Ramblings of an insomniac....

I feel it necessary to preface this email with the following:

NO, I AM NOT CRAZY!!! NOR AM I A FREAK OF NATURE (just sleep-deprived) AH...I feel better now. (Jason, do you?)

Yes, it's 2:54 A.M. and I JUST realized I have never used the word, "Extemporaneous" in a sentence before. Further more....some of you like me (until now) may not even know the definition of the word. Although, I am fairly certain that this word could win Brett his next Scrabble tourney. Let's take a look at how Webster's has defined it....

EXTEMPORANEOUS-adjective. Carried out or performed with little or no preparation; impromptu: an extemporaneous piano recital

So, without further ado....I am must fulfill this obligation. Here's goes or should it be here go's...well whatever!

I awoke early one morning and extemporaneously constructed a sentence using the root word extemporaneous in it. How's that for a first time shot....is that a run-on sentence??? Hmm... (I'm sure you teacher's will let me know.)

For those of you who are currently questioning my sanity... let me confirm to you that yes it's early and too much caffeine the day prior coupled with a move in 5 days can wreak havoc on one's sleep cycle. (That's gotta be a run-on) According to popular psychology a person might defer that it is impossible for one to possess full mental faculties at such wee hours. However, the extemporaneous nature of this email does prove this theory has no merit.

I have just exceeded my own expectations for early morning sentence making abilities. I'm going back to bed now. Night, night....Or should I say, Morning morning.

Meanwhile, while Luke and Daddy are in a coma, Mommy is up runnin on all cylinders. My! Your vernacular sure does take a spike in the wee hours of the morning. I would think that at 2:54 am, my knowledge of a QWERTY keyboard would be lacking.

Not you, my little bride. You're Heather!

Random Story....
When I was in in Theatre/Speech in Jr High and High School we had to do this activity called Extemporaneous Speech. We would draw a piece of paper out of a hat that had a certain topic written on it, then we would have to immediately do a 3 minute speech about whatever it was. Thinking on your toes!
