It’s not lunchtime yet, there’s still time

7 May

‘So,’ the mister says at 10.30 after I have been to the gym and we have enjoyed the first of the weekend’s computer phone calls, ‘what are your plans for today?’

‘Well,’ I say in a slightly more civil voice than I have employed as I have guided him through the use of the computer phone call technology, ‘if past weekends are anything to go by, I shall fritter the day away on the internet, until such time as I can whinge about having frittered the day away on the internet, at which point I shall begin to whinge.’

‘Yes,’ he says.

I do believe that if I were in the hands of a life coach right now there would be something about this being a critical moment when those who dream become those who achieve. There would be a question I could ask myself, a cognitive shift I could make, a dream book I could refer to. As it is, I will go and have a shower (I did get to my Friday morning circuit class this morning) and then I will make a coffee and a piece of toast, and then I will, I really will go and have a look at that short story I was once enjoying writing.

    I’m glad you fritter away your life on the internet. I am constantly reading about the masses of activity that other people blog about, while all I do is read about it whilst frittering my life away on the internet.

    Between you and me – I think they’re all freaks.

    Do you ever suspect they are actually making it all up and are really frittering away their lives on the internet? Or living on past glories?
