Alternative Title: Strangers who unknowingly have a very important function in our lives.
With the “alternate title” in mind, I give you Gregory Morning!
NOT his real name, because I do NOT, in fact, know him, and probably never will!
But that’s neither here nor there.
Follow me now…
Lady J and I get up every morning at half-past the rooster’s crow in order to get to school in a timely manner.
Mind you, we are never at risk of being officially late.
However, I’ve found that if we leave after a particular point in time I’ll be stuck in traffic hell once I drop her off.
So, before the sun rises, I gently rouse Lady J—and subsequently keep her on task so that I can leave in time enough to avoid the snarl that I so dearly abhor.
Now, after Lady J has wiped the sleep from her eyes, eaten breakfast, taken a shower, brushed her teeth, gotten dressed, and packed up her grip, we’re off to the races!
Enter Gregory Morning.
A lanky uniformed fellow who walks the short distance from his house to the school that Lady J attends.
By the way, Lady J said he looks like a “Gregory.”
And so it is written into “law” that he shall always be known as Gregory 🙂
I gave him the last name “Morning” because that’s the only time of day that we see him.
Gregory, our dear friend that we do NOT know, functions as my unofficial timekeeper of sorts.
If Gregory is at the top of the hill; I’m doing good.
No traffic worries 🙂
If Gregory has made it to the traffic light, I am a bit behind.
Some traffic…Eh…it’s tolerable 😏
God forbid, if Gregory is standing at the school’s entrance, I’m SCREWED 😱
It’s traffic all the way to more traffic and then some!
I simply cannot with all that!!!
If Gregory is standing at the school door, then I immediately know to go park somewhere until the madness dies down.
Hey, it gives me time to read my e-mails, WordPress notifications and Instagram messages.
Long live Gregory!
