Sedentary and Farookin’ Dull.

Clam.jpgI have often said that I use my morning walk time to mentally compose most blog entries. I never realized how true that is until my recent bacterial bout that kept me off my feet for damned near a week. Although I am now fully ambulatory and, as far as I am concerned, fully recovered, I still have a couple days’ worth of meds to take, so I am laying off morning walking until the meds are gone and I continue to feel good for a day or so post-meds.

Not walking in the morning has provided me with a bit more sleep time, but it has completely knocked the shit out whatever little creativity I have. I have temporarily lost that hour or so of mental space that almost never failed to spawn something moderately interesting or humorous to write about.

Right now, I feel about as creative as a piss-clam.

  2. Think of yourself as a piss-oyster and your ‘infection’ was just a pearl, growing, growing, growing. It’s good to clean the grill once a summer.

  3. Well, you could always post a few more stories about being in a band and stuff. Doesn’t have to be creative…they were just good stories. Or you can kick back and enjoy a bit of a break. Either way, have a great time at the Jersey fest, Jim. Look forward to seeing you again in Jekyll.

  4. You know old buddy, when you get a little older, it takes a lot longer to heal. Hope you recover soon, we have some serious drinking to do in a few days, Cat.

  5. Hope you feel top notch soon. Better to take care of yourself until you are completely well.
