Just Jot it January: January 7

Today’s prompt “brought to you by the lovely Ruth, is “Indelible.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Ruth at her blog, “Image and Word” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://imageandword.wordpress.com/” (https://lindaghill.com/2018/01/07/jusjojan-daily-prompt-january-7th-2018/)  These Jots are not only my 500-words a day challenge, but also part of my  Ultimate Blogging Challenge challenge (http://ultimateblogchallenge.com).

Indelible!

So, the 500 word challenge prompt asks me to write something I wish someone would have told me in the past.  And the Just Jot challenge word is Indelible.  I’m not really sure what someone could have told me at some point in my past that would have had anything to do with indelibility.  Perhaps if someone had reminded me that I should look at the markers by the whiteboard to make sure that they were actually whiteboard markers, I wouldn’t have trashed the whiteboard.  But, you know, I blame the person who left those markers there.  I mean, what were they thinking?  And why did they have indelible markers out next to the whiteboard?

I also wish someone had told me not to worry so much about stupid things I’ve done in the past.  Why is it those things are the ones that become indelible in that memory I talked about last week?  Things that, when you wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason, keep you from falling back asleep because your mind goes over, and over, and over them until you just decide, hell, I might as well get up and get something done ‘cause I’m not falling asleep again any time soon.  And why does this always happen on Sunday night when I have to get up early again on Monday?

Speaking of indelibility, Carol Burnett is on the Golden Globes right now.  Now, she is indelible.  I remember watching her show back in the day when I was but an infant, and she is just as funny as ever.

What isn’t so indelible today is Christmas.  Well, I guess we won’t forget the tree, but we did just take it down today and hauled it to the tree chipping folks.  It’s always a bit sad to see it go, but at the same time, it’s nice to have our foyer back.

Anyway, I have been trying to think of other things I wish someone had told me sometime, but I can’t think of anything.  It’s probably something you think of in the moment, you know “Man, I wish someone had told me that 5 years ago!”, but when nothing is going on to make you think that, you can’t think of anything.  That’s where I’m at now.  Of course, it’s also the end of the day, and I am wracking my brain as to what to write 500 words about.  I mean, I did do some other writing today as I had to finish a couple of assignments for my Curriculum Development course, but I don’t post stuff like that on my blog because you probably wouldn’t find it overly interesting.  Unlike this piece, which I am sure you find fascinating!  Perhaps what someone should have told me in the past was to start something right away, rather than waiting until the last minute.  Of course, I wouldn’t have listened because, well, where is the fun in that?

  1. And Sam Rockwell won and I just love that man. All is well in my world….

  2. I know what you mean about the things that torture you at night. Even if it’s not something stupid I said, it’s some weird crap I need to analyze to death. Ridiculous brains.

  3. Oh my gosh, yes, Carol Burnett is indelible! I LOVED her show!
