#JusJoJan ~ 1/6/23

Linda continues to host us in style. Ritu supplies the word of the day. Your prompt for JusJoJan January 6th 2023, is “sweet.” Use the word “sweet” any way you’d like. Enjoy! Visit Ritu’s blog to read her post and say hello. HERE are the rules & ping back.

I overuse the word sweet quite often though I say it like this Saaaaaaweeeet! Usually after I hear something good. Sweet is right up there with 1980s cool.

Saaaaaaweeeet! Like an expletive but the happy kind. Yep believe it or not expletives can be sweet! Supposedly if you curse after hurting yourself the pain subsides faster. Hurling the profanity is almost instinctive. Yep I’m making stuff up, Sweet-sweet stuff. LOL. Semi-fact based because this is my twist on the hypoalgesic effect which is real unless like John shares what if the experts are making it all up? Ha!

Short & sweet, now I’m off to the races or what qualifies for the races, the rat race of my life.

As always, more to come.

Friday Book Club ~ 1/6/23

I read four books in six-ish days recently. I should check Goodreads for specific time but I’m too lazy. This is stream book club. Haha. I’m simply listing the titles, authors & one quote from my common place book. Reviews are on Goodreads, check them out there if interested.

  • Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret by Judy Blume. Obviously a re-read. Took me back & I really enjoyed the trip down memory lane. No idea why this book is on the banned list. I didn’t write a quote either. Too bad.
  • She’s Nice Enough Though Essays on Being Bad at Being Good by Mia Mercedes. “Jesus, Mary, & Joseph” may sound religious but it’s as close to an expletive as your grandma will ever say.
  • Dirty Daddy The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian by Bob Saget. Stamos was like, “Fuck that dog! How’d he get a movie & not us? A year later, the dog was dead.
  • The Match by Harlan Coben. This was a 2nd book but I really don’t think I missed out by reading out of order. I will get to Book # 1 eventually because I like Harlan’s style & some of the characters are in both. I’m doing what I always do, using book characters to fix my life. “The ugliest truth is better than the prettiest lie.”

And that’s all she wrote, until next time.

As always, more to come.
