Say Whaa, Whaa?

Like many, I have a busy mind.  A very, VERY busy mind.  Unfortunately, while this lovely mind of mine is zipping around telling me this grand thought and speaking of that profound notion … all I hear is the adult voice that also plagued Charlie Brown — Whaa whaa, Whaa whaa, Whaa whaaah.

I don’t hear, sit up straight, eat your vegetables, hey, let’s go walk that thirty minutes on the treadmill.  I only hear, Whaa whaa, Whaa whaa, Whaa whaaah.

I don’t hear, write, write write.  I only hear, Whaa whaa, Whaa whaa, Whaa whaaa.

But I have a number of good reasons for being deaf to my better angels.  Truly.  Thousands of good reasons.  Here are only a few of my myriad excuses:

  1. It’s summer in Phoenix.  No one is expected to actually DO anything in Phoenix during the summer.
  2. It’s winter in Phoenix.  No one is expected to actually WORK when the weather is so beautiful.
  3. I clearly announced that my diet starts tomorrow.
  4. My feet hurt.
  5. My hair is too tight for my head.
  6. What?
  7. But I LOVE [fill in the blank].
  8. Are you gonna eat that?
  9. But my fingers are too puffy to type.
  10. I was just gonna get to that … honest … really.

Feel free to borrow any reason you’d like … or add your own to the list.  Anything to quiet that noisy, insistent, rambling, incessant, really-it’s-good-for-you …

… Whaa whaa, Whaa whaa, Whaa whaaah.
