Flu, inspiration and natural 20’s
Chills, ear ache, headache, leg cramps, ok – let’s just say, everything from my hair to my toe nails ached.
My co-workers were refusing to use my phone by mid-day yesterday.
Thought I might just die, but plowed through like a champ and got things accomplished that I’m actually proud of.
I was so inspired by what I had learned and put into action that I told my son today, “It’s been a crazy two days at work, but I did it. And you are smarter than me. So wanted you to know, you can do the ‘thing’ – whatever ‘the thing’ is.”
We argued about who was smarter – then I ended that argument with “Ok, I’m more experienced, but you have natural talents I don’t.”
He did not disagree. LOL!
He just left to play D & D – and asked me to tell someone he was getting married – apparently he ‘rolled a natural 20’. (Whatever that means.)
I passed on the message and went on a little tangent.
I’ve decided I’ve never been heartbroken – and I’m betting a lot of people who think they have … haven’t.
I’ve been what I’m coining ‘hopebroken’.
Investing faith and time and large portions of my life in people I believed in.
People who gave me butterflies – that turned out to be moths.
My heart is not broken.
It’s completely capable of loving.
And the great thing is – my hope is never completely broken either.
I bounce back.
I have too much faith in ‘good’ to just chuck away the ‘hope’ card.
And I am hopeful.
And I am smiling.
Because I have something to smile about – I have a LOT of things to smile about.
And I’ll admit it – I’m such a nerd, I hope to hear one day “I rolled a natural 20”. And I’ll know what that means now, and I’ll smile.
After I finished this post, I was informed a natural 20 doesn’t mean getting married – and I googled a bit … then got fuzzy again.
Look at the confusion! Then I got more info. After IM’ing my son, he said the 20 was: “Lol it was to get out of getting punched in the face.”
That boy needs to use commas in his oral presentations!
I still like the thought behind it. So I’m leavin’ it. lol
