Well I’m baaaaaack!! (Waves fervently hello). I KNOW, right? You had it on your calendar that I would be returning this week, didn’t you? (Looks expectantly, out there, to the great interweb audience in the sky.)
I am staring at this screen like for some reason the words are going to come jumping out at me.
My goodness, the words are so not jumping.
This writing thing? It’s not like riding a bike. You have to keep at it, or the words just slump around, like surly teenagers.
Me: Hey kids! How are you? Anyone wanna snack? I’ve got Teddy Grahams.
Words: *eye roll*
Me: Sooooo, how was your day?
Me: So… anything else you want to share? I can’t write a blog that’s monosyllabic.
Words: *eye roll*
Me: YOUR FACE IS GONNA STICK THAT WAY AND YES I KNOW “OK” IS NOT MONOSYLLABIC.
Words: *mutters and slouches off*
Me: Ok, well, bye! Love you! Bye! I’ll be here, uh, waiting for actual interaction.
I missed writing. I missed it so much that I kind of forgot how to do it. That’s what happens when you love something and you don’t do it for a while. The love gets all smushed up and then it feels sad and it wanders off and forgets it exists.
Ok, that might be a bit over the top, but writing with sublety has never really been my thing.
So, I’m going to go and try to find some way to get the words to stop playing video games and saying things like, “Like whatever.” and shrugging so much they might pinch a nerve.
I’m going to keep at this, and hopefully the next post will be more inspired. It won’t be Pulitzer worthy, but it will be something.
Something to share, and something to spread a little laughter, and something that hopefully, HOPEFULLY, gives your day a little extra light. Because, that is my thing.
Words: Uh… little help?
Me: What’s wrong? Why are you walking funny?
Words: I over-shrugged. I did it too long and now…
Me: It’s stuck that way?
Words: It’s stuck that way.
