I love being from Montana. It is awesome. And Absarokee Days is today! Even though I have missed the parade, it will be exciting stuff. Maybe there will even be dancing. And possibly beer.
What a life.
Even more exciting, I have applied for two jobs and almost nearly come very close to finishing a short story, and pretty soon I am certain that a funny metaphor about life will occur to me and I will be able to post it to this blog and you will be able to laugh and we will all have succeeded in laughing, which should always be a major goal.
Lastly, if you have never read James and the Giant Peach, I think you should, because it doesn’t take very long and it’s incredibly fantastical and, fun fact, it was Roald Dahl’s first children’s book, which is cool. Before it, he published a book of adult short stories — and let me say, Dahl writes some seriously good adult short stories (so good, in fact, that I think children also enjoy them) — but James and the Giant Peach was the first dive into fabulous imaginative elements of childhood. And we’re very lucky he took that dive.
