Slice of Life 21: 6:15 on a Friday

(During March, I am blogging daily as a part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge!)  Special thanks to the hosts of the Slice of Life Challenge:  StaceyTaraDanaBetsyAnna and Beth.   More Slice of Life posts can be found at  Two Writing Teachers .

Today’s idea courtesy of Stacey under 3/20/14 “Be Inspired” with original from @MrsDay75 “8:15 on a School Day.”  

6:15 on a Friday

It’s 6:15 am
Tick, tock
Pour a cup of coffee
Tick, tock

Check the weather
Tick, tock
Check email
Tick, tock

Check my Twitter Stream.
Check for slices.
Tick, Tock


Grab the carafe
Pour a second cup
Watch the news
Begin my list
Tick, tock.

Let the dog out
Feed and water
Check my grocery list
Tonight’s the night
to grocery shop.

Start the car.
Hit defrost.
Turn up the heat
Calendar says, “spring”
The day says, “cold.”
Tick, tock.
Rinse out coffee cup,
Fill travel mug,
Brush my teeth,
Pack up and GO,
On the road,

Off to school!

Tick, tock!
