Sooner or later, it was going to happen. I arrived home from a busy and tiring day at my university. Upon arrival, I discovered that I had left the keys to my front door in my office. With just minutes to spare, I briskly ran down the street to the condominium association office and they summoned someone to unlock the front door to my building and then allow me into our condo!
That problem resolved, it was a few minutes before the second dilemma came to mind – how in the world can I publish here tonight? The memory device that I draft my post entry on is attached to my domestic key lanyard. By this time in the evening, traffic is simply too congested for me to even contemplate driving to campus to retain the missing items. A long listing of profanity encompassed my mind!
Of course, I could wait for my spouse, Aaron, to finish his hospital shift at 11:00 p.m., drive home and then drive me into Washington, D.C. – however, it is my responsibility and not his!
I mentally debated this issue for several hours before deciding that my hectic workday was enough. Aaron’s job as nursing supervisor was frantic for him without me adding the burden of another trip back into the busy city. The world needn’t become a cumbersome load for us both due to my own incompetence!
The end result is that I will save the finalized version of “Sharing: A Bare View” for a later posting (hopefully, in just over a week from now). Instead, I’ll substitute this last minute and very frustrated posting so no one will have to wonder if I’ve indeed “lost my mind!” Truthfully, I have but that is a secret!
Please forgive my mistake. I’m going to search our small condo for my brain! Have a terrific weekend everyone!
