Things

When I'm writing, I don't usually have a lot of problem with coming up with words, and if I do, I just go on writing and the word or a substitute usually comes to me. However, this is not case with speaking. I've always been pretty quick with words, so as my ability to come up with words quickly has changed some, it has become somewhat frustrating to me.

This is the way I envision my talking in the future. "Hey you, would mind going to that place and getting me some of those things next to the white stuff we use for a thing that's slapped together to eat and that green stuff that's crispy and the white creamy stuff that causes that weight gain? I would really appreciate it. And please get some of that stuff that bubbles and tickles that thing in the middle of the round part of you that sits on the top. I like the brown stuff best with nothing fattening and nothing that keeps you from sleeping. If you will do these things for me I will try to sew up those blue things that cover those long fat stick things on the bottom of you that are attached to your flat size 10 things used for walking."

Now some people could understand all of the above and be able to follow it. However, speaking like that isn't very satisfying, and I don't usually have to rename so many things in one paragraph. I hope I never have that much trouble. But if I do, remember to have that one thing the Bible says to have along with a lot of other things when you walk the Christian life, and treat me in that one way you're supposed to.

Thanks. QOTW

This morning, as I sat staring at the television, while little thoughts bounced through my brain, I said out loud to no one, "What was I going to think?" Usually it's "What was I going to say?"
