Don't Expect Much

Susan is currently bereft of all inspiration. Her feet hurt. She wasted twenty minutes this morning trying to find the proper necklace for her outfit. Twenty minutes.
Then she got all mad and threw stuff out.
She got her hair cut then went food shopping and bought more goat cheese. She left her notes for the substantive sex talk at work. It's scheduled for the weekend so she'll create an outline from memory.
Her neck gets in the way when she looks down. She wonders why people read a Kindle when they could read a book. She can't even keep up with her pals' blogs.

Susan, you are not boring if you use the word bereft.

I second Meg's input. Also: I find it riveting and comforting that there is another person who spends gets mad and throws stuff out after not finding the right necklace.

I feel the same way about a Kindle. I feel I will only break down and get one when they stop making books altogether. Which they will, someday. They will fall away like the record album, only to show up in ratty boxes at garage sales and snotty nosed brats will be like, "What the hell is this? Who reads books anymore?? How lame."
