My Brain Is Like A Swarm Of Moths

You know how moths just zip around, banging into lightbulbs, not ever flying in a straight line, and generally looking like they've been doing tiny cans of whip-its all day and into the night? That's kind of how my brain works. 

I'm all over the place! I can't get my brain to sit STILL, dammit, and frankly, it's exhausting. I mean, just the other day, I saw that Sweetney had gotten her hair cut, and within 20 minutes, there were scissors in my tresses. Earlier, I had just settled down to watch my stories and write a new article for MamaPop, when – Wait, I have to give you the real story behind "settling down."

  • Sit on couch.
  • Get up. Turn on TV. 
  • Sit back down on couch. 
  • Get up. Pull cat off of other cat. 
  • Sit back down on couch. 
  • Get up. Make coffee. 
  • Sit back down on couch. 
  • Get up. Smoke cigarette.  
  • Sit back down on couch. 
  • Get up. Go to kitchen to fix cup of coffee. 
  • Walk back to couch.
  • Retrieve coffee cup. 
  • Go to kitchen and fix cup of coffee. 
  • Walk halfway to couch. 
  • Remember coffee cup.  
  • Retrieve coffee cup.  
  • Sit back on couch. 

How relaxing! Anyway, I had FINALLY settled in, on the couch, WITH the TV on, WITH the cup of coffee, having taken forty million years to do so, and what did I do five seconds later?

I decided to get up and work out. Of course I did. And because I love you all so much, I'm not going to go through everything that it takes to prepare to work out, work out, and recover from working out, but keep that moth imagery in the front of your mind.

Bzz bzz bzz *SMACK*

  1. You are not alone in this moth-brain of which you speak. My boyfriend is the SAME WAY! We can’t just sit down and watch a movie, or just make dinner or just do any one thing. He’s up , he’s down, he’s up, ad nauseum. Just on the way to bed he has to do like 80 million things and that’s just before the FIRST time he gets in bed. Ugh. I get it. I really, really do.
