Back when I spent silly amounts of time in the Armstrong Browning Library, I had an 8 a.m. class that very often began with an on-the-spot requirement that we use two and only two words to describe a given topic, circumstance, situation, altercation, and/or whatever the professor pulled out of his arse.
At the beginning of the semester, it was intimidating, then it became annoying, then irreverent and frankly kind-of fun.
So what are my two words?
Well, my initial reaction was to say: Honkytonk Badonkadonk. Because I’ve been using those words a lot since I learned them Friday as the main lyrics to a real-to-life song, on which someone is currently making big money. Which makes me laugh and flinch and frown. But then, of course, silly me, I realized that was complete wishful thinking because clearly Honky Tonk alone is two words.
So my second response is very Yin/Yang. I’m both “fairly motivated” and “sleep deprived”. My sleep deprivation keeps me from being quite motivated. And my fairly motivated part is just enough to keep me up way too late at night, adding to my sleep deprivation. It’s a sid vicious cycle. So that’s me. Currently. And right now, I think the “Sleep Deprived” is winning.
And so I ask you. How are you feeling today? In two words. And only in two words.
