The Monday Morning Blessing
Where: Chez Gunther
When: any and every Monday morning
Warrior Queen arises; sunlight seeps through the curtains and crashes into her eyes.
WQ: Damn! It’s Monday! I hate Mondays!*
A sphere of bright light appears in the room. A fairy godmother-like creature (think Good Witch Glinda from The Wizard of Oz) steps out of the light which fades and disappears.
Monday Morning Fairy: Oh, Anne Marie, you mustn’t hate this day with such venom. It’s a new day with new opportunities to do good things for all of mankind!
WQ: Eff Mondays!
MMF: Oh dear! Do you kiss your husband with that potty mouth?
WQ: Mondays suck!
MMF: Now, now! We must allow the day to go forward and present itself with all its glorious promise.
WQ: Where’s my Grumpy Cat shirt?
MMF: Oh Anne Marie, maybe Monday should promise to chew you up and spit you out!
WQ: Everything about today sucks! Sucks, sucks, sucks.
MMF: You know, I could arrange for Judy Garland’s house to fall on you!
WQ: You suck!
MMF: No, you suck!
WQ: No, you suck!
MMF: No, you…
