When I want to clear the fuzzy, cloudy bits from my brain, I typically go for a walk. But last week, after finishing final edits on my current manuscript (and reading my story just one more time, again and again), I found myself in a swirly, slaphappy haze.
It was the kind of brain fog that nibbled away at my common sense.
I should’ve just gone for a walk, or better yet, taken a nap, but no, I got on the Internet and started scheming up BIG IDEAS.
Anything is possible on the Internet!
Especially if you have a valid credit card.
And a brain full of cotton candy clouds.
Of course, the Internet LOVED my spontaneous scheming and so the next day I woke up to this confirmation email:
Your O’Neill Epic Wetsuit has shipped!
I’ve never worn a wetsuit. I don’t go into the ocean. Not unless the water is very clear and mostly calm. Surfing? Scuba diving? Not my thing. Not really. I can’t really begin to tell you what I was thinking when I ordered a wetsuit.
So now I have to figure out what to do with a wetsuit. A men’s wetsuit. Yup, I ordered the men’s size, because that makes sense, right?
Never operate the Internet under the influence of a mental fog.
Or keep a buddy close by for talking you off wetsuit buying ledges.
In the meantime, I am resting and going for walks.
What have you bought on impulse? Do you have any non-ocean ideas for wetsuits? Should I take a photo of me and my brand new wetsuit? (Considering the level of my mental fog, I may do this.)
Happy Wetsuit Monday!
