Don't you hate it when a sneeze sneaks up on you and you spit all over the front of your shirt before you can grab a tissue? What? I can't be the only one to have that problem.

That appears to be the extent of my thoughts.

OK. This is what they call an o-fer in baseball. Let's hope it's not a prolonged slump. I need to adjust to not having a set topic on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I guess I could have done the 5 Courses meme that Anndi tagged me with last week. But I didn't, at risk of grave personal harm...aka Mimi's dungeon.

This is painful. It's like a car wreck. You don't want to look, but at the same time you can't look away.

Now I've resorted to melodrama. Sheesh.

Better stop now.

Go ahead. Hit the next blog button. I understand.



  1. Like when you end up with those ropes of snot dangling down out of your nose? Totally understand.

    That may have been your best post ever. Cheers!!

  1. Julie says:

    Aww sweetie...I still love ya!


  1. No, this would have been Matty's best post ever if he'd written this.

    Trav, we've all had these days. Not to worry - your brain will return. Promise.

  1. Jeff B says:

    Maybe an alliteratin of last nights game will... well I don't know what it'll do but here ya go anyway.

    Beantown's Brady & Bill Billichick beat bungeling Baltimore's Bowler & Brain Billik, bummer.

    Bada Bing Baby!

  1. I've done the sneeze thing. So has everyone else. Hey, we all have times when we just need to shut-down for a bit. All normal. You just rest a bit and then your clever self will reappear. Big hug Travis. :)

  1. Steven says:

    We all get performance anxiety sometimes. Don't worry about it...things will be looking up in no time at all. Wait a minute here, what were we talking about?

  1. Akelamalu says:

    Ooo yeah, I hate it when that happens too! I hate it if I sneeze when I've driving because I have to shut my eyes when I sneeze and I'm always afraid I might crash!

  1. yeah...I'm sorta on stall too...but I resorted to photos of the kids....laughing...

  1. the108 says:

    Ahh... we all have slumps from time to time :)

  1. Meribah says:

    Yup, I've experienced the whole "sneeze all over my front" thing. Of course, I am a puppy, so making a mess is kinda expected of me! LOL
    Don't worry, Trav. Writer's slumps happen, but they don't last forever. Hope you are back to your old writing self in no time! :)

  1. Linda says:

    Sneaky sneezes, they're the worst!

    By the by, I have given you an award over on my blog, please come by and snag it!

  1. Travis says:

    Ian: Sorta like that, yeah. Combined with the spit drool that hangs from your chin.

    Matt: HA!

    Julie: Right back atcha baby!

    Songbird: The question then becomes, what will it bring back with it?

    Jeff: Well done! Now you've made me feel worse. You are good!

    Sandee: Mabye I'll get some crayons and draw a picture.

    Steven: LOL! So far so good in THAT department. I just can't think of much to write.

    Akelamalu: That's the worst! And then you've got spit and slobber all over the steering wheel too. GACK!

    Katherine: Hmmmm...maybe it's time for the Mr Tucker pictures.

    Kyra: I think it's because I hit for the cycle with my MM post. Now my average needs to even out.

    Meri: Now I know the seekrit of the glomptackle! It's so you can wipe the slobbers all over someone else. Brilliant!

    Linda: I will be there shortly.

  1. I'm taking that "Airborne" to keep from this kind of thing happening to me.

    Hope ya feel better soon, sweetie!

  1. you could have made a cake...

    smiles, bee

  1. Roger says:

    Hey you sound like you could use a couple of beers & a vicoden! Cheer up friend!!

  1. I totally relate to this... :)

  1. I like to have a set topic (like Monday Mimisms and Sunday Blog Chatter etc) but even then sometimes I'm thinking 'What AM I going to blog about?'

    This was a funny post. You should write about nothing more often. And thank you for not showing us your sneeze.

  1. Turnbaby says:

    Ewwwwww @ ian

    Smooch sugar--we all have those days.

  1. Travis says:

    CWM: I've been lucky not to be sick during the holidays. Hopefully that trend holds this season.

    Bee: You're right. I should have.

    Roger: Well at least the beers!

    Terra: This is pretty low for me.

    Mimi: I kind of got lost without my DWTS this week. Caught me by surprise.

    Turn: LOL. I just want to get to my vacation.

  1. Anndi says:

    Don't think I haven't noticed I have yet to see your curriculum mister...

  1. I'll throw him in the you-know-where, Anndi. Thanks for telling me. I won't tell Travis you snitched. Shhhh....
