Id: Huh (yawning)? Ready for what?
Ego: Work. W-o-r-k. It’s generally how you spend most of your time when you’re not on vacation like you’ve been for the past two weeks.
Id: But it’s dark out. I can’t hear the loons.
Ego: There are no loons here. It’s dark because it’s 5:30am and you promised to get back into your work out routine when you got back from the cottage.
Id: I find it exceedingly hard to believe that I promised anything that required me to be up at 5:30am.
Ego: That’s a big word for you so early on your first day back at work
Id Even if I did promise such a thing, I changed my mind. (Rolling over) I just want to go back to bed.
Ego: OK skip the workout for today; I know it’s hard to get back into the routine. You do, however, have to now jump in the shower.
Id: The what?
Ego: The shower!
Id: I’m just going to take a morning dip in the lake.
Ego: There is no lake here and no loons; c’mon hop to it.
Id: (Groan) Okay. Y’know this hot shower isn’t too bad. Actually feels pretty good!
Ego: Good. I think you’ve been in there long enough. Now, put this on.
Id: What is THAT?
Ego: It’s called a bra. Women generally wear them under their clothes – especially in a professional business setting. Sound familiar?
Id: Oh yeah. I forgot. Nasty thing. Whoa, there! Wait a minute. What are THOSE?
Ego: Pantyhose. Put them on. C’mon now, you are really dilly dallying.
Id: I am NOT putting on those hose thingies. Uh-uh. No way! Bad enough I have to wear that bra thingy after wearing a bathing suit all day for the past two weeks.
Ego: Okay, okay, never mind. It is still August after all. We’ll ease into these later. Remember though, come Labour Day, they are MANDATORY.
Id: I knew I could talk some sense into you. Okay no what? Oh yes; how nice! I see you’ve brought me my book. Is it coffee time on the dock?
Ego: Sorry. This is your DayTimer. Better check it and make sure your iPhone is synced with your Outlook Calendar and cross-referenced with your DayTimer.
Id: Stop it. You’re starting to freak me out.
Ego: Good thing Super Ego is not hear today. Here. Put your coffee in here.
Id: Too shiny! Turn it off! What is that?
Ego: It’s a travel mug, you idiot. For your coffee. Helps you make it to work on time
Super Ego: Although the way you’re acting right now, I’m not sure if we’ll get out of the garage.
Id: Who said that?! Who was that?!
Ego: Shhhhh, Super Ego! Id is not ready for you yet.
Super Ego: Okay, okay, but she’s really getting on my nerves! It’s a wonder she got a job in the first place
Ego: Super Ego! Not today! Come back some other time! Like, maybe September
Id: Can I go back to bed now?
Ego: No, we’ve made it the car. Here you go; here are the keys.
Id: What do I do with them?
Id: Ego? Are you there? Don’t leave me! I’m very fragile today.
Ego: I think you need a mental health day.
Id: I am so glad I let you hang around.
