This made me laugh.
I was sitting here, as I do every Sunday morning with my cup of coffee in hand and laptop staring at me, wondering what I'll write for my column when this simple phrase popped up on my article information page,
Your article is desperately seeking a title.
You don't say.
I suppose I've never let a new column page sit as long as I have this morning without a title written in the title box so it let me know in no uncertain terms that something must be written. NOW.
I had no idea my column had feelings. Apparently it feels desperation. I wonder what other feelings it has? Worry? Disappointment? Joy? Relief?
Oh, believe me, yet to be written column, I am trying to think of a title. Desperately so? Maybe not, but certainly working on it.
The truth is, I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to write about. Summer approaching was one thought. An intense conversation I had with my daughter was another. relationship fears, work, at my kid's school... I mean, there's a lot to chose from.
And then, your column is desperately seeking a title pops up on the screen.
Now if only it could tell me where I put my Ipod, how to finish my book proposal, what to get my pop for Father's Day and how to explain to my daughter why Robert Downey Jr. was once in jail long before he was Iron Man.
I guess I'll just write this... Happy Memorial Day. I hope you're enjoying it with family and friends, eating yummy food, swimming in a pool or playing at the beach, staying away from malls and, most important, remembering those who are no longer with us.
I'll have a new column next week... I better start thinking of a title now.
