The Weekly Wonderings #99

1. Should I really giggle when I read that one of the searchers landed on my blog looking for the phrase "time heels all wounds"? Or does that make me seem condescending?

2. I know it's "time heals all wounds," of course. And isn't it "Time wounds all heels?"

3. Or do wronged women just say that to make themselves feel slightly better?

4. How out of it I am? One of Youngest's friends has taken to calling his, um, you know, privates his "toolbox."

5. I practically spit out my drink when my friend told me that one.

6. How freely do I use the term "friend"? Far too freely, I'm afraid. I found myself clarifying with the aforementioned friend, mom of toolbox boy, that another person I was referring to wasn't actually a friend of mine.

7. Which got me thinking: are there really that many people in my life whom I would call "friend" and not feel the need to explain she/he was really just someone I knew? I do a mental count, and I think I arrive at something like five or six people whom I genuinely consider "current" friends.

8. You're thinking that explains why I blog, eh?

9. I imagine it does.

10. Well, that and the facial deformity.

Bwahaha. You just made me snort my caffeine. You are a mess. Thank you for the Saturday giggle. You'd never heard "toolbox?" I'm really old and I had heard of that...and some others.

Actually toolbox is pretty mild compared to what some of the nine year olds in my class call it! I have been known to blush then choke trying to suppress the giggling!

The word friend is used far too lightly. A friend is not someone you exchange a card with every Christmas, but someone who will always be there in happy times and sad, and one whom you would protect to within inches of your life.

Wow, that was pretty profound! Now about my toolbox..........

LOL at facial deformity and toolbox. My son hasn't learned that moniker yet. I just might have to share it with him. Hee!


I mentioned to Eldest the other night that I had a fairly wide open day Friday. Writer that he is, he wondered if I would perhaps like a wri...
