I'll take a walk through the soft sand.
Dip my toes into the ocean.
Let the cold water soothe me.
The sun hit my face.
The salty breeze ruffle my hair.
A perfect paradise.
Until I feel the pressure.
A pulling on my leg.
A hand reaches for me.
It's coming out of the ocean.
Time to leave my perfect fantasy.
Life has a way of interfering.
In the form of demons.
Some of our own making.
Some created by others.
This demon is rising from the ocean.
It looks a little like a pile of clothing.
I know what it is.
It's the demon of laundry.
An ever present and growing demon.
Will a stack of dishes be next?
Goodbye demons!
I'm going back to my fantasy.
I can see dolphins swimming by the shore.
See you later!
