When a daily blogger (for example, me) has had a week of stupid posts yet wants to make a post quickly so she can watch Snapped… Oh I can’t keep talking about myself in the third person for the whole post. My point is: it is Lame Post Friday. Even though I only had a three day work week this week, I am still feeling Friday, in the lame post sense of the word.
Earlier today I lost Friday. I was walking down the aisle at work thinking, “And when I come in tomorrow morning…” I really felt as if I was going to be going to work tomorrow. And when I reminded myself that I was not, I did not feel the shock of delight I felt the news deserved. What the hell, me? So I started singing (only in my head, for the benefit of my co-workers) that song about “You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling” only substituting “Friday” for “Loving.” I only got as far as those few words, though, because I don’t know that song very well.
Regular readers may remember that Lame Post Friday is traditionally the home of random observations and half-baked philosophy. I say “may” and “traditionally” because I am uncomfortably aware that recent Lame Friday Posts have just been, well, lame. Here is my observation for the day, and I think it veers into the philosophical: You will often find more peace of mind if you refrain from giving someone a piece of your mind.
And here’s a Freudian typo for good measure: I first put “peach of mind.” Would that be more fuzzy or fruity? Discuss amongst yourselves.
I see that I am over 250 words. I count that good for a foolish post, and I feel this is right up there with my silliest. Or perhaps I flatter myself. No matter. Once again, I hit Publish and hope for the best.
