The Definition of “Useless”

It’s not a word which requires a definition. And nor does it usually call for an example for explanation, being sufficiently self-explanatory, ya’ know? Still, if you think about it, could you actually define ‘useless’, without looking it up in your Funk & Wagnell’s?

See that picture up there? That’s pretty much what I feel like at this stage of recovery from this damnable stroke. Useless.

“A picture is worth a thousand words.”

Just sayin’.

(wonder if i could incorporate this into my novel Waking Up Dead! – that is, if i ever stop being so USELESS!!!)

The Velcro Toss

I had an idea many years ago on how to deal with my progeny when they hit my last nerve. The “Velcro Toss”.

Picture one large blank wall, covered in one half of velcro…the sticking part.

Now picture a kid’s jumper (overalls to our followers who actually speak the Queen’s English!) made out of the stickY half of velcro.

Kids get rowdy…toss them in their velcro jumpers onto the velcro wall. Let stew for an hour or two. Peel off. Repeat as necessary!

I have had a stroke and will now be an annoyance to my children. I hope they’ve forgotten about my threats of using the Velcro Toss when they were small and lovably annoying.

Just sayin’.

Talking About Betrayals…

And here I was on about how my eyes were betraying me…..well that’s what  get for complaining…..talk about betrayals and sure enough the whole body obliges.

Week before last  – the 12th I think – I had a stroke and have been in the hospital ever since.

(It’s hard to type with one thumb on this little tablet screen let me tell you.  Hence no punctuation to speak of! )

Anyway here I am in hospital till I get a place somewhere for physical therapy. Just wanted to let you know what has kept me offline for so many long!

Catch you all later!
