Happy 2014

You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.

~Jack London

And, that is just what I did this first week into the New Year 2014.  I was stuck for months on Level 70 in Candy Crush Saga and felt entrapped in a quagmire of mediocrity.  Other persons on my Facebook friend’s list were passing by onto higher levels as if in a jet stream.  There remained I, doomed in isolation, stuck in a mucky existence with no particular place to go.  A brilliant idea flashed before me.  If my strategic abilities were lacking, why not buy myself out of there?  My first intention was merely paying 99 cents for extra moves, but even that proved fruitless.  I needed more. My attempts to get off the candy board resulted in a total of $3.97, not including added tax.  I got more bang for my buck in buying the “smashing” lollipops. In a few moves, I clubbed my way out of the chocolate and unapologetic for it.  I have a new lease on life.  Happy New Year to all!
