What day is it?
No, I mean what day of the month is it? Don’t even tell me we’re halfway through May already! Still a couple days yet, you say? Well, good. Hate to think I’ve missed so many weeks without getting the rest a coma provides.
Truth is I’ve been so buried in Duties Of Dire Import that any activity not directly affecting my personal security and well-being have become practically nonexistent.
I’ve flaked out on numerous social engagements.
I’ve barely even glanced in the direction of VOX.
I missed DG’s birthday, for crying out loud!!!*
I even failed to call my mom on Mother’s Day.
I’m probably blowing off some appointment right now. Feels like it, anyway. Karin’s birthday is still over a month away and our anniversary has already passed, so at least it’s not life-threatening.
Sadly, none of the stuff I’ve been doing lately is in any way interesting or humorous.
Don’t believe me? Fine. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. The best material I can recall from the past several weeks consists of:
1. The most annoying (and potentially dangerous) interruption to an overworked person with ADHD is the seemingly perpetual need to urinate.
2. When your medication goes generic, it instantly becomes impossible to find the brand name version and when you inform the pharmacist you don’t want the cheaper meds, he looks at you like you have a lactating nipple on your forehead.
3. The nostalgic inclination to fire up the old black light tube you found in storage is inversely proportional to the relative number of cats you have living with you.
4. As I’ve been compiling my notes for a book I’m writing on music theory applied to guitar**, I’ve come to realize my guitar method is sort of like the Jeet Kune Do of the six-string world. If a style or technique works for me, I incorporate it, regardless of its relationship to the rest of my system.
I’m hopeful things will slow down soon and I’ll be able to dedicate more time to VOX again. Karin will be effectively jobless in a few weeks which, ironically, will make things a tad easier (at least for a little while).
Well, lunch is over and I must get back to work. Hope everyone in my ‘hood is doing well and feeling loved. Have a great day, peeps!
*It could be successfully argued this one does, in fact, affect my personal well-being.
**Right, like we need another one of those.
