How long and how far does bedtime take?

Tonight I face booked about…

The particular-ness of a certain member of my family has lead me to take on either the persona of a robot, or silver service waitress in order to make light of his masters incessant, irrationally specific demands.
4 stories, 3 fun mum charm incentives, 2 toilet visits, 1 yellow car, no i mean red car requests later,

Despite having gone the extra mile, might as well be a half marathon, still get the same result. The 'its bedtime now' battle always end in tears. Forget fairy tale endings, more like fairly testing failings. Nevertheless, after Mr Bounce bounced off and banged into Mr Bump, as for Mr Nonsense, he didn't get a look in as Mr Fussy overruled the narrative again, and that was that; fussy old fusspot!

So without further a do, Little Miss Frazzled speed read the final pages, put the book 's' back on the heap of kid carnage and enforced an 'unrequited' kiss on the cheek.
Finally, shutting the door behind her, Little Miss Frazzled, retreated back to her glass of wine and wired herself back into her machine, to find her virtual reality persona there waiting for her, all over again.
