I'm Back. Did'ya Miss Me?

I really want to be witty here tonight.

It would be awesome if I could manage just a smidgen of profoundness. (Is that even a word?)

How cool would it be if I could squeeze a bit of poignancy out tonight?

Reflective or hopeful would be nice.

Sheesh.... I'd probably even settle for contemplative.

Sadly......

I got nuthin'.

I feel rather like an egg at a truck stop diner..... over fried.

I sat here tonight debating trying to post. I've been trying to think coherently enough to type more than three words for the last twenty minutes. (Guess maybe I shouldn't have taken those sleeping pills a little bit ago, huh?) The most predominant idea swirling around and around in my head has been the fact that I gave you all a deadline on watching for me. On the one hand, I asked for a rescue party to be sent out if I hadn't surfaced before Tuesday, and its always a risk to send people unprepared into Arizona. The temperatures are starting to get kinda high this time of year.

On the other hand, I also asked them to come fully stocked with chocolate. And who am I to turn down chocolate? Should even one person show up with chocolate in hand, I'd feel honor bound to relieve them of their burden. Yeah, I'm helpful like that.

I came to a compromise.

No need to send a search and rescue party. I'm here. I survived. I'm even gearing up to do it all over again this week. (My life this time of year is rather like a video on continuous loop.... over and over and over again.) Its not even Tuesday yet.

But I'll still open my door and promise to be your very best friend EVER if you show up with chocolate.

Chocolate is good. I love chocolate. I love people that give me chocolate.

You've said the magic words. I'm thinking air conditioned restaurant with mounds of chocolate goodness in front of us somewhere. And I may never leave Arizona.

I tend to relieve people of their burdens of chocolate too! Oddly enough, I did a meme yesterday and listed five snacks I enjoy... I forgot chocolate. I should be shot!

Flea said...

I was under the impression that if I sent chocolate to Arizona it would melt before it reached you. :) I'm sending chocolate thoughts.

Yes, I missed you! And i was just about to send search and rescue! Now is the time of year when memes come in handy. Answer the questions, post, rinse, lather, repeat. Just sayin ...

I have a ton of chocolate and if I had the cash I'd be on a plane to you!

You want my chocolate? I'm on a diet. I can mail it, but I think somewhere before El Paso it would melt. We're in the 80s, too.

I'd so be there with some chocolate if I could.

I would bring you some, but it would melt between here and there! (I'm not ready for warm temps yet.)

The Sports Mama said...

Aww... you all are so sweet! I would even be willing to SHARE any chocolate with you all! And trust me, that offer is extremely rare! :)

Amy said...

You said chocolate. Now I am hungry. Hungry and fresh out of chocolate.... Dangit!

If profoundness isn't a word, it should be.

Lately I can't string together enough coherent thoughts to tie my shoes, let alone post anything that great...I'm so with you on that one.

If I ever visit Arizona, I will most certainly bring chocolate. Then, even if you don't want to, you will have to open the door to me! :)
