Writer’s Block

First of all, I know I’ve talked about this before, but I really think that I could be a great radio personality.  I mean, I love telling people about my life.  Anyways.

I’ve been having a little problem when it comes to the ol’ bloggy blog.  I’ve been experiencing severe writer’s block.  FYI: writer’s block is code for my life is BORING.  My life is reaaaaaaal boring lately.  I even told Peter that we needed more exciting lives.  He said, “But Sara, this is the real world.”  Haaaaaaaaa.

So, since my life has been far from thrilling, I just have zero to write about.  It’s not like I’m babysitting so I have a bunch of kid stories for you.  And I’m not living in a foreign country, so there goes an entire blog’s worth of entertainment (click on the link on the right called “re-live my Ecuadorian life here” if you haven’t read about that joke of a life).  I also don’t even have good Peter stories to tell, because he’s been working a TON, so I don’t even have HIM to entertain me.  Siiiiiiiiiiiigh.

Lucky for you (and me… because I realized that I need to use my creative juices once in a while), inspiration came to me on Sunday.  Inspiration, my friends, came to me unbeknownst while I was driving in my car.

Inspiration came to me in the form of a bee.  

On Sunday morning, I was driving through the bustling metropolis of Walworth with my windows about a quarter of the way down for about 5 minutes.  I put my windows up because I decided to call Peter.

Taaaaaaalky talky talky talky.

Sara: (Loudly) Oh.My.GAWD. (switch to a whisper… don’t want Mr. Bee to sense my fear!) There is a BEE in my CAR. omgomgomgomg

Peter: *silence*

Sara: (Continue in a whisper) omgomgomgomgomg I have to go.  I don’t know what to do.  Okloveyoubye.  I hope I don’t die (FYI – I am not allergic to bees).  Ok wait.  I just put the window down.  omgomgomgomgomg I hope that the bee got out.  Ok I really have to go know.  What if I get STUNG while I’m DRIVING? Okloveyoubye.  I’mreallyscared.


The bee DID get out of my car (I think) when I rolled my window down, but then I just drove with my windows ALL the way down for the rest of the ride home.  Insurance, people.

Flashforward a few hours.  Jenna and I were going to Rachel’s volleyball tournament to sit with our mother and watch 2 hours of 8th grade volleyball on Mother’s Day.  Yaaaaaaaaaay.  We decided to get ice cream.  We’re in the car, driving along.  With the windows partially down.

Sara: AHHHHHHHHHHHH (ear piercing scream causing Jenna to slam on the brakes)

Jenna: OHMYGOD are you OK??????????

Sara: Oh.  Whoa.  I thought that leaf was a bee.  Man.  Did I tell you that there was a bee in my car earlier today?  That really must have had an effect on me.

Not like I ever over-react or anything.  Remember the time I was in a tornado warning?

  1. Yes I remember the bee. I was getting out of my car, (we take ten billion vehicles now because my birthday present only seats 5) and Sara gets out of hers and says”MOM there was a bee in my car!” I said “oh that sucks”. Then I went in and had ice cream.
