Happy to be back and ready to jump in. Today I am joining in again for Five Minute Friday. It has been a while so please bear with me. Forgive the food pic. I’m hungry and these are the best sweet potato fries that I have had to date (got them at 7 Monks Taproom in Boyne City“. This is not about sweet potato fries, but I definitely wouldn’t have discovered how good they are if I hadn’t tried. 🙂
Today’s word (or Friday’s anyway) is “Try”
This is where my mind goes…little boys sitting at a kitchen table with a bowl of cereal in front of them. It is my hunger again.
“It’s supposed to be good for you.”
“I’m not gonna try it — You try it!”
“I’m not gonna try it.”
“Give it to Mikey, he hates everything.”
“He likes it! Hey Mikey!”
Yes, this is what is in my head at the word try. Mikey tried it. Mikey liked it. In fact Mikey liked it so much he didn’t even slow down for a thumbs up to his heavily accented brothers. I often wonder now if those boys were related. They looked alike and they certainly sounded alike. I wonder about Mikey too. Where is that guy now?
The thing I couldn’t understand is why did they bother giving it to Mikey if he hates everything? Mainly I figure, Mikey is like me. If someone gives me a nudge, I’ll probably try something. That is unless I feel like I might put myself in danger or perhaps that little “he hates everything” comment was meant to needle him a little bit into action. I’ll do that too.
I think I might try things a little too much though. Sometimes it is like I am at a big buffet and it all looks so good. I grab a little of this and a little of that and in the long run, I need to curb that try down to something a little smaller. A little less overwhelming. At the very least I need to not just stick with try and plant myself on “do.” Wow…just had a Yoda moment!
We can at some point I believe try too much. Try so much that we never settle on one thing or even some things. I want to become more focused this year. Even stating that is rather silly to me since we are more than half way through the year, but it is there.
I’ll give it a shot. I’ll give it a try.
This has been my first dig back into Five Minute Friday. Something that I have missed in this relocation time of living with very little internet (library is where I am connecting right now). I am Five Minute Saturdaying it. And I am glad to be here. It is an awesome community. Join in on the word “Try” and learn more HERE.
