Random jottings

I can't think in 3D. When faced with one of those whirly topiary creations I cannot visualise how you would cut it. That sort of thing.

Driving home from work today a driver coming from the other direction flashed his lights at me. Ah-ha, I thought, I know what that means: police speed thingy up ahead.
Wrong.
Sheep in the road.

At home I was about to pour milk into my mug when Husband snatched the bottle - how uncouth, not in a milk jug - from me and poured the contents down the sink, leaving me gaping.
'There was a maggot in it earlier when I poured some in my coffee,' he explained.
'Oh, that's okay then. Oh no, wait, that's the bottle I used for my cereal this morning!'

Dental check-up this afternoon. I momentarily forgot my long-ago-instilled terror of dentists when I found out I didn't have to pay for my check-up (because of my extreme old age.)

All fine, so that's my eyes, hearing and teeth that have been checked this year so far and all passed with flying colours. With the obvious if unspoken addendum, 'for your age'.

Sometimes I think I am kind of old for my age.

Other times I am a teenager.

Go figure.

I try my best, leslie!

I don't ever feel old for my age, katney. And I don't believe you act it either!
