *
@mrrustymonkey: We have a museum now #TemporalTues. It's a museum of our dreams. Those tourists like it too, so it seems. :)
@mrrustymonkey: So please forgive me #TemporalTues. It is once more off my chest. Besides, this event's almost over. Let's enjoy the rest.
@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, "This house is too... can't nothing bring me down."
@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, & the band still plays on... "Because I'm happy" to sing (link)
@mrrustymonkey: * wraps up in his fuzzy, blue twitterverse blanket & slips off into an almost #TemporalTues sort of dream state, because he's happy *
@mrrustymonkey: Thanks @chalkybear13. I do get stressed sometimes. Please ignore. #TemporalTues & the good Dr. @Wendell_Howe help me work it all out. :)
