Five-Hundred Word Challenge 659: Wasting Your Time

I don’t have much time before the start of the shift so once more I’m really going to try and pump something out fast, but of course it will be of dubious quality, but of course that isn’t different from usual, so I don’t even know as to why I’m wasting your time by mentioning this.

Maybe I should waste your time mentioning other things, but that is a treacherous journey and that journey is not one I want to go down right now. There are other things, of course, but mentioning those definitely makes for a waste of your time so I think I’ll just get on with it, whatever “it” may be, of course.

Well, I think that’s the end of this one. I don’t have anything. I really should have started earlier instead of adding undue pressure to myself. I don’t think this is a worthwhile endeavour, so maybe I should stop it here and begin to thank everyone and everything so that the rest of this time makes up something, but still, I don’t think that is a worthwhile endeavour right now. Maybe I really should just focus on getting ready for work. That probably is the best thing to do right now. Maybe this is a form of getting ready. Maybe that is what I am doing and by rambling on and on it makes it look like I’m not, but I truly am. I’m doing it stealthily and you don’t even know. I don’t even know; that’s how stealthy I am being right now.

Maybe, just maybe there is no stealth involved and I’m just rambling. It is possible that I am already ready and this is just me attempting to see if I can squeeze that extra thing in before the start of the shift. That might just be it. It is possible. In fact, maybe it is the thing that is true. Maybe I already am ready, but my hands are not and so they need the training and preparation that only I can offer when I place my hands on a keyboard and bang out words as fast as I can.

I don’t know where I’m going with this, but I am sure that there is a point among all of this somewhere.

The fact is I have maybe a little too much time on my hands right now. There still are two minutes before the start of my shift and that is pretty good, but maybe it isn’t. Maybe this really was a bad idea and I should stop before I reach the end.

To be fair, I’ve gone beyond the end and now it’s all just a free-for-all, though that isn’t always a bad thing, thought right now it is, though I’m just throwing things against the wall and seeing what sticks really. Not sure as to how much of a benefit that provides to you, or me for that matter, but when I reach the end we’ll see.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 04:54:85

It’s amazing how much the pressure of being close to the beginning of a shift can make a whole lot of nonsense come out.

Written at home.
