QTMs for 1/14/15: BY THE WAY . . .

Posted by on January 14, 2015

 

My inbox often has all the grace of a cattle roundup.  Or stampede.

I had this little jewel go galooping across my monitor one busy morning last year.  As sometimes happens, I’d already clicked ‘DELETE’ before it registered.

Wait.  What?

Coffee - trail drive7By that time I’d already branded that critter ” — NONE” and couldn’t find it.  I made up my mind.  Said, “Self?  See it again, dab a loop on that puppy and we’ll check it out.”

Self dutifully came dragging it, so here it is.  I could do some spiffing and embellishing here ‘n’ there, but I’d be more interested in your take.

After all, it’s mighty plain talk.

AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS ================================================================

CHAPTER 1    I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost… I am hopeless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.

CHAPTER 2    I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in the same place. But… it isn’t my fault.

CHAPTER 3    I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in.  It’s a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.

CHAPTER 4    I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.

CHAPTER 5    I walk down another street.

    It seems this writer has pretty much the same mental acuity that I do. I’m not the sharpest tack in the box but I do eventually figure out what I’m doing wrong & fix it.
