Thawed For The Day

James Proclaims (4)


I was struggling to think of what to write today, and almost didn’t bother posting. But I’m on such a hot blogging streak at the moment (this being my 133rd post in 133 consecutive days) that I was reluctant to not write anything. I feel the run is likely to come to an end soon, but I think if I can get over the hurdle of today’s apathy, that I’ve got a few more posts in me before I run out of steam.

On the other hand I didn’t want to just stare at a blank page for hours on end, waiting for inspiration to find me. I have better things to do than that.

Like eating the rest of that ice cream that’s in the freezer.

And watching the next episode of that box-set.

And preparing for that presentation I’m meant to be doing in work tomorrow.

Well I’ll do the ice-cream and the box-set thing anyway. I expect I’ll be employing my usual ‘winging it’ strategy for the presentation.

So, in the absence of any genuine inspiration, I’ve imposed a ten minute time limit on myself to write today’s post.

Why ten minutes?

Well that’s the optimum time from taking the ice-cream tub out of the freezer to allow it to thaw sufficiently to transfer it to a bowl without bending the spoon, but not thaw so much that it loses its delightful ice-creamy consistency.

So, while this may not be the best post I’ve ever produced, I will get to enjoy a bowl of ice-cream at the end of it.

And that’s got to count for something right?

    Dang good post if ya ask me…it was exactly the length of time to read as it takes to soften a tub of ice cream to eating consistency without losing any ice creamy goodness! Bravo!

      As long as you enjoyed the ice-cream – that’s the main thing!

    I read too quickly, bent the spoon, and chipped my tooth. You will be hearing from my solicitors shortly!

    On the subject of how many days in a row you can continue posting, I say aim for 150 and then take a break and reward yourself with… oh I dunno know, maybe a bowl of maple syrup roasted macadamia nut icecream.

      To be honest that’s just my reward for ‘getting through the day’. I’m gonna have to go a little bigger for the 150. Maybe two bowls…
