Big Words for Mother’s Day
Some folks have accused me of using “big words” deliberately. I never thought of myself as somebody who uses “big” or any words for that matter, deliberately. I would say I’m more “pensive” than I am deliberate but, perhaps, that’s just my perception. I do know I wish I had a better active vocabulary and envy folks who can write really well.
Speaking of folks who can write really well, I ran into Adam recently. He’s an old friend from my younger days. He’s now working as a writer in LA and it was kind of interesting to find out what and how he’s doing. When we were younger, we used to go sit by the railroad tracks and speculate about stories we could write, formulate plans for getting published, or working in the literary community. I, of course, was not cut out for this path in life (as you can tell, I’m not really a very adept writer.) But Adam, he was charmed. He made it to the other side. With, at least part of his soul intact, he crossed the boundary of his own wild imagination and emerged from the other side, with dreams in tow. I’m so happy for him, as he had quite a troubled start in life, he’s talented, and he deserves all his newfound fame and glory. Adam, if you are reading this, you rock, buddy. Go get ’em and I wish you all the best during sweeps week.
This weekend is Mother’s day and I’ve no clue as to what to get Mom. Actually, I have an idea of what I want to get, but I’m not certain as to her reaction. I’m afraid to get Mom something she won’t like. She is, afterall, Mom and we only get one of those. I wish I could get her Adam’s latest book, but I’ll have to pass on that (maybe someday, eh, Adam?)
I’m supposed to go to Happy Hour shortly so this blog will be rather more hurried than usual, but none the less amusing, I suppose. I bet it’ll get a lot better AFTER happy hour, but you’ll just have to wait and see about that. After is a small word, isn’t it?
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
