What E-Mail Has Reduced Me To

Often in the shower people get epiphanies - great ideas, mental breakthroughs, all that kind of jazz. I'm one of those people, and my only disappointment is that those flashes don't often last much longer than the steam on the mirror.

Well, I was shampooing my hair today, and my head did one of those tilts. You know the kind; your head tilts to one side, your eyebrows knot up with all the force of whatever it is that has suddenly hit you. This isn't an epiphany look, really: the eyes generally open wide, and the head comes up when the ol' lightbulb comes on. No, this is a different sort of look, generally indicating that something odd is afoot.

And something odd was afoot! Because while I was massaging my scalp like the bottle indicates I should do (well, probably; I haven't actually read this one, but I've read plenty in the past - really gripping, shampoo bottles), I realized -

- that I'd mixed up the return address and mailing address on a letter I'd sent off a few minutes earlier. I was all kinds of proud of myself putting my pennies and dimes into the little machine in the front lobby of the post office, and I thought myself a clever girl indeed when I slipped it into one of the blue mailboxes on the sidewalk on my way back to my apartment. What I'd failed to notice, however, was that I'd been so upset the other day as I was prepping the letter for all of these festivities, that I just filled in addresses and zip codes willy nilly.

So needless to say I'm expecting mail tomorrow. I'm sure the handwriting on the envelope will be very familiar indeed.

I often get epiphanies in the shower, as well. But they are usually about how sexy my body is. That was really, actually a very disturbing comment. But I am leaving it up so that every one who reads your blog can experience the shudder that just went through me.

There is a post on my blog JUST for you.

First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question
in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

What і dоn't realize is actually how you are no longer really much more smartly-appreciated than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You understand therefore considerably when it comes to this matter, made me in my view consider it from numerous numerous angles. Its like women and men aren't fascinated
unless it's one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. At all times care for it up!
