Today's five minute Friday prompt is change.
Of course it is.
Here are the words I told my friend before she left my house, exactly five minutes ago.
"I don't like change much." -me
You know what I do like? Create your own pizzas. In theory, anyway. Tonight, the guy at Whole Foods let me choose my own ingredients and my favorite kind of cheese. He was bored, perhaps. He said he had never made a pizza with feta and goat cheese on wheat crust with broccoli and mushrooms. Weird combination, but it sounded good at the time.
Create your own pizza sounds good in theory. But in reality, it tastes about as good as it sounds, especially since it's not what they usually make. I can't actually complain because I was delighted that someone gave me so many options and did not find this order strange or complicated -- at least not to the untrained eye. But, maybe sometimes more options is not better?
I'm not sure what pizza has to do with change. I think change has to grow on me, again and again. Like weird pizza. I got three big slices, and I still have extra in my fridge, so there's time.
It seems like I would rather talk about pizza than change.
That and I lost my voice for awhile. I think I'd like to talk about that, too.
I lost my voice. Literally. It was weirder than the pizza. People I talked to on the phone didn't recognize me. Funny because I had been looking for my writing voice again -- I was afraid it was getting lost somewhere in the sea of my current state of life. Maybe things needed to recharge. My voice is back now.
If you've ever lost your voice, either kind of voice, maybe you've wondered if it wouldn't come back. Maybe your voice got scratchy and six octaves deeper than your actual voice. No?
So, it's been a little odd around here, but you know, there's always a story.
I'd love to hear you talk or not talk about change from your corner of the woods. And if you ever think your voice has gone lost, literally or figuratively, but you're still dying to speak to the world with whatever muffled sounds you can let out, I understand. I will do my best to listen close.
