Well, except for that one time when I watched through a wire fence as a plane taxied away without me on it.
Though hopefully it was only that one time and I am currently in Scotland at a wedding, having caught a more recent plane this time. (If not, I’m in trouble.)
I’ve grown so used to deadlines – homework, exams, trains, planes, applications, broadcasts, entries… It’s not the deadlines that are troublesome, but the occasional absence of deadlines.
The knack is to ensure that longer term plans don’t get shoved aside by the constant elbow jogging, shirt pulling of short term deadlines.
At least this is one short term deadline I’ve already met – posting on this topic for the Loose Bloggers Consortium’s Friday update. You can find out which of them met the deadline by scrolling down to their links in the right hand column.
Meanwhile, a short play entitled Deadline for two characters – Deadline and Me.
Deadline: So, that’s it then. I’m leaving.
(Deadline opens the door and departs.)
Me: Bye then. Missing you already!
