The sound of gerbil silence

Shhh! There might be gerbils lurking in the shadows along with the grues...

Hello darkness my old friend…

Best opening line of a song … evar! 🙂

I’m here to tell you that I have nothing to say about the gerbil today. Shocking, I know.

Yesterday, my wife emailed me five words. “Confirmed. He has a key.”

Last night, however, I did the unthinkable. I didn’t inquire any further. I let the topic go. My wife had asked me out on a date and my sound of silence regarding the gerbil was my little gift to celebrate the occasion.

After work she picked me up and we went to a park by the river. We sat in our Coleman picnic chairs, had some beer, veggie sandwiches, chips, potato salad and macaroni salad. It was pretty darn nice. Almost like camping, which we probably won’t get to do this year. Then we grabbed our little point and shoot and shot pictures of a nearby bridge for Shutterboo’s Weekly Photo Challenge.

It was nice to go on a date, picnic out in nature, have a good time, work on our social media skills, take pictures and not think about gerbils and their nesting habits for an evening…

  1. Don’t you just love taking pictures of bridges for no other reason than to share it with people you don’t know? I know I do. 🙂 Thanks for the shout out!


    1. You’re welcome. And because of you we had a fun date!


Bringeth forth thy pith and vinegar
