Making Time Stand Still

One of the more flattering questions people ask me is, "Where do you find the time?" Hey, who doesn't want to be asked how they manage to be so busy? (I'm sick, I know). My answer usually involves 1) saying with a question in my voice "Uh, thanks? I guess?" or 2) making up something involving a time machine and the space time continuum.

But today I actually don't have the time. So the blog will return tomorrow. Hopefully the time machine will be done by then.

When I get the "how do you find the time question" I usually laugh it off and then think of the million things I DIDN'T do so that whatever he or she was complimenting COULD get done! It's a balancing act and you have to be good to make it look easy. : )

It was nice of you to find the time to tell us you don't have the time. =)

This is definitely a feel-good post. For me. It's like the first time I saw dust bunnies at my mother-in-law's. I no longer had to live up to the impossible. ;o)

It's that you take the time at all, Nathan.

Thanks.

Kristen said...

Very true, Dr. Love.

I can let you borrow my time machine if you want. No guarantees that it won't send you back in time to kill your grandpa's favorite dog, or forward to a tea party with the morlocks...

I can break through the space/time continuum (it's easy if you have the right size cherry tomato and a good set of cold chisles).

I already saw your Blog for tomorrow. Maybe you ought to scrap that one too. :-)

This is the second blog I've read today to reference the space-time continuum. Must be something in the air.

May your day be uber-productive!

For some reason this makes me think of an exchange I had with an acquaintance after I cooked lunch (lasagna, pasta salad, dessert, etc) for a group of actors (she was still in it -- I used to be) on a day where they had a really long rehearsal ...

Her: You made all this?
Me: I love cooking! *broad grin*
Her: *chuckles and says very snippily* You have way too much time on your hands.

No, I took time away from schoolwork and a myriad of other things to make this food for you. Blech.

Nathan, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for taking any time at all to expound upon matters. Seriously, it really does help. And your posts are fun to read, too!
