Speed Of Thought
It took me three minutes to cross the bridge this morning. Before I'd reached the other side I had already plunged my imaginary self over the guardrail, taken inventory of my car, and calculated ways in which I could Macgyver my way to safety. Three minutes! None of the ideas I came up with were actually feasible mind you.
But my initial inventory left me with a cell phone, a wallet, a coke can, and a tampon to work with. I had to get creative. Luckily, the stick-figure-self my brain created on short notice was light enough to fit on the gigantic tampon floating device it created later on. Which was much better than the cell-phone-crowbar it used to jimmy the window open with.
In Other News: It's my Mom's birthday today. Last night she'd resigned herself to not celebrating it this year. Fortunately, the cosmos decided to have it without her consent. Not only has she received dozens of heartfelt birthday wishes from friends and family, but she's been contacted by a college textbook company that would like to use some of her business articles in their book! How's that for a birthday present? Today's post is going to be a shorty as I catch up on everyone's blogs and get some work done. Until tomorrow!
