The merits of logic gone wrong: My youngest boy sadly stated that it's too bad his brother will never be able to become a fire fighter. The reason? His butt is apparently too small ???
And then there's the part where I fool myself: I made some muffins to take to my friend's house and was pleased that they were still warm when I arrived. Her response? "These are pretty good for a mix." HOW DID SHE KNOW?
And speaking of knowledge, have you read the ebook, Sentence of Marriage? You MUST. Now I am reading the first sequel, Mud and Gold, and it's almost as good.
Here comes the work reference: my students and I read an editorial yesterday about how even as society speeds along technologically, we are clamoring more and more for a hands-on, slower connection to life. The editorial then cited the Etsy stores as a prime example of our longing for more of a human connection. Not one of my 27 students had any idea what Etsy is, so that kind of shot a hole right through the article's theory.
The students did, however, better understand Dave Berry's advice that women would be happier if they only looked at themselves from the front. He says we get into trouble when we look at our image from other angles such as the side or the back. He says men have perfected the art of the one-glance, front view only and are much happier as a result. I think he's right!
And speaking of men, isn't it the most awkward thing as a woman to have a conversation with a male acquaintance whose fly is open?
And speaking of things men love, some women and I were discussing the merits of breast liposuction. Two other women stood next to us and talked about their longing for breast enhancement. Seriously, if they can do a person-to-person blood transfusion, can't they do a person-to-person boob transfusion?
Now I'm done speaking. So head over to Mrs. 4444's place, and see who else is feeling especially fragmented today
