Tuesday

The Day I Met Abraham Lincoln

The day I met Abraham Lincoln, was a Tuesday. I think it was a Tuesday. No. Wait, it was a Wednesday because it was a laundry day. So, the missus wouldn't let me whitewash the fence as I planned.

Wednesday in April. No. Wait, not April. It was May because the zinnias were in full bloom. I remember seeing the white, yellow, orange, red, purple blooms spread across the fields.

So, it was Wednesday the 14th of May. No. Wait. It couldn't have been the 14th. On the 14th, we were building the new firehouse. The 15th we went to visit Abuelita. Or was it the week after?

The 21st week we hunted the rogue bear that was spooking and killing the livestock. So, it was the 25th. Yes. It was Wednesday April 25th, the day that I met Abraham Lincoln.

  1. I'm glad you finally got that right. If you had said four score and seven years ago I wouldn't have believed you.

  5. Wait... are you SURE it was the 25th? My spidey senses tell me it might have been the 26th.

  6. Are you sure that was the day you met Abe? I thought that was the day of your George Washington meeting.

    1. No, the day I met Washington was the day I started planting cherry trees

  8. No, wait a minute. The rogue bear was in MARCH. It was the rogue wolf in May. And the heard of stampeding elephants in June. :-)

  11. I'm pretty sure it wasn't then that you met him, but I could be wrong, too.

  12. It's always fun to see where stream-of-consciousness writing takes you, isn't it? By the way, where in the world is that image from? Was there some weird Abe Lincoln edition of the Avengers or something?

    1. If I remember correctly there is an Lincoln superhero character from a mirror type universe.
