It is just like any other day of the week. I woke up and just minded my own business. How else would I spend my day. We all need to work and make that little money we can, even if it means mindless doing the same thing over and over next to a production line.
Yeah a day like any other hot and sweaty. The skin sticky from the excreted fluids and on top of that it makes you feel dirty. The walk down the street is just as eventful.
See the cars pass by, one after another of the dark coloured VW’s. Just for a second you turn around and walk backwards. Though it can’t bother me, I am tired fro the early shift and just walk on like usual.
What else would happen on a day like this, a day like any other. Is it me wishing for something to finally happen, meet my dream girl at the next traffic lights. I must be a fool to even think of that. I am nothing special, just every day Joe, living his life in the shadows.
Occupied by silly thoughts that just come and go, I can hear a few car doors slam shut. My sight is blocked by a big van and without any more delay I just watch my feet being set in front of the other. Watching the cracks pass underneath them one at a time. To catch myself with my feet inside of the tile. Roaming mindlessly forward.
The sound of tires that rush over the black asphalt. A smell of burning rubber fills the air, while a car rushes in front of me.
My head raised unaware of anything, dumbstruck or just plain stupid, I stare down into a barrel.
The circular shape slightly scratched held in what looks like a solid steel block. the tiny grooves at the beginning of this long dark endless tunnel even got me look past it. There a serious face, frowned eyebrows and angry looking eyes stare at me.
My uneventful day just turned into something else, exciting. But then why do I wish for the trigger to be pulled. Why does my sweat not turn cold in fear.
SHOW ME YOUR HANDS!
I turn around towards the sound and find three more of them guys in blue. One of them also has his gun drawn and pointed directly at me.
I must have been gazing for minutes before complying or so it seemed. Time had come to stand still, or was stalled beyond believe. My uneventful day turned around and brought a smile to my face. Opening my hands towards the three and than turn around to the other two who came driving.
My uneventful day and I could not stop smiling. Did I say I had a smile, maybe it was a laugh. All I knew it made my day showing them what I was holding while they passed me by before.
Nothing there but a dvd I borrowed from a friend. A film to make this day worth at least a little of my time.
Just another uneventful day turned around worth living.
Any uneventful day might have something worth mentioning. Or has given you a great memory. This was just one of mine. And it stayed with me. Today was when I woke up going to be just as uneventful. But then I saw this is my 1000 blog post. Yup I reached 1000. 435 of them being ‘Thoughts of the day’.
I do not have a lot of people reading my blog but every day I do see them pass me by after reading make my day eventful and worth it. You who give me a little of your time to read my brain spills. I am thankful for each and every day I am able to write and see your smiles pass me by.
Thank you all for sticking with me and turning an uneventful day in one to remember.
Ps. The picture chosen is because nature always seems so uneventful but if we look closer there is always something happening that makes us smile.
