Although we were basically in recovery mode for the entire month of January, we were not completely out of touch with the comings and goings of the world around us. And fortunately some of those comings and goings provided us with our laugh of the day.
For example, we enjoyed the post on Facebook which said “My New Year’s resolution is to simply remember to write 2013 instead of 2012.” Now that is a New Year’s resolution we are more than willing to adopt.
We were also amused by a reported conversation between the Ohio faction of the family. As we understand it after seven plus hours in the car together while returning to Ohio from a trip to Washington D.C., the not-yet-3-year-old Widge got whinny. The resulting conversation evidently went like this:
Chris: It’s a good thing you are cute.
Widge: I’m not cute! I’m pretty!
Annie: Did she just say that?
We also got a real chuckle out of the care instructions for some socks we purchased during our recovery. The instructions read: “Machine wash in warm water with similar colors. Tumble dry low, use only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Do not iron.”
Do not iron? Perhaps we are missing something, but it would never have occurred to us to iron our socks. In fact we are of the opinion that the less we iron, the better we like it.
We also find it somewhat amusing that boxes of candy are required to include “Nutrition Facts” as we tend to think that there is little, if anything, nutritional about most candy. Thus when we plowed into a small box of dark chocolate longhorns, dark chocolate, pecans and carmel, from Lammes Candies Since 1885, Inc. of Austin, Texas, we ignored the “Nutrition Facts” as we did not want them to get in the way of our enjoyment of some very delicious candy which we received for Christmas. It is possible, we think, to have too much information for one’s own good.
