The talking of the soul with itself.

I don’t like lingering. I made that pretty clear yesterday – and while it may take you 25 extra seconds, I implore you to checkout yesterday’s post (STOP LINGERING) … BUT, admittedly, there are times when I linger … and typically it’s at the exact moment when I shouldn’t. Read on …

Have you ever noticed that when you finally have the time to do the thing(s) that you day in and day out complain about not having the time to do, that you find it difficult, if not impossible, to actually begin the said task at hand? (I know all you English majors out there are squirming as you read what you dutifully want to label a run-on sentence – alas, let me remind you that just because a sentence is long doesn’t mean it’s a run on.)   

  • Like organizing the enormous box of photos that sit untouched in the loft.
  • Rearranging the pantry so all the “stuff” that is supposed to be together actually is together.
  • Loading the car up with all the crap you meant to take to Goodwill last month and at last, taking it to Goodwill.
  • Or putting DVDs into their correct, corresponding cases.
  • Taking inventory of your medicine cabinet and throwing away bottles that were set to expire on 10-15-2011
  • Or starting – finally – to read War and Peace.

It’s that stupid Murphy’s Law thing that seems to always get in my way. Damn that Murphy. Anyhoo, as I sit here contemplating a number of things that I could be doing because, for once, I have no pressing deadline to adhere to nor do I have anyone begging me to feed them, I can’t help but wonder if staring out the window at nothing but the wind isn’t perhaps the one thing that day in and day out, more people should do.

Today’s post inspired by The Daily Prompt: Lingering“Tell us about times in which you linger.” BTW, if you wanna know more about Murphy’s Law check out the hyper link … it’s really pretty interesting and then, after you read it, you can say you learned something today.
