Things I Learned Today / Monday, August 9, 2021

Things I learned today…

I wish people who were in favor of the vaccine weren’t so militant about it. And I wish people who were not in favor of the vaccine weren’t so militant about it. (Do not state your case or argue on my post. These are things I learned today, not a debate forum. Please and thank you.)

People get made fun of for using filters. I like filters. If a filter makes your face look smooth, go for it. I don’t; however, like the ones that make you look like bunny rabbits and broccoli. Those are dumb.

I guess I’m finally at the point of not giving a single, solitary shit what anybody makes fun of. I’m still going to do whatever I want. I mean, who freaking cares?!

Words are flimsy, right? Sticks and stones and all that. We are good at remembering that when someone is mean to our kids. But why can’t we remember that about everything? It’s just words. Let people say whatever they want. As a matter of fact, it’s GREAT when they say whatever they want. Then you know where they stand. Perfect! Yet at the same time, they may be putting on, trying to be impressive, bloviating about things they know nothing about. JUST words.

You know, it’s actions and behaviors we better notice.

“Bloviating” is a good word. Just the sound of the word itself indicates the ongoing and obnoxious spewing of drivel.

I got to meet some new dancers today who had signed up online. So excited!

Keith cleaned up the back deck tonight and had it ready for sitting out when I got home. Out there right now!*swoon*

And George Strait plays…

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
