I often write a post and save it to be published later. Sometimes, life gets busy and I forget, leaving me with an interesting pile of outdated posts lurking in my “draft” folder, which I periodically clean out.
Other times, the cold reality of hindsight tells me that a particular post is not worthy of publication and should probably be dumped.
Such was the case when I opened a draft titled “Percocet Perceptions” and began to question my sanity at the time of writing it. Then I remembered, I wasn’t sane when writing that post, I was doped. Which explains a lot.
What else explains a post riddled with bad spelling, and an incredibly detailed observation that my favored face wash – the only stuff I’ve found that keeps my skin surviving Arid-zona – closely resembles a bodily fluid particular to the males of the species?
That draft got deleted!
Meanwhile, my faithful old (and heavy and slow) Dell laptop has been semi-retired and replaced with a brand new toy. It ain’t the Mac Book of my dreams, but that wasn’t in the budget, I’m afraid! It’s just a Toshiba that I got at a helluva bargain.
