Current Project: The Baby's Bodyguard (actually, there is no official title)
Status: waiting to hear on proposal
I have been sitting here for the past hour trying to think of something to blog about. My brain is either a bowl of Malt-O-Wheat or a vast sky or an endless desert or a bottomless and empty well. In other words, there's nothing up there. Nothing. I can think of NOTHING to blog about so I am taking a free day.
I think this is the first time I have evoked this privilege. I think we should all have this option at least once.
I know this is a chicken's way out. I have excuses, plenty of them, but unlike some naughty child in school spewing forth one excuse after another, I am going to be a grown-up about this. I'm not going to mention the fact we had a wheel blow out on our vacation or that we had to change it on a steep highway with no shoulder thanks to fifteen miles of guardrail and with big old trucks coming down doing ninety miles an hour or that I tripped on the spare and fell ass over appetite to the road and just missed getting squashed (no doubt jarring my poor little brain, emptying it of all the fantastic blog subjects I had up until that very moment.)
Nope, I'm taking the high road.
If you have something important, funny, silly, goofy, profound or anything else you would like to put in the comment section, I will bless your little heart forever. Hey, maybe what I can't do alone, we could all do together! Group hug!!! Let's see -- we grew up being told that idle minds are the devil's workshop. I profoundly disagree with this. Idle minds are imagination's playground. In fact, I think children today have too much going on. I think they need some idle time to reflect on their lives and think of stuff like stories. (I may have just discovered a blog subject...)
When was the last time you were bored? Did something good come from it?
