So, today's Dictionary.com Word-a-Day is "obtiose." I actually deleted this one, because I figured I'd never actually use it in writing. I don't use words that are too obscure.
But I thought it summed me up pretty well: 2. Being at leisure; lazy; indolent; idle.
That's me the last few days! I haven't felt like doing much of any use. But at least it's been my own time to waste.
One of the things that bugs me is when I feel like I've had my time wasted. This summer I put a couple relationships on hold, because I did want to give the high school boyfriend thing a chance. Like good ole Ed, for instance. Ed who has written me huge emails this week, trying to cheer me up. Ed who calls me all the time and leaves me messages to tell me how fabulous and hot I am.
I really should have given Ed a little more time.
Everytime we make a choice, it's a time crapshoot. Which movie to go see, which line to stand in at the grocery store. And the thing that bugs us the most is thinking we wasted our time. That movie was no good, that line moved slower than the others.
The most invaluable commodity in life is time. You can't get it back and they can't pay you enough for it.
Now back to wasting a bit more of mine . . .
