This blank page is wearing me out. I have nothing to say. Rather, I have lots of things to say, but they’re all of a whiny nature & they wear me out. Well, I’ll just start writing anyway. And since you’re reading this I must have decided to hit “publish post.” Sorry!
I’m sitting at my desk at work (having worked very hard this morning if you must know) watching the flags flying outside. I can see our flags (US, Ohio & the company flag – really? The company needs a flag? It’s not our company – it’s the one that owns the building) and I can see the flags of the building next door – same drill, except they have a different company flag. The sky is really blue. The trees in the parking lot haven’t changed colors yet.
I can smell the banana on my desk (a bad sign – it’s one whiff away from being too ripe for me to enjoy it).
I can hear…silence & then tapping keys. My office is really quiet, which I guess would drive some people crazy, but I like it. I don’t even want music playing most of the time – too much constant ear traffic tends to roar in my brain & I can’t hear myself think. And, really, I need all the help I can get in that department.
I can taste the pasta I had for lunch – pretty yummy, but that was 2 hours ago. Hmm – perhaps a Listerine breath strip is in order. Yes, that’s better – not yummy, but not leftover lunch either.
I can feel that twinge in my hip that will cause me to walk like an old woman for the first few minutes when I get up from my chair. Lately I’ve been having intense flashes of pain down my thigh that make me wonder if I can walk at all. Not all the time – maybe once per day – but goodness that’s disturbing. And I know what people will say – and they will be right – EXERCISE. Well maybe I will. After I eat the banana.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey through my five senses. What are you seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting & feeling today? And do you have any extra senses? Mine is the ability to pick the most expensive item out the choices available.
