I Wrote This Instead of Writing Something Interesting

18 Oct

I had a detailed post in mind, but it involves a lot of writing, and I would rather not get into that tonight. Instead, I could write about Bob Dylan winning a Nobel Prize in Literature. I have seen him in concert a couple of times. He may be a great writer, but I could not understand a word that he said.

I could write about the World Series of Poker. I am watching an episode on ESPN. This is the first time that I have not kept up with the results. I was watching poker back in the days when Stu Ungar and Johnny Chan were winning. However, my interest crashed when the poker fad crashed. I reckon that I lost interest when everybody started watching and playing.

I could write about Dolly Parton. My wife just turned the channel to 9 to 5. However, I have already written about the time we saw Dolly in concert.interesting

I could write about Jamaica. We are going there in a few weeks for my wife’s cousin’s wedding. Was that confusing. There is a waterfall in Ocho Rios where they take all of the tourists. Years ago, a bunch of us climbed it. My friend fell on a rock and broke his tailbone. Is tailbone a medically correct term?

I could also write about the presidential race. No, I do not think I will.

I could write about the weather. That is what people usually talk about when they cannot think of anything else. It is still hot in mid-October. We no longer have four seasons. We have two.

Here is something that I can write about. Today, I learned that Howlin’ Wolf, the great bluesman, once lived in our town. This is something that I had never heard. Being the city historian, this disappoints me. Now, I am going to dig around and find out all I can about his time here.

That is all I have for this evening. Soon, I will write that post that involves a lot of writing.

    I think the tail bone is the coccyx and it is painful if you break it!
    Jamaica is dangerous with the sixth highest homicide rate in the World so be careful!

      I know. That’s why they have all-inclusive resorts. They don’t want anyone leaving the property.

        I went to St Lucia a few years ago and it was exactly the same so I wouldn’t go back and no where else in the West Indies either!

    When I run out of things to write about, we have dogs.

    I climbed that waterfall too. I didn’t break anything, but I can see how easy it would be to do so. It’s a coccyx, assuming I’m spelling it right. Tail bone = coccyx.

      Tail bone is definitely easier to spell.

    What Andrew and Marilyn said about the coccyx, a term which I learned in an improv dance class in college (and not in any science or health classes I’d taken anywhere else).

      An interesting place to learn.

    Have a great time in Jamaica!
    Ouch! to that broken tailbone
    That Howlin’ Wolf bit has got me diving into my little collection of his music.
