Tuesday's Tiredness

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I'll tell you what - it reeeeeeally takes it out of me, all this pretending!
Like today - Danny decided he is really a three-year old disguised as a
teenager and got a lot of fun out of attempting to bite the nurses, doctor,
and anyone else he got near, including me.

I had to pretend I was angry and shocked instead of joining in the fun.
It was awful! And I just collapsed when we got home. Couldn't handle
any more of it. It may take a few days to recover...

    Being a grown up is over rated. Next time join the fun and enjoy life! You'll have way better memories and stories to tell in your golden years. Plus, you won't be tired any more. It's a win-win! emoticon

    Isn't that the truth! I actually forgot I had something in my hand the other day and went to get it...

    Can't even remember how many times I've done that to myself! Or hidden something for protection and then forgot where I hid it!

  I can only remember half the things I need to; half the time.

    It's always nice to be able to look back on your list of your days accomplishments. And the longer the list of completed tasks, the better you'll feel. So definitely include those "already done" ones! emoticon emoticon

    Be lucky it's just an awkward "moment". For me it's pretty much all the time! emoticon

Saturday's Soft Drink Names

Saturday, March 29, 2014

I'm an outlier on this one, because I have always called them,
"soft drinks," only because that is what my mom and dad called
them. So if I'm weird, it's definitely my parents' fault.

    I always thought it must be challenging for waiters and waitresses to serve people who refer to all soda as "coke". Never really got that. True to the map's findings, I've always called it pop.

    Wow, I'm surprised at so many blue! My mom, when she was alive, always called it "pop" and I thought it was a habit from her childhood. She came from Baltimore where she lived until she was 19, and it doesn't show that so much but after that she spend about 12 or so years in Colorado where she might have picked it up. I was born and raised in New Mexico and always called it "soda". Never thought of different regions being different names but I should have. I know other things that are called different names depending on the area.

  Rats! I didn't know the picture would come out so small! The blue areas are those where the name 'pop' is pop-ular (yes, pun intended), with the darker shade indicating a higher percentage of people liking that name. The pink-red-brown areas indicate that the name 'coke' is the preferred choice, with brown being the highest percentage of use. Yellow through greenish-yellow areas preferred the word 'soda.' Light to dark shades of green preferred something else (like 'soft drink,' maybe?), and purple was no data.
