This is not a post for Daily Post nor NaBloPoMo, it’s just something I wanted to post, about a crazy twilight thought(isn’t that when one is between waking and sleeping?) that kept playing through my mind at 3:30 this morning.
“Can you write a fifty word sentence? Can you write a fifty-word sentence?…” This out-of-the-blue thought kept repeating in my mind until it finally changed, but not for the better, since I didn’t answer the first question about whether or not I could write a fifty-word sentence, my brain decided to up the ante, “Can you write a seventy-five word sentence? Can you write a seventy-five word sentence?” That’s when I opened my eyes, pulled on my robe and headed to the kitchen to start my one-cup coffee maker.
Normally, I have sleep problems because one or the other or sometimes both of the dogs go through periods of waking me at 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. That makes for a crabby me for the rest of the day, I do not do well with interrupted sleep. But, last night, I have no one or nothing to blame other than my brain and its wondering about a fifty-word sentence.
Another reason I may have awakened so early was because I had my second steroid epidural and was heavily sedated all day yesterday, even by 11:00 p.m., I was groggy and in a ‘happy place.’
Sometimes when I dream about numbers, I think about what the significance of the numbers mean. I haven’t yet pulled out my numerology book yet, I’m not that curious, especially since I am now growing tired and think that peaceful sleep may be right around the corner for me and my brain, in the form of a nap after hubby leaves for work.
The good news is that my back is feeling relief and even though I was up at 3:00 a.m., I couldn’t help myself, I started “doing” things around the house, things I could do quietly so to not wake my husband. That’s when I realized the feeling I felt a few weeks ago, that feeling of not being in constant pain. Oh, I just wish it could last forever.
So, back to my twilight-brain thought, what does a fifty word sentence look like? I scrolled through some of my past posts, copied and pasted some sentences into Libre Office to check word count, and found one from my Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy response to a Daily Post. Here’s my fifty-word sentence:
He’s been in business at the same location for over thirty years, has a great reputation and is an all around nice guy. Sometimes Harry, my husband, will stop by Jack’s garage on his way home from work just to shoot the breeze, and that’s when the best story-telling begins.
I’m not going to bother looking for a seventy-five word sentence, my brain needs to get some sleep. I hope my subconscious will be satisfied that I actually found an exact fifty word sentence.
Oh, but, if you have a seventy-five word sentence you’d like to share, I’d love to see it!
OOOPS!!! My tired brain just realized that word count was truly fifty words, but in TWO sentences. Sigh… my eyes are drooping and my brain is drifting off into slumber land. Maybe I’ll continue looking for a fifty-word sentence when I wake up, maybe not. I’m still curious about anyone else out there. Do you have any fifty word, or longer, sentences? Yawn..
Changed my mind, going to use this for my NaBloPoMo, still too tired to write. Stretch, yawn, snore…
