Happy Valentine's Day!
I have the house all to myself for the morning. The Hubster and Lily went off in search of an adventure worthy of a man and his beloved dog. I have the windows open, candle burning, music on and Dark Forest open.
I also have clogged sinuses. An infection crept in there on Wednesday night. Ugh. The problem? Words escape me. Common words. Well, maybe not entirely common but words that should come easy to me. I can think of the definitions (which really, should be the harder part), but the word escapes me. This has happened multiple times, throwing quite the kink in my morning session!
Normally, I can bounce things off The Hubster. This doesn't always work. At times it's like a bad comedy.
Me: Whats's that word?
Him: What word?
Me: You know, that word that...when someone doesn't miss anything?
Him: When someone doesn't miss anything?
Me: Do you know the word or are you just going to repeat what I say?
Him: Perceptive. Brainy. Slick. Acute.
Him: That means someone doesn't miss anything?
Me: No, but that was the word I was looking for.
Him: And you wanted me to help you find that word based on a definition NOT for that word?
Me: Shhhh. I'm trying to write.
Even if he was here, he might not be able to help me. This morning, I've turned to the internet. Google search has become my best friend. Goal for the morning: Three Chapters. Current Progress: One and a half. I might even smash through that goal and get past it by a few chapters. But not if I stay here writing posts all morning.
What about you - do words sometimes escape you? How do you find them? Chase them down and trap them in a butterfly net? Have a spouse or friend help you? Or do you Google like I've Googled?
Thank you everyone for your well wishes! I'm recovering quite well save for the nasty sinus infection that had nothing to do with that awful procedure!! I was very touched by everyone's comments!!
