A veil of stupid comes down – We had a power outage. I worked for an electric utility for 25 years. I know how it works. It’s not magic. Yet every time I walked into a room I switched the light on (knowing in my head it was run by electricity). It was more than that. I tried to open the electric garage door opener. Since I couldn’t do much, I thought I’d vacuum. Hmmm….I finally picked up a magazine and went to a window to read.
Hanging out with friends – I try to write posts that entice readers to comment. Commenters are cool. Sometimes a conversation goes on between two commenters. Also cool. I have learned so much and laughed hard at some of the goings on! I appreciate folks who hover and don’t comment too!
Anyone else with a good nose? – My nose smells things I don’t want it to smell. Sometimes I can smell my own house. Because I have multiple cats, my house may have a smell. (It would be a warm welcoming cat smell of course.) Does anyone have any experience with electric devices that zap odors? I use plug-ins with scents but I was looking for something that killed the odor rather than masked it.
The new gym – Our front desk guy (who had been moved around and then moved back to my location) is leaving for a warmer climate. He’s moving to Delaware, near the beaches. I will miss him. He knew everyone by name and was very friendly. Not much of that at my new gym.
What would you do? – I walk with an older woman in her mid-80s. She is sharp and very smart but she occasionally can’t remember a word so I fill in her sentences. Just like an old married couple! I can’t help wondering if that’s offensive. If I don’t, she will stutter for a few minutes trying to remember the word. Would that annoy you?
So how was your week?
