1. I like it when you use the word “aplomb.” It always sounds so elegant.

    I’m not sure exactly what I do with my “fringe hours.” Mostly I probably stare into space which is vital to MY well-being. Not having to think. Not having to do. Just being quiet for a bit. I like that. Which might not always make me the most “productive” human being but it feeds the soul and keeps me sane. That counts, right?

  2. I’m happy to have been a part of your fringe hours. 🙂 I prefer to do things in big chunks, to complete an activity in one sitting, but after having children I’ve had to learn to break things up into smaller snatches of time. Most of my reading is done in fringe hours. Staring into space and not having to think, as Carrie said, is a vital activity as well. I fill up a lot of it with playing games on my iphone, with I think is fine to a degree, but I wrestle with whether I do too much of it.
