Word association: Honey

Time now for another installment of word association where a reader suggests a word and I post a post based on that word. Feel free to suggest a future word in the comments.

Word associated: Honey

Word suggested by: oh, you know who you are


I am writing to cheer myself up.

Cheering oneself up can be a difficult task.

It is like comedy writing. I mean, anyone can write sad stories. I mean, tragedy is everywhere. Thus, writing sad stuff is like shooting fish in a barrel.

Humor can be more difficult because it requires a certain willingness to part with the indignancy of having been wronged.

Dang, that's a good line eh? Just thought that up, right now.

So let me part a little.


I am a puddle of honey at the bottom of an empty coffee mug. Amber solid and sparkle fluid at the same time. I grow ceramic feet and hop to a warmer spot, under the midday sun. As I warm, the whole mug will become fragrant and intoxicated with the convalescing sugar. I get warmer. I get bubbly, all silly thick with sloppy joy.

Now I just need some tea to swim around in.

Amazing this, I feel so much better already. :)
