I lost my muse again

I am beginning to come down with something. I have been sniffling since this morning and feeling a little rundown. I am not at that point yet where you feel like you have been runover by a truck, but I can hear the horn and see the lights in the distance.

It is aggravating. If I am going to be sick, well I might as well be sick and leave work. But I don’t feel bad enough to just get up and walk out, and I don’t really feel well enough to work. It is a problem.

And as mentioned above, I have lost my muse. In the prior post I had an idea that sounded great in my head. I had thought that it was going to be a terrific post, and it turned into the “hot idea meets mediocrity” thing in a hurry. Oh well.

At times I have considered deleting every post that I dislike or think is weak. It would make a stronger portfolio but the rules of the blog maintain that the good live with the bad. Unless the bad is so bad that horrible is not a good description of how bad it is.

This makes me wonder, are we ready to bring back concubines?

When I feel like this I just want to go home and change into sweats and lounge around the house. A nice massage and some tea would be great. But with two small children around the house it is quite busy and a bit of a challenge to get this kind of complete attention from the wife. Which is why a concubine would be great.

A concubine is kind of like the DH of the household. She could take care of those little details and allow the wife to do her stuff without interruption. In truth, she would be like a great time saving device. It would be outstanding to have this kind of service.

Men, just think about how much happier you would be and how that would translate into a nicer, friendlier environment at home. And the benefits might even extend to your office. Just consider how much finer life would be if you waltzed into your office relaxed and smiling.

It could be the next big thing, the question is how to promote it.

    I plan on writing a book on how to sell it. It’ll be available in the finer stores for only $9.95. 😉

    Let us know how your wife responds to the concubine thing!

    Specifically, if it works! I mean, I truly want to know what wonderful sales techniques you conjure up on that one!

    And, btw, is it against the law to delete posts? I mean blogging law? ‘Cos, uhhhhmmm, I delete that CRAP (and I do mean CRAP) all of the time!

    My wife reads my blog sporadically, but there is nothing here that she cannot read or does not know.


    I was trying to upgrade my iTunes account and it kept giving me a 1607 error.

    Concubines – What a great idea!

    Oh. Hope my wife doesn’t see this.
