Word Press just reminded me how lazy I am
When I started this blog just over a year ago I created an overview of posts and topics I wanted to cover and scheduled them to automatically publish to motivate me though them. The are/were largely unfinished recipes without photos,and that first batch just automatically published.
So I’m at my desk conniving ways to avoid the gym when my phone starts to send me alerts to WordPress.
It took me a few minutes to work out what happened — and, in a panic, work out how to undo everything.
Well, I’m feeling as round as this picture at the moment, so away from my computer, but first!
How do I avoid thee, gym, let me count the ways.
I avoid thee to the depth and breadth and height
My belly can reach, with feet out of sight.
I avoid thee to the level my moobs droop
Most quietly needing support under shirt.
I avoid thee freely, as I thrive at night.
I avoid thee purely, as I turn towards glazed –.
I avoid thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I avoid thee with a weight I can’t lose
in tight torn pants. I avoid thee out of breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall avoid thee even better tomorrow.
