Sam? Sam who?

It has been a rainy afternoon, one of those days when you want to go get a pizza, munch a brownie, and then take a nap. I am not admitting to doing any of this. The scale will reveal the truth on Sunday.

I fell asleep before the end of Jeopardy and woke up as the evening news was going off. Ninety minutes of repeated negativity. The nap was better, but it left me with half a brain.

The phone rang. Hubby said, "I'm meeting Robin at Sam's."

I asked, "Who is that?"

"Robin, my daughter. Are you awake?"

"Yes! I know who Robin is, but who is SAM?'

"Sam's Club."

"Ohhh! Okay."

I thought a cup of black coffee (and another bite of brownie) might jog the gray matter. I sat down at the computer and clicked the PASSWORD space. I waited and I clicked; I waited, clicked again, and I nibbled and I drank, and I mumbled, and I finally said, "What is wrong with you, dumb computer?"

What was wrong was the dumb computer operator hadn't ENTERED her password, just kept clicking the word, PASSWORD.

Another day in Linda's Looney World!

In all fairness, I needed that nap. I taught preschool today, and I wrote and submitted two stories, and I spent a couple of hours working on the anthology that I am co-creating for Publishing Syndicate. I hope that Dianna Graveman, who is the co-creator of two of the Not Your Mother's Books had a restful afternoon, too.

Please consider submitting your stories to an anthology I am co-creating, Not Your Mother's Book...On Family, and also send your first person stories to Not Your Mother's Book...On Being a Mom, and Not Your Mother's Book...On Moms-to-Be.

Guidelines for submitting through the website to more than thirty titles in development:

At least you scored the nap! LOL Your password problem reminds me of something I did last week. My husband was with me while I attempted to type in the crazy words that Blogger requires now to prove I'm a person. Nothing I typed in worked, and I fussed and fumed...until my hubby figured out that after I typed the crazy letters instead of hitting the "submit" key I kept hitting the "retry" key. *sigh*

You got a lot accomplished, so a nap and a brownie were just the thing. I think you can be excused from thinking for the rest of the day. I'll write you a note if you need one. :)

A can of Vienna sausages will pick you right up.

Both you and Lisa make me feel better...I couldn't work my own microwave one day last week until hubby came in and saw I was missing a step...one I have done every day for years!!!! Glad you got a nap...now hope you can sleep tonight...been rainy here three solid days...feels good though.

Dianna Graveman said...

Well, thank you, Linda! My week did get a little less stressful today. Maybe it was your pick-me-up phone call today! Glad to hear you got some rest, too.

You certainly deserved the nap.

Susan said...

You're funny, Linda. You did, indeed, deserve a nap after working so hard with the little ones. They can sure tucker us out. Take care. Susan

Tammy said...

You just described why I have mixed feelings about naps. Too funny!

It is so difficult to get the brain back into gear after a nap. The fuzzy, headachey feeling is unpleasant and the knowledge that the 'proper sleep' at bedtime will surely be elusive doesn't help.

Munching on a brownie sounds really good to me! I hope the scales don't rise too high on Sunday!! I'm sure you well deserved that nap after your busy time. You made me smile this morning!

LOL! It sounds like one of my recent days.

I'm guessing it was a couch nap, not a recliner nap.

There's nothing like a good nap, even if it laeaves you temporarily "with half a brain".

I've greatly enjoyed your humor.
