Lessons from Pac Man

Sometimes life gets so complicated and hectic that even giving a backstory is just too impossible and draining.  At least for me-I know there are people enjoy sharing and that's ok too.  But right now I feel like discussing Pac Man.  

Did you ever play Pac Man?  You may recall that the little guy would eat power balls or power pills or something powerful and the monsters  would freeze and he would run as fast as he could to make headway while the monsters were frozen.  I seem to be frantically looking for power pills and finding none.  If you played Pac Man you may recall that if you looked too hard for the power pills you often overlooked a monster and would be eaten.  Wooooooooooooo woooooo (sound of game over).    

I honestly don't know what lessons I learned in Pac Man that are resurfacing today-but I will enjoy thinking "wocka wocka wocka" as I go through my obstacles de jour.  Maybe that's the lesson-not everything is a "sign"...sometimes it's just another white dot on your way to finding a power dot.

Or maybe it's just fun to think "wocka wocka wocka" instead of "I can't do this any more".

I can't do this any more is written in the task at hand sense-not the life in general sense. I'm leaving it because I like the way it reads-but didn't want anyone else to worry.

I got you Deb - and I really like the image of "wocka wocka" and am going to use it today at work. I always liked Ms. PacMan with her fancy eyelashes.
good to see you, miss you when you are bloggy-awol
