Concerning false starts and heat rash

It’s 110 degrees outside right now.  You’d think I’d be used to it, as my quasi-indigenous upbringing would allow me to move past an attitudinal Jurassic age and just let Lethargus Rex go extinct.

But I don’t.  I’m laying about like some demotivated manatee.

I started to follow-up on my previously-alluded-to “reader’s block” affliction, but I demurred.

I stated to write about two 90-plus years-old men that managed to show up to Omaha Beach on June 6 in the most unlikely of ways, and then draw a scathing comparison of them to the beta-male, brace-wearing, I-just-sustained-an-OJI-from-trying-to-jump-on-the-gravy-train redshirt consortium in which I find myself these days.

But I twisted a hoof when the gate dropped.

Then it hit me.  I’ve already sat around for hours, noodling Adobe After Effects, and in reality, crafting a veritable celluloid metaphor for this entire, appallingly anemic post:

And we’ll leave it at that.

    Hmm… Maybe it’s something in the space-time fabric.

    It hit the 80’s here in Vermont, yesterday, and I went running after work. After running all winter in anything from 20’s to single-digits below zero, the heat and humidity are eating my lunch. I felt horrible by the time I got home (yes, I hydrated along the way) and lost all motivation to do much of anything except watch YouTube videos of guitarists I like. Today, on my day off, I slept in most of the morning and I am trying to motivate myself to do something productive with the day. I haven’t had too much success yet, and the day is half gone…

    Thanks for giving me someone (you!) to vicariously commiserate with.

    • No worries, bro! Thanks for pitching in over here!

        Well, given my predilection towards verbal and written communication, I could probably dominate the “Comments” section of your blog. I will try not to do that. I had to discipline myself not to dominate the discussion portion of classes I took. For one class I purposely chose to not say much the entire semester. I still contributed, though just not as much as usual. It was a good exercise in verbal discipline for me. I have tried to be a better listener, but I’m afraid I’m not always good at keeping my mouth shut.
