What to do? (An unnecessary internal monologue.)

>> Saturday, March 08, 2008

I really don't know, I really don't know what to do.

Seriously, I don't know. What I want to do is go back up to the whitewater park and take a walk like I did last week. The problem is that it's been raining most of the week--hard rains like we haven't had in a while, and slow misty rains afterwards that never stopped fading down until this morning. So the trails are going to be muddy, muddier than they usually are. I said that was the problem, but it's really only one problem. The other problem, a related problem, is that it's windy today.

This isn't a complaint, though it may sound like a whine. We needed the rain and I love stormy weather. That said, I don't necessarily want to be sprawling around in the mud. I'm dainty. No, I'm not--that was a joke. I don't even mind the mud so much, I just don't want to spend much of the early afternoon on my ass. Which is what I would do if I didn't go out there. But on your ass on the couch is more dignified, no? You know what I meant. I'd rather not twist anything or find myself covered arms-to-shirt-to-the-bottoms-of-my-boots in sludge.

But, as a friend's girlfriend asked last night at the social gathering, what else am I going to do? She was trying to get me to stay when I decided to head out at one o'clock a.m., I'm not sure why. And what am I going to do? As the old song goes.

I think maybe I will head down there for an hour or two, and why not? Into the sludge and mire! Onward, ho!

Have a good day, folks.
