Now before writing this blog (in fact, about half an hour ago, when I was still half asleep), I wanted to really think about what I wanted to say, and not go off half-cocked about it. I wanted to take no half measures, and tell no half-truths. I think that is half the battle in writing a good blog post (half decently, anyway).
So I sat down with a nice cup of tea, added half a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of Half & Half, got halfway through my first sentence and thought, hey, this is not half bad!
I thought when I started this post I would have at least half a dozen topics to write about. I could only think of half that amount (oh well, half is better than nothing). But half isn’t really better than nothing! I don’t want this post to be a half-hearted effort. Still, part of me wanted to quit. “Don’t be a halfwit!” I scolded myself, “Remember, well begun is half done. Plus, you’ve already put in time and a half on this thing!” I had half a mind to offer Michelle a half dollar to take over writing this blog post (and that’s not the half of it! Half the time I write these I feel that way). But I decided to persevere and finish this myself, because I also remembered that getting there is half the fun!
Well, perhaps this will have to suffice. I know it’s not much, but sometimes simpler is better. I would hate for anyone to accuse me of trying to be too clever by half.
