Has this ever happened to you?
I could talk about writing. Everyone else is talking about writing. But I don't feel like talking about writing.
So I'm going to talk about something else. In fact, I'm going to talk about something that happened to me this morning.
The last few weeks, things have been rather hectic for me, the result being that there's been more than a bit of sleep deprivation in my life. So this morning, since I had an interview to do at noon (with Ashley, a very nice young lady from the Daily Texan) and I wanted to be able to form coherent sentences, after I dropped my kids off, I did NOT go and write. Which is highly unusual.
Instead, I went home, took a bath, read a book, and set the alarm clock for a reasonable time in case I fell asleep.
Well, the alarm went off, I got up, blew my hair dry, got dressed, couldn't find my keys, discovered the rabbit had fleas, and then accidentally left the front door open.
And then the alarm went off, and I woke up.
Now, maybe it's just me, but personally, I think life is busy enough that I deserve a little downtime when I close my eyes. I mean, you'd think my subconscious could throw a dragon or two in there, or maybe a trip to the south of France. Or at least a hunky guy in a kilt.
But no, I get lost keys and fleas.
If only there was someone I could complain to...
