CHANGE, TIRE, PARTS, BOWLING, TIME...
A "spare" in bowling it when you manage to take down the final pins on your second roll.
A "spare" on your vehicle is the emergency tire you carry in case you have a flat on the road.
We have spare change, spare parts, AND...
Then we have "spare" time...really? Is there such a thing? Only if we create it.
Right now this heat is giving me a perfect excuse to invent some spare time. I look around and there is plenty of productive work to do but I can legitimately pass it up because it's too hot to be motivated toward work. The spare time is every gap that occurs between the feeding and care of animals and spouse and the feeding and care of animals and spouse.
Right now my spare time is consumed with:
Computer: Online word games and blogging.
Audio Books: Currently MICRO by Michael Crichton and just finished KILL SHOT by Vince Flynn
e-Books: Currently THE AMERICAN SNIPER by Chris Kyle and just finished MISTRESS OF JUSTICE by Jeffrey Deaver
Netlix movies: Loved BLACKTHORN with Sam Shepherd
TV movies: Rewatched ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.
TV shows: Favorites JUDGE JUDY (an excellent reality show!) and THE BIG BANG THEORY.
So I guess in some ways I'm not wishing for this heat wave to end. I just can't spare my "spare" time:)
What are you doing to stay out of the heat?
