To Launch a Rescue Attempt…

I’m doing it! After all these years of watching and cheering on Geekwif, I’m finally doing NaNoWriMo with her. That’s when you try to write a novel of 50000 words all in the month of November. So it’s a month of messy ponytails,  late nights, and even more takeout than usual.

Blogging will be sparse. As will everything else except writing, pretty much.

(If you want to join us – or if you already are doing NaNo, look me up as HolyMama please, and we can be buddies.)

This morning, mom and I were unloading washer, loading dryer, discussing who knows what. From WITHIN the near empty washer comes a voice that clearly says, “To launch a rescue attempt would be illogical.”

As bizarre as that is, we didn’t scream. We didn’t even disagree. There’s no rescuing from the endless cycle of laundry in this house. It would be illogical. But the voice of the washer said as much…?

Turns out it was a little Happy Meal toy from last year, a tiny Spock character with a large head and an ability to withstand the power and wetness of the washer with his voice still intact.  Ethan-9yr has drawn on his face with a pencil, and yet that didn’t wash off. But he’s pretty clear on his status, and it’s enviable.  HE needs no rescue.

Well good for him.

I’m doing it too. I think I may officially be crazy for attempting it this particular time. :) But I’m going for it. My name is elainamarie if anyone else is doing it.

That Spock story is too funny. Thanks for the laugh :)
Good luck on the novel!

Hilarious! My first thought was that one of your boys somehow climbed in the washer. (Who else would be able to talk and small enough to get in a washer?) But then I realized that would be illogical. ;)

That’s great, Kelsey. I really wanted to do NaNo this year, but knew I couldn’t pull it off right now.

Have fun and I’ll look forward to reading about your experience. :)

You, too, Geekwif. :)
