I told somebody once, “If you ever notice I don’t write a blog, it’s probably been the kind of day where my thoughts had better not be put in writing.”
But I’ve been thinking: that remark could be misinterpreted! (…Nah….)
The fact is some of my faithful readers tune in daily. (They really should just subscribe.) Anyway, if I don’t write, do they worry? Are they disappointed? Relieved? (Don’t answer that.)
Yours Truly would rest easier if I knew you folks would not assume I’m out of commission because of some pity party (possible) or attitude issue (impossible [nose grows to 4½ inches]). So, for my own peace of mind, I want to tell you a few examples of why some days I cannot even sit down to write a one-minute read:
TOP 10 REASONS LAURA DIDN’T BLOG TODAY
#10: It takes more than one minute to write a one-minute read. (I know. You’re surprised.)
#9: I spent the day scrubbing, cleaning, and laundering. (Oh wait; I do that every day.)
#8: The dog ate my homework. Or The Borrowers got it. Or I lost it. Or something.
#7: I want you to catch up on whatyououghttoknow.com (No! Don’t go! You’ll never come back!)
#6: A hundred homeless vagrants OCCUPIED my computer. (And they won’t leave.)
#5: Hubby took off work and surprised me with a day trip. (Hint-Hint)
#4: I participated in a SpongeBob SquarePants marathon. (Okay, this would never happen. Wombo!)
#3: So many exciting things happened that when I tried to capsulize it into 300 words, my brain exploded! (See #8, above.)
#2: I finally ran out of things to say. (You WISH!)
And the Number One Reason Laura Didn’t Blog Today:
#1: It’s probably been the kind of day where my thoughts had better not be put in writing.
