I always have to be sure to say something out loud when somebody asks me to do something. A ‘somebody’ like the husband, asking something like, “Can you please get me my phone, I left it on the table.” My tendency is often just to get up and go do the task/favor without realizing that the requestor is waiting for me to agree, to respond.
Thus, the title of this post.
I know it is is a thing from my childhood. I would rather stealthily just DO and sneak in – sneak out – task completed. Odd, huh? I think so. Not sure why I’m bringing it up but I was trying to think up a title for this post and that’s what my fingers gave me. Thought it needed explaining.
It really doesn’t have anything to do with what I started out wanting to post about!
I had to go edit/fix my prior post because I had typed “crap pies” instead of CRAB pies!! and missed it even though I swear I checked my words before I hit publish! oh well. Made me laugh, but I am embarrassed, too.
And the other thing,
With so many of my conversations with you all lovely book bloggers being on Twitter and Instagram, Facebook and Untappd, and in real life letter exchanges; especially eschewing any formal prompts since Google Reader went defunct — I just want to rejoice and thank all of you for thinking of me. *smiles*
And… I rejoice when I visit a favorite blogger after “months absence” and seeing other wonderful bloggers commenting there. I know we have built up an amazing web of love-of-books and it warms my heart.
It’s like going to a party and being surprised when other friends that you weren’t expecting show up, too.
Yep, that’s it. Do have a super dooper day.
PSS I forget already what else I was going to say, distracted by Blueberry Pie!
PSSS Oh yea, I wanted to share that I just bookmooched some books that I couldn’t find at the library and I hadn’t even checked into that site for over a year! I’m so excited to get some books in the mail! One is already on its way.
PSSSS I have a book review to write on The Year of the Flood. And I am reading a bio of Oscar Wilde that is almost atrocious. Not the subject but how it’s written.
PSSSSS We will soon be readalonging Pet Sematary. I think it will be mostly on Instagram with hashtag #gangstercats if you want to join. Ya know, if you prefer to read a scary King book only with moral support in the company of other scared King readers.
