My plans for yesterday included seeing my fabulous dentist Dr. Del Castillo about an unplanned missing filling.
My plans for today include singing my new and timely lyrics for Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” at a remote Open Mic, which you can hear in this planned YouTube video.
My plans for my vacation this week included testing out a new microphone before tonight’s performance. Because of the distortion on the high notes, I plan to post a new video of “Vaccine” tonight right after the Open Mic.
Before I share my other plans for today with you, I plan to share some thoughts about plans:
I enjoy plans when they combine structure and creative freedom.
There is a big difference between worries and plans, although we tend to confuse and combine the two.
It is possible to plan without worrying and I plan to continue to get better at that.
My plans for today include sharing all my planned and unplanned photos from yesterday with you.
I hope your plans for today include leaving a comment about this “Plans” post.
Every day, my plans include ending my daily blog with gratitude, so thanks to all whose plans included stopping here today, including YOU.
Let’s start this throw-away post with a definition of “throw away.”
1. denoting or relating to products that are intended to be discarded after being used once or a few times.
“a throwaway camera”
synonyms: disposable, single-use, nonreturnable, unrecyclable
2. (of a remark) expressed in a casual or understated way.
“some people overreacted to a few throwaway lines”
synonyms: casual, passing, careless, unthinking, unstudied, unconsidered, offhand; underemphasized
1. a thing intended or destined to be discarded after brief use or appeal.
Here are a few throwaway lines from me:
Some years ago I asked Michael, “Did you throw away the cards and letters I received from clients when I left my previous job?”
Michael said he would not throw away anything valuable and he was sure they’d show up some day.
The cards and letters have never shown up, so I assume they were accidentally thrown away.
My memories of my previous clients remain in my heart and mind, never to be thrown away.
It looks like Michael did throw away my favorite boots.
I don’t think Michael meant to throw away my boots. I think he temporarily threw them in the wastebasket while he was cleaning.
I fear that the new U.S. tax bill is going to throw away a lot of valuable things.
If my fears are true, I’m hoping the “careless, unthinking, unstudied, unconsidered” parts of the tax bill that Congress is almost certainly “passing” will be “discarded after a brief use.”
Yesterday, I won a box of chocolates that I will not throw away.
Here are some more throw-away photos from my non-throwaway camera.
If everything I’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear, I guess it’s time to throw away fear.
The FCC has thrown away Net Neutrality and I wonder how that’s going to affect my throwing in YouTube videos like this one (which came up when I searched on “throw away”):
Let’s not throw away our shots.
Please leave any throwaway remarks below.
As always, thanks for reading my throwaway lines, here and now.
