I thought to myself, “This will be the day I catch up on my blog.” Regular readers may remember (or not; I do not flatter myself that my little blog holds such an important part in anybody’s consciousness) that I am still one post behind, after missing two days, um, two weeks ago? More? Less? I’m too lazy and flustered to go back and check. The point is, I realized earlier in the week that Sunday would be the perfect day to make two posts and thus be caught up, according to my rules for me. I have a matinee of Morning’s at Seven at Ilion Little Theatre at two. I can make a post before and a post afterward. IT! COULD! WORK! (That is a reference to Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein, a movie I highly recommend).
I attempted to implement the plan earlier in the day, but I sat here on WordPress and just kind of made b-b-b-b noises. Later, having exerted myself in other directions (nothing big: made a salad for my week’s lunches, made some cream-cheese-stuffed celery sticks for same, got the laundry out of the drier,did a couple other minor chores), I thought to try again. So here I am. Let the b-b-b-b noises begin!
The fact is, I am as usual these days, feeling quite flustered. Will I remember my lines? Will I remember all the other stuff: contact lenses, pantyhose, to breathe? I already forgot one thing: when I was at the grocery store earlier I meant to get grapes and pretzels for backstage snacks. They are my favorite backstage snacks: the grapes help you hydrate and the salt in the pretzels helps absorb the acids in your stomach. I suppose I have time to run back to the store, but by this hour of a Sunday it may be crowded. Oh, look, now I have another thing to dither over!
And I have a blog post of over 300 words. Maybe they are not good words. Perhaps I amused no one at all. Nah, at least somebody reading it had to be at least mildly entertained. I mean, “b-b-b-b noises” may not be comedy gold, but I find it worth a chuckle. Perhaps I flatter myself. No matter. We’ll call this Wrist to Forehead Sunday and drive on.
I wonder if I will really make another post after the play, thus becoming caught up till the next time I miss a post. A little suspense will add interest to my afternoon.
