Sometimes I am too ill to write a blog post. Does it count if I am too depressed? I feel so self-indulgent even considering such a thing. Ooh, maybe this is a good lead.
That is what I just now posted on Facebook. Almost before I had copied and pasted it here, a friend had commented that depression IS an illness. I suppose I feel it counts for everybody but me. You know, that thing many of us do that we treat our loved ones way better than we treat ourselves. I know, a lot of people do the opposite, especially with physical indulgences. However, I know a great many people who will put themselves down using terms they would NEVER employ when talking to a friend. Just saying.
Where was I? Ah yes, trying to make a Non-Sequitur Thursday post before I hurriedly get ready for rehearsal for Steel Magnolias at Ilion Little Theatre. This is what I posted on Facebook earlier:
Here’s the problem: I have so much to do, I not only keep thinking I’m forgetting something, I keep forgetting what it was I was just about to do. Making a list does not help. I not only forget to put stuff on the list, I forget where I put the list!
To make this a true Non-Sequitur Thursday post, I should make a catchy headline that has little or nothing to do with the post. What is this post about, anyways? Not much, as is par for the course when I am involved in a show. Right now I am involved in two shows and need to finish writing two more to begin working on them within the next two weeks. Yikes! Why do I do these things to myself? Ah yes, refer to an earlier paragraph about treating others better than I treat myself. And I’m not all that freaking nice to others, either! Happy Thursday, everyone.
