Pinch Me



It's the perfect time of year
Somewhere far away from here
I feel fine enough, I guess
Considering everything's a mess
There's a restaurant down the street
Where hungry people like to eat
I could walk but I'll just drive
It's colder than it looks outside
Like a dream you try to remember but it's gone
(Pinch me) Then you try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn
(I'm still asleep) When you try to see the world, beyond your front door
(Please God) Take your time, is the way I rhyme gonna make you smile
(Tell me) When you realize that a guy my size might take a while
(I'm still asleep) Just to try to figure out what all this is for
It's the perfect time of day
To throw all your cares away
Put the sprinkler on the lawn
And run through with my gym shorts on
Take a drink right from the hose
And change into some dryer clothes
Climb the stairs up to my room
Sleep away the afternoon
Like a dream you try to remember but it's gone
(Pinch me) Then you try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn
(I'm still asleep) When you try to see the world, beyond your front door
(Please God) Take your time, is the way I rhyme gonna make you smile
(Tell me) When you realize that a guy my size might take a while
(I'm still asleep) Just to try to figure out what all this is for
Pinch me, pinch me, cause I'm still asleep
Please God tell me that I'm still asleep
On an evening such as this
It's hard to tell if I exist
If I pack the car and leave this town
Who'll notice that I'm not around
I could hide out under there
I just made you say "underwear"
I could leave but I'll just stay
All my stuff's here anyway
Like a dream you try to remember but it's gone
(Pinch me) Then you try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn
(I'm still asleep) When you try to see the world, beyond your front door
(Please God) Take your time, is the way I rhyme gonna make you smile
(Tell me) When you realize that a guy my size might take a while
(I'm still asleep) Just to try to figure out what all this is for
Try to figure out what all this is for
(Pinch me) (I'm still asleep) Try to see the world beyond your front door
(Pinch me) (I'm still asleep) Try to figure out what all this is for

Chester and the 24-hour Lottery (Ch 12)

Chapter 12; Drivel Delirium Chester sat in a dusty bedroom in Neighborhood Crane looking out the window facing a large brown barn. He had barely slept the last few nights from the unfamiliar noises and quiet. He was perplexed the two bothered him. Why the quiet before a soft animal noise kept him tossing and turning, supposing living in barracks and then a trailer had accustomed his senses to reject country living. A knock on the wooden door preceded Van's entrance. She carried two cups of coffee and handed one to him with a smirk. He grimaced back, taking the much-needed shit for coffee then went back to gazing out the window. "Ask." She teased, standing to his left. "Anything new?" "Nope." Chester turned, wanting to say something rude but didn't. She looked happy. After everything they'd seen and done, he supposed a few days of hiding in a house with six people wasn't so bad. Initially, Chester had questioned why Van did not…

Joke

A man and a woman were having drinks when they got into an argument about who enjoyed sex more.
The man said, "Men obviously enjoy sex more than women. Why do you think we're so obsessed with getting laid?"
"That doesn't prove anything," the woman countered, "Think about this; when your ear itches and you stick your little finger in it, wiggle it around, and then pull it out, which feels better- your ear or your finger?"
