I’ll let you in on a secret. Sometimes I write these blogs in advance. Yes, a lot of the time I write them the morning that I post them, but I like to get a little ahead sometimes and write one that I can post any old time.
I’m writing this one on Saturday morning, December 20th. It’s a quarter after seven. The corner of happy and healthy (Walgreens/Covington) isn’t even open yet.
It doesn’t matter that it’s not open. Yesterday (Friday), I planned my day out for today. I don’t have to go anywhere—don’t have to even put my pants on if I don’t want to. Just so you know, my pants are on.
I like days like this. I like days when I don’t have to open my apartment door and deal with anybody. I know damn well that a part of me can be very antisocial. I like that in myself.
This day, this Saturday, will be a writing day for me. I’ve got a CityBeat column I want to get started on and I’m also proofreading the first half of the novel I’m writing. I’m over 13,000 words into it and I’m liking it. That’s a good sign.
I’ll play my mandolin later and will also read. I do both of these things every day—not just on Saturday.
Now, I can run this blog post any old time, but I think you’ll probably be reading this on Monday. That’s my guess.
(I know the graphic doesn’t really go with the post and on Monday I may care but on this Saturday, I don’t. It’s from WordPress)
