The Time Is Now

Daily Prompt is will have been having had had good! What are you saying to me?

Write a post entirely in the present tense.

I am sitting here, writing a post for Daily Prompt, and I am tired. So tired because of things that happened previously to now, which I cannot go into because flashbacks are not allowed. Aside from the LSD type of flashbacks, which I have never had since doing a crapload of LSD in Nom. This is not Vietnam, which is a country. This is Nom, a restaurant for cats that I just now opened up in my mind. Cats make reservations and then have little treats of fish and other fish and mice, and they have scratch posts for two, four and 100. What those represent, I do not currently know. I will ask the hostess, Mrs. Claws.

So I am eating and being sore from said previous things, and being tired from previouser things. And slightly less additional tiredness comes from slightly less previouser things. I am not longer at work, though, so that is good. I feel like drinking something inebriationistic. I keep making up words as I need them, because I have a big dictionary. A big, thick, pink dictionary.

In communist Russia, words look YOU up! Once upon a time is outside the scope of this post, because it all has to be present tense. Speaking of presents and tense, buying presents can often make you very tense, especially if someone has Wheel of Fortune tastes. I am taking a quiz entitled ‘Who The Fuck Do You Think You Are?’ Such a cute little quiz. I’m nearly finished, and I got…. Queen of England. Great. Now I know who I think I am. I feel so old, but at the same time, I feel like waving at everyone.

Hello! Hello! Oh, hello! Hello! I am practicing for my parade, in case I preside over one as Queen. Anyway, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I never ever repeat myself.

      It’s like you were there, except it’s like you ARE there. In the present!

      Yes, you can! Although, since I’ve given you permission, it wouldn’t be stealing, so… NO! YOU CAN’T!
