My first thought was, “Well, I’m glad I’m not getting off at this station.”
Then, thinking about it, I decided that the announcement had probably said “elevator,” rather than “alligator.”
This happens to me pretty regularly, especially when I have news radio on in the background while I’m focused on something else — I consistently hear things as weirder than they really are.
I decided to write a quick blog post about this, because for the last couple of weeks I’ve been assembling a list of possible short blog posts, and my idea was to write a long blog post, with a lot of little sections.
This idea (calling it a “plan” is probably giving it too much credit) has obviously resulted in a lack of actual blog posts. I thought about this when I read this article: “Hundreds of Ways to Get S#!+ Done—and We Still Don’t“
I usually have a lot of different To Do lists in various places, electronic and on paper (my little list of possible blog posts is just a small segment of the overall confusion), and it was kind of a relief to read the article and to realize that this is a general problem.
Anyway, there should be a few (shorter) blog posts coming soon. If I can just remember where I put my list…
