241. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Sunday, April 29th, 9:00am
Andrea and Lacey


Andrea: So this person, right? Sits beside me on the bus last night after work and, like, asks me out for coffee.

Lacey: Uh huh.

Andrea: And when I say no, I’m, like, just gonna go home and put my feet up? This person tells me they give fantastic foot rubs.

Lacey: So you said no … obviously?

Andrea: I don’t even know if it was a guy or a girl! I’m not taking a girl home with me! Even if she’s like the best foot rubber on the planet!

Lacey: What if it was–

Andrea: A guy? (bites lip, thinking) Then I screwed myself out of a good night.

Lacey: You gotta meet this person on the bus again.

Andrea: I gotta meet this person on the bus again.


Next stop: Monday, April 30th, 5:00pm

#SoCS – Yes

Why do so many of us find it hard to say no? Saying yes seems to be what overextends me. Sure, I can do that. Let me help you. Gah! I never get my own stuff done.

And I have stuff. I have loads of stuff. Tons of it. And all of it needs to be done. I am getting little bits of stuff done here and there. I managed to get some rewriting done on the beginning of my upcoming book. Looks now like it’ll be published in June. I’ll try for the 27th – one year from the date the last one came out. So much for six months between releases.

Hey, a heads-up. I have a book blog tour for The Magician’s Curse running for ten days starting April 30th, so you’ll probably be sick of hearing about it by the 9th of May. But I do plan to put it on sale, so there’s that.

OH, one thing I did manage to get done was I phoned the company who manufactured my smoke alarms. They’re going to replace them for free. Now I just have to not start a fire in my house between now and the time they show up in the mail. I can do that, right? I can say no to fire.

Well, it’s officially Sunday here now, so I suppose I should stop writing my Stream of Consciousness Saturday post. If you’d like to join in (late, like me) or just read all the other entries, click the following link: It’s fun!
