Anyway, that's what I need to do to my brain right now. You see, I'm thinking about something, some thoughts of mine about Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, Brittany Spears, and Miley Cyrus. I don't have it completely thought out--I don't have my "brain" wrapped around exactly what I want to say or I haven't thought about it deeply enough yet. That's why I need a "Stretch Armstrong" brain right now. I need to pull it, stretch it around these thoughts so I can be clear.
I once told a friend from long ago, Lisa K., that I sometimes would just like the time to meditate on a single word or a single sentence. To dive deeply into what something really means. So maybe that's the case here--not just time to pull my hands around gray matter, but the time to do it.
Here's one of those fabulously cheesy commercials from way back when: Stretch Armstrong and Stretch Monster!
