Taboo Word 9/12/16
It seemed like only yesterday, when I commented to my roommate at he hotel in Salt Lake City, how late it was and it was still light out. Now, it’s a little after 7pm and it is almost totally dark outside. I can hear all the buzzing of the nighttime bugs that seem to disappear during the day.
I am unable to go outside and enjoy some company with friends, like we had been doing. Now, I’m sitting here writing away, now that I’ve gotten through those 69 emails that I had this morning. And that only counts the ones that were already there when I opened my email. Others were creeping in throughout the day. I spent at least an hour, going through all the ones like Office Depot, AARP and others, unsubscribing for all the junk email so that I can do something else during the day besides reading and deleting email.
Nerd In The Brain has started the GO PLAY event and I got busy with one of the 10 point challenges, which is to draw or color something. I pulled up my chair, sharpened my pencils and started coloring. This is something I had put aside, and forgotten all about. I honestly have no clue when the last time was that I sat and colored. They tell me that it is supposed to relax me. Uh, right. I think that is something that flew out the window when I was looking away and putting the coloring books and pencils aside to collect dust, and be annoying when I needed the space for some other project I was doing.
The point I am trying to make is that I’ve been a space cadet, jumping from one thing to another, and now I run out of time during the day, and I’m unable to finish anything I start. Somewhere during the day, I thought I was at the gym . . . or was that a dream?? I guess the real point I am trying to make, is I can write a post without using the taboo word.
