Everyone seems to be posting screen captures of their computer clock today. I might as well join the club with one I captured a “while back.”

The WiFi strength looks good, all things considered…

Bless My Soul, It’s Confession Time

I’ve heard that you can say almost anything about someone else if you follow it with bless his/her soul. For example, you can say, “He’s a backstabbing jerk, bless his soul” and people nod and smile. Try that without the bless his soul and it sounds harsh, as it should.

I was excited to learn recently that you can say almost anything about yourself if you precede it with confession. For example, “Confession: I’m awesome at WordPress hacking.” That doesn’t sound as conceited as it would have without the confession. Better yet, confession also softens admitting something less than cool. “Confession: I can play ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’ by hitting my head.” See. It almost sounds like I’m self-aware and a little embarrassed.

Confession: I’m so much smarter and musical than that jerk Donald Trump, bless his soul. ;-)

International Travel

I find international travel to be such a mixed bag. I come home to a beautifully cleaned shotgun, but they seem to forget to feed the pitbull. ;-)
