30 Days - Day 28

The Hats

I wear many hats. And I'm getting old.

And it takes me longer than it used to to switch hats. Today I'm a municipal officer, posting about fire regulations and the annual shore clean-up and recycling instructions. And I need to get into writing mode. Deadline. And edits. Deadline. And a play revamp. Deadlines. And workshop. Deadline. And a corporate tax return I was begged to do. Deadline. And I in turn need to beg someone to type up some old poetry for a publication that they downloaded to me in squinchy JPG format that a four year old couldn't read. Deadline.

And I'm tired. I feel the life is sucked out of me at the moment. I have some health issues, nothing serious, just annoyances so I phoned the doc who'll see me tomorrow morning.

And the only hat I want to wear is my reader hat. Curl up with a book that's waiting for me and tell the whole world to buzz off.

I can't even find the chef hat so's I can make my own dinner.


  1. I know how you feel, some days I want to throw out a lot of my hats. Hope your doctors visit goes well tomorrow.

  2. Hope the doc helps you find your chef's hat and your energy!

  3. I have no idea how you do all of that. My anxiety levels would never allow me to handle all those deadlines.

  4. It sounds like you need a "well" day. Let 'em all think your sick, but enjoy a day at home reading!

  5. I am bald. If I wear a hat, I am ridiculed. Make what you will of that! I hope you laugh.

  6. "Oh dear, it sounds like everything's getting on top of you all of a sudden. I hope you rediscover your usual equilibrium! And I hope the doctor has some useful advice."

  7. You sound overwhelmed. Can you take a day off?
