Yesterday Jayedee shared a Simple Woman’s Daybook entry with her readers in blogland. After reading her entry, I clicked on comment and shared my two cents worth on as many points I could remember. Last night in the deep of night as I lay awake in my bed, of all the things I could ponder my comment to her post invaded my thoughts. Words are some of my favorite things. So much can be done with them. Expression is limited only to the word-spinner’s ability to spin. Jayedee told of a chicken breed she would like to add to her menagerie, the Silver-Spangled Hamburgs. These are beautiful, showy birds. I intended to say they are dingee (made up, non-existing word) like a blond, but I called these spectacular birds “dingy”…dull and dirty. (So…who’s calling who blond?) After shaking my head, I got a good laugh and drifted off to sleep.
Two things can be gleaned from this silly tale…
It’s healthy to laugh at ourselves on occasion. Otherwise life becomes way to serious and heavy.
Choose your words wisely or the words you spin may boomerang.
Egg count to date…209, and it’s early in this production day. Aren’t these beautiful?
Until next time…
