A Lazybone’s Gratitude

100 word story: Idiot celebrates the completion of her first jobless month

‘Personal-Room’ at it’s happiest (Source: Me!)

Idiot completes a month of joblessness.

“How do you feel today?” — She thrusts the mic at a mirror.

Idiot-In-Mirror: “Grateful.”

“To hubby, ‘coz he now has to make ends meet?”

“Na, to room… Personal-Room.”

Idiot gives a long hard stare to her mirror counterpart. She should’ve seen it coming.

She ends up dusting, sweeping and mopping Personal-Room until the latter beams like Baby-Idiot fresh out of bath; every hair combed neatly into place.

Gratitude, she muses, is powerful indeed.

How else do you thank a good room that asks for nothing, but quietly stops the world from chomping up your thought-noodles?
