Let me Entertain Me…

A few days ago I took on the challenge to write extemporaneously about the word entertain. Today I found myself in a situation I did not like. It conjured up negative, anxious feelings as a result of two people not behaving the way I want them to. Thankfully, I turned my attention to physical activity as a way to dissuade behaving in a way I might regret like sailing upwind with the center board up.

After wheelbarrowing three loads of dead branches and other fallen twigs to our erosion prevention areas, I retreated to my office where the sun is so intense I have to wear my sunglasses to type this. Eventually I will have another area in the loft where I can write. For now, I will use the sun’s intensity to strengthen my resolve to find a humorous way to deal with the situation.

Accessing my sense of humor is how I will entertain my reaction to this situation. Sooner or later a verbal conversation will take place. I need some phrases to accurately express how I feel, what I think, and what I will do. In order to research an appropriate lexicon I need to leave this blog entry in search of self entertainment to deal with an otherwise day of beating to windward in a two foot chop and a 20 knot breeze on my Hobie 14.

Any ideas?  Feel free to comment on my blog or via my e-mail:  sassythesailor@gmail.com

 

 

Pansexual

Apparently pansexual means a liking of everyone. If one is pansexual they are heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual. A pansexual person likes everyone regardless of their the sexuality of another person.

Researching the term pansexual brings up the idea of you say tomato (toma toe) versus tomata (toma ta). The term first came to light and seems to be popularized by celebrity quips. Miley Cyrus recently declared her pansexual preference.

Being pansexual does not require one engages in sexual activity. The implication is that one likes everyone. Sounds like a nonjudgmental approach. More research on the use of the term is suggested before one announces there choice of label. For example, if I am physically attracted to someone who turns out to be a homosexual female does that make me a lesbian.
