What says “Playtime” to me is when I have free time to start my computer and start writing. Well this is what is enjoyable for me. I love reading the post of Bronx Boys,his posts are interesting. I enjoy leaving my comment. Then there is another blogger she writes so well, I can’t wait to see her post. She is twenty two or three I must say she has potential. She is one of those people to whom writing is not a chore but a welcome change from her dreary work. I was thinking of encouraging her to join speak easy and write.
Besides reading the blog posts,I read the chapters of my online course. I write my comments. Playing with words is my playtime. I get to exercise my brain,which will get rusty if I don’t. To me it’s like keeping your body fit by going to the gym or running outdoors.Physical fitness is necessary for us mortals and so is mental exercise. I get to do plenty of mental exercise. Pedaling the stationary bike for thirty minutes takes care of my physical exercise.
On week nights I spend an hour watching ‘wheel of fortune and jeopardy’,it takes care of entertainment or play. This is all I can think of!
I checked the dictionary,to find out what is their definition of “Normal”, well surprise,surprise,it says physically or mentally sound. What it means to me,I do not think I’m quite sure.A good thing or a bad thing,depends on who the judge is.
Let me think about physically sound first. It is not easy to know about physical fitness. I maybe fit today,tomorrow I’d find out just the opposite. I heard about a young man,sound bodily, suddenly collapses and lands in the ‘ICU’. So one cannot decide by looking at a person,he/she is sound physically. There have been cases when patients have been sent home with a clean bill of health. Moments later the person is back on the stretcher wheeled hastily to ‘OR’,this is about physical health.
Next is mental health,it is much more complex than the one I just wrote about. We hear about serial killers,outwardly the neighbors see nothing wrong,he is as normal as anyone else. Delve further you find ,he/she is responsible for countless murders.How can it be, he was photographed with the Reagans. There is something wrong with this news.No there isn’t, we overlooked it.
My conclusion is, the word,’Normal’ is not easy to write about. So I leave it to the readers to decide,if they can distinguish between normal and abnormal.I certainly cannot.
