drawing blank

I’m like most people (one of the few ways I am), that when I’m put on the spot, or taken by surprise, instead of being able to come up with a snappy + witty comeback, or thinking quick on my feet, I draw a blank. I hate that. But I didn’t get that kind of quick wit when God handed the brains out. I have to make do with my figidy wild ideas for multitasking and intense relating. 🙂 So recently I get stunned in the headlights, planning a small surprise, to hit up one of those once-a-year free-ice-cream days, and enthusaistically invite my friend, but he doesn’t want to go, and not only that, he’s upset and angry, that I’d hold back information from him.. he didn’t want ice cream, free ice cream, a special only-comes-around-once-a-year free ice cream.. sigh.. sincerity only goes so far..
