Q: Did you hear the one about the kid with ADHD?
A: Let's go ride our bikes!
Today I was doing my usual blog reading by routinely and systematically going through my bookmarked blogs. Just to check for updates and whatnot, see what's new and exciting in blogland, yadda yadda yadda.
In due course, I got to Sam's blog. I read a bit of it when I got distracted by something pretty on my desk. ("Oooo... prettttty...."). You may know that feeling of random distraction, when your mind wanders to other, infinitely less important things. Or, in the alternative, you may actually have some semblance of an attenion span. Which I obviously do not.
But I digress. Point being, I had gotten part way down Sam's latest post -- about Valentine's Days past -- before the evil sirens of pretty shiny things diverted my attention. My screen was at a point on Sam's page which was past the title bar ("Reversed and Remanded"), as well as the title of the most recent entry.
Of course, if you checked the link just now, probably realize that Sam and I have chosen the exact same Blogspot template for our blogs, such that even our fonts are identical.
So much so, that when I first turned back to my computer screen just now, I looked at the words to the entry and thought to myself, "When did I blog about Valentine's Day? I thought I deliberately avoided that topic!" I won't even tell you how long it was before I finally realized that the blog I was looking at wasn't actually mine.
Oh, my short attention span cracks me up. Hahahah -- Look, a quarter!
