A man with a shelf of books and a curious mind is never bored. Except maybe sometimes, rarely, he might be something like bored.
I blame it on the re-vortexing of the polarity. Zero, below zero, big wind, very big wind for the impending week.
SAD? No, I don't accept SAD except as an excuse for the drug companies to sell more happy pills.
Cabin fever? No. The vehicles are running fine. The lane is clear enough. There's cash in the wallet and places where I would find a welcome.
No interest, So I'll just go ahead and use the dork word. Enervated. I may be enervated.
Possibly New Dog Libby is too. She always comes around for a comprehensive ear-scratch every hour or so. Lately it's more like every ten minutes, and I actually caught her staring out at our stray cat without emitting her death-threat growl between 70-decibel barks.
Just now she waddled over to the computer chair, stuck her head firmly on my lap, and made intense eye contact. You either understand that lab-eyes look or you don't. I do, so I made a special fuss. The ears, of course, then back and belly, then a collar check while I wiped off that tiny dab of eye drool.
She's put on some winter bulk. I decided the strap could use a little more slack.
Fumble with the adjusting slide. Drop your hands in disgust because you just heard yourself going,
"bah-dah bamba just a silly millimeter longer."
At least that led to enervation attenuation because it yielded a Big Thought, a Universal Truth: Exposure to television at a young age makes you weird forever.
