Friday 55: Sidetracked

3 Dec


I was going to write Sunday, but there was a motivation to ponder.
Monday the werewolf dropped in (see Wednesday’s post).
Tuesday the wizard school (see Wednesday).
Thursday I accidentally deleted half my house.
Today, disk failure.
I’m not giving up. I will write today, by cellphone.
There’s a phone in my hand. Look closer. See?

    But it’s so hard to use the phone when the scenery is so great.

      That’s the truth. There’s a bayou out there I can’t tear myself away from. Nice to see you, Alice.

      I think it’s the season. Too many distractions. or maybe it was that Florida vacation

    Well, you managed to get your 55 done. Nice job, Nara!

      I never carried a phone until it could do useful things like surf the net and read e-books.

    Hi, Claudia. It was an iPhone. Would you believe it works? The stuff they can do with pixels nowadays — blows the mind.
