I don’t think there will be enough coffee or middle fingers to get through today.
I got home late last night and sat down to watch a little bit of TV. On my way to couch, I told Leslie “I need to write my blog,” and she said “why not take a night off?” I disagreed with her because, well, because.
Before I knew it, an hour had gone by and it was time for bed, and I didn’t write anything. And looking back this morning, it appears that no one noticed. How could that be? Didn’t anyone miss my pearls of wisdom?
I belong to a Facebook group where a lot of the members are writing blogs. Some have a kind-of editorial calendar where they plan out what they’ll write for a week or a month ahead. For instance, wellness on Wednesday. Feel good Fridays. Me? I started that way. I planned a month ahead and had ideas for 30 days. Since then, I’ve been flying by the seat of my pants.
Some days, I just know. (“I need something hot and steamy today”…which never came about, by the way.) Other days, I sit at the dining room table after dinner and wonder what inspiration will come to me. I had no ideas for yesterday, so I just skipped a day.
I feel a bit guilty. I do. But then again, who’s keeping tabs on what I write about? Leslie is probably the only one who does…because she has to!
I met some friends for lunch today and this gave me a great idea for today’s topic. Absent-mindedness. Foolishness. Not thinking. Too busy. Crazy.
We met at IHOP and I ordered the over 55+ short stack of pancakes. I haven’t had pancakes in forever and it was quick and easy. Halfway through the stack, I needed more syrup and, without missing a beat, I reached for the coffee pot and poured it on my plate. My first thought was “wow, that syrup is watery!” And then I realized that I was now going to eat coffee-flavored pancakes.
Now, we all know how much I like coffee. But mixed with pancakes…not so much! But what was I thinking? I think I won’t do that again.
