You know what I did yesterday?
Absolutely nothing interesting.
I walked Caroline to school and planned to stay for my weekly battle with the Xerox machine, but her teacher was out sick and therefore there were no copies to be made. Dang. Just as I’d almost mastered the one sided copy to two sided copy maneuver.
So instead I had to go for a run. Because, yes, I’m back on my Couch to 5k program. This has officially been the longest trip from the couch to a 5k in history. Frankly, I don’t even care about the 5K part of the equation anymore, but I’ve forgotten how to run without that annoying voice in my ear saying, “RUN NOW”.
After I got home I spent the rest of the day trying to catch up on email and thinking about how much my floors need to be mopped. Of course I didn’t do anything about it, but just thinking about it made me feel better.
And then I ran to Whole Earth to look for a pair of sensible shoes and realized sensible seems intrinsically linked to ugly. If I’m wrong, please tell me. My feet would be so grateful.
The good news is I ended up with a cute pair of socks so I have that going for me.
(This blog has just hit a level I always feared it would. I just told you I bought socks.)
(I am so sorry.)
But, wait, I have a topic for discussion today besides socks and sensible shoes.
Caroline came home from school on Thursday and announced that her teacher had put up a word cemetery in the classroom. And she put a few words in the cemetery that the class is no longer allowed to use when they write their papers.
Here’s the list so far:
And it’s made me think about words that I’d like to put in the word cemetery. More importantly, I want to know what words you’d like to see buried.
I say we start with “ointment”. And maybe throw in “relevant” for good measure because oh my word at the overuse.
How about you?
