“I would just like to publicly announce that I have no idea what I’m doing.”
For a long time I lived my life trying to do the “right” thing. It took a lot of weighing and measuring. I finally realized that the “right” thing for me was more often than not behaviors that other people might approve of. Sorry about ending the sentence with a preposition.
As I move on I’m more aware of my motives. Am I doing this (whatever this is) because I enjoy doing this, because I’ll be seen as a good person, or because I’ll appear normal. Good luck with that last one!
The other day, at the end of a hot summer weekend, it was time to serve dinner. We were in a mega store picking up a few items and passed some bins of melons. It was a perfect day for melons. And Sorbet. Lemon, please. They didn’t have lemon so I settled on raspberry.
My dinner consisted of two kinds of melon topped with raspberry sorbet. My husband settled on a large bowl of watermelon chunks followed by a pint of Cherry Garcia. Dinner time was cool and tasty and lovely. We pushed aside thoughts of well-balanced and functioning as responsible adults. The earth continued to spin.
Note to self: Remember for next time that a sudden, huge influx of fruit does amazing thing to the digestive system. I had an interesting day after the fruit feast. When my husband gets home I’ll have to ask him how his day went.
