What have I done?

Things I Still Haven't Done With My Life:
1) Write a book
2) Invent magic ray gun that disintegrates tailgaters
3) Write the soundtrack to a movie
4) Play harp for a wealthy grateful benefactor who loves my music
5) Become radioactively mutated into a really cool-looking supervillain who can blast deadly gas into the face of my enemies

Things I HAVE actually done with my life:
1) Write a 176-page letter to someone, on narrow-ruled 8.5 x 11 paper
2) Invent new vaguely-obscene sounding words to mutter at tailgaters
3) Write small ensemble pieces, solos, and a few pieces for wind symphony
4) Play harp at some weddings, a bed & breakfast, a college recital, a museum, and the grand opening of a store
5) Eat cheap bean burritos for lunch

Don't you see how close you're coming to realizing all of your dreams? I'd say this is showing you how "right on track" you are! Go burritos!

Note to self: when driving in Michigan, do not tailgate for fear Janna may actually invent that ray gun, or have mutated into the really cool whatever villain thingy.

tail-gaters don't bother me as much as the "pull out in front of you and slow down" people.
Now for THEM, I say we hook your burrito-bloated bowels up to a ray gun and have at 'em!

I became a cool-looking supervillian once...It wasnt all that I thought it would be. Cheers!!

I am still waiting for my 176 page letter...

Janna said...

Steven: Maybe I just need to eat MORE burritos...

Travis: Good advice!

Morgen: Just tell me where to aim.

Matt-man: Maybe you just need to try harder. Write to Dick Cheney for advice.

Mr. Fab: You would SO kill me if I actually did that to you.... :)

176 pages. . and I thought mine were long. . . I was so wrong.

Marcia: I had to mail it in one of those big 9x12 manila envelopes, and the postage was at least a couple bucks. What fun! :)
