  • Ground rules for meditating: gerund edition

A list of gerunds I found myself doing mentally, while meditating. I’m supposed to be breathing and feeling the breath, and that’s all, but I found a few other ways to pass the time. It is BUSY up in HERE.

Hypochondriacking (sp?)
Questioning my spelling
Rueing
Planning
Good-girl-ing
Measuring
Judging
Arguing
Nodding off
Listening to my stomach rumble
Rating meditation apps by speakers’ voices

So, in short, I’m really good at it so far.

I couldn’t define gerund, so I looked it up. It reminds me of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strip with its infamous, to me, line, “Verbing weirds language.” http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1993/01/25. So while I will respectfully reserve judgement on your meditating, clearly, you’re really good at writing so far!
