I Ain’t The Walrus
January 29, 2010



And all I could see is darkness. For opening my eyes would only bring me back to the chaos in the room.

My shoes are oceans apart. I’d flipped them off the minute I slammed myself through the door. The right side, hitting the TV tuning it into the American Idol auditions -- as if I’m not in enough pain already. The left, hidden deep beneath the obscurity of my bed. Surely I’ll find some gems while looking for it. I believe my treasured box of Geri Halliwell cutouts from 1996 are still in there.

(I was 13. Thanks for making our prepubescent years colorful, Ginger Spice.)

I’m on the chair now. My hands clasping tightly onto its legs. My feet, stomping incessantly, thumping away sounds that will surely wake the neighbors up. Not that I would regret it, though. The cretins have been on my back for the past few days themselves. While I embrace our differences in musical preference, looping the Black Eyed Peas at the volume of a jumbo jet isn’t entirely courteous. Oh there it goes again.

Yes Fergie, tonight is going to be a good night. At least until I smash the stereo.

I get off the chair and head on to the bathroom. Barely three steps on the tiles, I see there, in the mirror adjacent to the sink, the image of possibly the scariest figure I’d ever seen since Joan Rivers. How did I even get that necktie wrapped around my forehead anyway? Why am I looking like Rocky Balboa after that final, tumultuous round with Apollo Creed? That’s alright, I guess... I’m starting to talk like him already anyway. And my hair is akin to someone familiar ringside, Don King.

I’m still in my office attire. Well, partly. The buttons are all torn apart. I shouldn’t have reacted like The Hulk after losing a bet on his racehorse. This is, after all, one of the only five shirts I have for work. I suppose I’ll just have to make do with the safety pins for now. At least I’ve still got my pants on..and there you go. Sliding down right onto the drenched floor. Just what I needed. Then again, my belt has, been as loose as a politician’s promise.

Turning the tap on, filling the sink full, I drown myself into its shallow waters and try screaming within the dampened acoustics of it all. Bubbles emerge on the surface as if a group of frogs had just bawled a huge croak in unison underwater. And I lift my head rapidly gasping for breath as I again endured the painful sight in the mirror, of a now soaked –- imagine not -- Don King/Joan Rivers crossbreed who talks like Rocky Balboa. Not without a necktie on his forehead.

I tremble on to the ground, rolling into the parquet floors of the room and crawling onto my bed. Punching the pillow remains a placebo and kicking the bedposts proves to be no more fruitful than banging my head on the wall. Which is what I’m planning to do. If only I could reach the wall, first. Or lift my head, at the very least.

I guess I’ll just lay down here, on my back, close my eyes, and think of random things. I see a gnome running around a polka dot mushroom now.

Stupid bloody toothache.
