Vetting Morning

The first thing I like to do when I wake up is vet the morning.

What day are you? Are you sure?

What do you remember about last night? Do you remember your dreams? What about yesterday? Aha. Got you on yesterday.

What’s your weather like? Which leads me to my first song of the day…Days may be cloudy or sunny, you’re in or you’re out of the money…I’m gonna love you, come rain or come shine. Of course you are. That’s what you always say first thing in the morning about your weather and btw, you’re no Sarah Vaughan or Sinatra.

What’s that? No, you can’t ask any questions or make any comments on your own.

What? What? Did you say GOOD? Especially that one.

Whatever you do, don’t say good to me yet. I don’t know you from Adam’s house cat. You may be good – you may not be good. So don’t get started with GOOD before I am ready to make that call.

So far, I’m unimpressed.

    And now back to “Sundays with Sinatra.”
