risk being tarred and feathered – 271/366 (catch up)

How am I?

Excellent  😉 (see below)

Actually, I am not bad


“If an Englishman asks you ‘how are you?’, they only expect two possible answers: ‘not bad’ and ‘not too bad’. The former means ‘I am doing great’, the latter that you are about to commit suicide or have some terminal disease. With anything else, you risk being tarred and feathered. Also, if your answer is ‘excellent’ they take it as sarcasm.”

I actually do have a lot to be thankful for, I am a bit grumpy today, but that is kind of fun.


crushed by someone who loved me – 269/366 (catch up)

Who did I hug today?


No one. I rested my arms across my son’s shoulders as we got ready to head to school this morning.

While I don’t mind being touched, I am not one to go out and touch others anymore.  I do think I touch my son, much like I did this morning, quite a bit though.


In other news I am a month behind again. This was the post originally slated for Oct 2,  then moved about eight days further out due to my start date for this post-a-day crap. Maybe if I do two or three a day I can catch up?
