Daily prompt: Sorry

Daily Prompt
What’s the most surreal experience you’ve ever had?

If I’ve ever had any surreal experiences, I don’t remember them.

However there are several completely trivial and overwhelmingly mundane experiences that I HATE, and will avoid where possible because they BORE THE SOCKS OFF ME: making pastry (although it turns out it’s one of my better talents), crumbing anything, but particularly brains, and above all, cutting my nails.

Why is that the worst? Because while I haven’t crumbed anything for years (let alone brains), and now only make pastry on request, cutting my nails comes around so often I have to wonder whether it’s one of those little jokes the gods play: make ‘em grow like weeds, chaps, so we can have a laugh watching her procrastinate until she can’t type straight. And no, I don’t have manicures and pedicures (or should I say manis and pedis?). Beauty routines are for the beautiful. And probably rich.

So why am I telling you this? Because I got to the ‘can’t type straight’ stage, and since I had to stop what I was doing to deal with it, it seemed a good opportunity to stick my head above the trenches and apologise for being uncommunicative and unresponsive for so long.


I’m busy.

Obsessed in fact. Or possibly possessed.

Anything of mine that’s popped up lately is a recycle job.

Doesn’t mean I don’t love you.

Take care, be well.

    Where is the “love” button?

    One thing I hate more than cutting my nails is cutting someone else’s. 🙂

    I have such fragile nails that cutting them isn’t a problem, they tear off at the quick. I’ll trade ya! ^_^

  4. I have the same fingernail issue. My toenails annoy me so much when they are too long, I cut them immediately. I can’t stand the feeling of toenails against slippers or shoes. But the “why am I making even more typos than usual?” thing is weird. You’d think I’d notice my inability to actually feel the keys under my fingertips, wouldn’t you?

    You can come over and may pastry for me anytime, but please, do not crumb my brains. I’m having enough trouble remembering what it is I think I forgot.

  5. make pastry. MAKE not MAY

  6. I don’t think I’ve ever been “girly” enough to care about mani/pedis. When I nursed my first-born, I cut my fingernails really short, and have used that as an excuse ever since. She is 31. ☺ Van
