Ok, let's try this again. Brevity. See?
I made my card just like DL said in his post at the main A-Z Challenge Blog. I didn't know how to make it work, though. I had it beside me when I wrote the chapstick post. That post wasn't brief at all. So I called tech support and they told me it had to be properly installed. So I did. See?
All I needed was the ladybug clip! Lucky I had one on hand because the brevity program is sold separately, no clips included. Now that it's up and running fine, I will move on to my brief post.
Recovering from this lung illness has taught me a few lessons. No, patience isn't one of them. Apparently God's not done with me on that issue. However, I've found that having a jot-book really relieves some of the stress that comes from having only one of four cylinders firing correctly due to some nasty meds, and that one isn't the memory cylinder.
I treated myself to a 2-pack of these.
One lives in the basket I carry with me from room to room
the other in my purse. If a thought enters my mind, I write it down. Have you seen The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? If not, then do. I'll wait. See! Didn't you love that great scene where they're on a planet where having an idea gets you smacked in the face by these shovel-looking creatures? I feel like that. The thoughts come, I'm startled by the clarity, so I have to write it down.
I leave you (at less than 300 words!) with this last thought. OOPS! It left the building without me...
