Last night I was so very clever with a punchline to a conversation my beau and I had. It was so clever, it was going to be today’s blog. And darned if I can remember the witty conversation. So, all I can say is, “blah, blah, blah, giggle, giggle, . . . (and my witty remark was) “Well, that’s nothing; Elvis is running for office.”
Ha ha ha. Anyway, yes, there is a guy running for a congressional seat in Arkansas, and his name is Elvis D. Presley. You can read about it HERE, via UPI. This is not my endorsement.
What I learned from my forgetting the meat of our conversation last night that preceded my punchline, is that I need to jot down notes, just as I do when I’m in the process of reading books to review, or my ideas on writing poetry and short stories. The ol’ brain just doesn’t recall everything, especially when there’s more going on here at The Oasis than usual this month.
We are getting our backyard prepared for landscaping, and with that excitement and being tired at the end of the day is all the more reason to always have paper and pen to jot down notes, thoughts, and grocery lists. And something else, I just don’t remember what. Oh, yeah, my witty remarks. Crazy, isn’t it?
I’m NOT chalking it up to getting older. No way, no how.
Hope your day goes well and that you remember, ummmm, something.
