Things I Learned Last Week

1. It can be dangerous to alphabetize your spice drawer. Because that puts the cinnamon next to the chili powder. This all you need for an early morning “haven’t had my coffee yet” mistake.  Trust me.

2. I went to a pen club meeting last Sunday, and everyone there had beautiful handwriting. I want to find a meeting of doctors.

3. Does this ever happen to you? You start saying something and realize almost instantly … whoops. Wrong words, wrong audience. No way to finish this with grace.

Well, the other day I was thinking of the group TV on the Radio and I started singing, kind of to myself, but with my husband and kids around, the song Red Dress. And then I get to a part of the chorus that goes, “Come bear witness to the whore of Babylon.”

Let me just say: if you want everyone to stop what they are doing, and look up at you as if you have lost your mind, this is perfect.

  1. Ahh but if you had put Chili Powder far left, you could have put Whole Cinnamon Sticks to it’s right, then Cinnamon next to Cumin. So then the one you use in your coffee would be next to Cumin 😉

    1. Hey! I watched “Captain America: the First Avenger” last night. Between my oldest daughter and you, I felt I should. It was good, too.

      But no one could be cooler than you. 🙂
