SCREAMING DAY

Within the 12 days of Christmas, there is one day that I celebrate every year. The date varies a little from year to year, but it is always marked with the same tradition. This is that day, the first day back to work after the Christmas break. I call it…

SCREAMING DAY

After more than a week of getting up when I want, suddenly the alarm goes off at ridiculously dark ‘O’ clock in the morning. That gets the first scream…

This day also marks the end of my Christmas dieting amnesty. So it is out of the warm bed and straight onto the cold weight scales, that have not been used in days and days of lovely foody treats and…

More screaming. Then it is time for morning coffee and find that the relaxing first hour of the day has turned into a ten-minute speed glug of caffeine. And more screaming…

Then it is a rush to find all the things that I need for work and should have put ready the night before, but didn’t. Which results in more screaming…

Then it is out into the dark morning. Realizing, that after all those days when I could snuggle up warm inside, safe from the weather, that I would be spending the rest of the day out in the cold/rain/snow/hail/wind/fourhorsemenoftheapocolipse, or whatever else the world decided to throw at me and there is more screaming…

Now it is time to battle the traffic and make it on time to work, whilst every other driver on the road has either engaged dawdle mode or idiot at the wheel mode. Result more screaming…

And I think that you have got the gist of how I celebrate this day every year. And yes, the screaming goes on all day. Although it might happen on another date, one can’t but help suspect that many others also celebrate screaming day.

HAPPY SCREAMING DAY TO ONE AND ALL

At least the screamers in this post are better looking than me, on Screaming Day. 🙂
