Today was not one of my more productive days when it comes to writing. However, I don’t regret it too much because I did something wonderfully fun. I’m almost embarrassed to tell you about it because I know you’ll be jealous, but . . . well, I have to boast: I had lunch with Charles Martel.
You don’t need me to tell you that Charles Martel is informed and funny and witty, but I’ll tell you anyway. He’s all that and more because he’s just a delightful person with whom to spend some time. For that reason, I lingered a little longer than I probably should have over lunch. The result was that, rather than returning to my desk, inspired, and diving into blogging, I ended up ferrying children hither and yon, doing grocery shopping, cooking dinner, and running other errands.
I promised myself, though, to hold on to the inspiration Charles gave me and to bring it to you on Wednesday. Until I get those posts written, though, please enjoy this Open Thread
