Well, I’m now going into my fourth full day of this ever-so-lovely (NOT) cold, and can’t say that I’m feeling any better at all. This morning I fed the cats and brushed my teeth, and after that major exertion was ready to go back to bed! And I think I forgot to mention this earlier, but Peter came down with whatever this is a day or so after I did, so we’re a rather unhappy household at the moment. Here’s hoping another day of rest will be what it takes to get us both headed in a healthier direction.
Even though I’m sick, Wildcard Wednesday is still on… though this week, part of the “Wildcard” element is that it’s totally up in the air as to just when I’ll respond to your request! I might not get caught up on replies until the weekend, but never fear, it shall be done.
All you have to do is comment below with two numbers – the first between 1 and 612 (i.e., the number of pages in the book) and the second between 1 and 30 (i.e., the approximate number of happy items listed on each page) – and I’ll consult 14,000 things to be happy about and give YOU something to be happy about! (If there aren’t enough items on the page you choose, never fear – I’ll just keep counting over to the next page so you won’t miss out on any happy goodness.)
Before you jump in and comment, however, know that there are no guarantees as to what you’ll end up with (as you might have guessed from the “Wildcard Wednesday” moniker!) – your chosen happy item might turn out to be whimsical or evocative, silly or inspirational, perfectly timed or completely inappropriate… it might spark a memory, a question, a conversation… or hey, it might even give you an idea for a story or blog post! But no matter what, I think it’ll be fun… and I’d love it if you’d join in!
So, are you ready to play?
Give me some numbers and I’ll give you some happy!
