To talk of many things:
Of shoes – and ships—and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages –and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings.”
From “The Walrus and the Carpenter” by Lewis Carroll
So here’s the quandary regarding “time” – how do you know which one to use? I mean, I’m not talking about the old 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour or 24 hours in a day kind of thing – soooo limiting! The “time types” to which I refer are:
- This time
- That time
- Another time
- Next time
- One time
- Short time
- Long time
- Charla time— (used by family and friends; I don’t get it…)
I’ve been saying for a long time that I was planning to write a blog, sometime. A short time ago I began to pull things together, but that time, my muse went to sleep. One time, a friend said, “Just START writing.” Another time she said, “ANYTIME, now, you can make this happen by getting off Charla time (I still don’t know what that means).
So, this time, I’m really trying to do “this thing.”
When I announced to family and friends that I was going to dip my toes in the blog world, almost every one of them said, “Well, it’s about time! Seriously, I can’t wait to read it.”
And then…a pause……”But you’re not going to write about me, right”? Right…?
Ah, the rub!
