I went to see the World's Prettiest Baby today! My niece is SO adorable. She's going to be a chatty girl, I bet. She's getting older, so I'm going to have to start calling her the World's Sweetest Girl.
Made me sad, though. I played my Happy Music all the way back home, but it sounded so sad. Funny how music can suddenly sound so bittersweet. It was nice to drive in the Jeep with the top off on such a beautiful day, though.
It took two hours for her very shy cousin to give me a smile, LOL. Which is funny because yesterday, in Walmart, a girl started following me around. I Didn't Know It! I swear to God. I was trying to get through my list, and suddenly there's this girl underfoot, staring up at me expectantly with a smile on her face.
I always feel so awkward, I've mentioned this before. I was certain the mother was going to come tearing around the corner accusing me of kidnapping her child, LOL. When I was housesitting, I was walking a dog and that's even worse because dogs attract kids! Two different girls came up to me to talk.
What do you do in those situations? I still haven't figured it out. How can I not be friendly, you know? I'm not going to cut off the conversation and be rude to a child.
Oh well. I've decided it's the parent's responsibility to look after their own child, and if they haven't taught them not to talk to strangers, it's none of my business.
I'm back in my writing room. Feels a little lonely today, but still cozy. People always say to "use it." I think they mean to pour the feelings into your fiction.
I don't know. The way I use it, I figure, I want to entertain the people who feel sad, to give them some fictional friends that will keep them company so they don't feel so lonely. Kinda how listening to Stephanie Plum makes me almost feel like DH is in the car with me. (We always listen to Stephanie Plum while driving.)
34 more days.
Many of my readers yearn for something they can't have. I've been there. I don't want to write about how that feels, I want to give them what they can't have, if only for an hour or two.
I don't know. How do you use it?
