A place for thought.

Flight 408 (part 4)

Leave a comment

After just a few minutes an uncomfortable moisture forms under my left arm, “Program two, Pause!” and then I re-consider, “Program two, Close!” enough is enough. I only hope I have endured the punishment long enough to keep my personal trainer at bay for a few days.

As an answer my personal trainer appears on the screen, “Your exercise program has been interrupted; would you like to continue, save for later today, or be reminded tomorrow?

“Remind me tomorrow,” it’s the best of the three horrible choices. I look at the screen and suggest, “Show me something peaceful, maybe some mountains, and a nice fresh breeze.” Trees take over the north wall and I feel cool air drifting across the room with the scent of pine, “not so much pine, please,” the please is unnecessary but I feel good about adding it. “And stop the breeze, it’s kind of cold.” It’s been a hard day, I curl up into a little ball, the sofa cuddles in around me and I fall into a peaceful, well-earned, sleep.
