Game Delay

Yesterday was a scheduled day off from the rigors of the cheese shop. I woke up anticipating a morning dedicated to my mushrooming scribe and after brewing a brilliant cup of strong coffee, I sat down at the computer. Though my major project, on which I have written approximately 500 words in the last week beckoned, no, make that, hollered at me, I picked up where I left off on my next South Shore Living Post. Writing for SSL is kind of a loosey-goosey arrangement; but I promised a post every two weeks and darn if I’m going to miss a deadline. So, though my inclination pulled me elsewhere, I waded back in like a wrestler and picked up my opponent, spun him over the head and slammed him on the floor. Then I lost my grip and found myself head-locked by the competition.

That sums up how I feel with the SSL topic I have chosen; like I’m dancing on rubber mats, trying to get a clinch on this piece. For a few minutes, it’s in my grasp so I squeeze and wrap my leg around it trying to trip it to the ground, but just when I get close; it maneuvers a foot behind me and forces me down instead.

We were at a stalemate when the phone rang—the Doctor’s office calling me to remind me of an  appointment I was already late for and telling me if I rushed right down, they’d see me anyway.

Whew. Match called as a result of darkness. We resume play again today, when if all goes as planned, I'll finally pin that sucker.

Gee, I wish I had an article to let you use so you don't have to get down on the floor. God knows, I couldn't get up.

How about the benefits of rubbing sea water on your face every day?
Cleanses, tightens pores, makes you look 10 years younger, or like Joan Rivers, whichever you prefer.

Ha! I know that feeling! Trouble is, I'm a much bigger wimp than you and when faced with a similar opponent I often just hide behind the sofa!

At least you're putting forth the effort that it takes to do the fighting- with humor no less! LOL

I'm sure you'll wrestle your posts into submission. Good luck, and hope your doc appt went okay!

Helen Ginger said...

May I suggest that instead of a winner-take-all wrestling match, you instead sit down and talk to SSL? Maybe SSL just wants to go in a different direction.

I've no doubt you'll pin it. You are one determined lady!

Well, for all the exertion, I sure hope you were able to get a grip and write that sucker!

Good luck pinning the sucker!

"After all, tomorrow is another day"....at times like that, I resort to Scarlett O'Hara. It works :)

Can be tricky to write when something else is calling you away, especially a manuscript. That often happens to me when I'm blogging...

Hope that sucker's toast! But, like the commenter above, I'm a Scarlett devotee: After all tomorrow's another day."
