What I mean is I am a lazy bum, but I changed it to lame in the headline because, you know, Lame Post Friday. I have been sitting here mindlessly scrolling down Facebook instead of doing anything useful or at least less embarrassing for a woman of my age and supposed intelligence.
Oh dear. Usually when I get started, I keep going. Sometimes, however, I get out a paragraph and dry up. Quick, throw in a picture to pep things up.
Earlier today I enjoyed a thunderstorm complete with hail. I tried to get a picture. I even stepped out on the front porch and aimed my Tablet at the hail collecting on the street. Then the rain abruptly started coming down in sheets and the wind started whipping, and I beat a hasty retreat. I took this shot through the screen door.
After things quieted down somewhat, I took my shower and ventured out to run a couple of errands. It was still raining but not too hard. I did see one impressive streak of lightning. How do people get pictures of lightning? It seems to me that is quite a trick.
And why does my Tablet let “lightning” stand in one sentence but underline it in the next, suggesting “lightening” instead? Lightening is what the sky does when I start my runs or walks while it is still dark out. That is not the same thing as the stuff you get with thunder.
I see I am over 250 words. Score! Lame words? Lazy words? It doesn’t matter! It’s Lame Post Friday! I hope you are having a lovely evening.
