Once again I woke up curled in the bottom of my empty pool

Denise Rose
 Once again I woke up curled up in the bottom of my empty pool, but at least this time I still had my clothes on.

I saw many faces looking down at me. I heard "ma'am? Ma'am can you hear me?"
It was a paramedic.
"Ma'am, don't you think you're too old to be skateboarding?"
"I do now"
They put a neck brace on my neck and strapped me to a board. Next thing I knew we
were speeding down the street. I could hear the sirens, and I could feel the oxygen tubes in my nose.

Long story short I was fine. Nothing broken except my ego. Mild concussion but that was as serious as it got. Well if you consider amnesia as "not serious" than yeah it was no big deal. I mean, I don't remember who I am. Apparently I'm a mom and have 4 kids and some sloppy husband and I live in a pig stye. I think I've seen this in a movie before. Except there are photos of me all over the house. Horrible photos! Man what is with the blonde hair?

Well, if this is the new life I've been given fine, but I'm going to make a few changes around here. First of the blonde HAS.GOT.TO.GO. Can you say "fried" ends? yuck. A new haircut is definitely in order. and clothes. My God, these clothes are atrocious. How many pairs of yoga pants does one woman need? And when was the last time she bought herself a pair of panties??? This is ridiculous.

So after a few weeks, some new threads, newly acquired credit card debt I was feeling pretty good about my new self. Then this strange thing happened. I started to get little glimpses, little memories from my former self. Every night I would have these really vivid dreams and it felt so familiar. Like deja-vu. Only in reverse. Then one morning I woke up
and I was my old self again! I remembered who I was! I was a mom! A mom to four
awesome boys and a man that I adored! I was so excited I jumped out of bed to share the good news. I caught a glimpse of my reflection.

And promptly fainted.


  1. Really I love it! Of course you woke up to how amazing your life really is!
