Friday 55-Unsettled

FRIDAY 55


 I feel like...

I have a pebble in my shoe.

One bra strap is twisted and the other keeps slipping off my shoulder.

My underwear is creeping up on me.

My socks are sagging around my ankles.

My bangs keep falling into my eyes.

My glasses keep sliding down my nose.

I am uneasy,

restless,

unsettled.

Oh yeah, those days bite. They really do.

Brian Miller said...

yeah i might be the same way as well...tomorrow is a new day

Jannie Funster said...

First off woman, fling those undies and bra to the curb!! (But if you can recommend some undies that don't end up in a wedgie, please let me know. I've been looking for years for some.)

All kidding aside, this is a great poem that spells out that edgy unsettled unbalanced feeling.

KB said...

I'm feeling a little like that today too AND my hair has gone frizzy. I hate that.

Alice Audrey said...

Except for the uneasy, restless, and unsettled, it's a perfect description of me.

Jingle said...

witty word play.
i am sure you are neat in reality.

cheers.
remarkable 55.

G-Man said...

Having met you in person Michelle,
I have to agree.....

G-Man said...

At your WORST..You are impeccable!
Loved your disheveled 55 Trini.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Know the feeling--and wait til you jam the zipper on your jeans and/or purse/coat, whatever...you've nailed a larger, more intangible lack of fit and comfort with all those very real small frustrations. Nicely imagined 55.

There's nothing I could say...

except, if you lived in my town, we'd have tea at Barista, lunch at Bluehour and drinks after work at Little Bird, at which point you'd be giggling so hysterically that you wouldn't CARE about all that stuff.

My girlfriends know how to make one of ours feel better about those kinds of days...

moondustwriter said...

each little out of place thing can be so bothersome - add them all up and ...
you described it perfectly

Ami Mattison said...

I know that feeling! Sounds like a typical day when I was first sporting those training bras! Great 55!

Belinda said...

I know those days. And what is it about bra straps that do that? Great connecting with you on days like these.

izzy said...

Oooh yes- good catch ! edgy is a good way to describe this week. Thanks.

haphazardlife said...

Times like that suck. Hold on, this too will pass.

Cricket said...

Hm. Gotcha. Obviously, I don't have the bra problem, but my nose is pouring like a little kid's, and this friggin' Mac is bouncing me beachballs. Grrr.

Nice 55, though. And I wish you an improved mood soon.

I'm not the hugest fan of St. Augustine, but one of his sayings is worth remembering, I think:

Our souls are restless until they rest in Thee.

I try to keep that in mind. Some days I even do.

Steve Isaak said...

Great vivid descriptions. Put the reader in your piece's shoes.

Logophile said...

Hey,
we match!!

Mama Zen said...

Perfect! That is exactly how it feels!

Craver Vii said...

A psalm of lament.

Monkey Man said...

That all probably makes you walk funny. Great 55.

secret agent woman said...

Yep. And tired, to boot.

Susan in the Boonies said...

Falling bra straps, creeping underwear and sagging socks just make me IRRITABLE!!!!!!!! And I'm pretty settled on that.

coopernicus said...

My advice to you, is to start drinking heavily.
And you have to listen to him. He's pre-med.

~Tim said...

Ooh, sexy baby!

Mona said...

Same here:(

gautami tripathy said...

Tomorrow is gonna be a new day!


Here is mine:

NYD said...

I get where you're at...except for the bra stap, that is. (^_-)v

Dave said...

One of those days huh Michelle? - Dave

Nick said...

"My underwear is creeping up on me" ... better than having a creep in your underwear, I should think.

clean and crazy said...

i have days like that, it means i need new underwear!!

tattytiara said...

A very quietly, very edgy piece.

Jocelyn said...

I just have to feel that you're going to come out the other side of this phase of life with something golden--a proper payoff for all the ebbs and flows and scritches and scratches that have been scrabbling at your wellbeing this last year. Damn.
