Scrap of Fiction

I sat across from him…..the mightiest man on the earth.
Ruler supreme.
Once more up for election as Ruler of All The Conquered Earth.
Dumbest man I had had the privilege to interview.
Even now I could not fully fathom the words that I heard come from his mouth.
‘So Mr. Supreme Ruler*** please let me see if I have this correct? Your platform for becoming the Ruler of All the Conquered Earth is based on the fact that you have kept aliens from taking over our planet. Sending us all their ugly and defeated and dumbest but you put a stop to that. You quarantined them all in steel cages. In the middle of the desert? That human kind but not all human kind is more superior to the aliens? And in the tiers of human kind there are those like yourself white males of slight intelligence at the pinnacle while all others fall below?’ sarcasm dripped from my lips as the preening dictator smiled nodding his large bulbous shaped head.
****His demand to be called such. I would prefer the Painful Puce Pompadour but I need to pay my bills.***
‘That is right Krita that is right. I have done more to keep all those unwanted aliens from earth. Making them pay more taxes. Taking their homes. Moving them into the lower income areas of cities. Allow the unnecessary to kill themselves. So easy to get that done.’
My screen went blank as some bright bulb in Painful Puce Pompadour’s entourage realized the road I was beginning to lead him down. I unhooked my mic from my collar and stood.
‘Krita come have a drink with me.’
Oily voiced. Hair the deep purple brown of a new bruise brushed into what I would have described as a ’60’s beehive constructed from a few sparse hairs woven into an almost undetectable toupee. Thick fingered. Thick browed. Thick in the head.

Pain Free!

There is something marvelous about no pain.
My back/shoulder/elbow have been without pain for three weeks.
Granted I am feeling a twinge in my elbow but I know what the cause of it is and how to deal with it.
Yesterday as I was speeding around work I realized just how great I felt.
NO pain.
WICKED good mood.
LAUGHTER resounding.
SMILES on everyone’s face.
My mask yesterday was my blue one with the tongue sticking out.
It is identical to my pink just the color is different.
And as usual I was told to put my tongue back in several times.
And as usual everyone who looked at or talked to me smiled.
Save for a few but they are heartless drones who do not know how to have fun.
Gotta feel sorry for those people.
Yesterday hot flashes returned with a vengeance.
Although in part that may have been the fluffy socks that I had mistakenly worn to work.
Thought it was chillier than it was.
Dumb Jay.
Hot feet mean hotter hotness.
A couple of times I was wiping sweat from my brow.
I have gotten so good at spotting that tell tale rush of initial heat so I can get my sweater off.
When I haven’t people know.
I become increasingly redder and redder.
Then like in those old commercials where you would see temp rising higher and higher well when the red subsides I get whiter and whiter.
Bet you never thought that that was possible.
I mean how does a white girl get whiter?
How is that possible?
This is something that I have spent a long time trying to figure out.
From Spring til Fall I am in the sun and get increasingly darker and darker.
More so than anyone else in our family.
Yet while everyone remains human during the winter months I convert to an albino vampire.
I am not intending to offend either the albino or vampire communities but lordy I am worse than death warmed over.
Snow banks have more color than I do.
Wear white?
Only if I want to look like a ghost.
Pain free.
Not going to be doing any cartwheels because falling on my face would probably cause myself some hurt.
Makes a girl giddy with excitement to realize that once more there is full mobility and no pain.
No pain.
NO PAIN!
It is Thursday everyone.
Nigh on the weekend soon.
Have a terrific day all!
