Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post with Mr.Linky and link back to me in your post (please). [Click on the FF button above for more information.] And now,on with the fragments!
***I think there should be words in our language for the distinction between natural, youthful aging (if that makes sense) vs. people who look younger because they've had Botox or plastic surgery. It's kind of like photography these days; I don't know how much to appreciate it until I know if it's been photoshopped or not. (To me, it makes a big difference.)
***Why is it that in movies and tv, whenever people open windows, there is never a screen?
***Please check out my Focus on Lent post if you think you might like to join me in a mission to and share images that represent the themes of rebirth, repentance, and sacrifice this Easter season.
***Blue Violet, of Nut in a Nut Shell offered my Favorite Friday Fragment last week:
My son got home last night from college for Spring Break. He devoured this rack of ribs within his first 15 minutes of being here. Pray for me.
That was really funny, Blue. Please accept this award in honor of your silliness.***In a shocking display today (Thursday), a student randomly called me a "F--king Bitch!!" (Seriously; I was shocked, as we had had a perfectly fine day prior.) Too bad, kid; your plan didn't work. See, I'm too smart for you; I know you said it (for no reason) just to get an extra day off this weekend (you had plans for Friday that didn't include school.) I didn't fall off the turnip truck just yesterday, Buddy. Your consequence? Coming to school tomorrow. If you truly thought I was a bitch today, I look forward to seeing your scowling face in the morning! (I'll try to keep my laughter on the inside.)
***Ever heard of Rules of Thumb? It's kind of like Wikipedia, Facebook-style. There are all kinds of quirky (and normal topics) like Winning at Blackjack, Talking to an American, and my favorite today, Controlling Your Cat (which everyone with a cat knows is impossible.) It was really entertaining, reading the comments of members going back and forth, and you can search by topic or even add your own Rules of Thumb.
***Here's a random comment from Charlie this week, as he chattered away, first thing in the morning on Wednesday. He picks up an inch-high stack of multi-colored Post-it notes and emphatically offers, "Hey, just so you know, you only have three of the purple ones left." (Of course, I thanked him profusely.) What a little cutie.
***Mel, of Girl in the Glasses, wrote this hilarious post last week Why I'm Not a Nurse, and I highly recommend it!
So, that's what I've got for you. Do share your fragments, will you? Here's where to leave the breadcrumbs...(Friday Fragments posts only, please.)
