bumbershoot (n) An umbrella. This word is an alteration of ‘umbrella’ plus an alteration of ‘(para)chute.’ And did I mention it’s also ‘fun’?

Life is so endlessly delicious.” (Ruth Reichl)
In my filing cabinet where I keep records of paid bills and income tax and bank statements and other boring and mundane but necessary stuff, one of the folders has the label “Stuff Worth Saving”. My e-mail also has a folder with the same name. So do my “pictures” and “documents” on my computer . This is the laziest way I know of to never have to mull over and make a decision about how to categorize something interesting. Just dump it in the stuff worth saving file. Well today I’m taking a few things out of the file and sharing them. Because if they’re worth saving, they should also be worth sharing.
I hope these made you smile. 🙂
What wound did ever heal but by degrees?
~William Shakespeare, Othello, 1604
Share three things that you have no patience for.
Sharing, thinking up three reasons for things, and sentences that end in a preposition.
How do I behave when I have to deal with these things? I get all snarky and sarcastic and my life is ruined.
(And now for my real answer.)
“I travel in worlds of unseen truths and untapped potentials, going beyond the obvious and visible to embrace those powers which are veiled from normal vision. I am passive by nature and very aware of the infinite potential all humans harbor within them. I am also very patient. I can wait for events to blossom in their own time.”
Sorry I can’t remember exactly where those words originated, but I think they’re from a Tarot card. They struck some chord deep within me and have been on my Facebook profile ever since. Because seriously, where else would you put something that damned profound.
I do have an infinite amount of patience. I am passive aggressive. I can wait you out. I have faith in karma. I believe that anticipation is half the fun.
