What activity were you doing when you ‘lost track of time’ from pure enjoyment?
I can loose track of time doing most things.
Sometimes I do it blogging, sometimes programming.
Sometimes just in conversation.
It is one of the things that Ailsa finds most difficult about me. Unless I put an appointment into outlook, and replicate it to my phone, to remind me, I don’t make it.
Sometimes I can start a conversation, and spend 4 hours in it without realising that any more than 10 minutes has passed.
Your 24 hours remind me of reading the Hobbit about 35 years ago – a friend gave it to me about 2pm one afternoon, and by about 6pm I had finished it. It took me about an hour to locate a copy of Lord of the Rings and start reading it.
About the middle of book 2, information from my bladder finally made it to consciousness, and I put the book down and headed for the loo. Then I noticed I was hungry, and it was 3am. Quick trip to nearby all night burger bar, and back to book. Finished it about 11am, then slept.
I’m like that with books. I often start and don’t stop until I finish. Part of why I don’t start many these days.
From about age 10 until my late 20s I would probably read about 5 books a week – most of them in a single sitting.
