Very observant, peacejet.
Kind of like how my grandmother could make a lemon meringue pie without any lemons, the main ingredient subject to availability. My mom always had
great discretion when it came to preparing a meal the night before her weekly grocery shopping trips to restock the pantry and fridge; whatever it
was, whatever it looked like, we ate it.
kidflash, I'm still thinking of the Iphone and similar items. A big hand holds the phone, while a smaller hand with small fingers touches the apps
buttons or keys. Oh, yes, you're right; my friend shared with me an advertisement for a cell phone with big buttons. And I gave her a gift membership
Sigh, whaaa, dear sweet whaaa. Thank you for the compliment. You have such a ....such a....manly way with the English language.
Whaaa, I have tried to have my way with other languages, Russian, Hawaiian, the highly romantic French, and I was forced to take two years of German
in college but had a rough time because I was speaking it with a Spanish accent after having had completed two years of secondary Spanish. These other
languages spurned me, so I must continue to entertain myself with my first and only language, English.
Ok, so it's Valentine's Day, greetings and felicitations to you all!!
And this brings to mind how chocolates are packaged. I love to open a
heart shaped (or rectangular will do) box of chocolates to see the contents nestled snugly within the paper perimeter.
What I don't like to see is what happened my first Valentine's Day with MrD, when I bought him his favorite candy, chocolate covered cherries. I was
so embarrassed. I bought him a large box containing (or so I was lead to believe) these huge, luscious treats, dripping with cherry cordial. When he
opened it, I gasped. Not only were the pieces minute, (come on, you can't even grow a cherry that small!) but in the plastic holder in which they
each had their own dinky compartment, the distance between them could have been used to illustrate the light year distance between stars.
Hey, this is my thread, so I think I will digress, derail it if you will, but then, you know what happens when trains get derailed. Nonetheless,
speaking of VD...no, that's not right!!...how does one test message "Happy Valentine's Day"??...anyway, I do love the English translations of
Mexican romantic poets, and the translations of the Sufi songs of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Ok, back to topic...
