Writer's Block: The Last Time I Surprised Myself

When was the last time you surprised yourself?

I don't know. I don't tend to get surprised by myself because you know me, well I'm the one up there in my brain doing the thinking and everything. If my brain starts doing things in secret from me I think then possibly the whole idea of mental health has just died in one fell swoop. What is a fell swoop anyway? Fell sounds like it's supposed to be an adjective of some kind but it's not one you'd use in any other context. I got up and had a fell walk about the place. It's just not part of language. As for swoop I know what one of those is. It's like a thing that an eagle does when eating fieldmice out of a field or something. You know what I mean. Perhaps a fell is a bird and all it needs is one swoop and that's it's entire meal sorted out or an entire field cleared out or something.

You know I'm not 100% sure that sitting around dissecting every piece of language is a sure sign of mental health either. I think I should quit while I'm ahead.

Also check the Current Music for a track strangely appropriate to the current topic. Well almost. I don't have any music that involves both birds and fieldmice. This is the closest I could get without going out there and recording a song called One Fell Swoop. That's not a bad name for a song all things considered. I'm going to go and patent it.
