Squidwhisperer, This Is For You
I admit, you've got a point. We're all getting a bit weary and writing things that maybe don't move us or our readers. It's true, sometimes I just want to check in with a few friends because I enjoy their company and yet I have few things important enough to share. Just another chatterbox, I guess.
But some of the things I have to deal with on a day to day basis seem surreal to me and are things I want to avoid thinking about, never mind writing about.
Stinkbugs, for example. They come in in droves because we heat with wood. They are about an inch and a half long and they are harmless, but I can't stand that they persist in flying around and then landing on my sleeve, acting as if they are a cat trying to cuddle up. You mentioned about writing about pets as getting old? Well, what about stinkbugs? Are they a common pet in your parts? This is a pet I am not proud to write about. I spend way too much time carrying them outdoors. I don't even want to write about how many I have squished either by accident or in frustration.
I will try to write something important once in a while, too. But not always. No promises, buddy.
For anyone who hasn't yet read your posts, Squidwhisperer , I recommend them as a laugh. I've sure enjoyed reading them this morning.
