T: Idiom of the Day ~ 4/23/21

Starts with T – Troubled Waters

Jilly’s Take: Oh man!  Why did I pick this one?  Glutton for punishment.  Yet without trouble waters, I would not appreciate the beauty in life.  “Troubled waters make for a skilled mariner” was in a fortune cookie I had once upon a long time ago.  I remember when I used to collect my fortunes, leaving the tiny strips of paper at my desk in the office.  I’d randomly re-read them to bring comfort or laughter.  Some fortunes are very funny/punny/clever. You’re supposed to add “in bed” at the end as you read them for a chuckle.  At least that is what K always did when we went to Bei Fang for lunch out.  Yum!   Now I want some pork fried rice and wonton soup.  For breakfast?  Sure!  Why the hell not?!?!?  See what the Rona has done. 

Originally my mind was taking me to write about Lulu’s trouble waters.  But that is not my story to tell.  Glad I went with a sweet memory instead.

    1. Hope you’re feeling better now. Out of the four of us, we all had varying degrees of symptoms after shot two. Fortunately all four responded to Tylenol and sleep. Mine was less than 24 hours but when it hit, felt like a freight train.

      1. Yes a freight train. At one point in the middle of the night, it felt like someone was poking needles in the knuckles of my hands, not to mention everything hurt from the bottom of my toes to my hair follicles. LOL! The nausea has lingered. 🙂 I’m glad yours only lasted 24 hours. What a blessing! 🙂
