Distracting thoughts

Thoughts to distract me from tinnitus, which I recently contracted and recently discovered may have to live with for the rest of my maddening, whooshing life:

  • Nail polish! Nail polish is pretty!
  • Christmas is almost here. I can go home and sloppily wrap some more presents.
  • Reading W.H. Auden’s poetry is like turning on a different switch in one’s brain.
  • In the scale of chronic health problems, this one is minor. Right.
  • The Joy Luck Club.
  • I can get a dog in five months.
  • It didn’t snow last night and I am relieved.
  • We’re going caroling and bar hopping tomorrow night!
  • Did I mention Christmas?
  • What style of writing + color of pen to use for our Christmas cards, which are coming soon.
  • Can you blame everything on birth control?
  • The relationship between your heartbeat and the ocean.
  • Learning how to run for a long time.
  • Running with a dog.
  • Coming home to a dog.

… In the end, it all just disintegrates into dog thoughts.

  1. Learning to run with a dog is tricky. Walking leash training is key even before you take a running step. Mine is a year old and still has troubles. Darting squirrels are my enemies.

  2. dogs. you!
