There is nothing more frustrating than being stumped by a simple question about what you believe to be the truest and the falsest things you know. Nevertheless…
- A new study suggests that the reason middle-aged folks can’t remember where they left their keys is because their brains are chock-full of stuff, as compared to younger minds that have not accumulated as much stuff to have to sort through. Fascinating. I still haven’t found my keys.
- Binge-watching a TV series is either exhausting or exhilarating. Binge-reading a great novel is only ever exhilarating, because if it were exhausting, you’d just put the book down for a while.
- That graduation speech that drives home the point about wearing sunscreen still resonates.
- Time spent at a beach, or any waterfront for that matter, never gets old. Neither does the sound of rain on a roof or a fire in a fireplace. With a warm beverage, of course. Maybe also with a splash of whiskey. Oh, and while you’re at it, some of that apple pie, heated, with a scoop of ice cream, too. Now, where’s that soft, fuzzy throw blanket…?
- Fish and house guests do stink after three days. Or maybe it’s just the litter box, in which case it’s easier on everyone if you just blame the cat.
- Housekeeping is not a DIY project. Shouldn’t we get an expert?
- Travel is one of the most wonderful experiences in the world, except for the actual traveling.
- The more things change, the more they stay the same.
- If all the world’s a stage, then I must always remember I was only cast in a bit part (which is why I created a blog, so I could at least write my own lines).
