We’re as nicely honest as we can be, but, sometimes the shock is too much & a blunt reply pops out. The Hubs sometimes tries co!or/pattern mixes that do not work. And some styles, no matter what fabric, color or pattern, juuust look muuuch better on the hanger than on me!
You know it’s bad, when you have bifocals, but need to take them off to read fine print!!! THAT started around age 40-45, Eye Dr. said it was because I was near-sighted…still don’t understand it, but, I deal with it.
A joke from the retirement community that my MIL told me she got from her pals who live there. They give every newbe a child’s toy block & tell them to put it on the floor in the middle of the room. Then every morning, walk around it several times. That way, when the Dr’s office/kids ask if they’re getting exercise, they can say “I walk around the block several times every morning.”
We have two maple trees, so, we have twigs & sticks all the time & add branches & limbs when we have storms….of course, we also have sticky buds & wings in season.
None of our 11 assorted cats ever cared about the vacuum cleaner. Tigger adored being vacuumed with the small, plain upholstery brush, but the rest just heaved a deep sigh & left the room.
10pm last night, some cretinous, shambling, drooling, odorous troll started setting off very heavy fireworks. Not just lil pops, fizzles & bangs; these were heavy boomers, as well as the aforementioned lil ones. Fireworks should be completely illegal for everyone, everywhere; between injuries, fires, property damage & potential for starting very large & long fires, I think we’ve gotten to a point where they need to become memories!
Upper Illinois: 73° at 5am. Dew point 71°. High today of 93° with potential for t-storms AND potential for them being severe.
In 1973, my office job as a filing clerk & then coding clerk, was $98 take-home pay every two weeks. In 1976, when we got married, the Hubs talked with his boss, who was also the owner of the small company, telling him that he wanted a raise…family to support doncha know…The owner told him to write down everything he can do for the company, then he’d show the Hubs how to write it up as a resume. After which, he gave him the raise, telling him to always know what you’re worth & be able to articulate it & write it up into a good resume.
Yep. You not only learn words for things that are now occuring in/on your body, you learn…“colorful metaphors”…for describing them, what they do to you & how you feel about it! As well as how you feel about other people’s sometimes callous reactions to your situation.
We love “BBT”! (We bought all the shows on disc, for repeat watching.) I dunno if I have a favorite character, I loved all 3 of the girls for their individual traits. It was an amazing bit of writing & acting, that they could get along so well with each other & the guys! But, I guess my fav, if I had to pick one, would be Amy. She really had a rough start & learned how to be part of the world outside of academia so eagerly. It was like watching a puppy learn to be a dog, all clumsy paws & bouncing around & then one day, it just all falls into place.
