Yeah! Day 5 of the blogging challenge, 1/6th of the way to go before I finish the 30 challenge. We Work for Cheese has graciously given us a list of topics for the full 30 days. So grateful, since I've been tapped out for weeks and weeks and weeks. Today is all about pressure.
Well it's 11:45pm and I have 15 minutes to get this blog done. Hubby is in bed. Stephen Corbert is on the telly. And damn it, I want to eat something sweet.
I'm getting hot, because we haven't put the air conditioner in the window yet. Or maybe I'm getting hot because the menopause has gone from pause to full blown meno.
Or maybe its the glass of wine I just polished off. Yup, that must be it.
So the pressure is on to get this done in record time. So off the top of my sweating head, I'll have to write something quick. I feel the pressure to talk about pressure.
Pressure is putting the squeeze on. I used to do my best work in school when it was the eleventh hour. The deadline was looming and I would have to pull an all nighter. My best work would come at 3am when I was sure an F was going to meet me in the morning. A+ after A+ gave me the false impression that I worked best under pressure.
Continuous pressure is not a good thing. Hell! Look at the time. I've got 9 minutes left.
Anyhoo. I once took a health test on a medical website. It asked me all sorts of questions to gauge how my daily actions affected on my overall health. The conclusion? It stated, "You are VERY HARD on your body." So the pressure is on. If I don't change soon, I'll be feeling the pressure under ground.
Oh no, I'm brain dead. Can't think of anything else and I only have four minutes left. The only thing I can think of is totally inappropriate. The pressure I like is the pressure of my another human being leaning or lying near me. I sigh and feel the stress slip away.
Remember the squeeze is on and I'm going to go to bed and leave this pressure for a more pleasurable pressure, a quick squeeze.
Done. Hands thrown in the air.
