Catch You Later...


"I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're going and hook up with them later."
~ Mitch Hedburg

Ha! I find this quotation quite amusing - and not because I am cynical, world-weary or disillusioned. It just happens to tickle my fancy or my funny-bone or whatever.

But maybe I am a bit of a cynic? Why else would it hit a nerve?

Not to fret – while waiting to hook up with my dreams I’ll gather some rosebuds while I may (although I’ll have to steal from my neighbour’s garden), won’t cry over spilt milk (although I’ve been known to swear when that happens) and will refrain from putting all my eggs in one basket (they’re likely to break – hate that).

And life is but a dream anyway, right?

My love affair with the English language continues…


I’ll be away for a few days – will be hooking up with one of my dreams!

I think one should miaow over spilt milk rather cry over it. It seems more appropriate. Send us a postcard.

Ha! I've been gone over a month (finishing a new novel), so a few days is just a minor infraction not worthy of a ticket!! Have fun and tell us about it.

Love the quote choice. I'd like to hook up with my dreams provided they come true...lol.

Meanwhile, do whatever you want to enjoy your time. I think that's better than dreaming because it's real. :)

Cipriano said...

Hope you have had a wonderful time!
Tell us all about it.
Well, you know.... about the parts that you can tell!

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!® said...

Tease. I'm going to need to know a little bit more about this hook-up.

Cid said...

Hope you're at the cottage. Cozy with lots of books.
