That’s the sound of today flying by.

The day after a holiday
is the w.o.r.s.t. day
for writing.

(actually,
I thought it was the BEST day.
but no one agreed with me.)

Just about everyone
who’s been on vacation
comes back and says,
OH MY! I need to CAALLLL YOU.
I need to EMAILLLLLL YOU.
I need to DO THAT THING that I haven’t done
for so, so LOOOONG
(and SHOULD have a LOOOONNNNGGG time ago),
but since it’s the day after the holiday,
I’m going to do it NOW.

And KAPOOOOWWW!
The email box blows up.
The phone is on fire.
Even the dogs are needy.

(I’m on the couch
watching the dust settle.)

maybe tomorrow
I’ll get a chance to write.
