I don't actually leave on vacation until next Friday, July 7th, but yesterday my mind packed up and hit the road. Every time I try to work on something and I need a little thinking power to get the job done, my brain flat-out refuses to help. Instead it's donned in sunglasses, shorts and flip flops, carrying a bottle of sun lotion in one hand and waving bye-bye with the other. And when I yell, "Come back here. It's not vacation time yet; we need to get some work done," it responds like an unruly teenager with selective hearing.
It's gonna be a challenging day. The only thing I seem to be good at are shortcuts. How can I get this "to-do" list done faster? No one will notice if I cut corners, will they? I need time to pack.
Music always inspires me to write, but today instead of helping me find the right words, I've found the beat--ooh, listen to that tune--and the next thing I know I'm dancing around the room, dreaming of my vacation.
Too bad you don't live down the street, you could come over today and be my dancing partner---but only if you can pack to the beat!
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
