|This isn't us - but you get the idea!|
I never know where or when a great essay topic will strike. I make sure to keep a journal and lighted pen next to my bed – “just in case”. Yet another inspiration for an essay came to me via The Writer’s Almanac. Are you familiar with this website? Each day there is a poem and several little nutshell essays on notable birthdays and happenings for that date. There is also often a quote from the birthday boy or girl. The quote for January 20th was from George Burns: "Too bad that all the people that know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair."
How true that is! I have to do an LOL here. I can picture myself and three gal pals – the Brit Chick, the Southern Chick, the Fat Chick (that would be me!) and our little Chiclet - doing our thing in the pool at six o’clock in the morning, water walking and talking, exercising our jaws as we solved the problems of the world. If only they would listen to us!
Right? Of course right!
