Mission- 36 - Purchase a Live Rooster for my Alarm Clock

"I'm a terrible person in the mornings, that image you get of the girl who dances around singing to birds to the tune of 'Oh What a Beautiful Morning'... well that's not me."

I haven’t watched a movie in such a long time… I can’t remember the last time I mixed popcorn and ‘Smarties’ together and silently threw it at unsuspected movie watchers. Those were the days… the days of holding someone’s hand… the days of sipping ‘Slush Puppies’ and spilling the blue liquid all over your white top… the days of smelling stinky feet that were wafting from the inconsiderate prop behind you.

Last weekend I decided to experience ‘Avatar’ 3D and I was so taken back not just by the movie but by the talent these people have who created it. In this technological advanced era, our world is so full of incredible experiences that captivates us and draws us into other worlds that might not have been known. I think sometimes we are all so involved with our everyday routines and comfort zones that we don’t always acknowledge the capabilities that are at hand today. There I was sitting in a once movie theatre only to be brought into a movie that I could almost touch or feel (ok this is sounding dodgy… hehe). Imagine what Handy Cams could become someday? Would I be able to film one of my experiences and you could watch it in 3D as if you were there with me jumping off a waterfall? Amazing!

This one is a little out of my league… let’s just say it’s more for ‘Old McDonald’. (~Rooster crows~)

Little MMI- Mission- 36- Purchase a Live Rooster for my Alarm Clock

I’m a terrible person in the mornings, that image you get of the girl who dances around singing to birds to the tune of ‘Oh What a Beautiful Morning’… well that’s not me. Ever heard of the saying, “just another 5 minutes”? I think that’s my common phrase at first light! You could tickle my feet… you could bang frying pans… open the curtains… throw cold water on me and I’d still just want another 5 minutes. It’s almost like something in my intellectual brain convinces me that another 5 minutes will mean that I will either be refreshed or revitalized or that my prince charming will finally come to save me in the land of clouds and bears.

I don’t have any enemies… actually there’s very little that can somewhat irritate me but when that alarm on that silly wireless communication device starts jittering, I try and think of 100 ways to destroy that useless, annoying, pocket fitting, radiation wave transmitting, talking, ringtone thingy. It’s like taking nails to the blackboard… it drives me insane.

If I had to be woken up with something more naturous (it’s my new word… naturous meaning nature in content), I perhaps would be a better person. So I have decided with much consideration that I Little MMI… a.k.a. Little Miss Mission Impossible is going to purchase a rooster. He will naturally crow and squawk to get me up in the mornings. He will rise where no other mobile has gone… he will be without a ‘snooze’ button.

What would my neighbours think? How exactly do you find a rooster in a city?

Pace Yourselves!
