I gotta be honest with you here. “Lunacy” is the best word to describe exactly what is happening with me these days.
All I really want to do is to re-post all of the lost Lunars and Lunacys. And to write new stuff. And, at the same time, to bring in a few dollars of income to pay rent by doing the couple of part-time merchandising jobs I am doing these days.
But how in the hell can any other word but “lunacy” explain what is happening. I had hours and hours of work to do late last week, and what happened? Snow and ice!
I still have that work to do. And when am I now doing it? On the day when my favorite college basketball team, UNC, plays on TV! On that same day, and at the very same time, my new favorite professional football team is playing in an NFL playoff game! In the town where I now live! Traffic will be hell on that day!
And, even if I do finish all of my work in time tomorrow, what the hell do I watch? The regular season college basketball game in which my lifelong and all time favorite team is playing or the NFL playoff game in which my new but irreverent home team is favored to make it to the Super Bowl?
Oh, to hell with it all! After writing this, I am calling Time Warner to cancel my over priced cable. Then I am emailing my bosses and telling them that the 60 inches of Charlotte snow still on the ground will prevent me from doing my work. Then I will call my landlord, claim senility and swear to the man that I had already paid the rent! Then, I will do what I really love.
Y’all know what that is.
I may suck at using words. Even the best ones.
But this lunatic loves them all!
