Wordless

Words that so easily come to my mouth aren't making their way to my fingers for some reason. I am blaming my birthday. I am 32 and no longer able to write a decent page of words. I even entertained the thought of posting some erotica I wrote back in college when I had a brief fling with my music teacher. Yeah I know my teacher, the married man of the kid I was babysitting, my therapist, I'm not proud. I am sure it all has to do with deep down wanting to only be with men who are unavailable. Maybe? Who the hell knows. I decided against posting it, it even though I am pretty sure the blogging world takes a small hiatus on the weekends, but I didn't want to freak anyone out or give any family members a heart attack if they were to ever stumble across this. Why couldn't I have dated a Philosophy teacher? I bet he would have inspired me to write really insightful things. Things I could have posted 12 years later when I had nothing to talk about on my blog. I should have planned better. Dammit.



So I'm here. I am cleaning and watching How I Met Your Mother, and am really glad I looked at the directions on the box of my "homemade" lasagna cause it takes two hours to cook instead of one. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

Now THAT would make for an interesting post... You could perhaps share your erotic ideas at the church I posted on my blog ;)
::snicker::
Yeah, I'm evil.
(Actually I must be because the word verification is getting all biblical on me too... I got "leper", I expect lightening to strike at any moment...)

Was that that guy with the curly hair and the glasses? The teacher? He was hot. I wanna hear that story again. Come on Please?

Chris said...

I lost my writing skills about a year ago....why do you think I'm sticking with cooking and photography for blogging? ha ha....not really kidding.

Happy Birthday! Don't worry the words will come back. I took a break and I'm still working on the words coming back! :)

What'd you do on your birthday?? Hope it was a good one!

Beth said...

Hope you had a great birthday!

And most women have some guy in their past they'd rather forget.

With four kids, your words will come back. Trust me.

Debbie said...

Honey, I'm 46! You are not old!

Secret Server said...

Happy belated birthday. I hope you enjoyed your lasagna. I hope you post your erotic story sometime too.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I'm not even saying how old I am. But...I am old enough to read erotica.

Vodka Mom said...

damn you- now I'm hungry for lasagna. How a m I supposed to lose 20 pounds if you people keep talking about food???

Vic said...

Happy Happy Birthday! (You know how when there is an accident on the freeway, and in front of the accident the road is all empty, but behind the accident the cars are all stacked up for miles? Your words are like that)

Casey said...

I just figured out that my lasagna takes two hours to cook too, dammit.

Wow, what a deep story about the married music teacher.

Happy birthday! I've got writers (and readers) block too.

Fragrant Liar said...

Well, I, for one, would love a scandalous post to read, but I imagine you'd also be setting yourself up for some self-righteous fingerpointing. Still . . . ;)

Happy birthday!

Hiatus is my favorite kind of soup.

Shangrila said...

Darling, you aren't 32. You are celebrating the 7th anniversary of your 25th birthday-which is a whole 'nother thing! My 8th anniversary is coming right up, and I'm gonna rock it like only a 25-yr-old can! ;)

you're tagged

C.S. Perry said...

Post it. Although erotica can be tedious at times and Lord knows there's plenty of it out there.

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

Sarah, your words don't come from old-fling teachers. They come from you. And they're good. So there! Happy birthday.

P.S. -- You're making lasagna? Impressive. I'm still in Ramen Noodle school.

Jenni said...

happy birthday, sarah!

MeadowLark said...

My! My!!! The stories we only sorta hear! ;)

(And I will say that "nothing" is the main reason I try to set the bar so very low with my blog... when I got nothin' it's really nothing new)

justcurious said...

story! story! story!

DeeMarie said...

The words have left me too. Maybe it is a 32 thing. Wow... quite the scandal you were in HS!!!

Mama Dawg said...

Psssstttttt.......I'm totally into unavailable guys.

HeatherPride said...

Don't feel bad, I dated some real "winners" in my past too.

Captain Dumbass said...

Damn. I meant to wish you a happy birthday. Oops. Why not create another anonymous blog and post your stories there?

blueviolet said...

Why the heck does it take so long to heat lasagna through? Sheesh!

If you had posted erotica, I would have thought your site had been hacked or something...LOL

FoN said...

Oh, I'm pretty sure you have to post it now. Ummm..just start with, "I once heard this story about...."

Happy birthday!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Ugh, after this fondue party at my office, I'm full and craving lasagna. Thanks, Sarah! And happy birthday!

"...and then the turbulence eased and they landed gently on the planets surface. The drop door opened onto a pleasant beach with crystal clear water and swaying palm trees. Moments later a second drop ship touched down farther down the beach. Kel and his shipmates moved towards the other ship to assist them. As the new ships doors opened, a dozen pink stormtroopers exited. Later, after the two crews had made friends, they discovered that their Star Destroyer had been destroyed in battle above the planet and they were all alone. Luckily they had landed on a small island that had its own supply of fresh water. They turned their small ships into shelters and lived happily ever after.

Just for you.
