Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Wednesday June 3, 2015. The temperature is 62.8°F and the humidity is 80% at 5:41 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 mph with gusts of 2.2 mph. It was overcast and dawning when I stuck my head out. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 75° today.
The visit with my mother-in-law went well. We took her to the dentist. Unfortunately, he found and infected tooth that will have to be pulled. She was relieved, expecting two or three. The dentist moved to this office a while ago, but this is the same office—different dentist—where Mr. Siduri had his wisdom teeth pulled when he got out of high school.
I gave up on the Piers Anthony books I was reading. The puns I could wade through, but the dirty old man stuff just got to be overwhelming. What a creep. But people are buying and reading his stuff. I don’t consider myself a prude, but how could they overlook this stuff?
I’ve come up with a fairy tale that shouldn’t take me long to write (relatively speaking), based on an old fairy tale. I want to submit it to a contest. I thought I could get the bare bones of it done in an afternoon, so I sat down to write. Mr. Siduri, who knew what I was doing, kept asking me for help at certain points with his projects. I couldn’t very well say no. But the interruptions were about 10-15 minutes apart. I got about two pages done. Monday was the fiasco with the drive that was cancelled, followed by a bout of, um, traveler’s complaint, and yesterday was taken up with the trip to his mother’s. So today, I try again. Plus, today and tomorrow are set aside for Examiner reviews. I’ll be having to get up early—much earlier than I did today—to accomplish that.
The contest deadline is July 15th, so I’ll know pretty quickly if nothing comes of that.
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
