Why armpits are a useful tool for suffocation ...

It's one of those days where I have no idea what to write. I'm sitting here, with my fingers lightly touching the home keys, staring at the screen and my very orange signature I'm still not sure I like. I can feel the energy zing below my fingertips, they're screaming, "Make me play hopscotch! Make me jump!"

I scream back, "Shut up! I'm thinking!"

Silence. Stillness. Zing ...

My fingertips groan and break out in a sweat anticipating their possible next move, "You are pathetic. You just scored a job that's making you giddy, and you're not going to let us type up your hype?"

My middle finger twitches ...

"Hey! How rude!" I lift my hands, which are now as heavy as concrete due to my fingers insisting they remain firmly on the keys, but I manage to yank them away and suffocate them in my armpits.

"Look. I'm sorry. But it's confidential ... I'll resuscitate you tomorrow."


  1. Jessica, this is an awesome post. That is all.

  2. LOL Sure, keep us in suspense. :P

  3. Poor little guys, now your keyboard is either going to smell like deodorant or arm-pit funk. :)

  4. I think I'm going to start calling you Molly Shannon. Superstar!

    Hey, what's this exciting news you have?

  5. Ack! Not fair. You're such a tease. <3

  6. Drat. Come on. You can't keep us in suspense like this. And wash your hands before you start typing again. :)

  7. Are you teasing us? *grin* Your poor, poor fingers.

  8. I'm not sure I know what's going on here, but I still love the way you tell a story.

  9. Too funny.

    I LOVE the finger pics that people do. SO much fun :D

  10. You mean we have to wait until tomorrow? Aww ...

  11. *groans*
    I know that "fingers touching the keyboard while staring into space" thing. Ugh.

  12. I hate when my fingers are inpatient with me. Insolent bastards.

  13. By the way what I meant to type there was "impatient," but I blame that on my fingers.

  14. Hahaha! Thanks for making me laugh today, Jess. I love the photo, did you take it yourself?

  15. Jessica, sometimes time gets away from me, but I just wanted to say congrats on the new job! I think that's terrific!

  16. LOL! Congrats to you, you funny girl! My fingers do me like that sometimes and I DON'T even have exciting news. ((hugs)) :o) <3
