Entry: strand: half way to nowhere in particular. Monday, April 14, 2008

there's an underused english term called "dawdle".  it means to semi-aimlessly, almost indeliberately, saunter towards your destination.  my mum used to tell me, in her finest catholic manner, that i would "dawdle to the pearly gates if [she] wasn't there to chase me".  (and now i am totally missing her)

anyway, dawdling is what i was to doing on the bus.  its what i always do on the bus and, i guess if truth be told, what i always do in life.  don't mistake my contemplative expression for thoughtfulness.  when you saw me i was probably most of the way to nowhere in particular.
