I don’t know about you, but I have had my fair share of those awkward texts where one party has misunderstood the other. It could be the shortness of the text when the other was expecting more, maybe. Or the wrong use of language that could be taken as a slight rather than a compliment. Perhaps even being called the wrong name. Online dating alert!
I am embarrassed to say that I have even argued with my husband via text and the texts got longer and longer and more painful and accusatory. It was really quite stupid, I know, but these are the times we live in. It has become acceptable to write to another using poor grammar, misspelled words, using coded language and ending messages with silly pictures, rather than calling. So I am refusing to do it anymore. I am giving myself the power by not responding. If someone can’t write properly, he or she’s a dope and I feel sorry for them. So there. Stick that in a text, why dontcha!
I am always attracted to humor and I have the belief that you can laugh your way through anything. Sarcasm can be funny, but not always. It can hurt feelings if not used appropriately, however, this is One Liner Wednesday, so let’s not get too deep this early in the morning, OK?
How often have you sat in an airport lounge or a shopping mall or maybe a doctor’s office and took a good look at everyone waiting. I’m sure you do what I do and start imagining what those people do for a living, what their spouses or partners are like, and what they might even say to each other when no one else is around. In a way it can be fun when you play with someone else because they usually come up with a completely different scenario than you. It passes the time, that’s for sure. Have you ever been certain you know what someone is like and then they surprise you and are the complete opposite of what you imagined? For instance, do any of you really know me? Hmmm?
We all wake up on the wrong side of the bed sometimes, and need a little direction to get us going. This is what I would call a ‘no frills’ horoscope for the day. I think it’s good advice and so I will do my best, and take it. What do you think?
I am sure there are many people out there this week who are frantically busy buying Christmas gifts for family and friends. Along with the never-ending shopping list of food and other necessary items some of us lean heavily on our husbands, wives and partners to help with everything. Right? When I came across this funny cartoon recently it really made me laugh.
Wishing you all a very happy Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year.
We all have them don’t we? The junk drawer that is probably in your kitchen. I remember always having one and over the years, with each move, the contents of my junk drawer would make the move in its own packing box. On arrival at the house the junk was given its new drawer. Really! It’s crazy I know but the stuff in that drawer doesn’t belong anywhere else.
So the other day I found this little blue plastic thing on the floor. We’d had a guest staying with us and I was so sure it had come off one of her belongings. I texted her a photo of it but it wasn’t hers. So guess where it now lives?
Good Wednesday morning! I hope you are all doing well. Have you noticed, when you are in a store, it is an easy mistake to assume that someone standing nearby might work there and you begin asking questions. Maybe they have the same color shirt as the company uniform or they are wearing an unrelated name tag. I’m sure most of us have done it accidentally, but I have never thought of doing it on purpose to get a reaction from someone. Have you? I do worry about Karma though. They say what goes around, comes around.
