note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th

Coincidence? I think not!

If you listen to Owl City's songs Dental Care and Rugs From Me To You, you'll know that he loves puns and other such wordplays. He also is on Twitter. So it was that I came up with a clever pun and tweeted it to him. (I must say that the mustache bit isn't original, but it's still funny.) I got off shortly after and honestly didn't think anything would come of it.

(@vivid_writer is my public account I use to reply to people who aren't following me.
I'd use @lovehascome, but my tweets are locked down and I like it that way.)

However, something did come of it.

I got on after my mom and I finished watching Dr. Quinn and absentmindedly checked my Twitter, only to see a tweet from Owl City. He didn't reply to me, but he tweeted this to EVERYONE. 

Somewhere along the line, he must have read my tweet.

I refuse to believe that this is coincidental. 

Thank you, Owl City. You made my day.


  1. Ha! I laughed at that tweet this morning and thought it was rather clever! That must've made you smile like the lyrical deer in the headlights. ;)


  2. That's so not fai. I officially want a twitter. I may just ask for one. ;)


  3. How EPIC! Congrats! You must have been ecstatic. ;D

  4. Sky! You have been awarded:

    PS the comment moderation that I have to type is "thing." They're running out of made up words.

  5. Ha! That's classic. X) I am also a fan of cheesy puns... so, when I saw that you RT'd that, I got a nice chuckle. Makes it even better to know it was (, DEFINITELY) inspired by you! ;) Good plan, not accepting this as coincidence. heehee.

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
