Due to recession brain closes at 5pm today

Do you ever have days where you can’t sit still? You find yourself flitting from one thought to the next, unable to focus on anything for more than a few minutes at a time? Maybe it’s a bad ADHD day, or maybe it’s just that end of the week Friday feeling, but today I just can’t get in the zone.

My head feels full. I want to write, but I can’t get anything out, I can’t form my thoughts into a sensible order. I’ve been wandering around, waiting for the jumble of Things I Really Must Do to form themselves into something witty and intelligent, but they just aren’t.

So, to try and unblock myself, I’ve just started typing. Type type type. I’m hoping that if I start, something funny or thought-provoking will spill out onto the page. I’m like Winnie the Pooh when he starts with just the first line of a hum, hoping that if he sings quickly enough the rest of the lines will just follow without him having to think of them.

To be honest though, I’m not sure it’s working. I’m actually boring myself. Maybe I should stop?

No! Don’t stop, don’t stop. Keep type type typing and something good will come out eventually.

Well maybe it will, but how long might it take? If you’ve got this far I’m impressed. You are clearly a glutton for punishment. Either that or a member of my family with a sense of obligation.

*stares into space for five minutes, twiddling hair and thinking about having a little snack*

Perhaps I need to admit defeat. I have to face it – today I am just boring. It’s one of my very worst fears. I can’t stand the thought of people thinking I’m dull, but all evidence today points to a complete lack of anything engaging to say. Sorry about that. Normal service will hopefully be resumed shortly.

    You dafty! This made me smile cos I recognised myself! Hope you find your muse again soon (don’t think it’s too far away judging by this ‘boring’ amusing little piece !) x

    ha ha yes admit defeat and go and watch some terrible soap or trashy movie and give yourself the night off. My brain has been on vacation for a few days now – quite enjoying being an airhead for a few days.
