BECAUSE I TURNED THE PAGES.
Do you all remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books? The ones where if you chose to open the door, you were supposed to turn to page 10 but if you chose to go back down the stairs instead, you turned to page 12? (Please tell me I'm not the only one around here who remembers them? I can't be that old . . .)
If I remember correctly (and since I am apparently so old, I very well might not be remembering this right), you had to choose something. You couldn't just sit there and stare at the same two pages for the rest of the day, or for the rest of your life. If you did, then nothing - nothing! - at all would ever happen, in the story or anywhere else. Bah!
This week, let's all make sure we choose something, do something. Go to page 10 or page 12. It doesn't matter if it's picking a different dish than your usual from the Thai place or finally starting that blog or signing up for a belly-dancing class. Just . . . turn that page!
