The Art of Getting To The Point
Good Morning. I was sitting here and as usual, I wanted to write but couldn't come up with anything. I can't understand this! I used to be able to write everyday. So, I took a few moment s to go take a peek at some of my past posts. I wanted to see what I wrote about then. I figured I'd spend 5 minutes max to take a look and maybe would have some huge inspiration.
SO....1 1/2 hours later (did I mention I tend to get sidetracked) I was still reading and I realized that most of my posts were about....um....were about....Well...i have no idea.
I can't believe how much I rambled on about things. I wrote about answering machines, junebugs, My Fan, The FBI, Bunnies, Burritos, and a dead mole...just to name a few. And yet, you wonderful people still keep coming back!
My! How I used to ramble on. I just rambled and rambled about anything and everything. I'm so glad I don't do that anymore! Can you imagine still reading this blog when all I did was to write about anything and everything? Not only that, but it took me 3 paragraphs to write what the average person can write in 2 sentences. WHEW! I'm glad I don't do THAT anymore. What a lot of reading and writing it would take just to try to get one thought across. Yes, it's a good thing I don't do THAT anymore.
Ramble....in addition to "walking aimlessly", "sprawling" and "wander about", you could also say...
beat around the bush
go off on a tangent
talk off the top of ones head
get off the subject
I got these from my Thesaurus.
Thesaurus: A dictionary of synonyms and antonyms. Any dictionary, enclyclopedia or other comprehensive book. A store house or Treasury.
I absolutely love my Thesaurus!!
Man! I am so glad that I don't ramble anymore!!
have a terrific day!!
