As I pondered what to write about on this Tuesday, I trashed every idea that came to me. Busy life; done that…remodeling project; not relevant or entertaining…laundry; that dead horse has been beat beyond recognition and should rest in peace. I did find a funny picture I’ve had in my ‘rainy day blog’ file (it hasn’t rained in a while) but it showcases the third-grade-boy level of my sense of humor. What to do, what to do.
“Have I lost ‘it?’” I wondered. Then I laughed, because the question assumed I had ‘it’ in the first place.
The ‘it’ to which I refer, is that certain quality that makes a blog post entertaining and memorable (the absence of the word ‘interesting’ in this description is intentional. Too lofty of a goal, I’m afraid.) Entertaining is good. Enough.
True, I would love to be able to write about any subject and have people gush about its significance, like when someone tells a vocalist they can sing the phone book and it would still be captivating. It would be nice to write about something as mundane as quilting processes of 2-ply and 3-ply toilet tissue and keep everyone on the edge of their toilet seats, but that’s a tool I don’t have in my shed.
All right. Third-grade-boy humor it is. Yahoo “news” has used the same picture for two different articles – December 10th and April 5th. Cropping is a fabulous tool which would’ve prevented me from choking on my tea. I’m calling my lawyer. Oh yeah, I don’t have one…
Put on your elementary school hats – do you see anything ‘off’ in this picture?
I’m sorry this post is much like eating a bowl of cane sugar for dinner (gritty with no nutritional value whatsoever.) I’ll serve chocolate next time.
