I’m not sure why pink is the color of choice for tickled. Perhaps it has something to do with the blush of happiness. Perhaps not.
At any rate, ‘tickled pink’ is one of my favorite expressions. It’s just so….cute. Who could resist using such a phrase to describe the feeling of joy one has when one is favored with a gift or an expression of love or a great joke or whatever.
It can also express a bit of sarcasm. Wheeeeeeeeee.
Earlier I was involved in a discussion of sarcasm. Apparently it’s something one can love. Yeah? Okay, right!
We grow smart asses in my family, so sarcasm is a way of life. Most of the time we’re joking. Occasionally, not so much.
We also grow lard asses. Please don’t bother to check mine out. It’s there for all to see anyway.
Zach has an interview this afternoon with a downtown bike touring business. That’s exciting considering it’s his only mode of transport at the moment and even then he will have to borrow mine. I just know he will shine. He made my day with a B in his HOTEL class. That’s History of the English Language. Every time he mentioned the acronym, my brain kicked back to the eighties when I worked in a large hotel. Bartending, waiting, managing…I tried it all. Bartending was my favorite. Kept me seriuosly entertained. I loved the verbal bantering, the customer flirtation, the interaction with people from all over the world. And I was good at it.
Had nothing whatsoever to do with a life plan. It was a job. But we all know I haven’t decided what to be when I grow up.
I’m missing home. Especially on rainy days, like today. With the new career path, I’m not seeing hubby Monday through Wednesday. Some would say that is one way of not getting tired of him. Hmmmmm.
I miss Peanut.
And I really want to heat up the pool. I mean really, temperatures this cool and it’s almost June are just unheard of in my neck of the woods. We really need to address thie global warming issue. Weather like this is scary! We haven’t come close to 90 yet!
Some moons ago, my daughter shared this with me and so I will share this quote for the week:
“It is often easier to ask forgiveness than to ask for permission.” – Grace Hopper.
Oh how right that is! I’ve kept it in mind on many a shopping expedition. Try it. Really, it is so true. I haven’t tested it on a new car purchase, but I don’t see how it wouldn’t work. Or perhaps furnitured? A cleaning service? I certainly could use one of those. I’m still holding out for the vacuum that just sucks the whole house free of dirt, dust, and dog hair. Anyone have one of those? Where can I get one? Please help!
This has been a pretty good week so far. I’ve made a bit of progress. I’m looking forward to the weekend, however. I desperately need a nap!
