Other Than Laugh, What Would I Do?

Mar 5th, 2009 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

So far no responses to my plea for responses. That’s okay. You seem to keep coming anyway. It appears there must be something on the table that satisfies your taste. The world won’t come to an end if there is no feedback. This column may, for lack of stimulating ideas for topics, but the world will still be okay.

Frankly, most of us are overwhelmed with things to do, requests for time and attention, suggestions of how we may be helpful. Meanwhile we are heading off all the invitations we get from well meaning sources for well deserved tasks. It just can’t be done anymore. We have learned, at last, that NO! is a complete sentence. And that it is perfectly okay to refuse the multitude of requests, not out of discourtesy, just the need for time to do so many other things.

Now that you have this well defined excuse to turn me down, feel free to do so with others. And, if you decide to write me anyway, other than laugh, I will just be grateful.
